Found an article about energy boosting foods

https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/energy-boosting-foods

In general there should be no need to modify your diet.  Most do suggest trying to make sure you are properly hydrated throughout the day drinking the old recommended 8 each, 8 ounce glasses of fluids daily we all should be drinking anyway.

Many found they had an increase in energy on treatment possibly as a side effect of the meds or possibly from the eradication of the hep c virus as the most common symptom of chronic hep c infection is feeling excessively tired most of the time.

Best of luck on treatment

When taking mavyret. Can you have one cup of coffee in the morning?
Yes - coffee is good for the liver. Have all you want.
When taking mavyret. Can you drink Gatorade?
Yes, but not a good idea on or off Mavyret because of the sugar.
When taking mavyret. Anyone combat tiredness?
Staying active - walk or do things that keep you moving. Don't sit a lot.
What are some energy lifting foods?
Coffee. Avoid sugar and refined carbs. When eating carbs, protein may help
