View Full Version : Has anyone ever gotten hungrier while sick?

I've read a lot of posts on here about how the best thing to do when sick is either fast or eat as minimally as possible. But I've been sick with a fever for the past few days and I've been so much hungrier than usual. I've been pretty much devouring everything in sight. I'm guessing my body needs it since I'm hungry for it, but I'm kind of confused about why the opposite is happening of what usually happens when people are sick.

Agumble, I have always been that way. The sicker I get, the hungrier I get. I can remember when I was about 11, the last time I had the flu. I craved salami and cheese sandwiches with tomato and mustard. How weird is that? My mother was beginning to think I wasn't really sick. I usually crave very spicy food when I don't feel well. I tried the fasting or eating lightly, but it doesn't satisfy me, so I just eat what I am craving and be done with it. I think there is something in the herbs and spices that must help me or I wouldn't crave them. Even now on raw I still crave spicy when I don't feel well and I have an enormous appetite. I like to think of it as being outside the norm. :D
