I’m certain it is the flu as I have never had any of he symptoms I’m having (fever, sore throat, cough, major headache) in the past 2.5 months. Does anyone have any advice at all in order to fight the flu while still sticking to the diet and still function?
I don’t know why you couldn’t stick with the diet during the flu since it’s a healthy diet, unless you’re talking about adding more protein? If you think you need this, I would try to add mostly chicken or fish.
I’m also unsure as far as what you mean when you mentioned “function.” If you’re talking about work or school, you shouldn’t continue either if you actually have the flu.
