Nope. Opposite. I eat next to nothing when I am sick. Nothing sounds good to me. Luckily I only get sick like once a year. (Knock on wood)

Yes!! And I always thought I was alone on this. I always overeat when I’m sick!

Um, like a garbage disposal.  I throw back insane amounts of food when I’m sick.  Of course, this is compared to my daily intake of food which is way above normail to begin with. Ps–pizza stands no chance with me.  If I were sick right now I might try to eat the whole thing!

Yes yes yes! FH always forbids me from eating when I’m sick. I had swineflu and seriously all I wanted to do was eat. I had a massive food orgy when I got better.

I’m the total opposite.  Sometimes I’m like, “why the heck haven’t I gotten sick yet?  I need to lose weight!”.  Lol, kidding.  But I’m a person who loves to eat for the taste of the food, and if I’m sick, I can’t taste a thing.  Last time I was sick, I made one box of ‘rice a roni’ (so random) and it lasted me 2.5 days!

I clear out the fridge and pantry when I’m sick! My hunger is just never satisfied for some reason. Glad I’m not the only one :p

It depends on what I have. If I’m really congested, I usually have no appetite. However, right now I’m down for the count with tonsilitis, and I can’t stop eating even though it hurts to swallow. Weird!

I don’t eat much at all when I’m sick.

I do, however, eat like a complete HOG when it’s “that time of the month”. I can throw back some food like no one has ever seen.

Depends on what kind of “sick” i am. Sometimes i find myself eating MORE food b/c i can’t taste it. So I rely only on texture and “healthy food” texture isn’t as pleasant =.

depends on what kind of sick I am and how sick I am.

Sometimes I can’t get out of bed or stay upright long enough to get something to eat or actually sit up to eat. Sometimes I can graze all day and I still end up losing a pound or two.

Nope, when I’m sick I just plain can’t eat.  The last time I got the flu, I was sick for a week…. went to go pick up my wedding dress after I got better and the darn thing was enormous!

It’s varied in the past… I think it’s not that I eat a lot when I’m sick, it’s that I eat the wrong foods. I was raised with the “treat yourself when you’re sick” philosophy, so I equate a sore throat to ice cream or a frappucino. Bad me!
