Actress cancer and poor nutrition

Tina, 52

Actress, overthinks too often
Rediscovered her Taste for Life

The diagnosis cancer changes everything

Being diagnosed with cancer is deeply shocking news. It is clear to everyone that, if we were in that situation, we would scarcely be able to think clearly or take in important information. There is hardly any time to really understand the diagnosis before treatment starts.

But it is exactly when we are in this situation, that we need to find out everything about our health status so that we understand vital information properly. A diet suited to our specific needs, which forms a sound basis for the impending cancer treatments, is one of these aspects.

Nutrition, your secret weapon for the fight ahead

Realise what lies ahead of you and don’t lose courage. Maintaining weight and a good nutritional status can help to better endure the necessary medical treatments during cancer therapy.

Tina’s story

Tina is 52 years old. She loves her job as a stage actress portraying different characters, even though it is quite stressful. Having a big family also gives and demands strength. To regain energy, Tina joined the walking club.


After she was diagnosed with cancer, Tina had to change her daily routine. She could no longer do what she loves because she experienced various side effects from the chemotherapy, including nausea and fatigue. She also noticed unintentional weight loss, due to her decreased appetite and reduced portion sizes. Tina’s regular diet was therefore insufficient to meet her increased needs for energy and nutrients.
