Healthy Eating and Breast Cancer

Posted on March 25, 2018

Healthy eating can be difficult after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. While there is no specific diet for those with breast cancer, there are some foods that can help boost your immune system, like a wide variety of colorful fruits and vegetables and reducing your intake of processed or high-fat foods. Changing your diet can be challenging to undertake. Finding the motivation to eat right when you have breast cancer is best done alongside others with who understand what you are going through.

On MyBCTeam, the social network and online support group for women facing breast cancer, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Healthy eating is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about healthy eating:

What can I eat during chemo? What can't I eat?

Does anyone have any good resources or guidelines on dietary recommendations for women who have had breast cancer?

Everything still tastes like cardboard. Is there anything I can do to make my taste buds come back?

Here are some conversations about healthy eating:

Who needs pills when you can juice?

The chemo nurses told me not to eat my favorite foods...chemo does terrible things to your taste buds.

Every week she is down 3-4 pounds...We saw a nutritionist who only offered vitamins. Anyone else going through this?

Eating meals and protein drinks but still losing weight.

I feel better than I did before BC. I’m eating clean, cut out sugar, detoxing and exercising a lot.

Can you relate?
