Should You Eat Sugar When You Are Sick?

Sugar When You Are Sick

The two types of infections that many of us fight every now and then: bacterial and viral.

Bacterial infections (ailments like bronchitis and pneumonia) are caused by single-celled organisms that can invade and thrive inside our bodies, reproducing on their own. Most bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics that stop the colonies from growing larger.

Fasting, giving the body a break from food or High Fat/no carb will help you go into ketosis.    Don’t eat sugar of any kind. (Sugar, complex carbs, fruits)

Viral infections( flu/influenza, common cold/rhinovirus) do not replicate on their own like bacteria does. Instead, viruses will take over our cells and hijack them to get them pumping out more copies of the virus, so it spreads through our bodies like a hostile takeover. No refined sugars (sodas, cookies, candies, etc) but complex carbs ok (vegetables, berries)
