Returning to SparkPeople after a 2-yr hiatus. Recently I was diagnosed with cancer. I've undergone surgery and am half way through my chemo treatments.
My interest is in revamping an otherwise inconsistent diet with foods that I can adopt while going through chemo, and then post-chemo once my body starts going back to normal. I try to stay within my caloric window, but am also looking to lose weight.
Since late August's surgery, and a powerport implant, my cardio has consisted mainly of swimming. I look forward to those days I can swim, but generally I'm feeling indifferent regarding activity when the steroids from the infusions are present in my body. Makes for crappy days.
I've looked for diet pointers (talking to a nutritionist tomorrow), but I'd like to see what other folks who have/had cancer used that works for them.
I'm an optimist through and through ;)
To those fighting the good fight, I salute your perseverance!
