Frequently Asked Questions
You may have lots of questions about cancer treatment and prevention, and particularly about using Nutritious to support your efforts.
Can I use Nutritious for any type of cancer?
The research to date suggests metabolic differences in kidney cancer, melanoma and blood cancers mean that the approach underlying the diet in Nutritious is not going to be helpful.
How long do I need to be on the diet?
The research at this point in time doesn't give any specific indications. Keto diets of various lengths have been used in studies that have been published to date. If you can start the diet before your treatment and continue throughout it, this will give you the best support.
For cancer prevention, you might like to implement it for at least one month every 6 to 12 months.
What if I have allergies?
The most common food allergies are gluten and dairy and the diet is free from these. If you are sensitive to a particular ingredient, it can often be left out or substituted for another one on the list of allowed ingredients provided in the book.
Can the rest of my family eat the same diet?
Yes, the diet is likely to be very beneficial to their overall health due to its high levels of phytonutrients. It can promote healthy weight loss and metabolic flexibility, and is anti-inflammatory.
