Battling any kind of illness can sap your strength. If you or a loved one had COVID-19, you may not have been as active or eating as much as usual, which means your muscular strength may have declined. After you have fully recovered, it’s important to work to rebuild it.
Don’t be concerned if you’re not back to your old self overnight. Regaining any strength you may have lost takes time and effort. One simple but crucial way to start is by focusing on your diet.
Below is a summary of nutrition steps you can take to rebuild your strength and return to activities of daily living. For more detail, see the complete version of Your Guide to COVID-19 Nutritional Rehabilitation: Restore and Replenish from the rehabilitation experts at HSS.
