Diet Tips From Helping My Boyfriend Recover From Cancer Treatment

I give myself 20% margin for “not-so Clean Eating” 80% vs 20% rule!
No Antibiotic / free range / clean meats.  Actually, we decreased beef and pork to once every week or two.

We gave ourselves a veggie drink on a fairly empty stomach every day or every other day with organic:
Kale or Spinach, Beets, Celery, Green Apple, Carrots, Ginger. We are talking about a juicer here, not a blender. THEN, it’s drinkable and delicious!

Some ph strips to check weekly that your urine is alkaline.

Not more than 200 calories of sugar/alcohol daily, little or no meat, little or no processed food, 2 cups fruit, 4 cups veggies daily.

Now, when the individual is losing weight due to dryness and lack of desire to eat, here are some things that worked for us.
Acupuncture helped a lot. Lots of water constantly. Have easy snacks that are high in calories but not sugar. For example two handfuls of cashews and a handful of raisins are about 400 calories. A few cups of grapes or frozen grapes are 300 for 2 cups.

Finally, also on empty stomach daily or every other day, usually alternating with veggie drink:
*Teaspoon of baking soda in glass
*Add cup of good water, stir
*Squeeze small lemon (organic preferably, but that rind is pretty thick and they are $1.50 per organic lemon usually!!!)
*Stir… watch out for overflow drink❤️

After starting chemo, white blood cells are pretty low, so taking supplements, acupuncture and the juicing and guidelines I shared to raise it, is to build. Chemo pulls it done a lot and dries up everything. Juicing and keeping your body alkaline can truly build it up and build your immune system. As you know, stay as stress-free as possible… not easy during this time. So, get proactive with diet, meditating and exercise, even if it’s walking or stretching. Creative positive visualization is also wonderful❤️make that time a priority. Some music time would help a lot too!

“The Truth about Cancer” by TyBollinger is excellent. The DVD’s were easier to understand for us.

About the Author:

Michelle Present, author of Count 2 Indulge, struggled for years with weight and body image. As a dancer, she knew that maintaining weight and being healthy needed to be mutually exclusive in order to keep the work flowing in. Count 2 Indulge is a lifestyle program that promotes healthy, nutritious eating habits while allowing you to enjoy all the foods you love to indulge in — without guilt, frustration, or yo-yo dieting. She was desperate to find something that worked, and other diets just seemed to create the yo-yo effect. What she realized was that even if she did have the willpower to control her eating, it would only be a matter of time before she weakened and splurged again on something she shouldn’t have. Besides, why should she deprive herself of the foods she loved? Sick of the roller coaster numbers on the scale, she came up with something simple and easy that allowed her to eat all the foods she still loved. It was not a restrictive, unsustainable weight loss diet, it was a method of by-sight calculating that provided a permanent solution. And the best part was, she could still indulge and eat the foods she loved. Now in her 60s, Michelle is living life to the fullest. She loves dancing, laughing, and indulging in life’s greater pleasures — including delicious food that is typically “forbidden.” And she loves every minute of it!
