What are the best low-carb home remedies for the cold or flu?

Have you caught an annoying cold or had the flu this season? There seems to be a degree of contagion in the Diet Doctor Facebook group, since many members report that they are bothered by sore throats, runny noses, or coughs.

But don’t fret – there are many home remedies that will get you back to business in no time. Fortunately, most are low-carb friendly too. Here are the top three things which were recommended:

  1. Bone broth
  2. Soup, like this delicious keto no-noodle chicken cabbage soup
  3. Tea (preferably “throat coat” or ginger tea)

If you’re sick, but not hungry, then we simply recommend that you listen to your body. Go ahead and fast until your body signals that it wants food again. Be sure to stay hydrated with water, tea, or bone broth, but your body will let you know when it’s once again ready for food.
