I always struggle with dieting when sick. Especially things that affect taste buds like colds and migraines. With a cold I generally have enough energy to count calories but always end of feeling ilke I'm starving, likely because of the extra calories being burned by coughing. With a migraine, I am just happy to find something that lets me not throw up.
I'm 24 hours into a migraine right now. Last night, I needed to eat something, but the only thing that didn't sound like puke was mac and cheese. I made it up, didn't bother counting calories, and felt gross afterwards (although thankfully not nauseous). I could just feel in my body that I had eaten such empty calories, and wasn't getting fuel from my food. What an interesting feeling! 3 weeks ago, I wouldn't have been able to say that I could tell the difference.
Does anyone else struggle with finding the right foods when sick?
