    Does IF still count if you spend most of it asleep?

    Primal Fuel
    I IFed for about 18 and a half hours, but I spent about 12 of those hours sleeping (I'm sick and haven't gotten a good nights sleep in a few days, so I needed it). So does my IF still count?

    I did hear that if you don't eat much when your sick, you body heals faster or something like that.

    I'm not too sick, just achey and feverish and low energy. Also, there was only like 5ish hours between dinner and bed, and i had a fish file for dinner and some almond butter for dessert, so i didn't go to bed hungry or anything.

    I'm of the camp that thinks you should do what you feel when you're sick - to a point. If you're delirious, maybe you're getting the wrong signals, but if you're just achey/feverish and you don't feel like eating, seems like you oughta listen to the signals.

    you need to eat if you have a fever. IF does have healing properties on a cellular level, but it only works if you are healthy in the first place. Getting over a fever is a different thing entirely. Having a fever, then denying your body nutrients for 18 hours because you think it will 'heal' you faster is not a good decision. If you want to get over your sickness ASAP just eat please.

    I haven't seen a list of primal sick foods, and I haven't been sick since being primal. The things that I used to eat when I was sick were different from my standard fare. Campbell's chicken noodle soup and toast with PB are what I would turn to. Come to think of it I should probably make some primal soup and freeze it for when I'm sick. I agree with Lindsey too, I would suspend IF if I were feverish.
