- Question from SharonA: Hi. I have been spending hours shopping looking for soy-free and hormone-free products to eat over the holidays, at parties and restaurants. Am I really at a big risk for recurrence if I don't pay attention to this during the holidays? Thank you.
- Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. I think here's a time when it is OK to say all things in moderation. Be more concerned with getting a wide variety of foods. Pay attention and be mindful of portion sizes, rather than focusing only on what you cannot have or don't want to eat. This is the time to sort of step back a little bit and remember that food is more than biochemistry; food feeds the soul also.
