Not in the mood to eat today

  • I don't feel nasuea, not really.... but I feel like if I eat anything it would really upset my stomach. I brought whole wheat pasta with chicken and can't bring myself to eat that... or the cottage cheese I brought for snack. Infact, it's nearly 1 pm and all I had was an orange and 3 strawberries. Any suggestions for those with stomach trouble?? My free day is tomorrow!! How do I hold tight until then??

  • Stacy Lynn,  I've had days like that where I was tempted to not eat because I wasn't hungry.  you describe "feelings" without any actual nausea.  Please eat the food that you have already planned for today.  If you don't you may go overboard with hunger and cravings tomorrow making for even more bad feelings during the days after free day.

    We have to feed our muscles so they can grow, if you don't get the food in your body it goes into starvation mode (this can happen pretty quickly) slowing down your metabolism and progress.

  • I'm really kind of confused...are you feeling sick or just not interested in clean eating?  Your comment about free day leads me to belief that you don't really feel sick.

  • I don't know how to explain it-  I'm not hungry, and I also feel like my stomach is upset- this morning I felt like I was going to be sick and almost called in- but giving that it's Friday, I decided to stick it out.

    James- Now I'm afraid I ruined my day!

    But- what if I were really sick- what would I do then??

  • I certainly wouldn't go overboard on free day.  It's not going to hurt you if you don't eat, just make sure you are hydrating really well.  It's not ideal but heaven help if you are sick you are sick.

    Two weeks ago I had a stomach bug and was on clear liquids Thursday evening through Saturday evening.

  • Could it be morning sickness?  You mentioned that you guys are trying to get pregnant.
