In brief: Anti-cancer diet
As with any cancer, it is preferable to obtain most of you nutrition from whole (unprocessed, organic) foods, low in 'bad' fats and 'simple' carbohydrates.
Maintaining your weight is an important during cancer treatment, particularly with stomach cancer. A referral to a dietician or nutritionist who specializes in cancer nutrition is recommended. (www.Integrativeoncology-essentials.Com).

In brief: A healthy one
A post treatment diet for stomach cancer has to factor in the fact that patients have often undergone a partial or total stomach removal.
The diet should be of small portions with more fruits, veggies and grain but less red meats or fats. Processed or smoked foods need to be avoided as should be alcohol. Supplementation with vitamins and iron is often necessary.
