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!).

    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. :)
