Oh great.
Another Dr Oz promoted diet.

Yikes. Enough said.

I do hope you can take the advise of your doctors, and eat what you should, regardless of recommendations from Dr Oz or anyone else on television or the Internet.

I am certainly not qualified but I was under the impression that flax seed can actually HELP people with breast cancers and prostate cancers.

If you haven't already, I would be inclined to ask your oncologist or Dietitian specifically about flax-seed, because it would be a shame if you enjoy it, that you don't have it IF you are in fact medically able to eat it.

Good luck, and I hope that your Breast Cancer is well behind you now!
Take care,

Not sure what you mean by The Plan and The Book??? Are you talking about the Spark Cookbook?

Did your oncologist or oncology dietitian tell you to avoid flax seed?

I'm getting ready to start The Plan in a few days. I read the book & made my grocery list. However, because I've had breast cancer, I cannot have anything estrogenic. Flax is! So, has anyone else had this problem? What did you substitute?

Thank you!!
