Abstract

In cancer patients visceral and subcutaneous fat is strongly related to an enhancement of the comorbidities. Correction of dietary habits and Physical Exercise (PE) are means used for the reduction of metabolic risk factors especially in these patients. Aerobic exercise has been well studied but few data are available in case of combination with resistance exercise. The aim of the study is to assess the effects of both exercise, resistance and aerobic, associated to correction of dietary habits in reducing the major risk factors.
