Yes List

For cancer patients, eating well means consuming a variety of foods that provide the nutrients needed to help maintain their health while battling cancer. These essential nutrients include:

  • Protein. Protein helps to repair body tissue, maintain the immune system’s health and ensure growth. With insufficient protein, the body’s resistance to infection is reduced and recovery from illness may take longer. Therefore, cancer patients may require more protein than those without cancer. After surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy, extra protein is typically needed to mend tissues and help prevent infection. Good sources of protein include:

    • Lean meat and poultry
    • Fish
    • Low-fat dairy products
    • Nuts
    • Dried beans, lentils and peas
    • Soy foods
    • Egg whites

  • Carbohydrates and fats. These nutrients supply the body with the majority of its caloric needs. The amount of calories a person needs depends on size, age and level of physical activity. Sources of carbohydrates include:

    • Fruits
    • Vegetables
    • Pasta and breads
    • Grains and cereals
    • Dried beans, lentils and peas

    Sources of fat include:

    • Seeds and nuts
    • Butter, margarine and oils
    • Cheeses and other fatty dairy products
    • The fat in poultry, fish and meats
    • Egg yolks

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) revised food pyramid (now known as My Pyramid) suggests limiting consumption of fats and oils. In addition, fish oils and some vegetable oils, such as olive oil, have health benefits. The USDA recommends avoiding artery-clogging trans fats (such as partially hydrogenated vegetable shortening), saturated fats and cholesterol.

  • Vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are the basics for proper growth and development. They also enable the body to use the energy (calories) supplied in foods. Individuals who eat a balanced diet with sufficient calories and protein typically get enough vitamins and minerals. However, some side effects of cancer treatment can make eating a balanced diet very challenging. Therefore, physicians may recommend that patients who are undergoing cancer treatment take a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement.

  • Water. Water and other fluids are essential to good health. Individuals who do not consume enough water, or lose water due to vomiting or diarrhea, can become dehydrated. Patients should ask their physician or dietitian how many ounces of water they should consume daily.

In general, cancer patients should strive to consume the following each day:

  • Six servings of grains, preferably whole (unrefined)
  • Three to five servings of vegetables
  • Two to four servings of fruit
  • Eight 8-ounce glasses of water

Many cancer patients seek nutritional support prior to beginning cancer treatment. Early nutrition screening and assessment can help to identify any problems that may impact the success of cancer therapy. Early discovery and treatment of nutrition problems may help a patient maintain a healthy weight and reduce some of the complications from treatment. Patients who are otherwise healthy typically respond better to cancer therapy.

The patient’s cancer care team can play a vital role in maintaining adequate nutrition. The team usually includes a medical oncologist, oncology nurses and a social worker. Depending on the type of cancer, it may include a radiation oncologist, surgeon, psychologist and dietitian. Working together, the team can help the patient maintain the best nutritional status as possible.

Cancer patients who are unable to eat well because of treatment-related side effects may benefit from nutritional therapy. Nutritional therapy is designed to help patients in active treatment and recovery as well as those with advanced cancer. Goals of nutritional therapy may include preventing/correcting malnutrition, decreasing nutrition-related side effects, improving the patient’s quality of life. Nutritional therapy varies according to patient and treatment type, but may include:

  • A specialized diet plan
  • Nutritional supplement beverages
  • Enteral nutrition (a short-term feeding tube inserted through the nose, down the throat and into the stomach, or a long-term tube surgically placed through the abdomen into the stomach or small intestine)
  • Parenteral nutrition (an intravenous feeding tube)
  • Appetite-improving medications
