Anyone vegan and HIV+? I was just diagnosed this month and was formally vegan for most of last year. The holidays came around and I totally blew it, and got off the vegan train. I really want to get back into it because I felt awesome.  Anyway, not only do I want to virtually high five any vegans here, but also would like to know if you had to make any dietary adjustments with an HIV diagnosis?

Kamara:
Hello, Lovely to meet you virtually.I was diagnosed over 20 years ago and have been vegan for about 15 years.i was lactovegetarian from birth so even on that diet, i felt well enough. I managed to stay off medication for 10 years post diagnosis.
I must admit,I didnít make specific changes but was trying to be more aware of including whole foods,raw foods,oil free  etc. I love my vegan unhealthy foods too but try to limit them.
I only take vit D and B12 supplements
I hope you are able to get back into it. Am happy to share other experiences if it helps.
✌🏽

Hi OP.

Not a vegan myself, but I think there are a good few members who follow a vegan diet and are doing well.
If you do a search on the topic I am sure you will also spot some previous threads from members and their experiences on the topic that might be useful. :)

Take it easy.
