Everybody gets the flu regardless of their age but what should you do when you are on the HCG diet? Note that some flu medications are not permissible on the HCG diet as most of them interfere with the efficacy of the hormone.

Should You Continue Your HCG Diet When You Have Flu?

You can continue the HCG diet regardless of having the flu. However, if you are just too sick to manage both flu and diet, you can take a break but continue eating healthy food choices. Taking a break is permissible especially if you have just begun taking HCG  to focus on getting yourself better.

Flu Treatment when on HCG Diet: Things You Can Do

  1. Stay home and get plenty of rest. Let your body rest and drink plenty of water to keep your respiratory system hydrated. Hydration keeps your boy full and fights against the virus. It flushes the causes of headache and runny nose.
