Without crossing the TMI line, I've had a nasty stomach bug for the last 48 hours, with no signs of stopping. Obviously my eating has been way off from the norm. Yesterday all I could stomach was a few pretzels and a couple spoonfuls of soup. Today all I had was Malt O Meal cereal. I'm trying to stay hydrated, but it's a big challenge. And now I am feeling a few twinges of pain that is usually the first indication that a kidney stone is coming on (due to the decreased fluids, no doubt).
So how do you adjust for illness. Do you try to maintain the good carb/good fat principles, or just feed your body whatever you think it can handle? Prior to this I was doing phase 1.5 with only a serving of fruit with breakfast being added back. But the simple carbs are all I can handle right now without my digestive system revolting more than it already has! I'm thinking as I get over this I might need to lean more heavily on carbs while I recover, then get back on track once the gut is settled down. Anyone else experience something like this while on the beach?
