There are books available to prevent cancer but this exceptional book, Eating Well Through Cancer focuses on the person in cancer treatment. Anyone affected by cancer knows that patients lose their strength and appetite while fighting the disease. In order to improve their nutrition and heal, they still have to eat, but what? In response to these questions, Holly Clegg, author of the best selling Trim & Terrific TM cookbooks and successful cancer researcher and oncologist Dr. Gerald Miletello introduce Eating Well Through Cancer, which provides a way to improve nutrition to maintain health and give strength to fight cancer.
The more than 250 recipes are divided into sections based on the side effects and symptoms cancer patients experience during treatment. The book is an invaluable resource of information offering tips, menus, nutritional information and the diabetic exchanges for cancer patients and their families.
This new edition of the cookbook includes:
- Updated information for each side effect chapter

Most of the recipes are simple everyday dishes with a healthy twist, where Clegg's "never sacrifice taste" philosophy is paramount. "Food that is good for you can be delicious and easy to prepare," says Clegg. "Nutrition is important in prevention and sustaining a healthy lifestyle." Dr. Miletello has always been interested in helping patients maintain good nutrition while undergoing chemotherapy. "Although no diet has been proven to prevent cancer, health authorities agree that a properly chosen diet can reduce the risk of developing certain cancers," says Dr. Miletello. "We also feel that a properly chosen diet can help you to fight cancer once you have developed it."
Any patient undergoing chemotherapy will find this book to be an essential asset. The recipes are simple, tasty and easy to prepare. The last Chapter contains healthy nutritious recipes that are aimed at maintaining a smart healthy lifestyle.
