  • What's best to eat after a stomach bug!

    title says it all really. was very ill all yesterday+last night, and now feel starving+dehydrated.
    im drinking water+very weak juice, and have managed to eat 3rounds of plain toast+keep it down, so i feel ready for something more substantial!
    thanx - im starving!
    ~Yes, she caught my eye as i walked on by, she could see from my face that i was fucking high!~

    Something light at first but eat normally as soon as you start to feel better.

    Fruit juices and soft drinks are probably better than plain water initially.

    If it was just a one day effort then you'll be back to normal soon enough.

            I tend not to eat anything until I feel ok again.

              Actually, I just want one. Nevemrind... Chicken Soup is always what ill folks have, so must be a reason for it!

              I don't care where I go, so long as it ain't here,
              If something gets in my way, you know I'm gonna ram her,
              Nobody fools around with this gear jammer.

                apparently scambled egg because the egg helps "bind" stuff together. sorry not very technical but it always seems to work for me
                Hope u feel better!

                  I always find bread products work. Like bagles, muffins, toast and that. Along with Gatoraide.
                  Of all the mistakes you've made, the best are yet to come.

                    Fish or chicken and rice, something light.
                    Doves, Playboys, Biscuits, Barrels, Callies, Clear Caps, China Whites, Rhubarbs, Loony Toons, New Yorkers... you know, bang on, larging it, the full monty, safe as houses, pair of trousers, what a laugh, let's do another half!

                      You can get rehydration sachets from boots - it's just powder you mix with water and is quite a good idea after a stomach bug.

                        Live or pro-biotic yoghurts or drinks (such as yackult). Helps to settle the bacteria in the stomach, and good if you cant keep much down.

                          They make my mum ill So, I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot barge pole if I had a dodgy tummy.

                          I recommend a plate of toast with a scraping of marge on.

                            drink lucozade or some other energy drink, eat stuff like bananas and fresh fish (not together obviously)
