Well I can undoubtedly say I am starting to feel better, last night I ate 5.... count em 5 slices of cheese pizza.  On a good day I'm a 2 slice person, max.
I followed that with Ice Cream and a bit later a bowl of rice.  I just put new meaning to "I can't believe she ate the WHOLE thing." 

I have found over the years, that many of us seem to crave tacos, pizza, and pasta after comming out of an episode.  This is the ultimate positive sign for me since I have been in this icky coalescence since Jan 30th.  Hubby even commented that yesterday and today I look alot better. 

I say during these periods, give ur body what it wants.  Different days will be different things, although through out this period, I was eating alot of rice... just plain rice.

That's awesome Pattie! Doesn't it feel great when you can actually enjoy food again? I have been eating better since on the nortriptyline. Trying not to gain too much weight with it b/c I can definately have nights where I put it way way more than I shoudl be fore bed. The cravings are weird but I agree with Pattie. Our body is totally craving that stuff for some reason, it is screaming for it, it must need it whether we know why or not, so eat whatever will go down and feel great!

I mostly stick to liquids (water, gatorade, watered down juice, broth) if I know I'm going to puke by putting anything in my mouth. If I know I can swallow something, like it will make me nauseous, but I can keep it down, I usually go for diet sprite (or carbonated lemon/lime water) and saltine crackers. Pop a cracker in my mouth, sip the drink, let the cracker dissolve, swallow.

On the rare days I actually crave food, it's always bad carby food. The only thing I can stomach lately, and it oddly tastes like heaven, is baked seasoned fries. Everything else is coming right back up right now. Other than that, like the others, i tend to crave pizza, pasta, bread, and other heavily carby things and just shovel it in while I can. Body gets what body wants while it can take it lol

Fries are a common food that it seems everyone craves.. I have heard some people just say bland potatoes.. My son eats the fries for the bland and for the salt. His diet is mainly salt and vinegar chips, fries, and powerade. He doesn't like carbonation because he feels that this makes the pain in his stomach worse. Other than that.. it is "what is easy to throw up?" Noodles, although easy to throw up.. can snake out your nose.. So that happened and was hence forth banned. We go for soft food that he doesn't want to eat again any way.. But usually.. I agree with Brittany.. Liquids.  Sometimes you're just really hungry.

There is actually an entire thread on what is easiest to throw up.   I think Kate Connor might have started the thread.  Or Pattie Mahler.  I will try to find it.  Very interesting suggestions.

That's where I'm at, too, and this time it's particularly bad. My only luck thus far when it comes to actual food is little mandarin orange slices.

Do you suck on the oranges? Or eat them? Either way I see that being hard.. The citric acid or stringy slices.. Granted they are small.. My son loves those we will have to try that.

I literally let my son's cravings dictate what he eats.. I agree with the re-post of the topic GInny bumped up.. Moratorium on Jell-o my son won't eat it or pudding any way.. 

Saltines and salt and vinegar chips.. but they are hard to throw up if there isn't liquid with them..

Yes, I throw up orange juice or any kind of fruit juice, but for some reason the mandarin slices stay down. They are miniscule, juicy, and not stringy. The tiny bit of extra fluids helps with the dehydration (in my mind at least [smile]). Granted this is during the "in between" stage where the nausea is a 7 or 8 (so perhaps "near-coalescence") versus the 10+ of a full-one episode.

I'll take a look at that jello post. I can't bring myself to eat or drink anything by mouth during a full-on episode (which were historically just 12 hours, but now have gone haywire).

I think for everyone its different but for me i stick to fluids while im still vomiting, or crushed ice. Then once my gut feels up to it i start with Italian ice, if that goes well i go on to watermelon. I find that my mouth is so raw/dry after an attack that its almost impossible to eat anything dry. Watermelon is also mostly water so it will help rehydrate you. Hope this helped.

I try to listen to my body and not eat or drink too soon after an episode. Salty things like tortilla chips seem to be tolerated. I have gone through extensive screenings for possible food triggers and avoid those items. Now, when I have an episode or successfully abort one, it is not as violent. It's not an exact thing and is certainly ongoing. I have had to have an IV with fluids, phenergan and an acid reducer after very severe episodes.
