Breast cancer assaults women on so many fronts. As fear, stress and feelings of being overwhelmed wreak havoc on the mind; chemo, surgery and weight gain wreak havoc on the body.
The women who come through this type of cancer, have trouble feeling confident in their own skin both during treatment and after treatment. They have fought an incredibly difficult battle that has left them feeling a little less like themselves.
Many women experience significant weight gain during and after treatment for hormone driven breast cancer, some gaining as much as 25 pounds during treatment. This can have negative implications during recovery from cancer, including:
- increased risk of breast cancer mortality
- less favorable lymph node status and/or lymphedema
- increased risk of heart disease and diabetes
But, with a solid nutrition plan and effective exercise program, breast cancer patients and survivors can lose weight, get fit and feel stronger and more energized through their treatment and after treatment.
Because there are some things to consider during and after cancer treatment that may not be a part of normal weight loss programs, Maple Tree has designed a program tailored to those who have fought or are fighting breast cancer.
The Breast Cancer Weight Loss Program will be a 4 week online program. Participants will receive:
- A 4 week workout plan that can be done at the gym or at home
- Nutritional guidelines that not only maximize weight loss, but optimize hormone output
- A supportive community that understands your struggles and encourages you to keep pushing through
Weight loss during or after breast cancer doesn’t have to be as difficult or complicated as you might think. With a solid combination of nutrition and exercise, you can reach your weight loss goal, and improve your rate of recovery and overall quality of life.
Our program makes this process as simple as possible so that you can live life and not stress about what you eat! We are committed to helping you live your life in a truly healthy, confident way.
The cost of this 4 week program is only $40 because we want to make it doable for any woman going through breast cancer treatment or coming out of it. This program is designed by our certified trainers and dieticians to ensure that you lose the weight in a healthy, sustainable way.
We would love to have you for our next round that begins March 1.
You’ve got a ton of fight in you, lady. Let’s work together to lose weight so you’ve got the best chance of beating cancer for good, and the most confidence possible as you go out and live your life to the fullest!
