A cancer killing meal plan

Growing evidence is reporting that cancer is a metabolic disease characterized by

cellular mitochondrial respiratory insufficiency. Cancer cells can only survive and
thrive off of glucose and amino acid fermentation. A ketogenic cleanse has been
proposed as a means of starving off cancer cell development. The ideal fuel source
for the ketogenic cleanse is extra-virgin coconut oil with its powerful immune
boosting properties.

Famous cell biologist Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells have altered
metabolism and are unable to produce energy through normal cellular respiration.
The Warburg effect is the observation that these cells drive all of their energy from
a process that depends upon sugar called glycolysis and they produce high levels of
lactic acid as a result.

Mitochondrial damage and genomic instability

The mitochondria can become damaged from exposure to environmental toxins,

various viruses and chronic inflammatory processes within the body. When this
happens, the mitochondria will often lose its ability to produce energy through
cellular respiration. The respiratory insufficiency leads to altered metabolic function
and the dependence upon glucose and amino acid fermentation to produce energy.
This process also results in genomic instability and mutant DNA formation.

Normal cells have relatively low rates of glycolysis and derive most of their energy
through aerobic metabolism of pyruvate in the mitochondria. Studies have
demonstrated that cancer cells have lost their ability to produce energy through the
process of aerobic metabolism even when oxygen is plentiful. These cells depend
upon rapid glycolytic processes for all their energy demands. Fast growing
metastatic cancers are seen to have glycolytic rates up to two hundred times higher
than normal tissues.

Cancer cells need sugar

Dr. Thomas Seyfried has expanded upon Warburg's theories to show that cancer
cells can produce energy through glucose and amino acid fermentation. In order to
drive enough sugar to run their metabolic systems the cancer cells upregulate
insulin receptors and contain ten times more than normal cells. This allows them to
gobble up glucose and other nutrients from the blood stream at an accelerated rate.

The metabolism of fatty acids results in ketones that normal cells can utilize but
cancer cells cannot. These ketone bodies provide a great anti-inflammatory fuel
source for the body that also starves the cancer cells from their nutrient demands.

Ketones fuel normal cells and starve cancer cells

Dr. Seyfried's research has shown that optimal blood sugar levels for cancer
starvation are between 55-65 mg/dl and ketone levels should get up over 3mM and
stay under 7mM. This is done through a process of fasting and fueling with healthy
fat sources without any carbohydrates for a period of three and up to ten days. Fast
growing metastatic cancer should go the full 10 days on the cleanse if possible.

Coconut oil contains a wide array of small and medium chain saturated fats that the
body metabolizes very easily for energy production. Coconut oil is also rich in the
immune boosting lauric acid which is converted in our body to monolaurin.

Monolaurin contains extraordinarily powerful anti-biotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal

properties. Unlike man-made anti-biotics and anti-virals these fatty acids pose no
danger within our bodies. This is especially helpful since individuals with cancer
have dysbiotic guts that are contributing to the chronic inflammation that may have
caused the genomic instability to begin with.

Coconut Oil Cleanse

Take 2 tbsp of coconut oil every 3 hours during the day (8-10 tablespoons daily)

Drink about a gallon of clean water with anti-oxidant extracts (fresh lemon,
turmeric, chlorophyll, apple cider vinegar, fermented herbal extracts, etc.)

Can fasting help to prevent cancer?

Creating a lifestyle around intermittent fasting is particularly effective at creating

ketones and starving cancer cells. Highly motivated individuals with advanced
cancer diagnosis may do a three to seven day cleanse where they consume nothing
but water with lemon.

Others may choose to incorporate a regular fasting lifestyle in which they only eat
for a 4-8 hour period each day. They may choose to eat only between the hours of
3pm and 7pm and do a 20-hour fast each day. This will force the body to make
ketones to fuel the brain and body deep into the fasting period.

Individuals with a cancer diagnosis should do the daily 20 hour fast while individuals
without a cancer diagnosis can do more of a 16 to 18 hour fast for optimal ketone

A cancer killing meal plan

Meals should be focused on good fats like coconut oil, avocados, olive oil and raw
nuts and seeds. Very low carbohydrate vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower,
brussel sprouts, asparagus, kale, collard greens, spinach, celery, cucumbers and
cabbage among others should be staple parts of the diet.

Clean proteins in moderation such as grass-fed beef, grass-fed raw cheese and
fermented dairy, organic poultry and wild game are great.
Fresh squeezed lemon-lime, apple cider vinegar and other low-sugar fermented
food-drink and fresh or dried herbs should be used in abundance. These help to
provide organic acids, enzymes and anti-oxidants into the body.

Organic acids produce an alkaline ash once metabolized. These alkaline elements
that neutralize the excess aciditiy produced by cancer cells and improve cellular
oxygenation which helps destroy cancer.

What is optimal hormone sensitivity?

This diet allows for optimal insulin and leptin sensitivity which leads the individual to
feel satisfied easily. A 150lb man should keep his carbohydrates around 50-60g/day
and his protein under 70 g/day for optimal ketosis. This is fairly easy when only 1-2
meals are eaten consisting of the foods listed above.

Optimal blood sugar levels for cancer starvation should be between 55-65 mg/dl
and ketone levels should stay around 4-7mM. The ketogenic diet is often deficient in
antioxidants so it is important to supplement with a whole-food based multi-
vitamin and probiotics.

High quality omega-3 supplementation is also extremely beneficial and synergizes

the anti-tumor effects of the ketogenic diet.
