Why does anyone have to tell you to starve a cold? Doesn't that come naturally when you are sick? It sure does for me. As a result of a terrible cold my weight is dropping. I'm tracking my calories and doing my best to keep them up to 1200. Some days I'm not successful, one day was only 700. I do think this allowed for now but I'm worried about when this cold is over. What then? Back to 1500 calories? I have to think this one through. Its always a juggle and reshuffling in this diet game it seems. I will get there though. Just see if I don't!!
