Introduction: Compared with White breast cancer survivors, African American survivors are more likely to be overweight and obese. Differences in weight status may be attributed to differences in dietary intake; however, there is limited research pertaining to the dietary habits of African American breast cancer survivors. Methods: We compared baseline dietary intakes of 31 overweight and obese African American breast cancer survivors enrolled in a healthy lifestyle intervention to national dietary guidelines and also examined beverage intake habits. Dietary intake was assessed using the National Cancer Institute's Diet History Questionnaire and beverage intake was assessed using 3-day food intake records. Results: Overall, the majority of survivors consumed the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables Few women met the guidelines for whole grain and fiber intake 6. Future dietary interventions in African American breast cancer survivors should focus on reducing intake from dietary fat and added sugar, as well as increasing whole grain consumption as a means for increasing daily fiber intake.
In addition to our internal dress code, we invited members of our temporary team to wear pink for the day and providing we received photographic evidence, SteppingStones have made a donation per individual. This contribution has now been handed over to the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens and we hope it will go some way to making a difference in the ongoing research and battle to fight this life changing disease. From all of us at SteppingStones a huge thank you must go to our temporary team for entering into the spirit of the day, and of course to the Lions Club for their tireless support of the charity.
