    I wish there was some magical special way of melting off the extra poundage. It still remains your body has to use up the stored fuel it has packed on. Cut back on carbs, and long walks. A good way to eat is to consume foods that are closest to the way they grew. Cut out all sugar, fructose, even artificial sweeteners. You can get a copy by googling Mediterranean Diet, if you need something with a name. We women continually look for the magic bullet, and it all boils down to revving up your metabolism and consuming less carbohydrates, boring and difficult. Take care, Sharon

      You aren't alone....we ALL pack it on from the steroids, lack of activity from exhaustion and our metabolism's being turned upside down. The entire menu of cancer just plain sucks. We are all in this together. Hang in there, Sharon

      Try the pink ribbon diet it is med based. More fruits and Vegas wole grains and nuts less sugar . Cravings will go away in about 2 weeks. Ex cerise too it helps.

    Eat right and exercise just like any other time in your life. The water weight from the steroids will come off after you stop taking them.

    Eat mostly vegetarian and cut dairy after noon. Clearly no soda No " diet" anything. Eat the real stuff whatever it is. Stop eating after 7 pm. The usual stuff works for us too Walk to sweat or dance to sweat. Cardio

    What Andre said. There is only one way to healthily lose weight and keep it off - eat right, move more.

    Water weight -- take Tumeric for at least a month and see if you notice a difference. I did this pre chemo
