Keep in mind that most of your immune system is in your gut. Healthy gut equals healthy everything.

The foods that make you fat ALSO ruin your immune system. Obesity is a symptom NOT a cause.

The biggest culprits are the empty calories in grains and starches. Most people think that they only need to cut out sugar to improve their health, but it's almost impossible to cut JUST sugars. You'll be starving, crabby, and having constant cravings.

Starch is the enemy - it feeds all the wrong gut bacteria, makes your body store energy as fat instead of using it, and gives you almost no nutritional bang for your caloric buck!

I was hoping for something more. My son has struggled with a weak immune system most of his life, and none of this is going to help him.

I still recall that when I was a smoker I ALWAYS had to stop when I got a cold or the flu.

Pretty much things in moderation & not to abuse our bodies with smoking & alcohol - makes sense.
