Obese breast cancer patients have about a 30% higher risk of death compared to those who maintain a healthy weight.

Research suggests that exercise during and after treatment improves outcomes, but it is uncertain if dietary modifications, including a low-fat diet and increased fruit and vegetable consumption, have a similar effect.  One large randomized controlled trial reported increased disease-free survival after an average of 5 years in patients with breast cancer randomly assigned to a low-fat diet.  However, another trial found no effect from a low-fat, high-vegetable/fruit diet on breast cancer prognosis.  The American Cancer Society recommends that breast cancer patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight through exercise and a diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fat.  In addition, regular physical activity should be maintained regardless of weight concerns.
