Good nutrition improves well-being

Cancer changes your nutritional needs and often the way your body processes food. Eating well during, and after cancer treatment can help you feel better, maintain your strength, avoid treatment delays, and speed your recovery.

Talk to a registered dietitian about nutrition and cancer and receive reliable nutrition advice and resources.

By speaking to a registered dietitian, you can learn

  • Strategies to improve nutrition and side effects
  • Tips for meal planning and grocery shopping
  • How to care for a loved one during cancer treatment
  • Answers to your nutrition questions
  • Questions to ask your healthcare team
  • Additional nutrition resources online and in your area

What to expect from a nutrition consultation

At a scheduled date and time, the dietitian will call you at the phone number you provide. Have a pen and paper ready to take notes. First, the dietitian will ask you questions about your current food habits. The dietitian will then offer personalized strategies and tips to improve your nutrition and answer your nutrition questions. Consults last about 30 minutes. You can also communicate with the dietitian via email.
