What may be garbage to you might be the needed calories and nutrition your dear friend needs to battle this disease. My wife struggled to maintain her weight during treatment because she knew if she lost too much weight, she would not have the energy to fight and tolerate the treatments. Regardless of how much she tried to maintain her weight, weight loss was inevitable with treatment. She lost about a 1-2 pounds a month for 10 months until she was skin and bones at 90 pounds on her 5'0 petite frame by the end of her treatment. When she was NED after 10 months and 19 sessions of treatment, she took a 2 month trip just to rest, recuperate and gain the weight back she had lost. She managed to gain 12 pounds during that trip and has gained a little bit more since stopping all treatment last year in June 2012. She has not made any changes to her diet, she eats and enjoys what she wants to eat and I'm not going to tell her what she can and can not eat.

For you to reprimand your friend is insulting. Maybe you would have a different attitude if you were the one with PC instead.
