"Diet"
 
   LAST EDITED ON Jun-10-12 AT 12:46 PM (CDST)
 
I was diagnosed with HSV2 6 days ago after being exposed 13 days ago.

After researching I am convinced that IF you don't have outbreaks often that you can make this a minor issue in your life. The key to this being a low occurrance of outbreaks.

I mean - I imagine its a lot easier to deal with and to discuss with a girl that I would be interested in if I can explain that while I do have this - its really not that big of a deal bc I hardly ever have an outbreak and I hardly ever have to deal with this much.

That would go over much better than having to say "yeah, I get an outbreak every other month" or something like that.

With that said my question is this: I am taking anti-virals currently and plan to take them for life as suppressive medication. I am EXTREMELY fit. Working out and lifting weights is something I love to do. This means I do a LOT of eating in order to both build muscle mass and keep muscle mass on me.

Is there any "type" of food that is known to cause more outbreaks in people that should be avoided? Anything I should know diet-wise in order to keep this in check as much as possible?

With that said...I eat typically nearly the same meals everyday:

Breakfast:
-Bacon & eggs
-Oatmeal
-Yogurt
-Milk/juice
-Fish Oil supplement

Mid-Morning:
-Yogurt

Lunch:
-Chicken
-White Rice

Afternoon:
-Turkey/Roast Beef/Ham/Pastrami
-Banana

Post Workout:
-Protein shake with water (sometimes w/ milk)

Dinner:
-Steak/Pork/Chicken
-Baked Beans or White Rice

Night time:
-White Rice
-Yogurt
-Protein Shake

Obviously I eat a lot of rice and drink a couple protein shakes but these are necessary in order to maintain the bulking phase of my workouts.

Any thoughts/advice on any of this?

I don't think there are any useful general rules. I certainly don't modify my diet around herpes, but then I rarely have outbreaks. If you find that you're having frequent outbreaks, I'd suggest going on suppressive antivirals.

The most useful lifestyle advice we can offer is to eat a generally healthy diet, get enough rest, actively de-stress (meditation, yoga, taichi, etc). Your body's ability to keep herpes under control is directly linked to the health of your immune system. Those are the basics of maintaining a healthy immune system.

Your research is good. Herpes is generally a very easy thing to live with if ... you don't make yourself crazy worrying about it.

   that diet is no good for herpes sorry
what you have to do is
go to a smoothie per day you only get 3% of the nutrients in cooked food so you have to liquify your diet min. once per day.
I understand the protein issue to bulk up but it messes with your immune system not having enough of healthy sugars.

I add a smoothie to my diet with a supplement for herpes

that does the trick watch a movie called dying to have known...it wakes you up to the power of nutrition. You could blend your ouatmeal and rice in a smoothie with fruits and veggies and beans and get better results the supplement is Immunistat for herpes. Google it its better to immunistat for herpes in the search see what you think

BUT that's too much beef the beef industry is sticking all the beef with antibiotics to bulk them up! you have a fake bulk to you like a puffiness I guarantee it.

You wanna get ripped.... smoothies REAL fuel and energy 97% absorption not 3% in a month you will loose that water salt fake fat trying hard to make it muscle......... you cant not with that diet
