I am sometimes asked for nutrition advice. I always say the same thing - beyond general healthy eating guidelines, if you want nutritional advice, ask a Registered Dietitian. Nutrition is an important part of health, so you need to get good advice from a professional who has experience with cancer patients. Don't rely on something you read in a magazine (who's author may or may not have real expertise), or something your neighbor tells you. Different cancers and all the varied treatments create different nutritional needs. What's good for someone else may not be right for you.
When I was in treatment, I was frequently given advice - sometimes from complete strangers. I even had someone walk up to me while I was eating lunch and tell me how I shouldn't be eating what I was eating. It was a few days after a chemo treatment and I was just happy I'd found something that I could swallow and keep down. I think if I took everyone's advice I would only have been allowed to eat broccoli and brown rice - maybe. I did my own research, and came to my own conclusions. I've made decisions about my eating habits, but am definitely not qualified to give advice about the complexities of nutrition for anyone else.
I was recently introduced to a website and blog that does provide a lot of very good information and resources. It's written by Diana Dyer, Registered Dietitian, and author of "A Dietitian's Cancer Story, Information and Inspiration from a 3-time Cancer Survivor". If you have questions about nutrition, these sites and her book are a good place to start. Please visit Diana's site, CancerRD.com, or read her blog, filled with information and recipes.
Eat well, just get good information. And then go for a walk.
