    I think when you are ill it is recommended you go up to 810 (don't quote me on that, but sure I saw it somewhere). I guess it makes sense, you need the energy to fight off the illness and build your immunity. I'm not sure about the lozenges, perhaps the spray would be better... but when it boils down to it your health is more important, so whatever is needed to get better. Though I always find the lozenges don't really do a huge amount that a paracetemol wouldn't do, and really I just like the taste.

    I hope you feel better soon, there seems to be a lot of things going round.

    I'm sure I've read 810 too... Don't worry about Cambridge, just take care of yourself and get better. You need that food if you're poorly.

    Oh no, Poor you :(

    You need to be on 1200 or above whilst you have the symptoms as you need more nutrition to fight the infection.

    Hope you feel better shortly :hug99:

    Also if you continue with CD at 1200 cals you need to arrange for somebody to collect your diet for you.

    Hope you get better soon.

    Got in touch with my CDC, she couldnt advise me!!! She did say play it by ear, see how I feel on what amount I want to eat. She thought that with all the vitamins, etc that I get in SS, I should be ok. 1200 looks too much for me to prepare, at the moment anyway. Would I be ok on 810??
