My mom has lymphoma and it was recommended to her to go very low-carb. Basically cancer sells need glucose to grow/survive, so cut off the glucose (sugar/carbs) and starve them out.... Just repeating what I heard - I'm no expert!!
Will it work? No idea - i hope so. She has been battling her cancer for 10 years and gone through many rounds of chemo, but it keeps coming back. Since finding out it is back again, they want to watch it before starting treatment. She has been VLC (less then 10g carbs) a day for past 3 months. She said she has never felt better in her life! She is basically on meat only diet. 2-weeks ago she went in for a physical and besides her cancer, her health is perfect. Never been better. Next month she goes back in to find out if cancer has grown, stayed same, or grown. i will try remember to update when she gets results.
