How to boost my immunity whilst working full time nightshift?
But these last 3 weeks I've had a recurrent flu/cold that affects my throat and leaves my body with a nasty fever. This time my throat is really bad. Tomorrow I'm going to ask for a strep throat test to determine if it is bacterial or viral. I have a blood test on Monday morning.
I have put on a ridiculous amount of weight. I'm 186cm tall and now weigh 109kg. That scared me. I looked at my stomach tonight and I'm very worried. I restrict my meals to 2 times per day. Dinner about midnight at work and breakfast about 5am.
Dinner consists of meat and vegetable dishes. No take away.
I don't incorporate exercise. The doctor seems convinced that my immune system will greatly improve with weight loss and consistent exercise. I'm motivated to get my weight down but will it help prevent recurrent infections?
Also, I'm studying to be a nurse but having second thoughts if I'm going to be picking up all the viruses!
