How To Avoid Overindulging During A Sick Day

In my experience, people find it hard to stick to their diet as an example of how to eat healthy. It’s more than “eat well, less fast food.” What people miss is that eating poorly on a day when you’re sick doesn’t hurt you. The illness doesn’t cause you to become hungrier… it just makes you feel worse. So don’t let yourself get hungrier by making decisions that feed your illness.

I have some advice for people in my situation: Don’t overeat on a daily basis. That doesn’t mean skip meals or stop working out; It means eating food that is filling, nutritious, and of high nutritional value. Don’t try to force yourself to be physically active, you won’t succeed. Instead just eat a well-balanced and nutritious lunch and the rest will happen on its own. Don’t overeat on a daily basis, don’t let yourself feel like it’s something to be ashamed of.

This may be hard. You’re getting a doctor’s note or an order to eat your favorite foods. However that’s not a doctor’s job to judge your preferences. If this is something you’re willing to do to live, it’s all your decision. Just keep in mind to keep in mind your sickness and your health. There should be a difference.

To me, this seems like a good idea: How do you think this advice applies to you: Eat poorly on a day when you’re tired and tired on a day that your body is sick or tired of eating so it decides to just throw up and not eat? Or: Eat well, don’t eat too much. Not that I’m advocating you do these things or anything; there are plenty of different and even better ways to eat well in the long run. However if you want to avoid these problems, I’m going to lay out a plan of attack for you in a way that will hopefully, as long as possible, work, I’m betting, for you.

This is a recipe for delicious nutritious healthy food. It contains a lot of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. It’s a meal that I often turn to when my body is feeling like it just wanted a nap and I can’t go on. It’s a meal that I make for my wife. One that she eats at least once a day and she is one of a few people who won’t let me bring in a single piece of it into the home.

I make this meal the same way I always make it… except I don’t use chicken and I don’t throw in anything else, so that it’s the real deal and not some cheap imitation chicken! One more time: This is a meal that you can make at the same time every day and enjoy every single day without losing the taste of what is so special to me… the taste of home.

If you are not looking forward to the extra effort involved and still want to put this on your dinner menu (or even on the side of your plate) the following tips should help:

Don’t use canned tomatoes. Instead use fresh tomatoes with a little sugar.

Don’t use sugar in a sauce. This is also true when preparing the vegetables. Just use lemon juice, salt, some pepper, and your favorite cooking spices.

Don’t use extra virgin olive oil in cooking. Instead get some extra virgin olive oil. It’s so great because it’s a natural fat that doesn’t just taste good, but has also been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels and help maintain the lipid profile of the body (1). Use it in the same way one would use regular olive oil: with a little garlic, the right amount of salt, a little pepper, and maybe olive oil.

Don’t fry the vegetables. Instead simply cook them in olive oil and drain and add them to the sauce later.

Use plenty of vegetables. A large quantity of greens like kale and spinach work great as well. However, using just a small quantity of greens won’t do it for you. The greens need to be very vibrant and flavorful in flavor but also the consistency needs to be like a creamy sauce.
