Morning Rentawitch (love the s/n)

No I didn't mention it to the hospital staff. As I said earlier I wasn't Paleo for a 1.5 year out of treatment. What I can tell you is this. My MO (medical oncologist) said "don't be going on a crazy diet"....this after not saying a word about my trying vegetarian, vegan, calorie reduction, no exercise plans. My Surgeon didn't even blink, nor comment. My PCP was all for it, said "this is the way we were meant to eat". I was also seeing a GI specialist because I'd developed ulcerative colitis after chemo & rads. Within a month of going Paleo he said the following "whatever you're doing, keep doing it". My ulcerative colitis hasn't shown it's ugly face since I switched up to Paleo (4 years now)....remission? cured? No clue, but it works for me.  I find the reaction from the medical community mixed. For the most part I find they make a helluva lot of assumption without actually knowing the facts....like we're all eating sides of bbq beef for breakfast. A friend of mine has an oncologist that is Paleo....so hopefully viewpoints are changing. End of the day, my bloodwork has been termed 'perfect' now, tummy is great, energy huge and muscle mass increased, which is the proof in the pudding for me.

Hi Rentawitch,,

Assuming that you're in treatment presently, I first want to say I'm sorry that you've been diagnosed and find yourself in these shoes. I wish I'd found Paleo before, but unfortunately I was approx. 1 1/2 years out when I made the switch. I was ER+ PR- Her2- (actually almost Triple Neg), with a 5 mm tumour, no nodes+.  I was given the same party line as you were and managed to pack on a whopping 25 lbs during chemo and rads.  One prescription for tamoxifen later and the weight was stuck to me with crazy glue. I'd been suffering some long term SEs after treatment and recovery was slow (energy & strength)Paleo changed all that. I couldn't believe how much better I felt in a very short time. I'm not sure if you're aware of the fasting and chemo technique to offset chemo SEs, but apparently it's pretty effective. I think the diet is worth a shot also.

Sorry I can't be of any help but just wanted to chime in with my 2 cents. Wishing you a smooth ride in treatment and a speedy recovery. You got this!

Date sugar, if it's sugar extracted from dates like it sounds like, is not paleo.  Dates and almonds are paleo, but whether you want to include them depends on what your goal is for going paleo.  If you want to reduce fat, they're better to leave out, focusing on meat and green vegetables instead.

Donglailly, less veggies and fruit, especially fruit, might help.  Also, cut out any starchy "vegetables".  However, to really identify the culprit, you'd need to start a food journal and write down everything you eat.  Then people who have been here a while would be able to point out likely culprits.
