hey everyone, i need a little help here. :?: now, this isn't the atkins flu i have. this is a bad cold with allergies. my sinuses are swollen, i have lots of drainage and stuffiness, coughing, sneezing, low grade fever, aches and a sore throat. i'm not sleeping or resting well as you can imagine. i spent a lot of yesterday outside and got sick due to the heat and the amount of drainage in my stomach, so unfortunately there are foods that i now cannot even stomach the thought of. :barf: so for all of you veterans out there, what do you do when you are sick? i'm on day 5 of induction and even though i was sick yesterday i managed to hang in there and stick to the program. i want to do that today, but with only being on day 5 i am pretty limited. if i were further along in the program i would drink unsweetened almond milk with protein powder and lots of water. i am doing so well so far and i do not want to derail my efforts. any help and insight you can give me is much appreciated!
