What's your rule when you are sick?
 
Found out today I have strep throat accompanied by a high fever, nausia, swollen neck, shivers, you name it.

Tomorrow is a DD and I'm afraid sticking with 500 calories will make me worse. What do you when you are sick?

Do you even feel like eating? I'm sick, and I could only manage 212 calories today.

I let my body dictate. Often times if I'm not feeling well, I have little to no appetite, so I respect that my body is wanting to focus on healing rather than digestion. But if I'm hungry, I eat.

Hope you feel better asap! :console:

I haven't been sick for years. I just realized that. BUT, if I do get sick, all bets are off as to how much I'm going to eat or not eat on any day I'm feeling lousy. It'll just be however much makes me feel better and whatever food makes me feel better. Or nothing. Whatever makes me feel better is the key! LOL

And then when I'm feeling better again, it'll be right back to JUDDD.

This is how I've always dealt with it on other diet plans. I haven't been sick on JUDDD yet, but if I was the kind of sick you are I think I'd just eat/drink whatever I wanted. I would want to have plenty of fuel to fight it.

Chicken soup/broth, low calories but healing properties.

I was sick yesterday and it was a ud, but it turned into dd. I just couldn't
eat so I ended up with 2 dds in a row.

But today much better so it will be ud today.

I eat if I want to, or I don't. I take the medicine I'm suppose to, I rest and I don't stress about food.

JUDDD will be around when I get better and getting better is all I care about when I have been sick. :D
