The UN-recommended way to lose weight: get a horrible stomach flu. I did on Sunday and lost 4 pounds. Am still not feeling totally well, but at least the extremely high fever is gone and I can sit up for more than a minute without either vomiting or feeling like I'll pass out.
Hot tip: a teaspoon of honey if you can't stop vomiting. It worked for me.
Hoping to hold on to at least a little of the loss, but some will surely come back when I can eat more than a few hundred calories a day and am more rehydrated.
P.S. Lying in bed for two days, I got to see The Biggest Loser for the first time (although I think it might have been a repeat of a previous season finale) and it was great. Also watched some of Celebrity Fit Club Boot Camp...ugh.
