    I just wanted to see if there is any one out there that has the same issue as me as I do think I am the only one who when they are I'll with a virus still wants to eat!

    I can barley swallow and feel sick yet I'm still thinking about my stomach I think it is partly boredom but all I want is chocolate and naughty things and to lay in bed and be a fat slob....

    Why can't I be someone that is turned away from food ?

    I know what you mean, I didn't feel well over the weekend and it seemed a natural reflex to want to eat (despite not feeling hungry) and constantly had my nose in the fridge looking for something to pick at and to feel 'satisfied'. I think it's a combination of two things; comfortable familiarity (when you were a child and ill you were given your favorite foods maybe?) and the fact that your body is fighting something so needs the additional support in terms of proteins, sugars, carbs etc. I think this is ok, you're using a lot more energy than you think when you're unwell, so don't fret about it.

    It's not helped by the fact you feel rotten so the last thing you want to do is go shopping or cook! Not only that, but it's not always easy to prepare for feeling ill. I don't know what to suggest as I think I was lucky at the time as I only had SW-friendly things in the house - but I didn't feel so lucky about it at the time!!

    I wouldn't worry about it though, it's far more important you fight the bug and get better. SW will always be there another day when you're feeling up to it.

    Get well soon!

    I am off work at the mo and am still eating. It would take a hell of a lot to stop me from eating! Its not good not to eat though so go with what your body wants!

    Yeh I know but the last thing I want is fruit when I'm poorly why can't we crave good things! I might make some sw chips they are always a comfort although at the moment feeling very sick thanks I'm glad I'm not alone!

    I still eat too, although after the bad tummy Monday night I didn't eat until 8 pm Tuesday.
    However if you have a cold/ sinusitis/cough avoid chocolate and dairy products as it causes your body to make more mucus, the last thing you need is more snot!

    I still eat when im ill, it's horrible. Plus, I'm on the injection so technically I don't get a *week but I still get the stomach cramps, feel generally crappy and want to eat loads of stodgy junk on, what would be, my *week. So far this week I've managed to look after those cravings with a sw chip butty, sw fish and chips and a cooked breakfast with edgy bread. Not much superfree for me there though :-(

    You're definitely not the only one. It doesn't seem to matter what ailment I have, I will still want to eat, and often more than usual or at least not the good stuff.

    My husband could go off food for days if he's a bit poorly and I've always been so envious of him. He had a tummy bug back at the start of March - I know because I had planned a meal out for his birthday and we had to cancel. Anyway, he's still picky about his food, and won't touch anything creamy as it's "so rich it makes him feel ill again" :eek: I just can't understand that at all.

    I never lose my appetite when I'm ill....infact, often even before I know I'm getting a cold, my appetite increases and I de rail....and then then, low and behold, I get a cold.
    I guess it's just our bodies eating for protection and stamina!!

    Extra lean bacon and an egg fried in fry light.
    OR sw fish and chips, they're lovely and very good for the stodgy food cravings, if it wasn't for the injection I would be on my star week this week so have had sw chip butty, fish and chips and a cooked brunch this morning.
