  • Starve a cold, feed a fever - it means don't worry about eating like normal, just stay hydrated.

  • Always feed and hydrate. . . most doctors don't even recommend witholding for stomach flu, anymore, either.

  • Wait 10 days and see if it goes away. Average virus takes 7-10 days to leave the body. Hydrate! Eat unless it makes you sick.
