Some Anti-retroviral medication can cause you to put on a lot of weight. Having a good exercise regime is part of maintaining good health. Exercise 2-3 times a week, for about 20 minutes and should be at a level you can tolerate, enough to increase your heart rate and build a sweat.
Exercises can include walking, jogging, skipping rope, cycling, swimming or joining a gym for a program that suits your level of exercise.
