I agree with cbsmith and hiker. My diet was already pretty healthy before being diagnosed but I went overboard at times afterwards (it was a control thing with me). Getting through this is hard, really hard, mentally and physically. It’s one thing to make general changes like limiting red meat, eating organic or incorporating more fruits and vegetables, but only to the extent he can tolerate it without it affecting his head. Moderation is the key. As a caregiver, you want to do everything - I get it and we patients appreciate our caregivers more than we could possibly express (I’ve spent 2 years trying). But mental health is a big part of getting through this. Better to make incremental changes than drastic ones. This is not a criticism - what you’ve done is very loving and truly commendable - it’s just a different perspective from
a patient, and suggestion to take it a little slower, that’s all.
Check and see if your cancer center has an oncology dietician. That would be the best person to help you with foods to avoid for particular drugs. I recall that mine told me not to drink green tea during one of my chemo cocktails.
