What are some good tricks for eating right?

A few simple steps can help you make sure your meal is healthy and safe when handling HIV.

  • Wash fruits and vegetables before you eat them or make them.
  • Wash the hands with cleaning soap and water once you touch raw fish, chicken or meats to assist in preventing infection.

What may I do if I’m having difficulty eating due to HIV Symptoms?

If you do not have a desire for food — Make an effort to eat your preferred foods. Rather than eating 3 big dishes every day, eat 6 to 8 8 smaller meals. Drink high-calorie basic protein shakes with your meals or between foods.

If you have diarrhoea–Don’t eat fried foods and other high-fat foods like poker chips. Also, avoid high fibre foodstuffs. Instead, eat bland foods such as bread, grain and applesauce. Ask your physician about taking natural supplements, such as Ensure.

If you have mouth sores — Avoid citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruit. Avoid hot or frigid foods. Don’t eat spicy foods. Try not to eat hard foods like chips and pretzels. Use a straw to drink liquids.

If you have nausea and vomiting — Avoid taking in any water with your meals. Eat 6 to 8 8 small meals each day rather than three large dishes. Eat foods with a mild flavour. Eat foods with a medium heat range, not too hot or frigid. Drink nutritional supplements and sports refreshments. Be seated and relax for 30 minutes once you eat.

How do I increase my strength?

Aerobic exercise such as walking will help make you more robust when managing HIV Symptoms. It is good to start exercising slowly. Over time, increase the amount of time that you walk. For example, you might begin walking for 20 minutes three times a week. Then, once you get a little stronger, you can raise the passing time and energy to thirty minutes 4 times weekly. Talk with your physician before you start, he will manage your HIV tests.

Weight lifting is also a good way to increase your durability. Start by looking to do lifting weights exercise with a weight light enough that you can lift up it 10 times. Lifting it once is named a “repetition.” Several repetitionsiscalled a “set.” Make an effort to do 2 sets of 10 repetitions. Leftovers for 90 a few moments between each collection.

You do not need to have nice exercise equipment to do lifting weights when handling HIV Symptoms. You should use soup or drink cans, catalogues and other objects you have inside your home. Start by lifting a weight that’s comfortable for you and doesn’t cause too much stress.

In the first week, do one or two two different weight lifting exercises for each body part once or twice in the week. Start with a little weight in each hand, like 10 to 15 oz . (A can of soup or a can of beans), with regards to the exercise. Each week increase the variety of exercises you choose to do and the number of times you exercise. Recovery for one to two 2 days between exercise periods. When you’re queasy, either exercise less or stop for a while.

Lastly, dumbbell bench press (for your breasts, shoulders and the back of your biceps and triceps). You should use cans of soup instead of dumbbells in these exercises. Crunches (for your belly). Upright row (for your shoulder blades, upper back and the front of your arms). Lunge (for the front and back again of your hip and legs and your buttocks). Those will be the best exercises when managing HIV.
