My last football game I'll ever play was rainy and cold as all hell. My stomach hurt when I came home, so I attributed it to hunger, but when I ate it didn't make anything better. I had a fever of 100 and went to sleep, stomach still hurting. I woke up about an hour later and threw up all over my bed, so I slept downstairs. I woke up again and threw up in the sink. Rinse and repeat 2 more times.
+ I still haven't eaten yet today. Was 185 last night, now down to 174.5.

Well, I ate some chicken noodle soup over the course of a few hours successfully. Now I mostly feel feverish, but who knows whether or not I'll throw up again. I'm definitely not going to risk downing ALCAR...eww.

It's definitely water for the most part, dude. I'm sure your lifts will be down a little, but they will bounce right back in a week or two. I've been through all different kinds of sicknesses. The only ones that are real detrimental are the flus that hang on for a while and keep you from eating. As long as you get in your fluids, BCAAs if you have them would be e****lent, and of course get in food as soon as you can stomache it you will be fine.
Don't worry about it, man! Just focus on getting better.

Thanks guys. I ate a little more today, but I definitely think it's killing my appetite. I guess we'll see tomorrow how it'll effect me. =/
On the plus side, I'm more cut than anytime in recent memory.

I think I've shaken it for the most part, but it's having some longer-term effects on my appetite. We'll see how it goes in the morning.

Wow,sorry to hear that man. You'll bounce right back. I hate it when things ruin the "rhythm" of my training but unfortunately that is life.

Well, for some reason my back weights remained the same but my EZ bicep curling was WAY down. I used to do the bar +25+5+2.5's on each side 10 times, and I could hardly do 5 today. And I noticed my chest looked smaller in the mirror today. Damniiiiit.
And no, I'm not currently on anything except for ALCAR. I figure might as well get a good cut out of this bull****. =/
Oh well, at least it's over. Thanks for the support.

If you were bulking, continue bulking. It's not like starting out a cut on the wrong foot is good anyways. Don't ever start out a cut just because you got sick. At least build back the muscle you think you lost.
My freshman year of college I went from 170 to 198lbs. I cought the flu at the end of the semester and was down to about 175 over the course of two weeks. Four weeks later, I had it ALL back.
Muscle memory is a beautiful thing.

It's almost all water with a tad of glycogen. You may be affected for a few days in the gym, but it is not irreparable damage.
