Why Talking to Your Nutritionist Matters

Treatment takes a huge toll on your body, impacting everything from your appetite to your energy levels. There is a lot of contradictory information out there and it can be overwhelming: it's fine to eat sugar, don't eat sugar, starve the cancer, don't lose too much weight. Many cancer centers offer a consultation with a dietician or nutritionist that can offer you practical advice to help manage your side effects and fuel your body. By working with a nutritionist, you can develop a personalized plan to support your health and well-being every step of the way.

Whether you're dealing with side effects like nausea, fatigue, or changes in taste, your nutritionist can offer practical strategies and tips to help you manage your symptoms and nourish your body.

But it's not just about managing side effects—it's also about optimizing your overall health and quality of life. Your nutritionist can help you make informed choices about what to eat and drink to support your immune system, boost your energy, and promote healing.

So, if you haven't already, I encourage you to reach out to your healthcare team and ask to speak with a nutritionist or dietitian. Trust me, it's a conversation worth having—one that could make all the difference in your day to day life.
