Well the key thing for me, training or not, is to realize my CNS might be off when I am sick. There are some times when I feel well enough to train. During these times it is crucial to pay attention to how heavy the weight feels during each warmup set. Don't push your body beyond what it wants to do that day.

With that said, I usually don't train with any major sickness. A minor sore throat or stomach flu and I might train. Rest never hurt any consistent lifter.

As far as food...when I am sick I eat everything that's near and the box it came in. They I eat more.
