Overview

Use the power of Positive Nutrition to improve health and feel better at any stage of HIV infection or AIDS Written by two Harvard Medical School doctors, this breakthrough book will show you how to maintain weight and enjoy the highest quality of life possible by radically changing the way you think about food--without radically changing your lifestyle. By following the three Principles of Positive Nutrition, you don't have to accept weight loss and nausea as inevitable side effects of the infection and medications. This positive, proactive approach will help you stay well-nourished, active, and resistant to further health problems. Positive Nutrition for HIV Infection and AIDS shows you how to take charge of your nutritional care at any stage of HIV infection or AIDS. It provides sensible, easy meal plans, advice on getting through days when you don't feel well, and tips on how to talk to your doctor about nutrition. This valuable guide also includes a comprehensive listing of the most effective vitamin and mineral supplements, delicious, culturally diverse recipes, and tips on avoiding bogus nutrition therapies. "A clear-thinking, scientific, and truly helpful contribution." --Jerome Groopman, MD, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Chief, Division of Hematology/Oncology "A highly informative text for . preparing a personal management plan.
