can you tell me if i will b okay still having my packs or do i really have to eat something obviously im not going to have a big meal just need advice or if anyone can remember anything they have been told previously. thanks

Lighter life is very similar to cambridge isnt it?
I have just been very ill, started flu like, then got a nasty chest infection and have been very poorley for three weeks. I wasnt well enough to even consider doing my diet and felt so ropey that I started off with some scrambled egg on toast.
It made me feel a bit better to eat and I felt better equipped to fight the illness, now i am not really sure if eating 'proper' food did help because I was so poorley for so long, but it did make me feel better.
The downside is that I have found it VERY difficult to get back on track with CD. I havent actually put any weight on! but then again I havent lost any either. I am amazed that I haven't gained weight because I have eaten whatever I wanted whenever I wanted since starting to get better.
I think I am back on track now, but last week I did SS for three days, got into ketosis, then blew it again.
It is extremely difficult to get back onto a VLCD once you start to eat again, but your health does come first.
I would say, if you are not EXTREMELY ill, then DONT come off your diet.
I wont be coming off it again once i get settled back into it.
Good luck!

Sorry you are unwell, I would say ring your LLC or headoffice for advice.
Hope your feeling better soon.

I would try to stay on the diet and drink plenty of warm fluids. The doctors always say keep hydrated, but really if you do become really ill I would advise contacting the LLC and ring the doctor.

Hope you are feeling better hon. Tea always settles me when I have a tummy bug - I'd just keep to your packs, keep them on the thin side and sip them, maybe have half a pack at a time.

Hang in there......best to stay on the diet if you can, as said, getting back on it can prove very challenging for some.

Good luck, let uys know how you get on.
