Health Tip: Eat Healthy After Radiation Therapy
It's important to eat, even if you aren't hungry

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- A potential side effect of radiation therapy is loss of appetite. But experts say it's important to continue to eat nutritious meals during treatment.

The Cleveland Clinic suggests:

  • Doing light exercise to help boost your appetite.
  • Eating frequent and small meals, including foods that are easy to prepare and high in calories and protein.
  • Avoiding drinks that aren't very nutritious.
  • Making meals fun by including favorite foods and using bright, colorful dishes.
  • Enjoying some company while you eat, by going to a restaurant or having a dinner guest.
  • Eating a variety of healthy foods, including nutritious additions, such as parsley or colorful bell peppers.
