Our doctors at Choice Cancer Care can suggest ways for you to take care of yourself by eating well. You need the sufficient amount of calories to maintain a good weight. You also need a sufficient amount of protein to keep up your strength. Eating healthy may help you feel better and have more energy.
From time to time, especially during or soon after your cancer treatment, you may not feel like eating anything. You could possibly feel uncomfortable or tired. You may find that the tastes of foods are different and that they don’t taste as good as they used to. You may also experience the side effects of your cancer treatment (such as reduced appetite, nausea, vomiting, or mouth sores) which could also make it difficult to eat properly.
Proper nutrition is important not only during cancer treatments but also to help your body stay healthy at all times. We are there for you every step of the way and our health care team will help you to create the proper diet suited for you and your lifestyle.
