Eating Healthy and HIV

Posted on May 07, 2018

Healthy eating can be difficult while living with HIV. While there is no specific diet for those with HIV, eating healthy and reducing your intake of processed foods may help with fatigue and improve vitality. Changing your diet can be challenging to undertake. Finding the motivation to eat right when you have HIV is best done alongside others who understand the obstacles and rewards.

On myHIVteam, the social network and online support group for those living with HIV, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Eating healthy is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about eating healthy:

I'm eating healthy egg white omelets, fresh fruit smoothies with silk protein milk, and a 100% vegetarian diet.

Between the medication, the supplements I take, and a healthy diet, I'm feeling pretty darn good!

Seems the family cooking for me constantly has increased my weight by 10+pounds, but of course, my cholesterol has shot through the roof.

Found out that I have high cholesterol its always something going on with my health... I've been eating healthy and exercising I don't get it!

Can you relate?
