|Dieting and HIV

I am HIV poz, 37 and will be starting meds soon. I am about 25lbs. overweight and I'd like to lose it. Are those contradictive plans?
Response from Dr. Henry
Patients starting HIV medication often will gain weight (mostly fat) in the first year. Efforts to effectively exercise/diet are compatable with starting HIV medication and are encouraged. KH
