Each person has unique nutritional needs depending on their nutritional status, cancer diagnosis, and cancer treatment. Working with an oncology registered dietitian, a nutrition plan that is specific to your needs can be developed. Searching the internet or taking nutritional advice from non-professionals, can lead you down a path that is not appropriate for your needs.

Backed by Evidence

Good nutrition during cancer treatment is just as important as the cancer treatment itself. The nutritional goals during cancer treatment are to maintain or achieve a healthy weight, to prevent or improve nutritional status if undernourished, to maintain lean muscle mass, and to provide optimal quality of life. According to the American Cancer Society, “studies confirm the benefit of dietary counseling during cancer treatment for improving outcomes, such as fewer treatment-related symptoms, improved quality of life, and improved dietary intake.”
