My opinion is that it's silly to exercise when your body is fighting an infection, and that's what a cold is. You need those calories to repair the damage and keep your immune system going. Why add more stress by exercising while sick?

There's a reason why chicken soup is a "universal cure"--it's healthy and supplies needed nutrients. It is also not particularly fattening!

Take care of yourself.
