Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
In a study funded by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) Foundation, Dr. Mary Flynn researched the effects of an olive-oil-and-plant-based diet on overweight women who had previously undergone treatment for invasive breast cancer. Now, she reveals her findings in "The Pink Ribbon Diet." Not only is this program more effective than the National Cancer Institute's recommended low-fat diet, but it is also a diet that women find more satisfying and can thereby sustain for life.

"The Pink Ribbon Diet" features 150 recipes that naturally emphasize Mediterranean foods with nutrients thought to lower breast-cancer risk and foods that improve biomarkers, indicators of risk. This diet has been effective in helping women who have had breast cancer and those at risk of getting it to avoid unhealthy weight gain and safeguard their health.

Review by Library Journal (2010-09-01)

Perhaps most diets are based on fads and fears in equal measure, making dieters desperate to pursue them and then easily disappointed at the "not typical" results. A research dietitian and an assistant professor at Brown Medical School, Flynn conducted a study of breast cancer patients and food patterns, sponsored by Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. Her findings are at the heart of her olive oil-based Mediterranean diet, which leads to positive measures of blood lipids, blood sugar, and insulin-all markers for breast cancer. A reasonable plan, even if you just want to maintain a healthy weight.
