I'm sick!

I have a cough that won't go away and fatigue like crazy How do you count the calories in cough drops, cold syrups, etc on DDs?

Feel better and forget about counting calories in meds. I even went over my DD calories right before I got the flu because I was so darn hungry, and figured it was my body's way of preparing to fight! JUDDD forgives, so do what you need to do to get better and just come right back on plan when the "fight" is over!
A man asked Gautama Buddha, "I want happiness." Buddha said, "First remove "I," that's Ego, then remove "want," that's Desire. See now you are left with only "Happiness.”

Sorry the bug got you. I've been hearing of so many who are getting this, this year, and it sounds like a nasty cold/flu thing. Hope you feel better soon. Just take care of yourself.
Best wishes, Pat

Sorry to hear you've got a cough. A lot of cough medicines come Sugar Free - I would see if any are available. Then I wouldn't count them (wouldn't anyway!)

Be well.

Embrace a little hunger. It is the sign of healing.

Hunger is not an emergency.

It's not what you eat between Christmas and New Year that makes you fat, it's what you eat between New Year and Christmas.

I use sugar-free cough drops and cold medicine and wouldn't count either. (And I just realized that I haven't been sick since I started JUDDD and usually I catch every single thing my little girl brings home from preschool.)

I hope you get better soon! Drink lots of warm liquids.

I never count cold meds, supplements or any of that stuff either. Just do what you need to do to feel better, then come back at it!

If you want something badly enough, you'll find a way. If you don't you'll find an excuse.
