Eating when ill

I was wondering why people say that when you are ill, you can eat some sh** food etc or have a few treats. At the moment ive currently got the runs, and i am hungry all the time, i have no idea why, but ive just eaten and im starving again, everytime i eat i end up going too the bog, lol strange question, just wondering if any nutritionists here have any idea too maybe why that is

    dunno why they say that?

    having said that, 1 prob with being ill is ppl often dont want to eat & train, so they go catabolic! eating pleanty of low GI heathy food should reduce the amount of time going catabolic, and therefore preserve muscle loss

    People say to eat some junk when you're sick because it is usually hard enough to get proper food.. so getting in something is usually better than nothing.. Your body needs energy to recover and so on.. Also it helps you from shrinking too much

    As for your specific case.. I'm not quite sure what your problem is.. someone like James may be able to help you better..

    What did you change in diet that could've suddenly given you the runs?

    My view is if you're unwell you are catgabolic - limit this by consuming whatever you fancy. Howveer if you have the trots do drink plenty too
