5lb loss and upset tummy

Monday, February 18, 2013

So I'm super happy I lost 5lbs but on another note my tummy has been bugging me all day.

Any suggestions of what I can do to help it soothe down. I feel sluggish and it kinda hurts to do anything. No appetite at all. feelings icky....

    Congratulations on the 5-pound weight loss! I hope your stomach feels better soon! If not, I highly recommend ginger tea as well! I take that when my stomach is upset.

    I swear by my ginger tea; I have several varieties. My Mom always gave us flat ginger ale (warm) when we were younger to settle the tummy, and saltines. I like dry toast these days.

Feel better!!! emoticon

    some light yoga twists can aid digestion, and realax the muscles. i find a warm sprite also can help when not feeling the best.

    My standard go-to was crackers or a piece of toast with peanut butter along with lots of fluids and rest. Since I can't have wheat anymore, I've been having to learn what works.

    Peppermint tea and ginger are both good for bad tummies.

    Gatorade is good as it gives you back the electrolytes that you are losing
Best wishes to you as you get better
One day at a time

    I agree with LALMEIDA. Just relax and drink fluids. I'd also recommend eating plain foods like crackers and toast. emoticon

  I usually have chicken soup and some saltines for my tummy. It also depends on the source of the belly problem with me. I have crohns disease so mine can either be related to that or a bug. You can also try applesauce, or clear liquid foods like jello or popcycles. I would call my doc if it goes on for more than 24 hours. Make sure you stay hydrated. Ginger ale, gatorade, water (if you can tolerate). emoticon
