A healthy diet is vital to maintain a good baseline of health and wellbeing during cancer treatment and afterwards. Emerging evidence suggests that diet and weight management as well as regular physical activity are linked to better survival rates, diminished cancer recurrence for those in remission and even disease prevention.

For some people diet can be a touchy subject – everyone has an opinion and there’s a great deal of information and misinformation circulating about what foods should be eaten and those which should be avoided. An accredited dietitian can help you make informed decisions about your diet and suggest strategies for managing symptoms and treatment side effects such as changes to appetite, nutrient malabsorption and taste perversion.

The Lifehouse LivingRoom offers nutrition consultations and group sessions to all patients who have been diagnosed with cancer as well as those who have been through cancer and want to improve their lifestyle.
