Silencing the nutrition nonsense: How The Restore Programme clears up the confusion regarding diet and cancer

22 May 2024
Living With and Beyond Cancer Theatre
For anyone facing a diagnosis of cancer, their relationship with food can change dramatically and many people can be left confused and in a muddle knowing what to eat in order to better their health. Nutrition is so important for people facing cancer for several reasons: - Being overweight/obese is associated with 13 different types of cancer -Nutrients in food can provide anti-cancer effects -Treatment for cancer (chemotherapy/radiotherapy/immunotherapy and surgery) can lead to side effects making eating and drinking difficult -Cancer increases the body's nutritional requirements -Maintaining a healthy body weight is important to withstand cancer treatment and other side effects - Relationships with food can change out of fear/stress/ preferences After a diagnosis of cancer, many people will change their diet in some way. There is so much information out there readily available about diet and cancer, a lot of which is not underpinned by science or research. Registered Dietitian and leading Nutritionist, Charlotte, has developed The Restore Programme - an online digital nutrition resource packed with videos and downloadable material which takes the user through anything and everything they could want to know about nutrition and cancer. The Restore Programme provides the knowledge and know-how, examining the evidence and claims regarding diet and cancer and give lots of practical information to help patients navigate their relationship with food wherever they are on their treatment journey. It is also a fantastic resource for friends and family supporting loved ones through their diagnosis.
