What to Eat After You've Been Diagnosed with Cancer

Your Cancer Nutritionist: Support through diagnosis, treatment & recovery

Get support and guidance in cancer nutrition to reduce overwhelm and be clear on your nutritional priorities during an online or phone clinic consultation.

Thank you so much for your time. This is just so helpful and you explained things very clearly so that I really feel as though I have turned a corner with a lot of the issues I've been worrying about.

My promise to you...

One of the most empowering things you can do following a cancer diagnosis is to manage your health by taking back control of your diet with a cancer nutrition plan. 

With so much conflicting information out there combined with your unique circumstances, it can be difficult knowing where to turn or what you should be doing.

As an experienced cancer nutritionist, I don’t do strict cancer diets with foods you don’t like – just realistic nutrition plans that work for you. I won’t give you one-size- fits-all recommendations. All my advice is bespoke to your specific needs.

You don’t have to feel lost or alone in this. Getting support is the first step to taking back control. I also recognise that cancer doesn’t define who you are. You are not a patient, a victim or a sufferer. You are the same person you were before.


My job is to help you remember that. 

I look forward to helping you feel better.

The Cancer Dietitian

I’m Meredy. I have been a cancer dietitian and nutritionist for nearly 25 years. When you are diagnosed with cancer, undergoing treatment, or in recovery, you may feel like control of your life has been taken away. You may feel confused, scared, anxious, low, angry or just plain exhausted.


Taking back control and doing something positive helps alleviate many of these feelings. And that is where I come in. I help you take control of your diet to make you feel better, both physically and emotionally.
