Increasing his calories with good sources of protein, complex carbohydrates and good fats plus resistance exercise 3-4 times a week is the best way to increase lean body mass. Whey protein supplements are good if he can tolerate them. Try to get him to see a dietitian. His doctor should know a good one. Or call local HIV agencies.
