Hi again Charlene, I just spent 3 hours researching several sites about maitaining weight and rebuilding weight. Basically everything I mentioned in the last post is pretty much right on. That includes my peanut butter , and egg theory, Excercise, Muscle toning and massage,Chemo treatment is side effects we all know of. anxiety/depression and environmental conditions that cause it. So I'd suggest everything I mentioned in previous post. Just start searching cancer nutrition or weight control and you'll see High protien ,fatty food, dairy products... How I love my homemade banans splits and loaded pizzas and pasta of all types. I reviewed over 16 different sites and come up with the same. Taking a break from chemo is a excellent Idea. I mentioned that in another post that sometimes I feel doctors push to much to fast and we abide with decsion because of fear. Primarily worry of growth of tumors. I keep going back to my first oncologist of which I took his advice . If it is going to work now it will work then and by then there may be something that works better. Thats why as soonas I know within 3-4 treatments it is not doing any good I move on and try something else. I've had some good responses some pretty bad responses and still looking for the even better. You know a thought just run through my head that lost of some weight is actually healthy if you know what I mean (for some not all) If I did a body /fat measurement according to my hieght, I would probally be right on the reccommended healthy wieght. I know we are all different with different circumstance , I'm just a caring guy who wants to throw out whatever could possibally work for some one and improve their well-being.
God Bless You Guys
