Well I have a virus in my digestive system! Right now I’m about the 2nd most sick that I have ever been in my life. After 8 hours of vomiting I went to the emergency room. Dr. says no solid food until after Sunday.
After that I will be on a Brat diet (applesauce, soda crackers, etc.) Needless to say this isn’t going to fit well into my current lifting/diet plan. So far I’m down about 5lbs. since Thursday night. While I realize that this is a large amount to lose in 36hours I also know that it is not healthy at all. My questions are:
Where is this weight loss coming from? While I would be glad if it was all fat I sincerely doubt it. It is not water because that is now a diet stable for me while ill. I really hope that I didn’t lose 5 lbs of muscle…
How can I minimize muscle loss considering there are not a lot of non-dairy based, protein rich drinks that I can actually have without becoming violently ill again.
Should I maybe use this as a jumpstart to a cutting program?
I am open to suggestions
