In a workshop carried out last year for trainers of HIV/AIDS, it was concluded that
-people infected with HIV/AIDS need to eat more than normal people because they need enough energy to fight common symptoms such as fevers which cause increase temperature leading to exhaustion
-eat alot of protein foods so as to repairdamaged tissues especially after opportunistic infections
-take alot of vegetables and fruits which are very rich in vitamins
- they most eat the best they can at least 3-5 times a day to keep blood sugar lavel constant
