Are vegan diets okay for HIV?
« on: January 31, 2015, 04:20:49 PM »
I'm undetectable.

I've read mixed things on the internet. Some sources say it's okay, while others say it can be harder while HIV and to incorporate eggs/ fish.

I personally like the lack of meats and dairy because I feel my skin looks healthier. Also, I feel better.

Its OK if you are eating the right food groups . I personally feel like its important for HIV positive people to have a diet that includes lean cuts of meat for protein .

First, I didn't realize there was a thread similar to this...so mods can delete this if they want.

Anyway, thanks for replying Jeff G. I find meat to be expensive for me and it makes me break out. Im tired of trying to gain weight (been trying my whole life) lets face it im never going to be a muscle man. I just want a diet that is healthy for HIV and makes me feel good. I like the vegan stuff... so simple and yummy yet fun to prepare and make.

Sure why not.  I don't think I've ever read that there are special nutritional requirements or limitations for someone with hiv who is otherwise health and undetectable.   At least not outside what is generally considered good eating habits like everyone else...eat right and exercise etc etc. 

May want to make sure your doctors aware do they can monitor, check your vitamin d levels and what not.

I say knock yourself out and spare the chickens life.  That's just my opinion and I'm a dumbass.  So. 
Don't be fancy, just get dancey
