when our mind will cooperate to get out from the illness we can do positively. sometimes it will make worse if we think that we are very sick and our taste will turn to bitterness, so we are not eating well.

Hello,Patze! Usually when I am ill I loss appetite to eat.So I never eat my normal food.Instead I drink fruit juice or vegetable soup as per taste at that time.Fasting does a lot to bring normalcy to health.So go without foods for a day or two and be perfect.thanx.

You are absolutely right ! You feel not to eat at allif you are sick or ill ! But this is the time when your body requires a lot of more energy to cope up with the stress caused by the illness.This you can supply in the form of food. I normally try to eat and fill my stomach forcibly even I am ill just to meet the energy requirements by the body. Only exception is that if I suffer from digestive problems then I would like to be on light food.This thing really works ! I ask my family members neither to skiptheir Lunch or Dinner if they are sicK or suffering from illness.Normally your normal meals suffices. If required some more nutritious food including fruits, milk etc can be taken along with normal food in small quantities. Thanks ! It was an interesting topic of discussion !

I don't think so. When I am sick, although I get hungry. But I won't really have the appetite to eat. And the only thing that I am allowed to eat maybe are rice porridge with no oil, no salt. TASTELESS porridge. And when we are sick, our system won't be able to work like normal too, so eating normal food might strain the digestive system and make our condition worse.
