When you’re sick, your immune system wants to work constantly to drive out the invaders. The most efficient way to do that is to make you sleep as much as possible so that all of your stored energy goes directly to fighting the invaders off as quickly as possible. Eating does give you some of that energy, but it also keeps you awake and moving around.

When you’re ill, eat and drink when you can, but rest is the most important factor in allowing your immune system to do its job.

Often when you’re sick, the culprit came in with your food. Best to discourage you from adding more fuel to the fire, in case what you’ve been eating/drinking is making things worse.

That’s why it’s really important to remember to stay hydrated!
