How to Promote Weight Gain W/ Liver Cancer
Hi Ted, Can you please tell me how to help my dad (in late stage cancer) to try to gain weight? His appetite is OK still but he lost a lot of weight because of the cancer.
The doctor told my dad he can eat anything he wants (pastries, meat, foods with sugar etc as the doctor says there is no way to help my dad and that he will die from the liver cancer so it makes no difference his diet now) but I worry that this is not great advice if one needs to stay away from sugar, etc. We are giving him the Budwig diet (cottage cheese and flax oil and flax seeds) as well as buckwheat, brown rice, very little chicken (no other meat), gouda cheese (a little) and various vegetables (including some carrot juice).
Thank you again for your input!
