Prostate Cancer Nutrition: A Summary

It's important for men with prostate cancer to take care of themselves. Taking care of yourself includes eating well and staying as active as possible.
 
You need the right amount of calories to maintain a good weight. You also need enough protein to keep up your strength. Proper nutrition may help you feel better and have more energy. Your doctor, dietitian, or other healthcare provider can suggest a healthy diet.
 
Many men find they feel better when they stay active. Walking, yoga, swimming, and other exercise can keep you strong and increase your energy. Exercise may reduce pain and make treatment easier to handle. It also can help relieve stress.
 
Whatever physical activity you choose, be sure to talk to your doctor before you start. Also, if your activity causes you pain or other problems, be sure to let your doctor know.
