BfedBwell cancer survivorship nutrition program: proof-of-concept pilot study
The primary objective of the BfedBwell proof-of-concept pilot study is to assess the feasibility and acceptability of integrating the BfedBwell nutrition program into the 12-week BfitBwell cancer exercise program. We also aim to explore the effects of the BfedBwell + BfitBwell programs on adherence to cancer survivorship guidelines.
Cancer survivors who have completed active treatment within the last five years and who have BMI 25-45 kg/m2 will take part in a 12-week study of the BfedBwell survivorship nutrition program.
BfedBwell includes group nutrition education and discussion, skills development sessions and cooking demonstrations, and 1:1 counseling with a dietitian. They will also take part in the BfitBwell cancer exercise program.
