      My husband has been on a ketogenic diet suggested by his oncologist. He has out lived by far what they originally predicted. He also has lost around 85 lbs in the past year, which he wanted to do. This diet is healthy for anyone. I will post some links so you can check it out. It is basically a modified atkins diet. Low carb, moderate protein and higher fat. You adjust the fat depending on your purpose. If you want to lose weight you cut the fat down so your body burns your fat. if you want to maintain your weight then you eat more fat so your body burns that fat and you maintain the weight. This diet teaches your body to burn fat instead of carbs for energy. Carbs turn into sugar which feeds the cancer. That is why it is best to go low carb but still make sure you are getting all of the nutrients you need. Obviously it is not good to start any diet without consulting your doctor first. This diet has worked very well for my husband and we truly believe that it has helped him stay alive along with his treatment and of course God. Here is a good link that really does a good job at explaining the diet and giving you a food list. https://www.perfectketo.com/full-ketogenic-diet-food-list/

      All fruit & veggies contain some protein. That is how animals build their protein, @BarbarainBham.

      The sprouts have a protein wallop. The celery & cuke are mineral rich as is parsley. Ginger & turmeric are familiar, yes?
