    A friend just insists that I join her in this keto diet.

    Can someone explain to me what the noise is about this diet? And what would be the benefits or negatives be for someone on treatments or past treatments?

      Diets should like shoes should fit the individual. There was a dietitian on my cancer team. I had regular appointments with her during treatment. After that my PCP referred me a dietitian 2 visits a year. Right now I am working with my Drs on pain management through diet. Basically they have done blood tests and determined what nutrients that I am deficient in. Then discussed ways to get them into my diet.

      BoiseB I had a dietician on my treatment team as well, and she told me to limit fats and red meat, and eat lots of chicken white meat with no breading. I try to follow her advice for the most part even now that the cancer is gone. That being said, I sometimes just have to have a big ole juicy cheeseburger. That doesn't mean McGarbage though.
