Aw theres nothing worse than having to watch your weight when you are ill. All you want to do is gorge out on chocolate and crisps and all the things we shouldnt eat. Try making some home made soup or something low in calories to keep you afloat and start fresh when you are better :) Everyone knows veggies and lots of water helps get you better.

Get well soon and stay strong x x x

Indeed - if you're that poorly, you kind of have to do what your body is telling you. As long as you don't just eat what *habit* is telling you... If you feel that you need to eat, I think a veg (or perhaps chicken) soup sounds warm and nourishing but won't do your weight much damage. Try to minimise the carbs, if you can.

If it's just a teeny blip and you get back to 100% straight away, then bloomin' amazing for you. But if you do eat some more, then don't be too down on yourself. You'll probably feel more confident about getting back to 100% once you're feeling better.

Whatever you do, DON'T leave the forums because you feel you've failed or cheated or any of that crap - you're human, and you're ill. We will help you get back to it...

Take care of yourself,

As the saying goes: 'feed a cold, starve a fever.'

Hot soups are best :)
Get plenty of rest, fluids and hot drinks hun...A trip to the docs maybe in order for that chest infection :/

Chin up hun, Get well soon xxx

The chunky soups were a god send when I had a chest infection recently. And they didn't make me break the diet badly...but sometimes your body needs more to repair itself, as it can't keep you going and make you feel better with a bit more going in. Once your better you'll be back on it no probs :) x x x Get Well Soon x x x

I've got the same problem. Been 100% for almost 4 weeks now but ihad tonsillitis last week and now got a rotten cold with a nasty cough:-(
I had to eat tonight and had a chicken salad (no dressing) so I hope that'll keep me in ketosis for now and I'll speak to my pharmacist tomorrow about what to do

So sorry to hear that, Carol. I think you've done the sensible thing, for what it's worth. Best of luck tomorrow, and I hope they help.

Thanks,
Spoke to the pharmacist today and told her my plan to have 2 shakes and 1 meal (as low carb as can be) and she agreed it would probably be best to do that till I'm better then get straight back on 100% which I want to do.
I've got a really croaky voice now and I just hope it doesn't go completely as it's difficult enough to teach people to drive when I can talk let alone when I can't!!
