Food poisoning or flu?

Monday, January 28, 2013

Last week was not so fun for me. I ended up getting sick. Still not positive, but I believe and my doctor concurred, that I had food poisoning. Not fun! Anyway, my eating was way out of whack because my stomach was. So for a whole week, I pretty much ate carbs-crackers, bread, toast, rice, bananas and the like. All the stuff I don't eat when I am sticking to my plan! Boy, that white bread sure tasted good. Funny though, I found myself craving protein! But my stomach warned me to take it easy. So, now that my tummy is feeling a whole lot better, I am eating the way I should. I want to be able to fit in my dress for Easter. How will I accomplish that? By sticking to my plan!

    MKMMARTY- I believe I got it from a restaurant and they know I had this issue. They did not have any other reports. I did not have any tests done to confirm it because my doctor said by the time I got results, I would be over it. I guess the only reason I should have done that is to know for certain and the restaurant could know as well. Nonetheless, it will be a while before we go back there.

    I do hope you fee better. I will not argue with your doctor - but only sick for 24 hours I say you had a flu bug - But since you were sick for a whole week I would agree with the doctor it most likely was food poisoning.
Did you get tests to confirm?
Remember to wash all your fruit and vegetables - never trust who else may or may not have handled them and if they had clean hands.
