9. Have Snacks at Hand

If eating requires a lot of effort, patients may not be willing to do so and may end up not eating enough. To avoid this, it’s important to keep some snacks close at hand that can be eaten whenever the patient feels like it. Cheese and crackers, muffins, peanut better, and fruit are some suggestions of easy to eat snacks.

10. Don’t Wait for Hunger

Loss of appetite may also mean that breast cancer patients do not feel hungry. Therefore, it is important that patients don’t wait until they are hungry to eat. Eating is an important part of the fight against breast cancer, and interiorizing this may help. Try to eat, even if it’s just small amounts, and schedule times of the day to eat regularly.

11. Add Protein Supplements

Adding a liquid protein supplement to the daily routine can help breast cancer patients who have difficulties in getting enough proteins. These supplements can be mixed into smoothies or juices, yoghurts, or soups. There are commercial products available, but patients should ask their physician or dietitian for a recommendation and other eating tips.
