recovering from food poisoning - questions?
The past few days i've been really really sick. I think it might have been food poisoning but i'm not sure from what. Anyway I spent 4 1/2 days in bed and in the bathroom. It was hell. A mix of a high fever, headaches, stomach cramps and diarrhea. I've been drinking plenty of water and eating my share of chicken noodle soup.
Right now I feel much better but still a little light headed. I also thought I was looking a little on the skinny side so i jumped on the scale and I weighed in 14 pounds lighter than normal!!! I am usually between 148-152 depending on traveling and what phase I am in in my training. When i got on the scale it said I weighed 136 lbs. I just couldn't believe it. I actually went and used 2 other scales also just to make sure this one wasn't broken or something. And i'm not the kind of guy that can easily loose that kind of weight very easily either. At normal weight and eating healthy I had a body fat % of 7-8. I guess that's what being really sick will do to you.
Now to my actual question. Do you think the weight will come back naturally just returning to my normal routine. And, how long should I wait to go out riding?
