Hi Indiana Ice,
There have been a number of studies that investigated the impact of diet on PCa. If you google "prostate diet" you will get several good results. The WebMD site is a good one for advice as well. I have just ordered a copy of the book on diet by Dr Myers. I understand it is full of useful advice on diet and PCa. There was an article a few months back that indicated pomegranite juice consumption was useful in the treatment of PCa. The impact of the juice was on the ability of the cancer to reproduce. (apoptosis is the tech term). One eight ounce glass per day was the recommendation in the article I read. Stuff has an awful after taste so I blend it with orange juice. You can get it at Wal Mart.
Just as there are good things in terms of vitamins and supplements there are some to avoid. I think the Myers' book has some info on this.
I too am trying to lose a little excess weight brought on by my hormone treatment. One bit of advice. Don't over do it at the start. This is the quickest way to ruin good intentions to excercise. Set weekly goals and do your best to meet them. Keep track of your progress. It is a powerful motivator.
Good luck with your weight loss.
