So, about that comment (thank you for posting that!) regarding the Restricted Ketogenic Diet. You are correct that 500-600 calories is the restricted calories for humans when compared to mice in RKD research. Also, the 500-600 calories are great to get into the therapeutic ranges of ketones and glucose for those who can not manage the water only fast for 48-72 hours. As for the caloric restrictions after reaching the therapuetic ranges, according to professor Thomas Seyfried's book, Cancer as a Metabolic Disease, usually a 20% decrease of caloric intake will suffice to stop tumor growth. (I mean - come on - who can live on 600 calories for life? Not this girl.) To keep in the therapeutic ranges you have to check your blood glucose levels (Ideally 55-65), and blood ketone levels (Ideally 4-7). By watching those levels you will learn what you can eat or not eat, and how much - or how often. It has even helped me adjust my supplements (no more melatonin for me - it causes a massive spike in my morning fasting blood glucose level).
I hope I don't get in trouble for posting these scanned pages from my book, but I feel it necessary. professor Seyfriend's book is priced over $100. I feel strongly that cancer patients should get a discount. I mean, come on, the book is a textbook for students. Anyone with cancer that is researching and trying to save their life, or the life of a loved one, shouldn't have to pay the full retail price, you know there's a wholesale price. Textbooks are such a racket anyway. Just my opinion.
The first page is about the 500-600 calorie issue. Please forgive my unprofessional scanning job, and less than easy to read posting of the images.You might want to use the zoom and print the pages out in order to read them. In fact, please print them because I may get asked to take them down. You might need to select a section directly off of the blog post - not from clicking the images - and print the selection, and in the properties before you hit okay, mess with the zoom. Each computer is different. I still think you should pay the money to buy the book. We can't wait for discounts, or freebees. We just don't have time.
