Having a cold or flu is a pain. Muscle soreness, headaches, tired & droopy eyes, scratchy throat and numbness are just some of the common symptoms of these infections. "You can't underestimate the importance of good nutrition when it comes to your immune system," says Karen Ansel, RD, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Fashioned after shows like Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance, the annual event brought together Atlanta's top celebrities and professional dancers for a night to remember.
