Russian nutritionist Marina Apletayeva said that bed rest and proper nutrition are important for colds.
In this regard, he listed the foods that should be excluded from the diet during illness.
According to the expert, it is better not to eat spicy, too salty and fatty foods during a cold. You should also avoid some marinated foods. For example, pickled tomatoes and cucumbers. These foods can exacerbate inflammation in the body and cause thirst.
It is also better to temporarily give up spicy foods. The same goes for red meat - pork, veal or lamb. The body uses a lot of energy to digest excess fatty foods. During a cold, the body needs energy to fight the virus.
In acute respiratory viral diseases it is necessary not to drink alcohol and it is better to reduce coffee. You can drink only one or two cups of coffee when there is no strong temperature and weakness. Alcohol dehydrates the body. It can also help blood clots form.
