BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Pink Ribbon Diet: A Revolutionary New Weight Loss Plan to Lower Your Breast Cancer Risk is a book that allows you to lower your chances of getting breast cancer through the foods you eat. The Pink Ribbon Diet is written by Dr. Mary Flynn and Nancy Verde Barr. This diet is a great way to be proactive where your health is concerned and is applicable to anyone that wants to avoid breast cancer. Dr. Flynn has actually done the research which was funded by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. She researched the effects of an olive oil and plant based diet on overweight women who have previously had treatment for invasive breast cancer. This book contains the findings from that research.

The Pink Ribbon Diet offers an eating program that is more satisfying than the low-fat diet that is recommended by the National Cancer Institute, and it’s easy to stick with. The higher your body fat level, the higher your chances for getting breast cancer. This plan is designed to help you lose weight or stay healthy if you are already at a safe body fat level. This book is not just for women since men can be diagnosed with breast cancer as well. The first part of the book details the specifics of the diet while the second part of the book gives you 150 different recipes. The recipes in this book include breakfasts, side dishes, main dishes, soups, sandwiches and salads, seafood, poultry, pasta and desserts.

The amount of time you exercise should be at least 30 minutes with a goal of one hour.
