Find out about diet during and after treatment for bowel cancer


A healthy, balanced diet is important to
how you feel both physically and emotionally. Your balanced diet will be
individual to you, it will depend on your age, your body weight, your gender and how active you are. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with bowel cancer, or if you’re
having treatment for bowel cancer, speak to your health care team or dietician
for diet advice. The foods you can eat may vary during and after your cancer
treatment and you may find that you can’t eat the same foods as you did
before your bowel cancer. You may find it useful to do a food and symptom diary to
help you find out how different foods can affect you. We’ve included a food and
symptoms diary and more detailed information about diet in our booklet
‘Eating well: living with and beyond bowel cancer’. This you can download or order
for free from our website.
