There are many methods of fighting colds and the flu, but one approach is written in stone: Feed a cold and a fever. When fighting a virus, such as a cold or influenza (the flu), your body needs energy, and the best source is healthy food. In addition, a fever, a common symptom of the flu, burns additional calories. When the body temperature increases, so does the demand for more energy or calories. If you suspect you are coming down with a cold or the flu, start eating!
