Since the science seems to really be in that eating low fat can dramatically reduce the risk of recurrence for Triple Negatives, lets start a list of easy, low fat meals. It seemed hard at first but gets easier. Lets share our easy meal ideas we've developed. We have to keep our fat calories to only 20% of our overall calories. Luckily, most packages actually give you these numbers.
Here's the description of the studies: www.lbbc.org/data/transcript-f... In a lower post is a better description of low fat and exercise studies.
Here's some more important info on the low fat and exercise studies. Aparently both are related to triple negative specifically!!!!!!!! Yipee!!!!!!!! If doing this cuts our risk of recurrance to almost half than isn't it like half of us get our own version of Temoxifin or Herceptin that actually works for us? That's amazing. Just eating low fat and exercising can be a cure for half of us that would have had recurrances?

Bernstein and her colleagues studied more than 100,000 women over a ten-year span as part of the California Teachers Study . The longer and more strenuously a woman exercised, the bigger the reduction in hormone-negative breast cancer risk, with moderate activity such as brisk walking at least 3.8 hours a week showing significant benefit. The greatest benefit came with more than five hours weekly of strenuous activity such as running.
Roughly 40 percent of the the WINS 2,500 participants followed a diet that kept fat at about 20 percent of their daily calories, an average of 33 grams; 60 percent followed a normal diet, with an average of 51 grams of fat. Cutting dietary fat reduced the risk of recurrence of hormone-receptor-negative by 42 percent after five years. The women, who were all postmenopausal, did not change their activity level; most lost weight"
There is a link to the WINS study several posts down.
ALL FAT IS BAD FAT. It is totally different from heart disease. We don't have to do it forever....I take it one year at a time. I think the first 5 years is critical.
Anyone else have some creative suggestions? I also have to limit salt dramatically because of lymphedema. Hey, maybe God gave me lymphedema so I couldn't eat good food because salt makes me swell...to force me to eat low fat, to save my life. Could be....
