2.  Avoid the Sugar

No one is saying that sugar does not taste great; everyone knows it does, but it’s also terribly bad for your body.

Sweet treats abound this year and it can be difficult to avoid it entirely, but if you are going to indulge, do so by enjoying one moderate sized piece of something you really, really love. Sugar suppresses your immune system so eating three big slices of grandma’s apple pie might mean you are setting yourself up to catch a nasty bout of the flu.
