THE BREAKTHROUGH DIET FOR BREAST CANCER - There is a hidden link between weight gain and breast cancer: The more body fat you have, the greater your risk. With the delicious Mediterranean diet at its core, Mary Flynn and Nancy Verde Barr's "The Pink Ribbon Diet" can help you shed pounds while safeguarding your health----even if you have struggled with your weight for years. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. "The Pink Ribbon Diet" is a revolutionary diet and cookbook for any woman who has been treated for the disease, is at risk, or simply wants to optimize her health. In a study published in the "Journal of Women's Health", Flynn presented the effects of her olive-oil-and-plant-based diet on overweight women who had previously undergone treatment for invasive breast cancer. Not only is this program more promising than the conventional, recommended low-fat diet, but it is also an eating plan that women find more satisfying and can sustain for life. * Easy, satisfying recipes for weight loss - from breakfast to dinner and dessert * Powerful nutrients and cancer-fighting foods * The surprising health benefits of extra virgin olive oil * Convenient and flexible daily meal plans * Inspiring stories from breast cancer survivors who have embraced this life-changing diet.
