lower base weight
« on: August 23, 2010, 03:56:41 PM »
I've been poz for a little over a year now and I've noticed my weight drop ten pounds from 155 to 145 (I'm 5'8"). I haven't changed my diet or gym routine. I started Atripla about a  month ago, but the weight was on it's way off before I started it. I asked my doctor and she's not worried about the weight loss at this point.

I'm wondering, do any of the rest of you guys have a lower base weight now that your poz?

I personally liked being a little beefier and was thinking that maybe the weight would come back on again when I started the meds, but so far no weight gain. The good news is that my viral load dropped from 220,000 to 60 in a month on meds :-) I know I could bulk up on protein to gain more weight, but I don't personally believe eating a lot of protein is healthy.

Higher by 15 kilos!  Just for comparison purposes to complete the sample of possible effects.
