Ravasco P – Nutritional interventions only given during radiotherapy consisted of three randomization arms: (i) individualized nutritional counselling; (ii) ad–libitum diet plus high–protein supplements; and (iii) ad–libitum diet. Nutritional interventions 1 and 2 positively influenced outcomes during radiotherapy; however, 3 months after its completion, individualized nutritional counselling was the single method capable of sustaining a significant impact on patients' outcomes. The early provision of the appropriate mixture of foods and textures using regular foods may modulate outcomes in patients with cancer.
