    Isn't it "Starve a fever, feed a cold"?

    [h=3]3. "Feed a cold, starve a fever."[/h]Scant research has been done on this familiar advice. A small study published in 2002 suggests that eating may influence short-term immune function, but whether this has any effect on the course of a cold is unknown.

    Hendley, for one, is unconvinced. "This is a faintly titillating study," he says. "But it provides no support for the 'feed a cold' idea. I grew up hearing this advice, but I just don't believe it's true."

    Schaffner recommends "listening to your body": If you feel hungry, he says eat something simple, like soup, applesauce, or toast.

    I'm going to be very serious. I have a cousin and a friend (in their early 50's) who are in the hospital because they didn't take their flu seriously. You need to keep yourself hydrated and make sure your electrolytes stay level. So drink Gatorade, or Pedialyte

    Go with the yogurt and some water.

    If your stomach is upset, the worst thing to do is pour booze and pills like Advil in it.

    yogurt might be bad. Causes mucus and you don't want your lungs congested
