Dietary treatment of overweight/ obese men with prostate cancer has not been well studied. As men with prostate cancer who are overweight/ obese are at an increase risk of recurrence, metastasis and mortality, elucidating a diet that will both improve biomarkers for prostate cancer and lead to long-term weight management could improve survivorship. The primary objective of this proposal is to compare a plant-based, olive oil (PBOO) diet to a conventional diet for weight loss and improvement in metabolic biomarkers (specifically fasting insulin, glucose, and triglycerides) for overweight/ obese men diagnosed with prostate cancer on surveillance or who have had an asymptomatic biochemical failure after primary therapy. The secondary objective is to determine which diet will be more acceptable for long term use. Participants will consume for 8 weeks each a conventional diet for treating prostate cancer and a PBOO diet for weight loss and improvement in biomarkers with random assignment to the diet order. They will choose one of the diets for 6 months of follow-up. Blood samples and body weight will be obtained pre- and post diet and after 6 months of follow-up and compared between the diets. Based on earlier work by colleagues of the PI, it is anticipated that the PBOO diet will result in better weight loss and biomarkers and will be more acceptable for long-term weight management. This protocol has the potential to elucidate a diet that will improve the body weight and survival of men with prostate cancer.

Diverse plant products (e.g. fruits, vegetables, legumes) are associated with decreased cancer risk at several locations while red and processed meat were found to increase cancer risk. A pro plant-ba...
The Mediterranean diet has been related to a reduced risk of several common cancers but its role on breast cancer has not been quantified yet. We investigated the association between adherence to the ...
The PTEN/PI3K/AKT axis plays a critical role in regulating cell growth, differentiation and survival. Activation of this signaling pathway is frequently found in human cancers. Our previous studies de...
A diet typical of the Mediterranean region characterized by a pattern high in fruits and vegetables, cereals and bread, potatoes, poultry, beans, nuts, olive oil and fish while low in red meat and dairy and moderate in alcohol consumption.
A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.
Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.
A diet that contains limited amounts of fat with less than 30% of calories from all fats and less than 10% from saturated fat. Such a diet is used in control of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. (From Bondy et al, Metabolic Control and Disease, 8th ed, pp468-70; Dorland, 27th ed)
A nutritional plan based on the presumed diet of pre-agricultural human ancestors. It consists mainly of MEAT, EGGS, NUTS, roots and fresh VEGETABLES and FRUITS, and excludes GRAIN, LEGUMES, DAIRY PRODUCTS, and refined DIETARY SUGARS.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
