Proper diet and nutrition is important to keep any person healthy, but for mesothelioma patients, it is paramount. That’s because mesothelioma treatments can be stressful on the body and spirit. Proper diet and nutrition gives the body a good foundation to build on.  
Nutrition and diet can play several important roles in mesothelioma treatment. Both cancer and cancer treatments can lead to malnutrition. Proper nutrition is necessary to support your overall health, your ability to tolerate cancer treatments, and to maintain the highest quality of life.

There is no single diet for people affected by cancer. All of it will depend upon you, the type and progression of your cancer, the treatment you are receiving, and what you wish to have to consume and acquire. 
In general, mesothelioma patients require more calories, need more protein and fat, and are advised to avoid fiber and other substances that can aggravate symptoms of mesothelioma and its treatments.
Each patient is unique. A nutritionist can help customize a diet that fits your needs and your needs may be different at different times. Scheduling an appointment with a nutritionist is a wonderful way to help you work out the best plan specifically for you.

If you want to lose weight, you may want to consider your vitamin B intake. Vitamin B and weight loss go hand in hand, but only when all forms of vitamin B are taken together. There are eight B-vitamins, which include thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folic acid or folate (B9), cyanocobalamin (B12). The B-group vitamins are found in many foods, they are water-soluble and delicate.
Extended cooking, food processing and alcohol can destroy or reduce the availability of many of these vitamins. Most of these vitamins can’t be stored (except B12 and B9, which are stored in the liver) by the body and have to be consumed regularly as part of a well-balanced, nutritious diet.  An obvious link exists between vitamin B and weight loss, but a number of myths about weight loss and the role which vitamin B plays also exist. Let's find out all the facts together and explain how vitamin B interacts with losing weight.

The vitamin B complex specifically helps with weight loss because it breaks down fats, proteins and carbohydrates by restoring a healthy digestion. A healthy digestion system rids your body of toxins that can slow down functions that could inhibit weight loss. All these B-vitamins keep your metabolism running (very important for weight loss) and ensure a healthy thyroid, so any deficiencies in these can affect thyroid function and consequently affect metabolism.  The combined action of these vitamins aids weight loss by allowing the body to properly metabolize and process the foods you eat. Many studies show how effective vitamins B are for weight loss so eat your vitamins through natural sources.
