Will do.  I have an appt with the Mayo Nutritionist on March 25th.  Oncologist said 150 minutes minimum of vigorous exercise a week.  Heart rate up and a sweat...  will let you what im Nutritionist says but Onc said its like Mediterrean with some tweaks...

Yep, that's what my oncologist told me as well. Regular exercise vigorous enough to increase heart rate and a Mediterranean type diet. My nutritionist said low fat and plant based. She didn't say to eliminate any particular foods. I've read online that certain foods are associated with an increased risk of tnbc but there's a lot of conflicting information. My nutritionist said there not enough research yet to validate some of the claims but a low-fat plant based diet has the most valid research behind it at preventing breast cancers. Please let us know your nutritionist says!

Thank you! I recently read an article that stated weight gain and menopause together drive tnbc. Given that my treatment threw me into menopause and caused me to put on 15 pounds I'm working on taking that weight off.
