Is the cambridge diet safe when you are ill with flu and laryngitis and have very weak immune system? Is it ok to not eat proper food?

Is the cambridge diet safe when you are ill with flu and laryngitis and have very weak immune system? Is it ok to not eat proper food?

No: Ask your own doctor first. But i'd recommend caution with any diet plan that relies on "replacement" food from one company. It's never "ok to not eat proper food, " as it isn't sustainable without continuing to buy company food. The foods may have various nutrients, but with the flu you may not be able to stomach such processed products. Why not learn how to cook & eat healthily instead? ...Read more

I've eaten too much. Whats the best way to get over a "food coma"?

I've eaten too much. Whats the best way to get over a "food coma"?

Mild Exercise: The "food coma" is a result of blood moving from your arms, legs and brain to your gut to digest the food which also requires energy. After consuming large meals your body may feel lethargic. Try walking or doing mild non-stressful activities during this time to keep blood flowing to other parts of your body. Eating smaller meals more frequently will also reduce the effects of said "coma". ...Read more
