Eating difficulties after stomach bug

Published by Metabolism_Boss in the blog Metabolism_Boss's blog. Views: 753

I woke up in the early hours of Saturday morning, and realised that I was going to be very, very, very, very sick. After about 12 hours of everything leaving my body at the speed of light, I finally got over what I suspect was Norovirus. The trouble is, I'm having difficulty finding things I want to eat. Before diabetes I would have eaten light, starchy things until my gut lining got back into shape. I've eaten scrambled egg and had some baked white fish, but I just can't face the veggies, poultry, meat and fish that I would normally eat. I'm not worried, as I could do with losing a few pounds to get to my optimum weight (I had lost 7 lbs when I weighed myself, but of course this was water loss), but fasting raises my BG. Any suggestions gratefully received.
