    Exercise and good eating habits. I get myself motivated by knowing that exercise and a good weight are the best defense for the keeping the cancer from coming back.

    There are two diets. American cancer puts one out Pink ribbon puts one out too. The second is a book available at b&n and has recipes and promotes olive oil. It talks about weight control

      So that I know what I am looking for, do the titles reflect that they are specifically for patients on hormone suppression ?
