How are you today?
Having a balanced diet when undergoing breast cancer treatment is very important. An adequate diet can not only increase the effectiveness of the treatment, but can also reduces its side effects by allowing the patient a better quality of life.
Have you changed your eating habits since diagnosis or treatment? Has your doctor recommended a special diet for breast cancer?

@Courtney_J When I was in treatment I really didn't have the energy to pursue any particular diet. I just tried my best to eat fruits and vegetables. I remember hearing something about the Gerson diet at the time, but I'm not sure what it entails. I imagine that eating things that give you energy would help, since chemo is so draining. But when I was in chemo I was so nauseous that I didn't want to eat anything. Has anyone tried the Gerson diet?
