Yipes!!!! With 5 kids in the house finding time for yourself (exercise) is very difficult. I would check to make sure you don't have a thyroid problem. Stress can make it hard to balance eating and exercise. You might discuss with your HIV doc whether you should get some counseling to help cope. You might consider something like the Atkins or South Beach diets after discussing with your doc and nutritionist. There is no herbal medicine that is consistently safe and effective in this situation. KH
