Feeling crappy.

I've only been in college for about a few weeks and it seems to be going bad. The week before i entered college i got sick by food poisoning from a Hardees on the way back home. Because of that i missed about 2 days of school. Then just a few days ago i got sick because i ate a hamburger from burger king and started throwing up all day and ended up going to the hospital. Both times i ended up in the hospital. I had to miss some days again too. I can't miss anymore! I need to keep going. I was able to make up most of the stuff i missed so thats good, but i need to keep going. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to not get sick by throwing up alot(food wise i mean)? It sounds dumb but that's what ususally makes me end up not going to class.

Eat lots of fruit and veggies. Some of my favorites are hummus & pitas with cucumber, tomatoes and feta. I also love spinach & chick peas. Couscous and Quinoa are both easy to make and yummy. Hot cereal. Yogurt. Fruit smoothies. Drink lots of water and avoid greasy/spicy foods. Stop drinking soda. Try drinking green tea or white tea. Avoid anything with partially hydrogenated oil. Avoid fast food. Eat lots of little meals throughout the day. Snack on easy fruits and veggies like carrots, apples, bananas. Also exercise regularly....this will help your body function at higher levels and aid digestion.

Ginger tea is good for nausea relief, greasy foods often trigger vomiting. Eating at fast food places is a number one way to get food poisoning.

If you do have to eat out.....try some Indian or Thai restaurants as opposed to burger joints.

Oh ok. I like carrots and bananas, apples, and oranges so that's good. Would iced tea be ok too or not?

Iced tea is better if you make it yourself. Most of the premaid ones on the market are loaded with sugar. Though I must admit I loves me some snapple.

Just curious, do you have a meal plan through your college? It sounds like your having to "fend for yourself".... I hope you feel better!
