The book is divided into three: a detailed section by Dr Clare Shaw on diet and cancer and the problems you may face during treatment (such as loss of appetite, nausea, sore mouth, change of taste); recipes to cook during treatment, which are nutritionally beneficial and wholesome enough to keep you strong even if you can't eat too much; and a section of recipes for after treatment aimed at keeping you healthy. These recipes are designed to serve smaller portions and two people as well as families, and there are lots of tips about budgeting, leftovers and freezing. Dr Shaw wants to emphasise that you don't have to cook 'special', separate meals for one, the rest of the family can eat in the same way, saving on time and stress as well as encouraging a healthier diet for all.

When authors Fran Warde and Catherine Zabilowicz met at the Maggie’s centre at Charing Cross Hospital in London, they quickly discovered they shared a passion for good food and healthy eating. They also realized that with their combined knowledge and experience – Fran as an acclaimed food writer, and Catherine as an experienced nutritional therapist working at Maggie’s – they could provide invaluable guidance for anyone living with cancer, their families and friends. The Living Well With Cancer Cookbook, published in support of the Maggie’s charity, is the result of Fran and Catherine’s collaboration. Aimed at helping readers through each stage of their journey – diagnosis, during and after treatment – this essential guide is packed with advice on nutrition and health and offers a range of delicious recipes. There are healthy twists on classic favourites and tempting new treats to try, with every ingredient considered for its health benefits. Positive and empowering, the book contains a wealth of information on the best food choices to make, and reveals why many scientists today believe that certain foods and a balanced diet are crucial in sustaining strength throughout treatment. Taking a holistic approach, this book also seeks to alleviate anxieties, such as those concerning weight-loss, loss of appetite and the changes in how food tastes. Above all, the simple, comforting recipes will help both experienced cooks and novices to create nutritious, easily adapted meals – from breakfast right through to dinner – each one designed to nourish and sustain.

Zest for Life, the first anti-cancer health book with recipes based on the traditional Mediterranean diet (new international edition), provides all the guidance and practical advice you need to prepare delicious, easy and affordable meals to boost your defenses against cancer. Without prevention, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the industrialized world will develop cancer. What many people don't know: at least a third of cancers could be avoided through a healthy diet and lifestyle. Zest for Life does *not* propose a short-term "diet" of hunger, deprivation or imbalanced eating. On the contrary, it shows how easy it is to enjoy a wide variety of tasty, healthy foods every day and in doing so to reduce not only our cancer risk, but also the risk of heart disease, obesity or diabetes. The Zest for Life diet emphasizes vegetables and fruits, fish, olive oil, legumes, fresh herbs and spices, and highlights the importance of conviviality and the guilt-free enjoyment of food, thus nourishing both body and soul. The healthy, modern recipes are inspired by rich culinary traditions from around the Mediterranean: Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Morocco and others. Zest for Life comprises a 120-page science section outlining the principles of anti-cancer eating based on the latest scientific research, followed by 150 easy, family-friendly recipes (using US and UK measurements). Most of the recipes are plant-based, although healthy fish and meat dishes feature too, as do low-sugar, gluten-free cakes and other desserts. Author Conner Middelmann-Whitney, nutritionist, health writer, chef and mother-of-three, overcame early-stage cervical cancer 11 years ago. Pragmatic, not preachy, she shares her personal cancer story in an engaging style and suggests simple, tasty ways in which anti-cancer eating can fit into busy schedules and tight budgets.

Foods That Fight Cancer was originally published in 2005 and sold over 200,000 copies in Quebec alone. It was translated into 25 languages, and sold an additional 450,000 copies worldwide. A decade has passed during which an enormous amount of conclusive scientific evidence has shown how some foods contain cancer-fighting elements. In fact, approximately one third of all cancers are directly related to diet. Every week there is a news story about a food that prevents cancer -- and it often contradicts last week's news. Foods That Fight Cancer cuts through the noise. It explains the science behind each food recommendation and its statistical potential for disease prevention. It itemizes which foods are the most effective against specific cancers and explains how they work. By understanding the science behind the therapeutic benefits of these foods, we come to realize why it is so critical -- and easy -- to bolster our body's defenses against cancer just by adding cancer-fighting foods to our diet. Here are examples of cancer-preventing foods: Curcumin may have the greatest positive impact in preventing colon cancer. Add one teaspoon of turmeric to soups, salad dressings, or pasta dishes every day. Freshly crushed garlic is by far the best source of anti-cancer compounds. Supplements have little or no effect in the fight against cancer. Fresh food is the only weapon. Nothing can guarantee a cancer-free future but we can improve the odds by a great margin. Foods That Fight Cancer is a powerful tool in that battle.

Most health experts agree that the UK is facing a huge increase in the number of people with diabetes. Since 1996 the number of people diagnosed has increased from 1.4 million to 2.8 million. By 2025 it is estimated that over four million people will have diabetes. Most of these cases will be Type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes and happily this form of diabetes is controlled by diet and exercise. So understanding nutrition and diet is essential to maintaining your health as a non-insulin dependent diabetes sufferer. However because of our aging population and rapidly rising numbers of overweight and obese people many diabetics today are either living alone or are a couple. So preparing meals using regular diabetic cookbooks which cater for four or more people can provide meals that are too big and wasteful. Diabetic Cooking for One and Two solves the problem by offering a collection of easy, tempting recipes in smaller portions. Based on the very latest research it gives nutritional guidelines, a menu planner, advice on how to shop and plan your meals, over 100 recipes all with nutritional analyses catering for contemporary culinary tastes, consisting of meals with a high intake of vegetables, pulses, fruit and whole grains. Michelle Berriedale-Johnson is an expert on food allergies and intolerances. She has spent all her career in the food business, first as a caterer then as a journalist and food writer. She became interested in special diets over 20 years ago when her son was diagnosed as being dairy intolerant. She set up a food company, Berrydales, specializing in additive free, dairy free, gluten free and egg free foods and a quarterly magazine, The Inside Story, about dietary problems. In 2000 The Inside Story, was renamed Foods Matter, and became a subscription magazine supporting anyone with a food allergy, food intolerance or living on a free-from diet. Foods Matter has now become an online magazine and portal www.foodsmatter.com.
