Do you eat a lot when you're sick?

I woke up with a cold today and I seriously cannot stop eating, lol. I had Olive Garden for lunch, and for dinner I had two bowls of stew, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich...and I'm STILL hungry, lol! I don't know what's going on. :)

  • I always eat like crazy when I'm sick. I was told it's because my body is trying to fight off whatever has me sick, and it needs extra fuel to do so.

  • When I am feeling bad I cannot eat. Even if it is just the sniffles...I totally lose my appetite.
