What is a frenzy 30 days keto diet plan? What do we include and exclude while on this diet? Every diet has its cons and pros. Patients or dieting people are often confused. They struggle and ask themselves, am I eating too much or too little? Is this diet for me, or is it a placebo? Many questions await for an answer. The only thing I can say is that during my treatment, I had tried many of the diets on myself to see the effect of some nutrients on the aggressive chemotherapy and radiation.
While on treatment, I tried Juices with radish, carrots, and beetroots, I can say that kept my hemoglobin and red blood cells at normal levels. I ate salads with beetroots, eggs, and everything this diet allows. The truth is that I substitute the butter with sesame and olive oil. I am not a fan of butter or coconut oil. I have never had cholesterol, and when I started introducing the coconut oil in my food, my cholesterol went up. Hence, my advice is not to use it but to use healthier fat, such as olive oil, sesame, grape seeds oils.
I explained in a previous post, the rules, or the foundation of the ketogenic diet. They are quite simple; You have to minimize the intake of carbohydrates and replace them with moderate amounts of healthier proteins and healthy fats (butter has never been a healthy fat nor fried food). This type of diet can help to reduce the proliferation of new cancer cells during cancer treatment and after surgery. I am well aware that during treatment, our body cannot stick to a strict diet, so you can try what is best for you during the treatment and what does not make you noxious. My only advice is to try to stick to the beetroot juice with carrots and radishes.
A standard ketogenic diet includes 5% carbs, high and healthier fat 75%; Protein 20%. The daily intake is calculated according to the calories needed of the dieting person.
Fish and sea products are recommended attributes for this diet. Nevertheless, I recommend eating fish with less mercury (most contains mercury, especially the bigger ones). I never recommend eating shellfish because of the possibility of attracting norovirus. When on therapy, we have to minimize the health hazards related to food, and shellfish is always a health hazard. You can add to the diet, eggs, poultry, and beef meat.
I also do not recommend milk because milk contains casein protein. Researchers have proved its cancerogenic effects on rats. You can always substitute it with almond or other milk not containing casein. Cheese and plain yogurt are some of the recommended products of this diet. However, eat it with moderations and let the majority of fat sources be from fish, avocado, and healthy oils.
Believe it or not, there are low and high carbs vegetables. Hence, for this diet, choose low carbs vegetables. These types of veggies have a lower content of calories. Always the vegetable of choice must be from the tables I have listed below.
Fruits you can consume
Why are dips a very important part of every diet? When on diet, we feel that we are on so many restrictions. Those restrictions lead to diet-failure. Dips help us overcome the feeling of hunger and constant deprivation. In future posts, I will be talking about dips, and I will be giving tips related to the keto diet. Baba ganoush is a nutritious dip, and it is an allowed food during dieting. It contains eggplants, garlic, and tahini. You can always substitute tahini with light mayonnaise or plain yogurt.
Facts you need to understand and know, how a keto diet may help cancer patients to fight their condition while on treatment and after surgery. The most actual information is about the flexibility of our cells. Whether healthy cells or cancer cells, both use glucose as a source of energy. Unlike cancer cells, healthy cells are flexible and can switch the source of energy. When on a ketogenic diet, the healthy cells can use ketone bodies as the source of energy, while cancer cells cannot use this type of energy. Once cancer cells are deprived of glucose, they start apoptosis (cell death).
The diet is not safe for people with conditions involving the pancreas liver, thyroid gland, and gallbladder.
