Eat Blueberrries...Similar to tea, blueberries are a powerful antioxidant that contains diarrhea-fighting tannins, also eating yogurt during a bout of diarrhea is also helpful.

Rest so you will have more energy to fight off the germs that are making you ill...stick with non-irritating foods that are gentle on the stomach. Salted crackers,Soda crackers,Bland cereal ,Dry toast ,Rice Tapioca ,Boiled or baked potatoes, Bananas,Applesauce, Chamomile tea, chicken soup and plain yogurt maybe with a little honey as honey fights bacteria too!

Hope your better soon!

Remember the BRATY diet! :)

Most importantly, get rest and avoid the junk food. If you're like me, you crave junk food when you're sick, but it does nothing to help your body heal and replenish itself.

Hope you get better soon! *HUGS*

I don't feel much like eating, but I am trying to get in fruits, vegetables and protein, and lots of water. Even though I'm running a temp (101.8 last night) the doctor doesn't want to see me because really, there's nothing that can be done. Seven to ten days of this...yikes. It's so unpleasant. I have to see what I might be able to eat for breakfast...not that I feel like eating anything.
