Avoid Winter Colds All Together
There are several things that you can do regularly to help keep your body strong and healthy to avoid getting a winter cold. When avoiding colds it is common knowledge that washing hands regularly will help, but did you know that drinking plenty of water will also help you to avoid getting sick? Drinking water will keep you you hydrated which can flush out bacteria, keep your kidneys functioning and boost your immune system. It is recommended to drink at least 2 liters of water every day. In fact, the general rule of thumb is to drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day, whether or not you are dieting.
Staying Warm to Avoid Winter Colds
Another tip you can use to avoid getting a cold this season is to keep warm. It is not uncommon when dieting with HCG to feel cold even in the dead of summer so one way to keep from shivering is to wear a scarf or even a light piece of fabric around your throat. You’ll be surprised how well this works.
Advice to Avoid Winter Colds
Echinacea has long been used to help treat and shorten the length of colds but did you know that it works just as well as a prevention. Improving your immune system before you get a cold is much more practical than boosting your immune system after you are already sick in order to get over a cold. Vitamin C is also similarly used by those suffering from the common cold in order to help shorten their cold, however, it is much more affective when taken before the onset of illness to keep your body strong and healthy so you never develop a cold in the first place. Eating fresh fruit and vegetables instead of frozen or canned can also help keep your immune system in top shape and help prevent yourself from succumbing to a winter cold. Most of the fruits and vegetables allowed on the HCG diet are high in vitamins your body needs in order to stay healthy as you lose weight and reach your goals.
