Unhappy Cold & Flu Season and affects on weight loss?

cold and flu season has finally hit my house.
so, i just wonder how many of you hit a stall or lose more when your sick?

I'm miserable, got a headache, sore throat, body aches, runny nose, ect
i don't have much of an appetite and just want to sleep.

how do i make sure i get enough calories while sick?
one of my big problems i had was never eating and i have worked hard trying to increase my food to the minimum daily calories.

I'm not cutting anything out, just trying moderation.

so what should i try to eat that won't hurt my throat?
I'm already drinking hot honey tea and lemon tea.

thx

prolly depends on how much ice cream you eat to cure sore throats. :P

honestly though I haven't been sick at all since feb 2008, so I don't even remeber. Which is prolly good. ha.

Unless I have a stomach flu and I'm vomiting or a really bad flu with a high fever, I end up gaining a bit. I tend to comfort eat. Right now I have a bad headache and a sore throat and I desperately wanna eat. I've already gone over my calorie limit by almost 300 calories which is nothing since I tend to binge when it's like this. I"m going to try not to give in tonight. I really hope you feel better soon.

I like soup when I'm not feeling well. It's very comforting.
