    I have a weird observation from change in diet (sample size, one).. I went from high-carb to high-fat low-carb and I don’t seem to get colds any more – at all.. but I still seem to get a flu once every few years.

    Do you have any evidence that taking extra vitamins makes any difference? I understand that the need for supplementary vitamins (with a few rare exceptions for individual circumstances) in an already balanced diet has been largely debunked.

So now I’ve got a cold, the fever has at least faded already, and so far, I’m quite patient and not working out at all, of course.
