Rise & Grind Wednesday: To Feed or To Starve?

Oh Me, Oh My! “IT” came out of NOWHERE … I was feeling absolutely fine one moment and the very next I was overcome with aches, pains, fever, stuffy nose, cough! And I couldn’t remember if I was supposed to feed ‘it’ or starve ‘it.’
So, I crawled into bed with my laptop and a cup of hot tea and asked Our Lady of Weight Loss to give me the strength to do a bit of Internet research. Never mind that I wasn’t hungry – never mind that I had a 101 fever … As any good foodie would do, I searched for permission to FEED this BABY!!! Here’s what I found out!!!
Our Lady of Weight Loss’s TIPS on How to KILL the COLD
1. GET PLENTY OF REST!!!
… Yahoo!!! Get out your flannel p.j.’s and ‘chill.’
2. DRINK PLENTY OF LIQUIDS …
… Primarily water. Your body cannot function properly without the right amount of water.
… Natural juices.
… Vegetable juices.
… Hot Grapefruit juice (haven’t tried it yet).
3. INCREASE VITAMIN C …
… ‘They’ say that a healthy person should ingest 3,000 to 5,000 mg’s of vitamin C. And there are Vitamin C powders and Vitamin C crystals that you can mix with water! (another way to get the water in). Try 5,000 mg’s or more!!! (Ask your doctor!)
4. KEEP WARM …
… Socks, hats, gloves; even if you’re in bed! It’s okay to look silly. You’ll get more sympathy.
5. ZINC LOZENGERS …
… Some swear by them and they say that zinc will kill the cold in its tracks.
6. FOOD!!!!!! (Drum roll … here comes the answer to the starve it/feed it question!)
… If you are hungry, eat; If you are NOT hungry, don’t! Soup is a good idea because it’s warm, has plenty of nourishment in it and it’s liquid.
SORRY! Our Lady of Weight Loss did not lead me to even one tiny little article that said that I should stuff myself; eat French fries dipped in Ketchup; order a pizza; eat ice cream or candy. Common sense, once again, prevails.
In the meantime, I have flushed the fever out of me!!!
What do you do when you have a rotten kick-tush cold? How do you stop ‘it’ in its tracks!?!!! Leave comment below.
Spread the word … NOT the icing!

    I am one who swears by the zinc lozenges. I’m a singing teacher and work part-time on the phone. IF I get started on the Cold EEZE (or generic version) as soon as I feel it coming on, I can, literallly, stop it in its tracks. Voila! No cold the next day! If I wait “to be sure”, it’ll take a bit longer.
