Garlic, garlic and more garlic! Whenever someone in my family comes down with a cold, I start eating garlic. Chop it up raw into salsa, grate it into fried rice... whatever it takes. I have even gone so far as to just slice up a few cloves and swallow them like pills! I haven't gotten sick in over a year because of garlic, and if you're already sick, chowing down on it will help you recover a lot faster.
Other than that, get plenty of sleep, take a multivitamin and drink a TON of water. Don't push yourself exercising, maybe just go for a long walk if you feel up to it. Keep counting your calories though and stay, at least, within a range in which you will maintain your weight. Give your body a chance to heal, and you'll be feeling better in no time, then you can pick right back up with your weight loss program where you left off!
