I hope you are all having a good Thursday. It is nearly Friday!
I was just wondering if anyone on here has drastically changed their diet since their diagnosis and whether it has helped them at all? My oncologist never even mentions diet, and nor do the oncology nurses. I am seeing a dietitian tomorrow to see what, if any, changes I can make to improve my health. I have been keeping a food diary for over a week now, so that should help with my consultation tomorrow.
Some of the things I have done include the following: I have not had any chocolate, cakes or sweets to eat in ages. I can't remember when my last sugar "fix" was. I am drinking less black tea and not eating as much bread, I haven't had a glass of wine in months (I have never really had much interest in alcohol anyway) and I am trying to eat fruit and other healthy snacks at mealtimes, rather than at random times throughout the day. I am also reading one of Kris Carr's books and in it she mentions that eating a more alkaline diet is better for us than an acidic diet. One of the things I want to achieve is to eliminate all inflammation, to feel healthier and to have more control over my disease so that I can move towards NED and stay stable.
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?
