    Ive been feeling ill all day, headache, sore throat and achey....what is the recomendations on eating? I have 2 girls to look after so really don't want to be poorly for an extended period but am loathed to eat too much. Is it possible to make a quick recovery without eating? Im disapointed because I've not had a sick day in 3 years and it seems strange its now when I am not eating.
    Help! xxx

    Girls, just keep up your fluids. Have some herbal tea. Take paracetamol or a lemsip if you are fluey. Lots of people on here have had colds and bugs and stuck to tfr with no ill effects. So unless you think you are much worse than that try and stick it out.
    Get tucked up in bed and keep sipping water for the throat.

    Thank you! Just bummed on feeling so rubbish I think, especially when I'm usually the only one in the house that escapes unscathed where bugs are concerned (I work in a hospital lab so am exposed to a lot!)
    Sometimes its too easy to find an excuse to give in....will try my best to not let it beat me xxx

    HI there yes you can take sudafed I have been for the last three days as I have sinus blockage.
    Eating should have no difference in how well you feel hun, remember we get all the nutriants our bodies need and then we MUST drink up to 4 ltrs of water, you know the doctors always say drink more fluids make it water if possible.
    In fact you probably wouldn't get as many nutrients from eating as you are on LT.
    Try maybe streching out your shakes through the day so you get a little energy boost every few hours, have 6 instead of three just for today and be commited to your water intake, make it warm water to get the comfort feeling, you can do this hun.

    Thank you, don't feel like eating today or having my shakes to be honest. Will keep drinking the water and try and force one down in a little while. Have taken sudafed so hopefully the face ache will calm down soon! Girls are busy drawing and making Valentines cards for their friends so apart from the occasional arguement over whos using the pink, they are quiet and well behaved!
    Heres to rest and recouperation! xx

    I found on this diet the dreaded cold sore reared its head, and that was day 3!! I am sure last time it took weeks and weeks to feel poorly.
    I know it is dreadful and you feel weak and not good but soon your body will fight it off and you will feel so good, its odd starving the body gives you so much energy.. Soon it will come to you xx
