So glad I found this thread, thanks to all who have contributed! I'm a type 2 diabetic with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and vulvar VIN III (squamous cell carcinoma in situ).

I'm 74, and have gained about 12 pounds in the last 6 weeks or so without diet change. I've been experimenting with keto for about 3 weeks.

All I've lost is 2 lbs, but my postprandial BGs have dropped from the high 190s to the 120s, which is great, and I'm hoping it is "starving" the cancer/precancer cells.

I started wondering about higher protein, lower fat, recalling the days of Dr. Stillman's Quick Weight Loss Diet. In my research I came across Naiman and Kendall, and am very intrigued, especially about the better weight loss.

The big question is, Will it help stop the cancer from becoming invasive? The research so far is sketchy but I feel it's worth trying.

Welcome to the semi low-carb forum!I started LC after reading the cancer chapter in Gary Taubes' book, Good Calories, Bad Calories. After cancer treatment in 2006, and four + years of a grain-based "anti-cancer"diet, I had gained 50-60 pounds. Since then I closely follow the cancer and diet research, but donít make claims it will stop invasive cells nor will work for all types. Though it is hard to go wrong by eating more nutrient-dense foods, while eliminating sugar and processed hyper palatable junk food.

The links and comments after my success story on this forum have more information on how I have changed my diet and lost weight while making it more nutritious. Also do an advanced search for cancer here, you will find other threads that may help. I like Dr Colin Champ's basic guides and videos for eating well to prevent cancer. https://colinchamp.com/the-mediterr...enic-lifestyle/

Thanks for the welcome/links/info, much appreciated! I've periodically spent a few years very low vat, nearly vegan. The science, especially described the The China Study was very persuasive, and the low-fat veggie cancer info seemed to be, too. And I do believe it can work for some people.

Apparently, you and I don't seem to be among them. Congratulations on finding what works for you, I hope I'm as successful!

Crossing fingers that this works (it works for me) Ö someone posted a thread reader app which cobbles together the 14 part!! Ted's Twitter thread about satiation versus satiety, and how the PE Diet can support both. Plus I would add nutrient density helps, but protein + fiber were a huge first step for me. Lowering fat (e.g. the LC favorites of nuts, cheese, bacon, pork rinds) but keeping enough fats for satiety all explained here in short captions.
