How many calories to eat
Aug 31, 1999

I have started a cycle of deca along with my usual depo-cypianate that I inject (200/ml every two weeks) I am eating everything in sight to try and put on weight as well as working with weights 4 days per week. I am 6 foot 185 and 35 years old, i have had Hiv for 8 years. Do I need to force feed and always feel full, or is 3,500 cals enough.

Response from Dr. Fisher

I think that is enough. You should have a consultation with a dietician to assess your caloric needs. Alvan Fisher, M.D.
