TOday is usually a fast day. I'm not a death's door but I don't feel great at all. Going to see how it goes re fasting.
Any suggestions?

I'd eat while you can. I've got tonsilitis and it hurts so much to swallow I'm hardly eating anything!

I wouldn't fast at all if I'm either feeling unwell or on my period. You want your health to improve not feel worse.

Have you got meds for tonsillitis?

No Meds yet. I'm going to have some soup. Feel really ropey.

Don't fast when you're ill; your body needs extra nourishment. Just eat within TDEE and no junk.
Resume when you are well again. I hope that is soon
