Exclamation The Breast Cancer Diet (with checklist)

http://www.prevention.com/article/0,...-270-1,00.html

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0410084755.htm

http://www.her2support.org/vbulletin...hlight=Sichuan

I TRIED to do an attachment, but was unsuccessfull...sorry.

Breast Cancer Diet

[][](P[])([][][]) whole grain foods (brown rice, bulgur, wheat berries, whole grain bagels, breads, cereals, crackers, tortillas, pasta)

[]([]) beans (chickpeas)

[][][][][][](P[][][]) fruits and vegetables

*Cruciferous veggies (broccoli, broccoli sprouts, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower)[]

*Lycopene-rich produce (tomatoes, red grapefruit, watermelon, guava)[]

*Beta-carotene-rich produce (winter squash, carrots, sweet potatoes)P[]


*Citrus fruit (oranges (juice), grapefruit)P[]

*Berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries)P[]

*Dark green, leafy veggies (spinach, romaine, kale, collards, Swiss chard)[]

P[]([]) low-fat dairy products (1%, organic dairy products)

P[]([]) soy products (tofu, soy milk)

P[]([]) tablespoons of ground flaxseed

[][][][]([][]) cups a day of green tea (hot or iced)

[] 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

M[]W[](F[]) fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, white tuna, sardines, herring) very lean red meat, size of a deck of playing cards)

M[]W[]F[] handful of nuts (Hazel nuts, also called Filberts, Almond slices)

M[]shiitake mushrooms

M[]fresh or water-packed artichokes

Garlic, herbs, spices- used liberally (Sichuan Pepper, Oregano, Turmeric)

M[]T[]W[]Th[]F[](Sa[]Su[])walk

EXTRAS: AM Detox, Desitin, Magnesium, Concord Grape Juice, A (10,000 IU) & D (400 IU), Extra D (400IU) during daylight savings, CoQ-10 (200mg), ([][] black tea)

I just check it off as I eat it, a lot easier than other food diaries. The P means that if you do the shake you can check it off. The boxes in parentheses mean that those are BEYOND the minimum serving.

Thank you for that simple checklist that I could print out. I need to keep things simple. MMMmmm Artichokes. I didn't know they were good for anything except taste. I still feel nervous about soy, since I understand it has estrogen properties. But so do chick peas, and I eat a lot of hummus. I asked my oncologist about chick peas and he said to eat hummus if I want, but everything in moderation. I am giving my vegetable garden beds a rest this year, but my brother tells me that planting beans will enrich the soil instead of taking away nutrients. So I plan to eat a lot of green beans this summer.

This is great as a reference! Thanks.

I have been advised by my onc, my nutritionist, and the staff at the Young Breast Cancer Survivor's Programs at MDAnderson to stay away from supplementing my diet with Flax and Soy while in chemo.

And I found this answer to the question (especially in conjunction with Tamoxifen) at this website, as well as on other websites:
http://www.bccancer.bc.ca/RS/Communi...cists/faqs.htm

Q.
A few of my patients have asked me about flaxseed to prevent hot flushes while they are on tamoxifen. Should I recommend it?
A.
Flaxseed has multiple mechanisms of action, and may act as a phytoestrogen. It may antagonize tamoxifen or even stimulate breast cancer growth. Explain to your patients that this is a controversial area, with limited and conflicting evidence for both efficacy and safety. Because the safety is unknown, the current BC Cancer Agency recommendation is cautious. We advise against the use of any phytoestrogen supplements during chemotherapy or radiation treatments. This recommendation applies to flaxseed, as well as other supplements such as black cohosh, dong quai, evening primrose, red clover, soy and others.

Just FYI, but I have chosen to defer to the advice I have been given.

Here is Rhondah's post.

The link seems to work OK.

I am afraid that whilst there is some emerging consensus in odd corners of the benefits of diet, which and what diet are much debated and so the only solution is to read as widely as time permits etc. You do not need to understand all the technical stuff to start with ( I still don't) just skim through and get the drift. You can always print bits out and ask you advisor.

Please discuss any dietary changes with your advisor and even more so whilst in treatment.

That sounds like what I eat just about all of the time! I guess I have been more on target than I realized. I stay pretty well away from most sugar...
except for dark chocolate about 3 x a week. I use stevia instead to sweeten cereal, tea, etc...

Hi Rhonda,

I was reading through the links you posted. I was very interested in the one about olive oil. Do you take olive oil just on it's own? Just take a teaspoonful like I take my fish oil? Or how? Also, the Olive Oil I have - (extra virgin) I keep in my pantry. It doesn't need to be refrigerated, does it?

Thanks for your help.

YEP...first thing in the morning I drink a TBS (just like medicine), but I also cook with it (when baking I use canola oil) and use it for my salad dressing. I've read different opinions as to refrigerate or not, I keep mine next to my stove.

Dear all,
I don't want to spoil the fun, here, but I'm living proof that this diet doesn't guarantee anything.
Because of my severe food allergies, I can only eat the products on this list. No wheat, but brown rice, no nuts, no tuna, but everything else on the list I eat in copious quantities. I got Breastcancer anyway. I can't eat beef or pork, no coffee, tea, wine, sugar, beer, etc. A really healthy diet.

So don't blame yourself when you have a recurrance after you didn't stick to the above diet. I certainly helps to eat healthy, but I don't think it's as simple as that. If it were, I'd be very, very safe now.

Love
Jacqueline

Hi Jacqueline,

I appreciate your post and understand how frustrating it must be to have done "all the right things" and still get breast cancer. It can happen - does happen - and none of us are to blame for the disease that we got. That being said, I think it's important to do everything we can to keep our bodies healthy. I don't think anyone here believes that a recurrence isn't possible BUT when studies do show benefits of doing certain things than it's definitely something we should be doing. It just makes sense to treat our bodies the way they were meant to be treated. It could only make our bodies healthier and stronger and that is always a good thing. No matter what. Along with that - I think living life with a positive, encouraging spirit to all we meet is also beneficial. We were put on this earth for a reason and encouraging and loving one another makes this life a special palce to be. I love life. Even having had breast cancer and all that went with that. It's taught me much and made me a better person.

Love your "sister" on this journey.

Mary Jo

I was told at a breast cancer meeting that you shouldn't cook with Olive Oil. When it becomes hot it is carcinogen. The gal was a nutritionist from Mt. Zion Cancer Center. (Rachel Ray cooks with it all the time) Anyone else ever heard of this.
