"Nutrition and HIV addresses the issues of nutrition and HIV fromthe perspective of the patient as well as the physician. Everyonewho is interested in the problems of--and solutions to--nutritionaltherapy in HIV owes it to themselves to read this book."

"Thoroughly researched, readable, and compelling. An important newresource for people with HIV and for those who care for them."(Ronald Baker, Ph.D., editor, BETA (Bulletin of ExperimentalTreatments for AIDS), San Francisco AIDS Foundation)

"So the bottom line is this: HIV is a disease of decreasingnutritional status; people die of wasting when their nutritionalstatus can no longer support life; we already have ways which candelay or limit that decline, and more are on the way. In the raceagainst HIV, there are new ways we can buy more time. And for someof us, the goal to 'Be Here for the Cure' may actually be withinour grasp.'' (Mary Romeyn, M.D.)

``As a nutritional consultant for our feeding programs, and nowwith this book, Mary Romeyn has taught us that our `Meals with Lovefor People with AIDS' constitutes important treatment for thisdisease.'' (Tom Nolan, executive director, Project Open Hand)

Nutritionand HIV: A New Model for Treatment is a comprehensive guide to AIDSmanagement through nutrition.'' (Easter M. Armas-Mikulik, founderand executive director of A Loving Spoonful)
