Quick Recap on the Diet

Cancer DietHere’s the short version of what I was attempting to communicate in my last post. Remember, this was MY diet:

BREAKFAST most of the time.
o Boiled eggs.
o Nuts like cashews, almonds and dried banana chips, eaten straight out of each bag either individually or together. This is washed down with a smoothie, that I make with either milk or water, a handful of frozen fruits, a raw egg, a banana, squeeze of honey, a scoop of protein powder or something like Sustagen, a teaspoon of chia seeds, and a teaspoon of coconut oil.

REST OF THE DAY, including snacks, lunch and dinner.
o Eat plenty of fruit
– Make sure your choice of fruits includes a mixture of different colours, EVERYDAY.
– Eat a higher proportion of blueberries and blackberries, than the other fruits.
o Drink pure 100% Promegranate Juice.
o Drink water.
o Eat vegetables, include these colours daily, red, yellow, orange, green and purple.
– cans of whole baby beet roots are my favourite,
– cans of whole kernel corn was another favourite, no cooking involved, just scoop a spoonful regularly when you can during the day.
o Eat plenty of steamed fish, which is so easy with a steamer. Took me the best of 8 mins to steam a raw fillet of fish, and you can flavour it as you please with herbs, or just consume el naturale.
o a rice cooker is also a handy piece of apparatus for steamed rice.

Don’t forget to exercise within the range of moderate to hard core.

13 weeks …

The test results were fantastic, at least this is my personal assessment. The PSA results increased by a small amount and for those who do not know what PSA means … it’s the yard stick doctors use to determine how much cancer is floating in your blood stream. It’s like counting how many goals your favourite sports person has achieved. The number might be static in some weeks, while in other weeks it may increase. My cancer is like that, it will never go away, but it will rest abit and offer me some reprieve, and then it will rise again.

For the past 6 months, my PSA had been doubling, and at that rate it was projected to reach the heavens taking me along for the ride at the same time.

I’m of course ignoring the oncologists’ response at the time he delivered this information. He made a remark at how the figure was suspicious, and I’m not sure whether I was meant to hear that. I’m hoping he meant “goodness me, I didn’t expect this result and although it’s hard to believe, this young man is on his way to full recovery”.

And so, all in all, the results today tell me that I’m ok, and I should live life well for another 3 months before the next test. So lock up your daughters … I’m thinking I could go out and ‘partay’ tonight, …

… but I’m too tired.
