Benefits of Eating Healthy

Getting good nutrition is essential as your body undergoes the rigors of treatment and exerts a lot of energy into healing and recovery. Taking steps to have a healthy diet will help you to have fuel and power to keep up your strength. Other benefits of eating healthy include:
  • Maintaining your weight
  • Preserving your body’s store of nutrients
  • Better tolerating the side effects of treatment
  • Helping with faster healing and recovery
  • Lowering risk of infection
  • Preventing or controlling health problems (heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, etc.)
  • Helping you feel your best

Steps towards eating well can be discussed with your health care team. They can help guide you toward a diet tailored to your situation.  There may be some food restrictions based on your diagnosis or treatment, and there may be some side effects from treatment that may prompt further changes in your diet.  However, all of these are manageable and can be incorporated into a nutrition plan made specifically for you.  The important step is to empower yourself and take initiative in learning about ways to eat well for your health and wellbeing.
