well-balance diet tends to be Healthier with stronger immune system and lower risk of chronic illenesses and infectious disease
Due to virus and Heavy dose of medicine we loose energy..
Allow the body to recover first. At this time more calories will provide more energy to the body to counter off the infections and also help it recover faster and regain strength. Thus, eat nutritious foods.
Eating a high-protein diet is vital in recovery as protein can help repair the damaged body tissues, make up for the muscle loss that occurred during the infection.
Include lentils, legumes, nuts, dairy, eggs, white meat, soya, milk, and fish in your diet. Try to have at least 1 gram protein/kg of body weight every day.
For instance, if you weigh 50 kg, then ensure a minimum of 60 grams of protein every day. Make sure you have 1 to 2 portions of protein in each meal and have two protein-rich snacks each day too.
Human body loses lots of fluids during infection so the first priority must be to replace that loss. Drink a lot of water to speed up the recovery. Target drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water every day and also include other hydrating drinks such as nimbu paani, coconut water, soups, green teas, in your diet.
Fruits and veggies: Fresh fruits and vegetables are great sources of dietary fibre, folate, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Include everything from apples and bananas to gourds and green leafy vegetables in your diet.
