  • well, i'm home sick with a cold this week, and i've been feeding it (when i have an appetite). Without food, the cold medicine makes me sick.

  • You should feed a fever and feed a cold. Things should stay as normal as possible. And drink plenty of fluids.

  • I have never heard of either! Seems to me like you should eat either way.

  • The Doctors TV show said it's a myth and neither one is correct. I just do what I feel I need at the time.
