I was on Fox 19 earlier with my buddy Kara Sewell talking about foods to include in your diet during treatment and recovery. The foods are great for anyone trying to “manage their waist”.
Start your day with whole oats and eggs. Oats are high in soluble fiber, which reduces appetite. Eggs are an eggscellent source of protein, which regulates blood sugar and satiety.
Add avocado to your sandwich or salad. The MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids) reduce appetite and this type of fat is also heart healthy. Include high protein or Greek-style yogurt for probiotics and protein. Probiotics are important during cancer treatment to recolonize your gut and strengthen immunity. Protein in yogurt has been found to improve satiety.
Finally, eats beans or lentils at least 3 times/week. They’re a source of both fiber and protein and keep calories in check because they’re fat free. Season with garlic, onions, ginger, tomatoes, peppers or a variety of spices.
