The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    eat the rice stuff. glutinous grains will bind your stool.

    payasam will do it as well as oatmeal and banana does. just trust your mom, man, she knows what she's doing.

    Symptoms

    Nejar:

    Its tough to tell you what to go ahead and do. You have not told us anything about your symptoms: are you vomiting? having diarrhea? stomach cramps? nausea? gas? passing out? headache? etc...

    Without these things its tough to say - however, it is always a good idea to get plenty of fluids - not just water in this case - but fluids that have good amounts of minerals and ions (you need to keep your potassium, sodium, and calcium levels intact if you are losing through vomiting or diarrhea). Gatorade or similar things are a good bet. As for eating, forget about dieting during an illness - it will only prolong your agony. You should make sure to eat frequently in small portions. Avoiding spicy food will likely help you avoid nausea and vomiting (which are you enemy in this kind of thing) and thereby limit damage to your throat and stomach - as well as let you keep the foods in you long enough to absorb the nutrients your body requires to fight off whatever infection you have.

    Thanks for the help, i called the doc, i feel much better now. It turns out that my mom was wrong and that soda and solid foods is two things i should have avoided. I just drank plenty of gatorade and some ARTIFICIAL juice and feel a whole lot better. I don't think eating solid foods is a good idea while you have a tummy virus.

    what was wrong with ya?

    i was actually thinking about ya when i left the gym this evening.....itreminded me how my mom used to break out the gatorade and tapioca pudding as soon as someone got the runs.

    technically she wasn't far off, if you consider for diarrhea the home treatement is B.R.A.T.

    Bananas
    Rice
    Apples
    Toast.

    and of course gatorade to keep the electrolyte balance together.

    funny how your mom was wrong though...mom's are usually spot on when it comes to that stuff. especially indian mom's. lord knows diarrhea is common. break out the gripe water and taro root.

    I thought the BRAT diet was just for sick infants... o well, live and learn...

    Tryska we may not be the same kind of indian, my family comes for gujarati in the Asian nation india. Yea my mom, i love her and all, but sometimes......

    I had the typical stomach virus, diahrrea, barfing, fever, lack of appetite. lethargy, stomach pains, dehydration.
