    I just started a ketogenic diet last week - I stumbled over this video and thought it would be a good one to post.

    When my David was dying from small cell lung cancer, a process that played out over 9 short months following his diagnosis, I came across the hypothesis of starving cancer with a ketogenic diet. Sadly, I was never able to enlist the patient's cooperation in following a very-low carb diet. I wonder to this day how a state of ketosis might have affected David's outcome.

    Hippocrates quote “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” is so foreign to us today. My father has Parkinson's and won't try anything natural. He just tells me the doctors know what they are doing and keeps getting worse and worse. I am preparing myself for him to go to a care facility within the next year or so. Sad....

    I have read a ton on the healing properties of food, figured I need to start following it and gave up carbs. Still feeling pretty crappy, but it should get better in a few more days. I am carrying too much weight and will be 50 in a couple years. It will just get harder to lose, gotta do it now.

    Maybe we should someday start a thread for low carb meals.

    EDIT: Here is tonight's dinner, steak and onions, super easy and fast.

    Cancer loves sugar, and starch is sugar to your body, hence low carb diets work. When you get a PET scan the make you fast, and then load you up with sugar just before putting you through the scanner. So a low carb diet just makes sense to me.

    If my memory serves me, I recall the Atkin's diet, near zero carb's, of the 70's would put you in a condition called "Ketosis".

    Right - to goal is to try and stay around 20gms of net carbs. Some folks can stay in ketosis up to 50gms, the trick is to find your limit.

    Yes, it does. But we need a strategy to force the patient to eat such meals. David wouldn't have any part of it.

    In 2012, I myself knew no one who was advocating an extremely low-carb diet as part of cancer therapy. It connected in my mind; and had it been me, I'd have tried it. But David was a free-spirit, and adult. He made a different choice. And, he's gone.

    Merlin, I'm really sorry you lost David. We can't always save the ones we love, and that is hard. Please don't blame yourself, as you said he made his choice. It hurts, I know.......

    It makes me even madder at TPTB in their suppression of this type information. They don't want us to cure ourselves, they want us sick and dependant on big medical and big pharma.
