Hi friends, just creating this topic with the following information from UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine:

 

https://osher.ucsf.edu/patient-care/integrative-medicine-resources/cancer-and-nutrition/faq/low-carbohydrate-diet

Should I restrict my carbohydrate intake to help my body fight cancer?

:

:

Ketosis can be achieved by maintaining a carbohydrate intake at 50 grams or less for most people.

There is some interesting research looking into other ways to achieve this.

Fasting can produce ketosis, and intermittent fasting may be a way to obtain the benefits of ketosis without having to follow a strict ketogenic diet every day.

Restricting calories to less than 1,000 calories per day (daily or intermittently) has also shown some potential benefit for fighting cancer; however, this approach may also lead to malnutrition for some people.

:

Advanced or Metastatic Cancer
In the treatment of metastatic advanced cancers, a ketogenic diet has shown promise in mice models for reducing tumor growth and spread while prolonging survival (36, 37).

In a human study of 10 patients, those with the highest degree of ketosis showed disease stabilization or partial remission, with no adverse effects (38)

Thanks.

Hi friends, just adding the following information to this topic:

Consideration of Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy as a Complementary or Alternative Approach for Managing Breast Cancer

11 March 2020

:

:

Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy (KMT) is emerging as an effective complementary or alternative therapeutic strategy for managing a broad range of malignant cancers including breast cancer.

:

:

Hence, KMT can,

(a), target the multiple drivers of rapid tumor growth,

(b), facilitate drug delivery to the tumor tissue,

(c), work synergistically with glutamine-targeting drugs, and,

(d), enhance the metabolic efficiency in normal healthy cells.

To our knowledge, there are currently no cancer therapies that can target these multiple drivers of tumor growth while simultaneously protecting normal cells.

:

:

The aim of our review is to illustrate that the restriction of glucose and glutamine together with elevation of non-fermentable ketone bodies offers a complementary or alternative therapeutic strategy to the SOC for the non-toxic management of breast cancer.

It is our view that KMT could improve progression-free and overall survival for most breast cancer patients.

 

Thanks.

Hi friends, also adding the following information here:

 

https://www.bc.edu/bc-web/bcnews/science-tech-and-health/biology-and-genetics/targeting-cancer.html

Researchers have paired a specialized diet and a tumor-fighting drug and found the non-toxic combination helps to destroy the two major cells found in an aggressive form of brain cancer, the team reports in:

Therapeutic benefit of combining calorie-restricted ketogenic diet and glutamine targeting in late-stage experimental glioblastoma

29 May 2019

 

The international team combined a calorie-restricted diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates with a tumor-inhibiting antibiotic and found the combination destroys cancer stem cells and mesenchymal cells, the two major cells found in glioblastoma, a fast-moving brain cancer that resists traditional treatment protocols.

 

Thanks.

This is really interesting as it goes against everything I’ve been researching (I have TNBC mets) I’ve been mostly plant based and avoiding animal products especially beef and dairy as it promotes growth of cancer cells mostly doesn’t have the right balance of omega 3 and 6 unless it’s grass reared and organic. 

Maybe it good for certain cancers?

@kimster interesting so it’s not a true Keto I have done that before and it’s crazy hard to eat even low carb veg in great amounts and stay below 20 max 30 for what is considered true Keto. I guess people who have dairy or eggs may manage it. 
maybe something to consider if the plant based doesn’t work out.

 

thanks

Hi Kimster,

I see you found Tom Seyfried too.  Have you been following his protocol and how has it been working out?  I just started.  Right now I am in ketosis and been taking FenBen and EGCG green tea but I don't know what my blood glucose levels are yet or if I am anywhere near a 1 G/K ratio.
