Silvergirl, if Lipton chicken soup is the only thing you can tolerate when sick-by all means, forget the dos and don'ts of SBD and get strong and healthy first! :hug: In the purest sense, it would not be SBD friendly for phase 1 ... In phase 2 where ww pasta is allowed, we need to be sure that its not "enriched" wheat flours. In addition, there is no carb counting on SBD.. rather the focus is on eating Good SLOW carbs..Feel Better Soon!

The idea of sbd is having food that your stomach has to work harder to digest. But if your stomach isn't feeling well, you can't just starve. Spare your stomach the workout and have top raman, clear soda, herbal tea, and white toast with jelly. Its better than nothing.

Yes, feeling better is the main thing when you are ill. Try to eat good things though, like whole wheat toast. Ramen noodles are not a good choice so I'd stick with the Lipton soup mix. You'll need lots of water too to flush out the salt and the sickies.

If it's absolutely ALL you can eat the do what you have to to get better. I'm sure you don't feel like cooking now but you could make some chicken soup and freeze it for times like this. I make a chicken soup with chicken, celery, carrots, spinach, and onions that's really good and I don't miss the noodles at all. Hope you feel better soon.
