I was the same way when I had it. WEIRD! Never had a virus that made me hungrier than normal.

I've got it too. Just sticking with rice and quinoa soups and scrambled eggs because my throat hurts and is raw from coughing.

I wouldn't say I'm starving, but it's not affecting my appetite at all.

I am ALWAYS hungry when I'm sick! Doesn't matter if it's a cold/flu or allergy/sinus type illness... I'm always ravenous and eat anything in sight.

When is the last time you ate? Is it an unusual hunger, or has it just been a while since you ate something.

I know I never feel like making the effort to fix something to eat when I am sick - which usually explains why I am hungry.

When I was sick with it I just sort of grazed all day. Usually when I am sick I don't want to eat this last time I was hungry as well - I was so thankful that I didn't gain weight as I was just eating light things but it was weird. The flu this year is weird. We got it more than once and it seemed to mutate each day into a different illness it was weird and I am so hoping that we are done with it.

I hope you are feeling better soon.

It could be that I am not eating like usual and just am not noticing the passing of time.

But I feel like all I have been doing is eating or drinking warm drinks with honey and refilling my 32 oz water bottle and STILL the growling monster.

Our "flu" hasn't been so bad. I know that sounds crazy, but we all feel crabby but the worst part so far for all of us is the cough. Very strong cough and mostly at night.

Although my DH just took DS back to the Dr for knee issues which the Dr said on the phone might be caused by the flu or a reaction to some meds they gave him on Monday. So we are waiting for that news

Fellow Flu Peas I wish you fast healing and mild bouts with this flu.

Sorry you guys are feeling yucky. I wonder if it's because you're burning more calories fighting off the virus? I almost never lose my appetite when I get sick. Hope you all are on the mend soon!
