    Has anyone changed their diet to eliminate all sugar?
    Is Keto diet a cure for cancer?

      Thank you all for your excellent responses.
      I do already stick to an all natural, sensible diet, avoiding GMOs, artificial ingredients, using organic when sensible, making home made cooking as much as possible. I also love to bake, and take treats to share at work. I love carbs.
      The problem I have is, my daughter has been on Keto since November.
      She insists I also go on this. I already told her I read up on it and choose not to .
      I said let's agree to disagree. It's a strain on our relationship. I get so frustrated.
      I know that cancer has no rhyme or reason.

      My experience with some people who convert to eating programs like Keto or Paleo (and untold others) is that they tend to become so devoted to their new dietary ideology that they begin to proselytize to gain new converts.

      Your daughter's intentions are undoubtedly driven by love and concern for you and your health. Nonetheless, her efforts to convert you can be very stressful for you.

      Can you explain to her that the discussions about diet are stressful and upsetting to you, especially while you are dealing with cancer treatments, periodic scans and the unpredictable and senseless nature of cancer.

      I am sorry that you are going through this. Having happy supportive relationships with family is a huge advantage as you manage your cancer. I hope you can achieve this with your daughter.
