Do you ever want to Eat when you're sick to feel better?

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

I now know feeling punky all week is not allergy. Finally ended up with sore throat and cough. I've been babying myself for 2 days. Too sick to exercise.
The ice cream in the garage freezer (there on purpose) has been calling out to me. Debby Debby come get me!!! You'll be glad to know I've resisted. I did give in to 2 tbls of Pnut butter, which I have sworn off of, but I'm ending the day with 1220 calories. At least, I hope I'm ending the day with that haha. Why do you want sugar when your sick? Why oh why?

    Oh how timely! Been struggling with same this week after reaction to a vaccine. The ice cream in our freezer that usually doesn't interest me has been chanting incessantly. In addition to comfort food habits, I think cravings come from looking for the energy surges from the carbs and sugar. Trust this too shall soon pass!

    Sick or not when have a craving usually give in with just a taste and feel satified, comforted and the food is not forbidden which is probably why am one of the slowest losers
    One day at a time

    I want to eat just for the pure comfort of it. Good for you staying away from the ice cream! Sherbert or sorbet would be better, as the milk in the ice cream will only create more mucus. emoticon

    I don't know but I can totally relate! I've had an abscessed tooth - really bad one - dentist couldn't get out all of the infection in one visit - I have to go back! Hasn't slowed down my appetite one whit! Sigh!

    I don't know, but I try to get that craving satisfied with green tea or soothing lemon and honey tea and it not only helps me out with feeling bad, it helps my sweet tooth!

    I hope you feel better soon!
