    How strict would you be when you are under the weather? It hurts to swallow, my eyes are glazed, body aches. Might have a slight fever, not sure.

    I'm cutting

    It's hard to keep up the diet when sick.

    I find the old saying "feed a cold starve a fever" works though.

    Just eat whatever you want. Depriving your body of nutrients when you are ill is the last thing you want to do.

    When your sick (especially with a cold) is not a good time to deprive your body of nutrients and calories. Eat a decent amount of food because the sooner you get better the sooner you can start your diet again.

    well, seem to be almost better..throat doesn't hurt nearly as much, no longer feeling tired/sore all over. put on 3.5lbs (water weight?)

    time to get back on track!

    I got real sick when I was on low carb and it wouldn't get better. when I introduced carbs back I instantly got better. eat whatever you want and start your diet back when you are better.
