If your diet is free of heavily processed foods, including processed meats, then meat in moderation doesn't have to be a bad thing. I opted to radically change my diet since I believe my body to have been damaged through decades of eating junk food including hot dogs, lunch meats and bacon (and other horrors I won't mention here).
Another radical change is that I try to avoid processed sugars as much as possible, including white flour which turns to glucose almost immediately inside your system. That means avoiding most white breads. Needless to say, I haven't had a cheeseburger deluxe with a large coke at a diner in a long time and some nights I dream about
The theory is that the glucose stimulates insulin levels which feeds the cancer. Also large amounts of processed sugar is bad for you on many levels, not just cancer.
Between the changes in my meat eating and the changes in my intake of sugars, I lost 70 pounds in about
six months just by eliminating junk. I feel and look better than I have in years.
Another bottom line is that your immune system gets stronger if you eat better and a stronger immune system is always good.
