Best Foods To Eat During Chemotherapy!

Best Foods To Eat During Chemotherapy!

11 Best foods to eat during chemotherapy:

These healing foods may help minimize chemo side effects. 

1. Carrots give chemo a boost

Carrots are a chemotherapy superfood. Certain plant compounds, which are also found in parsley, can make chemo more effective by stopping a mechanism in the body that can sometimes interfere with cancer treatment, according to a recent study by the new zealand institute for plant and food research. Researchers hope these foods “could be used to complement conventional treatments to potentially deliver better results for patients. 


2. Gravy combats dry mouth

If your dry mouth—a common side effect of chemo—makes swallowing difficult, try moistening your food by covering it with sauces, gravies, or even low fat milk. Liquefying foods in a blender will also help your meal go down a little easier.


3. Rice and bananas for diarrhea


Bland foods like rice, bananas, cooked apples, and dry toast will help bind your stool if you have diarrhea from chemotherapy. Avoid fatty foods, raw fruits, and whole grain products, which can make diarrhea worse. You can also try these home remedies for diarrhea.


4. Whole grains battle constipation


On the other hand, if you are constipated, drinking plenty of fluids and eating foods high in insoluble fiber, such as whole grain breads or cereals, dried fruits, and dried beans or peas, will aid your digestive system. The national cancer institute (nci) recommends drinking eight to 12 cups of liquid a day for those undergoing cancer treatment. Here are other sneaky ways you might be making yourself dehydrated.

5. Small meals help with appetite loss


Loss of appetite is a common side effect of chemotherapy, but instead of forcing yourself to eat three big meals, eat five or six smaller meals throughout the day to stay properly nourished and energized. Adding protein supplements and higher-calorie foods to your diet will help you sustain a healthy weight. However, always consult your doctor to personalize your diet according to your condition, diagnosis, and needs.

6. Ginger candy eases nausea


Chemo often leaves you with a queasy stomach, but ginger candy and lemon drops work like a charm. Suck on them before eating, or sip on some flat ginger ale or cola during your meal. This will help ease your dizziness and settle your stomach. These are more natural remedies for an upset stomach.


7. Custard for mouth sores


Mouth sores can make it painful to eat even the softest of foods. If treatment has left your mouth in pain, try pureed foods that are easy to swallow, such as custards, rice, eggs, porridge, and soups. The blander the better, since salt or spices can make sores even more painful. Avoid sharp or crunchy foods like crackers, chips, and raw vegetables, as well as spicy foods like hot sauces, curry dishes, salsa, and chili peppers, which also irritate sores.

8. Orange juice prevents dry mouth


Ward off dry mouth before it takes hold by filling your diet with plenty of sweet and tart foods. According to the nci, drinking liquids like lemonade and orange juice will help you produce more saliva because their tartness stimulates your saliva glands. However, do not eat or drink these foods if your treatment has left you with a sore mouth or throat, as they will make your symptoms worse. These are other fruit juices that are healthier than you thought.

9. Onion and garlic boost your immune system

Grilled, cooked, or raw, onions and garlic are highly recommended as cancer fighters, as their high levels of antioxidants have been shown to stimulate the immune system’s natural defenses against cancer. In fact, cornell researchers found that strong-flavored onions could even inhibit the growth of some cancer cells. Here are more foods with cancer-fighting abilities.

10. Lean protein maintains energy and muscle

The nci recommends eating more protein when undergoing chemotherapy to give you energy and keep your muscles strong when treatment is draining. Opt for lean proteins like eggs, fish, tofu, and chicken. Many people with cancer find that red meat takes on an unpleasant metallic taste.

11. Selenium-rich foods fight cancer

Brazil nuts, seafood, oats, and brown rice are all great sources of selenium, a cancer-fighting mineral. A study published in the journal of biological chemistry found that selenium compounds boost the immune system, allowing it to fight certain cancers like leukemia and melanoma. However, avoid eating shellfish and raw fish.

Visible And Invisible Fat - Know What They Are!

Visible And Invisible Fat - Know What They Are!

Which fat or oil is best is a global question and one answer does not fit all sizes. Fat is an integral part of our meal to prepare the food and enjoy its taste. Fat also makes you fat and due to which it has received a bad reputation. Is it only the fat which is a culprit of myriad of health problems? Think again my dear, as they provide energy, gives fullness or satiety after every meal, enhance absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K; cushion and contour the body organs; supports hormone production and brain functions.

  • Whenever, fats and oils are consumed in excess or are not metabolized properly in the body, It becomes dangerous and tends to make the body overweight, obese and a hub of diseases. Obesity in itself is a big phenomenon which adversely affects physical, mental, emotional, social and even occupational health. Since edible fats play a significant role in obesity so first lets us understand the types of fat are available to us.
  • Visible fats are the ones which you see in the form of butter, cooking oils (vegetable oils), ghee, hydrogenated fat (dalda), margarine, lard etc. Invisible fat is hidden fat which is inherently present in the food in varying amounts such as milk, egg, almonds, walnut, peanut, flax seed, sesame seed, wheat, spices, avocado etc. So fat from fried samosa or potato chips is different from the fat found in almonds or coconut or egg. Both may provide same calories, because 1 gram of fat or oil provides 9 calories irrespective of the source.
  • The source of fat, fatty acid composition of fat, how it is processed and how it is stored determines the nutritional and health significance of fat and oils. According to an expert group of Indian Medical Research Council and National Institute of Nutrition, a person diet should contain both types of fat in 50:50 proportion following Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA). For a healthy adult 20 grams, visible fat is necessary for a day. The amount may vary according to the physiological conditions. Each source of fat is different in its fatty acid composition. Solid fats are generally saturated fat which should be consumed in minimum quantity while vegetable oils are consumed in recommended amount only.
  • Visible fats except butter and ghee are not eaten as such but after cooking or processing. Refined oils are already processed and if used at high heat for longer duration tends to get oxidized and thus harmful for the body and cause several diseases including heart diseases. Invisible fats contain more appropriate proportion of desirable fatty acids like Omega-3 fatty acid which are supportive in many biological functions. They are present in large amount like in nuts but eaten in less amount. They should be part of your regular diet. Since most of the invisible fats are unsaturated so tend to get rancid (off flavor and off-odor) when stored under hot and humid environment. Do not shun all fats from your diet. Choose wisely and use judiciously.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
