Have you had COVID 19 and are having difficulty recovering? Indeed, coronavirus can cause prolonged fatigue, partly due to persistent respiratory discomfort, but also because of weight loss and muscle wasting.
Exercise and nutrition will play an essential role in people’s recovery time and ability to resume their activities. Explanatory notes!
A balanced and easily digestible diet
Nutrition is crucial to regaining strength. After having been put to the test, the digestive system must be treated with care. Taste and smell may also be affected, and it is not always easy to know what to eat.
Fill up on vegetables, either steamed, in a broth or in soup. Also fruit, which is rich in fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Opt for them cooked, rather than raw, as they will be more easily digested.
Getting enough protein is also essential. Effectively, it is needed for rebuilding muscle mass and regaining energy and vitality. Choose lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs and legumes.
Add some starch to each meal for energy. Opt for soft cereals for your digestion: rice, quinoa, buckwheat and oatmeal.
Also make sure you are well hydrated by drinking water throughout the day. For variety, also think of green tea, which is rich in antioxidants, or herbal teas (lemon, ginger, thyme, cinnamon, etc). A cure of Energy Detox, a draining drink with 7 plants and rich in vitamins can be a precious ally!
