    Sorry...that sent too early! The morning of my chemo, I ate something, like an English muffin and an egg. While getting started I had some milk to get some protein in case I wouldnt want it later. Bland foods that day and a few days after we're all I could tolerate. Watermelon and grapes were my savior and kept my hydrated when I was t drinking fluids. Which I was all the time. Be hydrated before during and after, so your body can flush out the toxins as fast as possible. Eat what you want before, but try to keep your nora

    Ugh, I hate that the "done" button is so close to be space bar on my phone! Sorry! Last try: eat well and healthy before because during and after you might crave unhealthy things and you'll have to have them!!! Best of luck and kick butt!!

    Also Rebecca Katz has this great broth that will help when all you can do is drink fluids but you still need nutrients. http://rebeccakatz.com/recipes/magic_mineral_broth.html. I also look at this site for some dietary insight. http://foodforbreastcancer.com/supplements.php. I eat lots of protein in the morning and afternoon since chemo will wipe out your WBC and Rbcells and the amino acids in protein will help rebuild those. Hydrate like crazy and eat what you crave so you don't loose weight, but be careful not to put weight on. Best of luck to you! You can beat this!
