How much size will I lose from the flu

  1. How much size will I lose from the flu


    Caught the flu on Friday, had a headache Friday evening and woke up saturday with a high fever and full body aches. I've been running squats 7 days (probably should have skipped Friday session) and my caloric intake has been high. It's Monday and I still have zero appetite because food (even water) tastes like ****. Should I go with the flow til I'm better or try force in some calories to minimize muscle wastage?


  2. Keep eating and take more care of filling up on fluids

  3. Yeah definitely keep packing in the calories man I had pneumonia after my last cycle and I totally lost a good amount of size from that. Was literally just being in bed for too much time I was still eating you sound like you're having trouble eating.

    Go for a lot of soup. If you take down soup okay at bread with butter. If all that does good maybe some whole milk in the morning if you can hold it down and some yogurt?

  4. Muscle dosent magically disappear in a week or 2, maybe you'll loose a pound or so of muscle but the rest will fluid and a empty stomach. After A week or so of eating normal again and rehydrated you will be the same.

  5. You're gonna shrivel up now. RIP to GAINZZZZZZZZZZ

    You will be FINE man. Take in your fluids, eat and rest.

  6. Thanks all, working on the eating part. Soup works. Dairy ends up on the ceiling.

  7. You really don't need to worry, if u can't eat much for a week or 2 it's fine. It will come back after it's over

  10. Depends on you. If you can stay hydrated you shouldn't lose much. What You will lose is water weight. Each person on a normal day holds about 12lbs of water.

  11. Let your body rest. This includes the chore of digestion. I would focus on micronutrients more than macronutrients if you are eating. Fasting helps reset your immune system and it takes days for catabolism to happen at a large amounts that would prove noticeable. The stress of the thought of losing muscle is probably causing you more muscle loss than not eating lol

  12. My rule is that if I have more than a head cold I rest. Any type of body ache or flu symptoms will have me out of the gym for a few days - it's better to rest and allow your body to recover than to push yourself and make it worse.

    As far as calories, soup and shakes are the go-to. It's very easy to make high calorie shakes that you can get down while you're sick. I would eat at maintenance calories (if possible), and be sure you're drinking a ton of water and electrolytes. Sleep as much as possible and you should be back in the gym in no time. I wouldn't stress losing muscle at all - if anything a 1-2 week break will be beneficial if you've been squatting that much.
