Eating healthy during your breast cancer treatment journey doesn’t mean you have to restrict yourself from certain types of food/drinks.
It’s very important to follow a balanced, healthy diet that consists mainly of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, whole grains, olive oil, and protein
Now, how does a healthy, balanced diet help you during treatment?
- Keep body tissue healthy
- Lessen cancer symptoms and side effects of treatment
- Keep your immune system strong
- Maintain your strength and reduce fatigue
- Improve your quality of life
On the other hand, there are certain foods that you need to avoid if you are in the cancer journey. Some of the foods are: refined carbohydrates, sugars, alcohol, and processed meats. These types of food can cause the cancer cells to grow rapidly, affecting your body’s health.
