Hi all! I'm looking for ideas of things I can eat while confined to bed. I broke my foot last week and per doctor's orders, am now unable to get out of bed. I'm not a really big exerciser anyway, but normally am on the go all the time so at least it keeps me moving. Now though, I'm afraid of gaining weight because all I can do is sit.
Three years ago I did the same thing (although that injury wasn't nearly as bad as this current one) and gained 15-20 pounds over a few months due to sheer inactivity. I refuse to let that happen again.
Any suggestions? Right now I'm trying to stick with lean proteins, vegetables and fruit. I have a pair of hand weights that I can use as well as a resistance band to play with while lying here. What I want though is a big coke and a package of Fig Newtons.
