When we are sick, our bodies and our minds are stressed and most of us translates that stressful feeling into the desire of eating comfort food which are often junk foods. Unfortunately, most people specially those who are battling their weight doesn't have broccoli or salad as their comfort food. Whenever this happens, just don't restrict yourself to much as it can only add to stress. Focus more on adding in great nourishing foods rather than on restriction or deprivation. Even if you are choosing to have some of those other things, be gentle with yourself and at the same time add in The Big 3 (protein, live foods and omega 3s)
