    Today, I am off work :( Been on CD now for 8 days but yesterday came down with a really sore throat and head cold. I've not had a cold for years and I cant help thinking its because I've not had the same amount of vitamins in me that I have previously from eating loads of fruit. Is this silly? I know it is but I feel crap. I went to the chemist and got some lemsips and hall soothers, then it came to me that the hall soothers may have calories in them and they do!! :cry::eek: I've already had two!

    I'm not sure what to do, shall I just ride it out and hope it will go away, take more vitamin supplaments and take the lemsips and hallsoothers and hope for the best? :sigh::jelous:

    i dont know what to say but I had a really really bad sore throat. I just stuck it out and it went eventually. I rang my cdc and asked she said no to soothers, lemsip, strepsils stuff like that. Is there anyway you could see a doctor today? maybe he/she will give you some anti b's?
    I do hope you get better soon, it bad been sick but worse been sick and on this diet!!

    Hmmm I would suggest, paracetamol for your cold, or lemsip capsules, they don't appear to have citric acid, but check the ingredients.
    For your sore throat you could gargle with TCP, and maybe check out chloroseptic spray, which would numb it, again check the ingredients.

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

    I had the no sugar strepsils when I was poorly, they seemed to do the trick but not sure if they had citric acid in them. I don't know about you, but I think that you need to get well, and if you come out of ketosis for a couple of days then so be it. It just means that it may take you an extra week to get to goal, is that so bad in the grand scheme of things?

    And as for your vits, you get 100% of the RDA for everything if you have 3 packs a day, so don't think that you are deficient in anything just because you aren't eating!

    Hope you feel better soon.
