You know that line in The Devil Wears Prada
? "I'm only one stomach flu away from my goal weight!"
Well, it's not true for me! I just spent 2 solid weeks completely knocked out by a flu bug. It was miserable, and I'm actually believing that the 0 lb weight loss (at least there was a 0 lb weight gain) had more to do with not moving (at ALL) and metabolism.
I just read in the latest shape or fitness mag that when you cut calories more than 20%, your body's immune system suffers a bit without the nutritional support. So maybe I should have thought about that BEFORE i went on a drastic 1300 cal / day diet...
anyway. just my thoughts today. Here's hoping NONE of you get bitten by the nasty flu bug and get "the crud"!
