Hi Bhaskar, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Most people with hepatitis B don't need a special diet. What is more important is, try to eat healthy foods and do not gain weight. Since your Body needs energy to fight infection, you may want to eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Avoid junk and High calorie foods. Exercise regularly and Practice Yoga and Meditation. Know more about your Condition, this will help you stick to your Treatment Plan and will help you understand yourself better. Kindly have Patience and don't lose hope. Go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health and Do Take Care.
