Eating Well, Staying Well, During and After Cancer
By Bloch, Abby

Make food an ally in the fight against cancer

Eating well is especially important when you have cancer. Eating well during and after cancer can help you feel better, keep up strength and energy, maintain your weight and your body's stores of nutrients, tolerate treatment-related side effects, decrease risk of infection, and heal and recover quickly.

In Eating Well, Staying Well During and After Cancer, the experts at the American Cancer Society explore what to eat and what to avoid in order to stay strong and maximize the benefits of treatment. You will learn about:

  • Potential effects of supplements, vitamins and minerals, and herbs
  • Coping with digestion- and eating-related treatment side effects, such as sore mouth, nausea, and weight gain or loss
  • "Special" diets, including those promoted as cures for cancer
  • Easy, healthy, delicious recipes
  • Practical tips for food safety, stocking the pantry, grocery shopping, and dining out
