    Flu/Pnumonia recovery. Need suggestions.

    I am recovering for 4 weeks of combination flu and pnumonia.

    Needless to say, I've lost weight and strength. Only now am I even getting my appetite back.

    Would you suggest any food stuff to help build my red blood cell and muscle back to normal?


    Being sick sucks.

    I had pneumonia just over a year ago. I still have pains in my chest.

    Seriously, if it was bacterial you really really need to take it slowly. Pneumonia attacks your lungs and your o2 absorption capacities are probably vastly reduced. My take is to focus less on aerobic workouts at the moment and more on anerobic to gain back some muscle, and give your body time to get the aerobic capacity back. It can take months
