Healthy Choices
While undergoing cancer treatment trying to keep a healthy diet can be a great
benefit. Although it may not be an easy goal when dealing with nausea, maintaining
a healthy weight and eating the right foods will help you counter act some side
effects of treatment. A healthy diet should include plenty of whole grains, protein,
fresh fruits and vegetables. You should try to avoid fried foods or anything that
is high in fat and sugar. When possible include some form of exercise into your
daily routine and try to eliminate unhealthy habits such as smoking and alcohol

Maintaining a healthy life style during cancer treatment can help reduce side
effects such as:

  • Fatigue

  • Vomiting

  • Nausea

  • Stress

  • Anxiety
