Living with HIV

Hi DOc
I have recently been diagnosed with HIV. I have done all the necessary tests and have a CD4 count of 850. I obviously realise the importance of having a holistic lifestyle change but am struggling to find a nutritional and well balanced diet that i can use to ensure that i am as healthy as can be.
Can you recommend any?
