I have just bought the Breast Cancer and Royal Marsden Cancer cookbooks. Part of a bundle on Amazon and there are some lovely healthy recipes in there for during and after treatment etc.
Not sure if this would help you but they are all counted in terms of fat, protein etc x
I have been shopping today and bought lots of fresh foods and veg, mainly fish and chicken. So will try to keep to a low carb diet. Thank you both
Cazzy, I've lost 3 stone since Christmas. I think some of it may be down to the stress of all this, but I researched diet and cancer. I don't eat anything the cancer may like, but everything I do eat feeds my body and supports the immune system to help it fight this thing. Losing the fat is important, because it produces estrogen which feeds estrogen positive breast cancers, but the most important thing is that we eat well (ie proper, good, nutritional food) to keep us well and strong to deal with all the ops and treatment and mental challenges we are facing. The weight loss wasn't the main aim of the change in my eating habits, it has literally happened as a side effect/benefit of eating really well! In addition, this has given me a sense of bit of control when everything else seems to be out of my control. Xxx
Hi All, Recently diagnosed with stage 3 BC. Just before I was referred to the breast clinic I started a VLCD having 600 cals per day via liquid and bars. I am aboiut 6 stone overweight and need to loose weight, especially as I am looking at an OP and Chemo. The diet gives me all the RDA's and I have extra fibre. I feel fit and healthy and have lost just over a stone so far.Has any body tried to lose weight whilst having Chemo? etc. Any advice? Thank you
