Really sorry as I am sure this has been covered but quick question: today is my second fast day of the week and I have swollen glands and feel really cold-y. Would you fast ill? Not very ill, but a bit low? Or just cut my losses?

Thank You!

I fasted when I had a very heavy head cold. In some ways just drinking hot drinks and water made me feel a bit better, as when I eat when I have cold it seems to make me more snotty.

Do NOT fast when ill , because your body needs extra nutrients to recover.

While ill:
- drink lots of water
- cut out junk, alcohol, and if possible fizzy drinks
- try to eat to TDEE for sedentary

Make sure you are 100% again before you try an FD.
If you feel unwell when you resume your 1st FD, then wait a week before trying again.

Hope you feel better very soon
