Brief Answer:
No studies

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

As per my understanding you would be on green vegetables and fruits and smoothies. There seems no starvation involved while on this program and snack on while you are hungry. So there shouldn't be any problem with medication. I searched for any experience and studies on such diet program on HIV medication, I found no authentic information.

Take Care!
