I am VERY excited to announce that The Cancer Dietitian has a new program to offer! It’s called Nutrition After Cancer: What to Eat, What to Avoid and it’s a Survivor Diet educational series delivered to your email box! Thanks to the help of my dietetic intern, Jacqie Shoe, and her co-interns in the Virginia Tech dietetic internship program, it is now available for you to sign up!
If you’re tired of wondering what you should and should not be eating as a cancer survivor, caregiver or someone interested in risk reduction, then this series is for you! There is a lot of confusion about what is “good” and “bad” for cancer survivors to eat, but this series will teach you about the basics of a healthy diet that isn’t just good for survivors, but for everyone!
This program is a great complement to my webinar – Plant Based Eating for Cancer Survivors Do’s and Don’ts .
As most of you know, I take a no nonsense, common sense approach to delivering nutrition information. First of all, I want to make sure my followers know the most evidence based information regarding nutrition and cancer. FYI – most of the info you read online, on social media, and hear on the news is NOT evidence based. At best, they report on the most recent research study, which isn’t always that helpful.
For more on that – check out my article here: How to Read Nutrition News Without Losing Your Mind!
In fact… this week there was a bunch of news coverage of a recent study regarding diet and health. The conclusion is something that I’ve been talking about for years! It’s not what people are eating that is causing the most harm, it’s what they AREN’T EATING that is the biggest concern. Check out what I wrote 6 years ago (almost to the date!!) – This is What’s Wrong With America’s Diet!
It is time that we stop focusing on what we shouldn’t have and what we think is bad, or toxic. That’s negative and depressing. It’s time to key in on the most important things to put on your plate.
That’s what this educational series is for! I’ve designed it to cover my list of 6 daily habits of foods to include. Once you build that base, then you can layer other “choose your own adventure” preferences on top.
I broke it down so that you will get one email per week. There’s no use in trying to work on too many things at once. Take it easy and learn a little bit at a time is my theory. Probably most of you are already doing many of the things I recommend, so it will hopefully give you the encouragement and “pat on the back” that you’re doing a good job and to keep it up!
Have questions? Contact me!
As a special bonus, anyone who stick with me through the end of this series and fill out the survey to receive a free Plant-Based Diet printable and be entered for a chance to win a complimentary one on one phone consultation with me! I will pick a winner once a month. 🙂
I hope this is something you will find useful, or that you will recommend to a friend!
