I just lay low as much as possible. I still try and work out but i give myself a good break afterward. I also do the usually chicken soup, sprite, crackers. I guess it all depends on what exactly is not feeling good!

I revert to my childhood....Mom's remedies used to include jello, 7-up, chicken soup.....things that are easy on the stomach. If you can tolerate easy to digest foods, then add some foods with high calorie/ nutritional value in small amounts.

Baby yourself until you feel better! Hope it's soon!

I am sick right now and have been. when I first get sick I stick with water, soup & boullion. mild, mild! then start focusing on toast and then whatever sounds good.
I have a very sensitive stomach so I have to take it really slow.

I agree - really pay attention to what your body is saying. Do I feel like a banana? No... whatever your body is craving, stick to that - there's usually a reason. & eat healthy stuff... forgo any junk until you're feeling better (unless popsicles for a sore throat, etc.) - as much water as possible :/

Listen to your body. Make sure you get your fluids in. For an upset stomach, try clear fluids first (eg water, weak tea, broth, gelatin, fruit juice diluted 1:1 with water) and then go to mild foods (eg. toast, cereal, soup, yogurt, milk if you can tolerate it). Most healthy people are just fine with a few days like that but if it goes on for longer than a week or so you probably want to check with your doctor.

Hope you feel better soon!

When you are not feeling well and you really do not have much of an appetite, what is the best thing to do to get your nutrition in?
