My dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer a few weeks ago. He has a Gleason score of 7 (4+3), and will be attending for his PSA test results mid-December.
At this point, we're in the early stages of his diagnosis and we don't know what we will be doing in terms of treatment (if any) until we visit with the doctor and get his PSA test results in December.
Upon hearing of his diagnosis, I did some research and found that diet can seemingly affect Prostate Cancer, PSA scores, etc., and help manage it, prevent it, etc.
We therefore decided to change my dad's diet and now he has more of a strict eating regimen. We've cut out red meat, dairy, any saturated fats, sugars, etc., and he's now eating more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean chicken/turkey, green tea, water, etc. My dad has always eaten pretty healthy, due to my mom's influence (and mine), but now he's eating cleaner and much more healthy.
The things is, he's becoming frustrated over this diet and wants to eat things like lean red meat, hamburgers, ribs, etc.
My questions therefore are:
- Do you find a change in diet helps (that's if you've been diagnosed with prostate cancer)?
- If so, what do you eat?
- Do any of you eat lean (organic) red meat?
- Any suggestions on tasty meals?
Any advice is appreciated.
Thank you! 😃
