1st survive!: Ask that doctor for an opinion on the time and perhaps on the type of diet. That way they are more responsible for the impact it might have on your disease. Surviving the cancer is the 1st goal. Your achieving healthy weight is also important, but 2nd. Being "hot" is 3rd. I hope achieve it!
