    I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Interesting studies…
    That cycling route sounds pretty amazing!
    Cool ring tone too! Sounded like you have some wild animals running loose in your apartment. 🙂

    I’d love to hear your take on Resistant Starch (it’s being discussed a lot by Richard Nikoley (with his guest poster Tim) on FTA (http://freetheanimal.com/2013/11/resistant-american-comparison.html), and Mark Sisson & Chris Kresser have also blogged about it recently), given it’s association with gut health, it’s potential positive impact on colon cancer and it’s MIA status in the paleo world. I really trust your take on things and would love to hear you guys talk about it! Thanks.

    My mother (who has ~Stage 1 inoperable esophageal cancer) is successfully maintaining her weight with a ~ketogenic diet during her radiotherapy. She’s 75% of the way through the treatment and can still eat full meals (although it’s very hard). She’s keeping carbs <25g/day and is amazingly disciplined, only occasionally going over on protein. The diet gave her a new focus and lease of life after a crushing diagnosis. Even if it doesn't work, it's been wonderful for her mental well-being.

    However, she was given the following recommended shopping list by a nurse last week (she was given it in booklet form). The booklet intends to maintain weight (which she is already doing by eating high fat sources):-


    If it truly turns out that dietary sugar/carbs really do drive/maintain the growth of cancer then this is a train wreck of shopping list. There are a few fats on there, but it's mainly carb/sugar. I was very disturbed, especially given that the nurse was so nice – and was sure she was helping her. I kept quiet though – there's a time and a place to pick arguments.

    What gets me is that you would think this is one time the health experts would say fat is okay since it's supposed to be "fattening" and therefore weight maintaining. But the booklet actually is very limited in pushing fat, instead emphasising high carb intake. There is a section at the start, describing how a healthy diet is low in fat. Then it proceeds to tell her to slam down a ton of ice cream (that is high in fat and sugar) to maintain weight at all costs. It's very confusing.

    Hopefully the research will get to the truth. If the ketogenic diets and low carb approaches really do affect prognosis, then a lot will need to get changed.

      GLad to hear she is doing so well! That shopping list (like most for cancer patients) is really frustrating. People mean well, but are just way off the mark… The cognitive dissonance can be angering at times and you hit the mark – if fat actually makes you fat, then why not promote it? So many contradictions.

      Best of luck to your mother and hopefully she can give the cancer the one-two punch with treatment and diet!
