When you’re suffering from cancer, it’s important to eat well. This way, you have enough calories and nutrients for your body to remain strong. But sometimes, you won’t feel like eating at all.
Don’t get me wrong, people do lose weight during cancer treatment. This is not healthy either. It usually happens because you tend to lose your appetite from the treatment. The act of sitting down and having a meal will feel like a chore.
Getting Enough Calories
If you’re undergoing cancer treatment, you’ll need more calories than usual. You can get this in foods rich in carbohydrates such as bread, pasta and legumes. You can also have fish, avocados and chicken.
Getting Enough Protein
While high calories are certainly necessary, you should also remember to consume a lot of protein. Protein can be very healthy for your body, as it will heal your tissue and aid in cell growth. Protein also helps if you have a healthy immune system.
