What should be the proper diet for abdominal TB patient?

My fiancy is a TB patient. She is taking medicine for last 2 months. Doctor suggested not to take any spicy foods. She is taking only fried foods with rich in carbohydrates. But what I think is she is poor in protein and fat nutrients. When I am suggesting for Horlicks and fruit juices she is denying to take, she is afraid if something happens. Plz suggest me.
