First, I love all of your ideas re: nutrition, etc. Prior to chemo, I had a pretty clean diet...now with chemo, I haven't been doing as well. I think that I had read in some of these posts that actually your diet shouldn't be as healthy when going through chemo, helps the chemo work better. (???)Since my time and energy is limited, I haven't really researched it all that well. Interestingly enough I am a nurse who specializes in disease management and wellness. It is extremely frustrating how uninformed the medical world is regarding proper nutrition and wellness. So many of my coworkers have made snide comments about me reading labels and trying to avoid artifical sweetners, high fructose corn syrup, etc., of course, I am the one now diagnosed with BC..go figure. Keep up the great work gals! I love reading your posts and find them very encouraging!
