    What to eat while sick..






    Hi everyone - I had a quick question..
    Ive been on a long cut and it WAS coming along nicely when I became sick.
    I have a respiritory gunk in my lungs and I have had it for 5 days now. Ive stuck to my diet except one cheat meal on Sunday ...

    And then it occured to me that maybe I should raise my calories to maintanence until Im well (maybe its not helping to eat low cal)? Ive been at 10-12 cal per lb..
    Im 114. what do yall think?

    PS: this is not an excuse to eat cheat meals, Im thinking keep it clean but just add more food? Im not training either.
    If I do add would it be safe to add in the form of carbs. Im on lo carb for cutting.
    Oh, and if Im not doing a whole lot, how much should I expect to 'gain'

    your body definetly needs a caloric excess when there is an illness present. you may even want to over-feed for a week at 110% of maintenance cals...
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    I eat less when sick mostly because of a loss of appetite, of course it depends on the illness, if it's gastrointestinal I purposely try and eat very little.

    chicken noodle soup!! Seriously though, I'd go for maintenance and not workout until I felt better.
    Only time will tell if it was time well spent!
