Eat healthy and stay strong!

One issue with cancer is that even its treatment has some very bad effects on your body. Whether chemotherapy, radiation or even surgery, everything about your body changes. The taste and smell of food start to be different. You may notice some changes in your bowel habits, your metabolism and nutrients absorption. Nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite are also very common. All these factors lead to malnutrition and severe weight loss. This malnutrition means that your body is not getting the important nutrients to make it function normally. In other cases, some treatments lead to excessive increase in weight. Proper nutrition was proved to be a key element in fighting the disease by accelerating the healing process and repairing the damage resulting from the disease or its treatment. Also, a balanced diet helps your body nourish and stay strong. That is why it is really important during the courses of treatment to fuel your body with adequate amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.
