Living with cancer

Diet and nutrition

People sometimes need to adjust what they are eating because of their cancer and their treatment. Some people also find that eating a healthy diet can help you deal with your cancer and make you feel better.

Your doctors and nurses may be able to arrange for you to see a dietician to give you advice. The dietician may also have information sheets and booklets to help you. You can find out more about overcoming eating problems related to particular cancers and treatment by visiting our Cancer types section. 

If you have been affected by cancer in some way and would like to talk to someone about what you have read or need help finding information - you are welcome to drop into any Maggie’s Centre or to visit Maggie’s Online Centre and talk with a cancer support specialist.
