One ‘Flu’ Over the Cuckoos Nest

This past week hasn’t been a great one for me. Super emotional with some personal stuff, major sleep depravation and the on Wednesday night I some how decided I’d ‘earned’ a treat. So I took myself off to KFC.

Just some of they’re yummy chicken I decided. Next thing I know they’ve given me free chips, and some sweet and sour sauce. Don’t mind if I do I thought… I’ve been doing so well I’ve ‘earned it’.

Next morning instead of my usual bacon and scrambled eggs with butter I’ve gone to McDonalds and order a breaky wrap with BBQ sauce and a hash brown. Oh, and a raspberry macaroon for the road!

I know what your thinking… WHY???

At the time I honestly had convinced myself it was fine, just a treat. Problem is it’s a slippery slope.

After breakfast I decided that was absolutely ridiculous behaviour and I’ve solidly locked back in to LCHF.

I’ve been eating well since however between Friday morning and now (Sunday morning) I have been totally kicked in the head with a flu.

I haven’t been sick all year since starting LCHF however just those 2 ‘bad’ choices were enough to leave me bed ridden for 2 days and possibly 1 or 2 more to come.

Symptoms:
• Migraine Headache
• Swollen/Sore Throat
• Photo Sensitivity
• Mouth Ulcers
• Major Joint & Muscle Pain
• Fatigue
• Dehydration and Vomiting

So, I’ve learned my lesson and hopefully you can learn from my mistake too.

It’s not a treat to eat junk and get sick!

  1. You poor thing! It shows us how we get fat in the first place though! I wonder why some of us use food to comfort us? Kind of sad really? I’m the same as you, any pain (emotional or physical) and I reach for something to eat😥

  2. It’s more likely that you disarmed your own immune system by going off the wagon–a 6-pack of soda can disarm your system for 24 hours! It’s all the sugar (in whatever form) that does it.

    Here in America, (stupid) people line up at the fast food outlets, then they wonder why they’re fat and sick all the time, and screaming for Obamacare. Smart people have already figured out they can’t really afford “the dollar menu” in terms of health consequences.

    If it isn’t the fast-food places, then it’s all the sugar in packaged foods–wherever it comes form, it still disarms the immune system.
