Current ketogenic diet proposals for cancer management are questionable

I've been saying for a while now that these ketogenic diet proposals for cancer management have been deeply flawed- the inclusion of dairy and the lack of consideration for the role particular amino acids play in proliferation of these defective cells.

  1. Andrew, I first heard you on a podcast (I believe maybe it was with Jimmy Moore?). I was so happy to hear you have had good results with the ketogenic diet for your tumor. A few years ago I lost a close family member to glioblastoma and unfortunately at that time, it was too late to try a ketogenic diet. However, since then, I have been following a zero carb ketogenic diet for my colitis, and I love it!

    I just wanted to agree with you that I think dairy is not a good recommendation for the keto diet for quite a few reasons. I believe it is inflammatory, for one. It is constipating for another. Also, in my case, it causes blood sugar spikes, and I think it does generally for most people.

    Anyway, I am so happy to hear your story and follow your blog! Here's my new blog if you'd like to see it (I have included your blog in my "Resources" posting!). http://ketoforcolitis.sosblogs.com/

    1. Thank you so much for your very kind words. I am deeply saddened by your loss and I'm very sorry to hear you have lost a family member to this dreadful disease.

      I'm glad that you have found a personalised dietary approach that is working well for you and I really appreciate the support. I'm looking forward to reading your blog. :)
