Diet composition and weight loss: effect on long term prognosis in breast cancer survivors (2015)

Title:

Diet composition and weight loss: effect on long term prognosis in breast cancer survivors

Key words:

Research Institution:

Colorado State University

Location:

Researcher:

Henry Thompson

Project Description:

This study is based on the successful completion of the clinical phase of a 6-month weight loss intervention, referred to as CHOICE, in post-menopausal breast cancer survivors. This project will use the CHOICE menus and recipes, comparing a low fat/high carbohydrate diet to a high fat/low carbohydrate diet, to induce weight loss in a post-menopausal rat model of obesity and breast cancer, with cancer endpoints as the primary outcome. The investigators hypothesize that weight loss using these diets will improve breast cancer outcomes and the magnitude of benefit will be affected by dietary pattern.
