Wish I could give you a miracle cure, but if it's any consolation I'm off work with tonsilitis too and my cravings have gone through the roof over the last couple of days. I'm doing SS+ and managed to stick with it but all I really fancy is comfort food. Hope you're feeling better soon. x.

:hug99: to those with colds and sore throats :hug99:

You really need to take yourself up a plan. Maybe 810 minimum. It's not a good idea to VLCD through an infection as you don't have enough to fight it effectively.

Make sure you are drinking enough. If you have the water flavourings, the orange made with hot water is psychologically good. Along with some paracetamol.

Also drinking hot/warm water throughout the day you keep your throat moist.

If you are given antibiotics, check them out with your CDC to see if you need to take them with a shake or before.

Hope you feel better soon!

Make some thyme infusion for you throat just buy a sprig and make a tea its antiseptic and soothing it worked well for me a couple of weeks ago. Rest plenty honeys don't over do it. Try making a ice smoothie with a shake as ice cream always makes your throat easier.
