Title   Can Diet and Physical Activity Modulate Ovarian, Fallopian Tube and Primary Peritoneal Cancer Progression-Free Survival?
Summary   The main purpose of this study is to find out if a change in diet and exercise in women with previously treated ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer has an effect on the length of time they remain cancer free following the completion of their initial treatment. Other goals include finding out if the changes in diet and exercise will improve overall quality of life and the patients’ ability to be physically active.
Description   Patients will be randomized, or put into a group by chance, into one of two groups. One group will include the diet and physical activity intervention; the other group will include no interventions related to diet and physical activity. Both groups can participate in coaching phone calls and will receive mailed educational materials. Patients will be actively followed for 24 months and then enter a follow-up period.
