    Diet Plan for those Recovering from COVID-19 - Fast&Up 

    Whenever we are infected or combating any infection, the body utilizes energy and fluids, hence it becomes essential to replenish lost energy and fluids required for recovery and complete health. Even if you are recovering from COVID -19, it is essential to follow good eating habits and a healthy lifestyle. There are certain nutrients and foods that help to amp up your immune system and provide faster recovery. Coronavirus impacts immunity, so it's paramount to get fuel to trigger immune response back to top in order to fight other infections by having healthy food.

    The aftermath of infection makes you exhausted, tired and drains all out of you both physically and mentally. The National Health Service (NHS) recommends people who recently recovered from coronavirus need more energy, proteins, vitamins and minerals to speed up the recovery process and that would ultimately help strengthen the weakened immune system and amp up stamina and energy.

    Diet Plan for COVID -19

    Calories: Since the body has been through a lot, it must add a calorie-dense diet in order to get energy levels back to where it was before. One must include whole grain cereals, this will help to boost your immune system and boost energy levels.

    Proteins: Proteins are made up of amino acids, which are building blocks of life. As per ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research), daily RDA (Required Daily Allowance) for protein is 0.8g/kf/bd- weight, but in the recovery process, protein recovery increases to around 2.0g/kg/bd-weight.

    Fast&Up Plant Protein Isolate formulated with high quality and clean Pea + Brown Rice Protein Isolate helps to fulfil protein requirements.

    Fruits and Vegetables: Natural fruits and vegetables provide nutrient dense punch such as natural antioxidants, essential vitamins and minerals. Fruits and vegetables helps to trigger immune response and help in recovery.

    Including fruits and vegetables in diet plan for COVID-19 helps to ensure proper recovery and not falling sick with other harmful pathogens.

    Fluids: Water is the most important aspect for life, it carries nutrients in blood, helps regulate body temperature and eliminates waste. Dehydration results in severe negative consequences such as lethargy, fatigue, irregular heartbeats, weak immune system and other issues. Restrict intake of carbonated drink and juices loaded with artificial flavors.

    Fats and Oils: One should avoid trans-fat found in processed food, fast foods and other unhealthy snacks. Consuming unsaturated fatty acids such as nuts, olive oils, sunflower and corn oils helps.
