This booklet has been prepared to help you understand more about nutrition and how to eat well before, during and after cancer treatment.
We cover the general guidelines for healthy eating and some of the common eating problems caused by cancer or its treatment. There are tips for managing these issues, as well as some simple recipes to make at home. We cannot give advice about the best diet for you. You need to discuss this with your doctors, nurses and dietitians. However, we hope this information will answer some of your questions and help you think about other questions to ask your treatment team or dietitian.
This booklet does not need to be read from cover to cover - just read the parts that are useful to you. Some terms that may be unfamiliar are explained in the glossary. You may also like to pass this booklet to family and friends for their information.
