Honestly, tea tree oil and Gold Bond work really well for me. Also, wear sandals, slippers, or go barefoot for an hour or so after a shower before putting socks on. Change your socks and reapply oil & powder a few times a day.

Coconut meat. I think if you eat the meat of a whole coconut (which is not much) you get around 1500 calories. I can see someone easily eating 3 pieces a day. That would surely help.
