I'm not sure how your title relates to your question, maybe I'm the dumb one- I'm not sure I understand your question.
Yes, it's entirely possible for one to gain weight without meds, particularly for one who is asymptomatic (that is to say, without significant AIDS-related issues). Just like the general population in the US that stuggles with increasing rates of obesity, we are seeing similar trends among people living well with HIV.
