Nutrition FYI for you!

I just learned this last week. DON'T starve a cold or a fever. You need the protein to make more antibodies. :)

    I was hoping you were declaring McNuggets a superfood.

    Yeah, I was hoping you'd say potato chips were an acceptable substitute for vegetables.

    I was hoping you would say Ice Cream is one of the good food groups.

    Only if paired with a delectable cubed package of sweet and sour sauce. Duh.

    Isn't the old saying "Feed a cold, starve a fever?" or something like that?  I always get super hungry when I'm sick.  I guess that's a good thing :)  Unless I'm sick to my stomach, of course.  Or have mono.

    The saying always confused me too! I get really hungry when I am sick too.

    Anytime I can sit on my ass at home and veg, I'm hungry. This includes all sicknesses except stomach viruses. Hell, I've had horrible munchies all week and I'm at work.

    I'm home sick now actually with a horrible cold and mild fever.  This is the 3rd time since May I've been sick and it's getting old.  But yeah, I've definitely been eating.  I had eggs and toast this morning, then a bowl of frosted mini wheats, then a PB sandwich.  Now I'm contemplating heating up some soup. And I've been downing Vitamin Water like nobody's business. But I still feel like poo that's been run over by a truck.

    I also get really hungry when I'm sick. I tried to think about why and I came up with 2 reasons:

    1. It's usually when I have kind of a sore throat, so sometimes when swallowing something, it helps my throat feel better. Kind of like scratching an itch. That probably sounds strange or really effing stupid but I don't know how else to explain it.

    2. When I'm sick it's harder to smell and taste foods, which is one of the best parts about eating yummy foods. So I think I eat a lot more (or have the urge to) because I want to taste the food.

    Or maybe I'm just a freak of nature.   ; )

    Yeah the food won't cure really fast but it will help your body fight the infection quicker. Yaou are on the right track. I just found this bit of nutirition education pretty neat so I wanted to share.

    Ha! To be honest, when I posted that I had some second thoughts about making such a definitive statement.
