I just threw up (sorry). Do my calories still count or do I need to eat again?

As subject says. I last ate an hour ago! Thank you.

    Hey, just get healthy again. That's the most important thing. If you feel like eating more then do it. If not then don't. :D

    Thank you so much. Much appreciated.

    At the end of the day only the calories you fully digest will go towards your energy needs. So your best reaction depends, heavily, on the root cause!

    If you have a short-term illness, recovering from it comes ahead of any diet considerations, and forcing yourself to eat when feeling unwell probably makes no sense.

    If there is an underlying longer-term cause, or if this happens more often than once in a blue moon, a resolution should be explored with the help of an appropriate medical practitioner!

    No you don’t need to eat but I would just worry about your immediate health first

    Drinking (to stay hydrated) is generally more important than eating after a bout of vomiting, assuming you haven't been running a huge deficit for a sustained period before getting sick.
