When someone is going through a life threatening illnesses, it can be difficult to find an easily tolerated and healthy diet. A common issue with cancer, in particular, is that treatments often affect taste and appetite. This can possibly result in loss of weight or a deficiency in essential nutrients, leaving patients feeling weaker at a time when they need more strength and energy. For others, treatment can result in unwanted weight gain.
This 6 week course is for patients and carers wanting to explore healthy eating during treatment and recovery.
