How to eat healthy to recover from coronavirus
Those who have been ill with covid often take several weeks or even months to recover. People complain that they have no strength to perform ordinary activities, experience difficulty breathing and eating habitual food, lack of appetite, and many other symptoms. Doctors are already confidently talking about post-COVID syndrome — a whole range of symptoms that remain for a long time even after actual recovery.
You can get in shape faster if you continue to closely monitor your health: special rehabilitation, testing, and a review of your diet may be required. We found out what to eat after covid, and what is better to refuse. Here are some tips to follow.
Stock up on energy
After a coronavirus, the body can be weakened, especially when it comes to a severe form of the disease. Reduced body temperature after covid is a common thing, like other asthenic signs — a common complaint of patients after coronavirus is a complete lack of strength.
This means that energy reserves need to be replenished. Include carbohydrates in your diet: eat porridge for tomorrow, bread (preferably whole grain) for lunch, and rice or a bowl of pasta in the evening. Pay attention to vegetables rich in carbohydrates, such as potatoes. You need slow carbohydrates, which will be digested for a long time, providing the body with energy, and therefore cakes and chocolates will not work in this case. However, a small portion of dessert to cheer up is still acceptable.
