Diet according to Dr. Coy is a unique dietary treatment approach that specifically intervenes in the altered, TKTL1-controlled cancer metabolism. The aim of this special diet is to reactivate the “normal” energy metabolism in order to restore the sensitivity of resistant cancer cells to standard therapies such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy and thus support their treatment success.
Please note: It is important to me to emphasize that my nutrition concept does not replace the current therapies, but merely supports them and makes them more effective and more tolerable. Nutrition plays an enormous role in the prevention, treatment and relapse prophylaxis of cancer. Nevertheless, there is so far no scientific evidence that specific nutritional factors or a particular diet as the sole treatment method could cure cancer.
The nutritional approach is fundamentally based on 5 elements: a general carbohydrate reduction of the diet combined with various active substances that in studies inhibited the TKTL1-controlled cancer metabolism or activated the “normal” energy metabolism. The interaction of these 5 elements forces TKTL1-positive, resistant cancer cells to switch off the metabolism responsible for the resistance and to reactivate the “normal metabolism”.

Nutrition according to Dr. Coy in practice
The bestselling book: The anti-cancer diet
In 2009 Gräfe und Unzer-Verlag published my first book “Die neue Anti-Krebs Ernährung – Wie Sie das Krebs-Gen stop” (“The new anti-cancer diet – how to stop the cancer gene”), which quickly reached bestseller status and has since been translated into numerous other languages. This gives a detailed insight into the scientific background of the special nutrition concept, explains in detail what has to be considered when putting it into practice and supports the introduction with many tips and tasty recipes.
Due to the large popularity of the book in the following years still two further books appeared to the nutrition according to Dr. Coy.
