I've had the flu since Monday night....stayed home all day Tuesday, felt better Wednesday and went to work....felt worse Thursday and stayed home....I feel better today, but I'm scared to eat anything "real" I've been living off of orange juice and toast for the past 4 days lol I need to eat real food at some point, but I'm scared...

IDK about you but after I've been sick, I eat the first thing that sounds good and almost always keep it down.  Usually when you feel hungry and food starts sounding good you are relatively safe.  Hope you're back 100% before long.

Try eatin the BRAT diet. Bananas Rice Applesauce and Toast. I think thats what the A stands for. LOL. Just take it easy for a few days. No milk products. Lots of fluids like water and gatorade. Gatorade will replace the electrolyetes u lose with vomiting. Plenty of rest. Hope u feel better soon.

Agree with this one. BRAT really is effective.

 BLAND bland bland bland diet. yes as pp says BRAT but saltines, toast with no butter, boiled skinless chicken and rice. NO spices or any salt ect. if your tummy can handle orange juice which is really acidic then Brat and bland will be just fine, just start slow and small. if you can keep the small amounts down then you can up it at the next meal. hope you feel better soon!

Brat diet like they said. And I don't think you should be drinking OJ with the flu unless you are tolerating it well. I like those gerber banana cookies even though they are for toddlers!
