6 Superfoods for Cancer Patients
2 Nausea Busters
Because cancer treatments affect healthy cells as well
as cancer cells, it's important to give your body the tools it needs to
rebuild and stay strong, and the best way to do this is through the food
you eat. "They used to tell cancer patients to eat anything that
sounded good -- whether it was milkshakes or pudding -- just to keep
your weight on. But it really does matter what foods you're eating,"
says Jennifer Reilly, senior nutritionist for the Cancer Project. Give
yourself every advantage you can during treatment by adding these
superfoods to your diet.
To keep nausea at bay, snack on whole wheat toast. You'll not only
keep your stomach from churning, you'll give yourself a good dose of
fiber, which the body uses to keep your digestive tract healthy. It's
also good as a remedy for diarrhea. Eat dry if possible, or with a small
pat of butter.
