I found your gem of a book was the perfect bridge of support after finishing my cancer treatments. -- Lee Raven, RN, Cancer Survivor, Guided Imagery For Health & Wholeness, Berkeley, CA<br /><br />Thanks again for your book! I keep finding more and more helpful information as I read it over and over. --Janet Barker Alleman, Cancer Survivor, Kankakee, Illinois

From the Publisher

The first three editions of this booklet sold out very quickly. The most recent 4th edition has new information and is larger with print which is much easier to read. People from 47 states and 6 foreign countries have already ordered this popular booklet. It is common for a reader to order one copy and then soon order several more to give to friends, relatives, and members of support groups. Additionally, many health care professionals of various specialties who work extensively with cancer patients have ordered this booklet in bulk to give to their patients.

WOW!! This impressive book is for the person who desires to "optimize" their own health. Diana, a Registered Dietitian, and survivor of THREE episodes of cancer herself, discusses the on-going and evolving state of nutrition research and how she uses that information to determine her own "optimal diet" to treat/prevent cancer recurrence. She discloses how she has implemented good nutrition and complementary therapies into her everyday life. She shares her own recipes, serving sizes, sample menus, tips for eating 9+ servings of fruits and vegetables, recipe book sources, her own personal grocery list, dining-out tips, and newsletter, book & internet resource listings. Don't pass up this great help-yourself book!

This would be a very helpful book for anyone who wants to improve her or his nutrition, regardless of whether they have cancer or not. The author starts out by teaching the reader how to have a well balanced diet - information everyone needs to know. One of the things I like best about the book is that she acknowledges that research on nutrition and cancer is incomplete, but then goes on to discuss how to include foods that have been shown to be possibly helpful in preventing cancer. The book is packed with useful information and helpful hints to make the dietary changes easier and more enjoyable. Reviewed by Patricia J.

Diana's perspective is truly unique, as she is someone who is not only a health professional but also has firsthand experience with both traditional and complementary approaches to cancer treatment. Her book is packed with not only Diana's personal story but also informative, useful advice for reducing cancer risk and for treatment......I found this book to be both engaging and inspirational. This book would be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in cancer prevention or treatment and recovery.

When I started reading A Dietitian's Cancer Story, I found it so interesting, well written, and practical that I could not stop until I had finished. Then I thought, what a wonderful information resource from which many people around the world could benefit. It has been a pleasure for me to translate A Dietitian's Cancer Story into Spanish (Historia De Cancer De Una Dietista) which is also now available on Amazon.com. I admire Diana Dyer as a nutrition professional and also as a patient who has gone through a lot to be where she is now: helping many people. The field of cancer and nutrition has been enriched with the book A Dietitian's Cancer Story.

As a dietitian and psychotherapist in private practice myself, my speciality is weight control, trauma and eating disorders. So when a friend of my dad's, and later my dad, were diagnosed with cancer (he survived throat cancer), I sent them copies of Diana's book, because that's her specialty. Plus I have a book for myself so that I can help my dad and other clients more. It's a great book with helpful information and healing recipes. He survived and is doing well. Thanks, Diana!

This book is wonderful. If you have received that dreaded diagnosis, your doctor is not going to give you as much advice as Diana Dyer does. This book tells you how to improve your diet to maximize your chance of surviving. If you are still healthy, try to stay that way by following her guidelines. I was struck by how far ahead of her time Diana Dyer was. She was making changes (some controversial) way before the research showed she was doing the right thing.

Bought book new however, first published many years ago and felt much of information had changed even though there had been updates, I was not comfortable with the recommendations. Cancer treatment has changed dramatically in the past years and felt information was out dated.

This was a great help for me as I went through breast cancer in 2005. Reading Diana's experience gave me faith in in gaining a full recovery of which I have. Being raised by a "health nut" dad (as his friends called him) made me realize my body needed all the help it could get in dealing with the dreaded cancer.

I think I was directed to this book back in 2005 by my oncologist's nurse who met Diana a lectures at Loyola in Maywood, IL. I again looked for this book to help close friend who just recently was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I wanted her to have the support of Diana's cancer diet.

Since that recent purchase of Diana's book my own sister has been diagnoised with breast cancer surprisingly the same breast affected as was mine. I will now purchase a few more copies one for my sister, her daughter, myself for future friends needs, and for a friend who looking over my copy was so impressed he requested one for himself.

A great thanks to Diana for sharing her personal and professional knowledge for others experiencing this dreaded disease. Her diet is a sensible one to continue following for anyone wanting a healthy body.
