During cancer treatment

Control your nutrition

to help you stay strong

What you eat affects how your body responds to

treatment. A healthy diet will help your body stay

stronger. Eating right can help you get the strength

you need.

It’s hard to eat right when you’re tired or don’t feel

well. Try the simple tips below.

Tips to get the nutrition you need

1. Eat something, even if you don’t feel like it

• Eat 5 or 6 small meals during the day

• Eat a bigger meal earlier in the day

• Eat a bedtime snack

2. Have food ready

• When you cook, prepare and freeze

extra servings

• Carry high-calorie snacks like dried fruits

and nuts

• Keep hard-boiled eggs on hand

3. Make every bite count

• Add nonfat dry milk powder to casseroles,

mashed potatoes, soups, and hot cereals

• Drink fruit juice, milk shakes, or milk

Help keep your muscles

strong during your cancer

treatment

When you’re sick, your body needs extra nutrition

as fuel. If you don’t have enough fuel, your body

might break down the protein in your muscles to

use as fuel. That can make you feel weaker. So,

you need extra nutrition now to provide fuel for

your body and to help keep your muscles strong.

Exercise your muscles

Regular exercise can also help maintain good

muscle health. Here are a few examples of how

you can continue to keep your muscles active and

your energy level high.

Flexibility and Strength Exercises:

1. Stretch your legs, arms, back and chest at least

2-3 times each day

2. Used canned goods or detergent bottles for arm

curls – do 3 sets of 5 reps

3. Stationary squats or lunges will strengthen your

leg muscles – hold onto a chair for extra support

4. Lean your back against a wall and slide down to

a seated position – try and hold that position for

20 seconds

5. Gradually increase your intensity level over

time – if you feel too tired or sore then slow down

to a comfortable level

Daily Activity Exercises:

• Gardening • Washing the car

• House cleaning • Shopping

• Walking • Bicycling

• Dancing • Yoga

Please consult with your doctor before any

exercise regimen that you begin.

juven ®

has key nutrients to

support building tissue

If your body needs to use protein for energy, it can

lose muscle. Loss of muscle and other tissue

makes it harder for you to heal after injury, surgery,

or a wound. Juven is a powdered drink mix that has

Revigor (source of HMB) and 2 other ingredients.

All 3 work together to support tissue building after

surgery or radiation.

• Revigor produces new tissue by slowing muscle

breakdown and enhancing protein synthesis

• Arginine is a building block for proteins that are

used in building tissue

• Glutamine helps cells make the building blocks

needed for new tissue

Juven supports tissue building when your body

needs it most. Tissue building can begin in as little

as 2 weeks.*

Juven—

if you need to build new

tissue. New tissue helps

repair skin after an injury,

surgery, or wound

Two servings per day are recommended.

Add Juven to your diet to start rebuilding

tissue. Juven is not complete nutrition.

If you’re not eating enough, consider using

Ensure, Glucerna, or Ensure Enlive!

Use under medical supervision and as part of

a complete, balanced diet.
