Food For Benign Tumors?
, I have a benign tumor, my family said to avoid meat, one of which is chicken, and now I want to diet (a kind of fasting) from 8 pm to 2 pm, is that good for people with tumors or vice versa?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Is the "benign tumor" that you are referring to a doctor? In which part of the body is the tumor located?
Consumed food is one of the important things to consider when you are said to have a tumor. So that the health of the body is maintained, it takes the intake of calories and nutrients from eating. Tumors often make patients less likely to eat and also risk causing the intake of nutrients that can be absorbed by the body to decrease. Basically, there are no drastic changes that need to be made in tumor patients. Fasting with a schedule as you planned is also not necessary because there is no scientific research that proves its benefits.
There are several tips for preparing healthy, delicious, and easily prepared foods for tumor patients, including:
Foods that are rich in protein and healthy calories, for example: fish, chicken, egg whites, milk, cheese, yogurt, beans, and lean meat (lean meat)
Vegetables (including dark green vegetables) and fruit (rich in vitamin C such as oranges)
Adequate fluid intake every day; the main choice is in the form of water, can also be equipped with fresh fruit juice to increase fluid and vitamin intake
Sources of complex carbohydrates, for example: whole wheat bread
Meanwhile, there are also things related to food that need to be avoided by tumor patients, including:
Excessively fried foods, baked or grilled because of high heat exposure can produce carcinogenic by-products (tend to be at risk of causing cancer)
Excessive intake of salt, sugar and oily foods
Red meat and processed food, for example: sausages
Preservative food, for example: canned food
