This book is a comprehensive summary of everything you need to know about diet and nutrition after a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Feeling unsure about what to eat after a diagnosis of breast cancer is a source of stress for many women. There is a lot of information available on nutrition and cancer, but little for women already diagnosed with breast cancer. There is even less information available, that is written by a qualified expert in nutrition, who is also a breast cancer survivor.
Dr Susan Hart has summarized all the facts and fads about breast cancer in one easy to read resource. It not only provides up to date nutrition information in plain English, but also provides practical ideas that can be used when purchasing, preparing, and eating food. It will help you to feel confident when making nutrition-related decisions, using the acronym BABE.
Healthy Living after Breast Cancer: The BABE Method summarizes healthy eating recommendations for women with breast cancer. It represents the specific factors that stand out as being the most important in reducing the risk of breast cancer recurrence:
• B for body weight - aim to be at your healthiest weight.
• A for alcohol - limit or avoid alcohol.
• B for bones - prioritize calcium, and vitamin D for healthy bones, as bone health can suffer from breast cancer treatments.
• E for exercise - exercise reduces the risk of recurrence.
Read on and start enjoying food again, confident that you can make choices that are good for your health too.
