Hi Guys,

I don't log in often but thought you'd all know what to do. I've had an intestinal flu bug and anything I eat just goes through me. I just started to eat again, but what is the best way to plug me up. I just want to get back to normal and get back to work. I am feeling so much better now and just need to gain the lost weight back.

Glad to see you're doing a bit better :)

I got hit a month or so ago, and it was nasty.

Hi Susan:). Glad you're feeling better, stomach flu is awful. I'm sure you are eating bland, soothing things like bananas, baked potatoes, tea, etc.

If it were me (and everyone may not agree) I would try Immodium. Just to stop the diarrhea and let your system settle back down. A day or two should do it.

Take care:)

I'm of the personal opinion that stomach flu is why God created Imodium. ;)

Do what you gotta do, baby! Rice, potatoes, peanut butter, tea. Soft, soothing,
doesn't-hurt-on-the-way-out food. :P

Soups, crackers, baked potatoes.

I have a major craving for French fries when sick.
