Kancer Keto™ Ketogenic Diet for Cancer

Unlock the Maximum Potential of Your Ketogenic Diet for Cancer

Kancer Keto is developed and written by Keith Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, Retired Pharmacist, Author

In the journey of cancer management and prevention, your food, lifestyle, and supplements play a pivotal role. The ketogenic diet, known for its moderate protein, low carbohydrate, and higher fat content, has emerged as a beacon of hope. The Kancer Keto Program is beyond a traditional ketogenic diet for cancer: it's about a lifestyle that could hinder cancer's fuel sources.

The Science Behind Ketogenic Diet and Cancer

Cancer cells thrive on glucose.[i] By significantly reducing glucose intake, a ketogenic diet can potentially slow down the growth of cancer cells.[ii] A ketogenic diet's restriction of carbohydrates limits glucose metabolism, essentially starving cancer cells while nourishing healthy cells. 

This traditional ketogenic diet for cancer approach, however, comes with its concerns.

Many people eat more animal meat than necessary thinking they should do so to be keto. Animal protein is often cooked at high temperatures, which may lead to increased formation and consumption of harmful compounds like heterocyclic and polycyclic amines.[iii] [iv] These factors can contribute to inflammation, damaged mitochondria, DNA and cells, and gut dysbiosis, affecting your body's overall health and potentially fostering conditions conducive to cancer initiation and growth.[v]

The Power of Plant-Priority Proteins

Transitioning the focus towards plant-priority proteins can mitigate these risks. Plant-priority proteins in a ketogenic diet offer an effective double-edged sword against cancer. They reduce the risk of inflammation and cancer-promoting factors but also introduce a wealth of nutrients and anti-cancer compounds into your diet. Consuming frequent legumes is associated with a significantly reduced risk of cancer and a significantly reduced risk of dying from cancer.[vi]

 My downloadable Kancer Keto Guide elaborates on incorporating appropriate quantities of plant-priority proteins effectively, ensuring you reap the benefits without compromising anticancer ketogenic principles.

Low Carbohydrate Vegetables and Fruits: Your Allies in Cancer Prevention

Vegetables and fruits that are low in carbohydrates yet rich in nutrients and fiber play a crucial role in a cancer-preventative and treatment diet. They offer essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants without disrupting the ketogenic balance. These foods support your body's natural defenses against cancer, promoting overall health and well-being. My Kancer Keto guide and course delve into which vegetables and fruits to prioritize, optimizing your diet for health and longevity.

Harnessing Plant-Priority Fats: A Kancer Keto Strategy in Cancer Management

Incorporating plant fats into your diet offers a multitude of benefits, especially when considering the metabolism of cancer cells. Unlike saturated fats predominantly found in animal products, plant-priority fats such as those from avocados, nuts, seeds, avocado oil, and olive oil, provide essential fatty acids that support overall health without promoting cancer growth.[vii] These healthy fats are a cornerstone of the Kancer Keto diet for cancer management, as they help to maintain ketosis – the burning of ketone bodies (fats) for energy.

Moreover, plant fats are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, further protecting the body's cells and DNA from damage and reducing the risk of cancer development.[viii] By focusing on plant fats, you can enjoy the benefits of a ketogenic diet, while supporting your body's natural defense systems against cancer. This approach is thoroughly explored in my Kancer Keto Guide, offering a comprehensive strategy for those looking to harness the power of their diet in the fight against cancer.
