I've heard alot about cutting protein out of my diet to "uninvite" cancer back. Anyone out there have any evidence or info to support this. I can't believe that cutting protein out of your diet is a good thing. I thought we needed protein. Help??

    Hello Carolyn, Did the articles you read recommend to cut out animal protein? I think that is what the suggestion is: to eat a plant-based diet, to reduce the risk of getting several illnesses like cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease. The tissue needs protein to build and repair itself. Legumes, whole grains, soy will deliver the 20 essential amino acids, if you mix it up and eat a variety of plant foods. http://www.leilanifarmsanctuary.org/43.html Have you tried Quinoa? It is a complete protein source from plants. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quinoa#Nutritional_value Kris Carr also has great nutritional information regarding the vegan lifestyle. http://crazysexylife.com/tag/diet/ and so does Gillian McKeith from "You are what you eat". I hope this helped a little bit. Good luck with your research and let me know what you found out. Warm wishes. Kornelia

      Kornelia,
      Thanks so much for your input. It does seem like the more I ask about this subject, the more I hear about plant based protein, so I guess that is the way to go. Have you changed your diet? I was diagnosed at the end of March and had my lumpectomy April 19th. Radiation starts in a couple of weeks. I am really lucky we caught it early and it was stage 1. I noticed you were also diagnosed in 2011. How are you doing?

      Hello Carolyn,
      I was always interested in how nutrition and exercise can positively influence our well-being. The choice is ours and I see it as a lifestyle and not a diet. I try to incorporate body, mind and soul, with a vegetarian lifestyle, daily exercise outside, meditation, yoga and loving relationships. The interest started in my teenage years, and then got more serious, once my daughter was born. It is a family affair now to eat healthy and exercise. So I think my good health status will help me with my recovery.
      Thank you for asking about how I am doing.
      When I feel depressed it helps me to go out into nature and move my body. I live close to the beach, so every day I go for a walk. Also I love to ride my bike and go for a swim. Afterwards I feel much better and positive.
      I was diagnosed with Invasive ductal carcinoma, stage 1 in my right breast in April. Also they found atypical cells in my left breast. I tested estrogen/progesterone positive. I had bilateral mastectomies on Tuesday, May 10th and went home on Wednesday, May 11th. I feel really good, the pain is not too bad. I can't wait to get the drains out though. I walk around a little bit and then relax. I can sleep on my back in my own bed which is awesome. So far I'm not planning to get reconstruction. Today my surgeon called and told me that the pathology report showed that the lymph nodes were negative. I'll keep you posted, what my oncologist will suggest for further treatment.
      I wish you the best for your radiation treatment and that you will tolerate it well. My thoughts are with you.
      Love,
      Kornelia

      Hello Carolyn,
      before your radiation treatment I would talk to the oncologist about special foods and supplements to help you tolerate the radiation. There is a lot of information available regarding this: http://www.gaia-health.com/articles401/000418-natural-radiation-treatment.shtml. You might also want to talk to a nutritionist, who is specialist in cancer patients.

    It's impossible to cut protein out of your diet. I imagine you are talking about animal protein? I have read that animal proteins and refined/processed sugars/foods can feed cancer cells. It's a journey that's for sure!
