Well im sick, might be a mild case of the flu or just a severe cold. I need some advice on nutrition while im sick. I don't want to lose any muscle that Ive gained but I also do not want to gain fat. Should I just stick to my high protein/controlled carb diet?

Depends, can you hold food down okay? If you can, I would stick to your diet with the exception of cutting back on the carbs (unless you are still working out). If not, sugar free jello rocks! and if you mix in a little bit of protein when you make the batch it goes down easily and won't hurt you either.

Also try to get in as many liquids as possible (dont overload on the sugar filled fruit drinks) but some are okay. Get in a lot of water.

try to stick to your current diet if u can. Even if u lose some muscle you have muscle memory and you will gain it back in about a week or two

If you can hold food down, just eat like normal. If you can't, eat lots of fatty food, that way you can get a lot of calories in a little food.
