I've been reading all these posts about how healthy everyone is eating. I have been the exact opposite. Since my cancer surgery, I have gained weight and can't seem to get a handle on it. I keep thinking that I received a second chance and should take better care of myself, but I think I have been too stressed out by the events of the last 7 months. I also have chronic Fibromyalgia which makes it so hard to exercise the way one would need to, to drop weight. I have had much success in the past with a high protein/low carb/low fat diet. The weight comes off quickly, without having to kill myself with exercise and that's what I feel I need to do. My doctor said he had no concerns about any kind of diet I wanted to follow, but sometimes I find these doctor's only know about surgery, tumors, etc and don't really know much about natural practices, nutrition, etc.
My tumor was small, they only removed part of my kidney and they say they got it all, so my question is: What is your opinion of a very high protein diet for 4-5 months time if I then switched over to a diet that included more of all the good food groups, smoothies and all of that? Just wondering if I'm going to bring my cancer back by going with high protein for a few months. Thanks.
