Do I have to count calories from Lemsip and/or Day Nurse and Night Nurse?
On the plus side I'm not feeling hugely ravenous but it feels a bit unfair if I have to factor calories in from medicine (I probably do though right?)

Well, why would you not? Your body isn't going to know the difference.

If you dont feel like eating, then go ahead and have a fast day. But feel free to reschedule it and concentrate on feeling better if that makes more sense to you.

Your body needs more nutrients when ill and you should avoid additional stress on it, so:

- If you have a fever definitely do NOT fast
- RECOMMENDED even if just minor illness without fever: postpone your FD to when you are recovered
- If you insist on an FD during the sniffles, you may feel absolutely rotten. At least, allow yourself the full 500 FD cals of food. Log the calories of any medicines as extra, just so you can track what happened in the week.

Hope you feel better soon
