On a more personal note, my father went through chemo and radiation and I have seen first hand how difficult it is for the patient and the caregiver to manage eating and maintaining nutrition while undergoing such a harsh treatment which takes away any natural want/yearn for food. I searched many resources at that time to attempt to help him, but nothing I found was organized in such a useful fashion as this cookbook.Read more ›
It took about 7 days of these meals to curb the weight loss and after another 10 days she has regained 2 pounds putting her back at 120 pounds.
She loves the recipes and eats small meal portions 4-5 times a day as the book suggests.
They do have hyperlinks in the table of contents (ToC) but that is about it.
The premise of this book is that it is organized by the side effect you are trying to counteract. Each recipe applies to more than one side effect. Each side effect is designated by a color circle. In theory, each recipe has color dots to quickly show which side effects it applies to--except that the dots aren't there--at least they are not on the actual recipe pages. They are only on a chart in the front of the book AND the darn chart doesn't have hyperlinks so once you find something of interest on the chart, you can't even click on any link! You have to write it down and then go find it in the ToC. I would consider this an extremely significant flaw.
I actually have to go through and manually bookmark each recipe as they only bookmarked the ToC. Manual Bookmarking straight off is important as this appears to be the only way to jump from the reference chart in the front straight to a recipe without going back to the ToC and searching for the hyperlink in the table of contents.
Oh yes, one more thing... There's no bookmark for the index and the index isn't hyperlinked either!
I thought I'd add a little follow-up now that I am 1 month out of radiation 3 months past my last chemo dose. The above review was written before my first chemo session as I was prepping to fight the good fight.
I actually did go through my copy of the e-book and manually bookmark everything.
For this book and others like it, you see the excited "this is great" reviews and the big thumbs down "too much sugar" reviews.Read more ›
