What To Eat The Day Or Two After Having The Stomach Flu
Simple = best: I find that simple, easy to digest material; noodles, macaroni & spaghetti without sauce, graham crackers, broths, steamed rice, apple sauce, some vegetables & boiled meats are all well tolerated by a recovering gut. Fried foods/acidic juices/milk or cheese & spicy foods will often lead to recurrent cramping or nausea if consumed too early. ...Read more
I have had the stomach flu for three. Its been two days since I've thrown up. I still have no appetite and am weak. How do I get more energy what eat?
Simple carbohydrates: If still nauseated, drinking fluid is more important than eating.

Even inflamed tissue can absorb simple sugars so you can get some calories. If you vomit, go back to clear liquids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had the stomach flu 3 times within 2 months. Why am I getting it so rapidly? What could I do? I feel nauseous when I eat.

If you have ongoing nausea when you eat, you may need to get checked for other problems. Makes sure you aren't pregnant (home pregnancy test). Then try liquid antacids to see if they help - they treat gastritis that can be caused by Advil/ibuprofen. ...Read more
