POWERFULLY GOOD, POWERFULLY YUM
A TARGETED APPROACH
Nutritious: Metabolic Fasting for Cancer is a toolkit, full of guidelines and recipes that translate cancer research into what you can easily do at home.
This revolutionary approach offers a template to give you a better chance of healing by eating a ratio of healthy fats and plant-based proteins that are low in carbohydrates. Research has shown us that cancer cells generally rely on glucose as their main energy source to grow and multiply. It is also now known that cancer cells can also use various alternative sources for energy, such as amino acids, especially those found in high amounts in animal protein. This book integrates these findings with burgeoning research on the powerful health benefits of a plant-based diet, and is truly cutting edge in its formulation of how to eat, providing nutritious and tasty recipes.
This book can be used in conjunction with any treatment a person may be undertaking: chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, or alternative therapies. Nutritious: Metabolic Fasting for Cancer will also benefit people in cancer remission and people who are concerned about cancer prevention due to a family history of cancer.
Nutritious: Metabolic Fasting for Cancer contains:
More than 60 mouth-watering recipes that are easy to prepare
A 14-day meal plan
Food lists and shopping guides to help you get started
Useful tips to make transitioning to and sustaining this plant-based ketogenic diet as simple as possible
Practical strategies and guidance for days you are tired or suffering from the side-effects of treatment.
Nina provides an engaging and well written resource for people who have a diagnosis of cancer. With clear explanations, beautiful photography, a wealth of useful information, and a foreword by Professor Kerry Bone, this informative book gives readers an in-depth rationale for the approach as well as providing patients with the tools and knowledge to follow this diet with confidence.
PACKED FULL OF PHYTOCHEMICALS
“The genius of this book is the way it deciphers the basic objective of a defined carbohydrate, protein and fat intake from vegan sources into daily meal plans, skillfully turning theory into practice. A nutritious vegan ketogenic diet is a huge challenge, especially one that must be rich in cancer-fighting phytochemicals. To solve this puzzle with recipes that are both appetising and wholesome is a Herculean achievement, not surprising though, given that Nina is an accomplished cook and natural therapist. And the recipes are delicious, I know because I have eaten them.
This book will be of huge benefit to my patients with cancer (or who wish to prevent it) and I can’t wait to use it. In fact, it is the first book I know of that provides a practical and realistic way to achieve a truly healthy vegan ketogenic diet for cancer.”
PROFESSOR KERRY BONE
I am amazed at the information, useful knowledge and delicious healthy recipes that Nutritious contains.
This is an excellent book, well written with clear explanations. This book is outstanding and I know that it will be a valuable resource for many patients with cancer.
After half a century of reading about these things, I found the case studies most interesting.
I would highly recommend this book to patients as I have not seen anything that compares with it in quality or relevance for people with cancer.
