This groundbreaking, compassionate, and medically sound sourcebook is a food bible for the HIV community and their caregivers.

One single factor can have life-or-death importance for someone with HIV: food. The right diet and nutrition can boost the immune system, and most important, maintain lean body mass. Cooking for Life contains all the information you need about one of the safest, most effective, yet underutilized, weapons for staying well.

Find out why food poisoning, even a mild case, is highly dangerous . . . and what steps will protect you at home or while eating out. Discover what liquid nutritional supplements can do for the HIV-positive person . . . and how to make them taste better. Learn how to identify the fundamental components of a sound diet—including soluble and insoluble fiber, complementary and complete proteins, and much more.
