March is National Nutrition Month and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has created a Web-based video series that explores how diet can help support health and wellbeing during and after cancer treatment.
Eating Well During Cancer features Dana-Farber nutrition specialist Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN, who hosts this six episode series. Topics include managing chemo-related side effects through diet, good foods to eat and foods to avoid during treatment, strategies for maintaining a healthy weight, and why getting vitamins and nutrients from food is generally better than from supplements.
"We know that eating well can be a challenge during cancer treatment," says Kennedy, "but it's so important and can have a very strong impact on everything, from helping to increase your energy level, to supporting your immune system, and managing side effects from treatment."
The series also features tips for meal planning, recipes with video demonstrations, and answers to questions posed to Dana-Farber nutritionists by patients during and after their cancer treatment.
