Abstract: besity is one of the main avoidable factors of cancer recurrence, especially in women diagnosed with breast cancer. The mediterranean diet has proven to be a preventive factor against obesity and has a high anti-inflammatory power, which decreases the risk of recurrence. The overall objective of the intervention is to promote healthy eating habits, based on the Mediterranean Diet, in women survivors of breast cancer, between 55 and 64 years old who suffer from obesity and belong to the Primary Care Center 'Rio de Janeiro' from Barcelona. The program has an experimental design, being a randomized controlled trial, in which an intervention group (30 people) and a control group (30 people) participate. The 6-month program is based on the ecological model of behavior modification and it is divided into 6 educational sessions. The design is flexible and allows the development of the intervention in other contexts, such as hospitals and cancer associations. Future research should focus on the development of an evaluation tool that serves to discover the factors that would determine the effectiveness of the programs. This study aims to be useful for research in the promotion of the Mediterranean Diet and its benefits in women survivors of breast cancer who suffer from obesity, with recommendations based on scientific evidence in order to reduce the obesity of the participants until reaching a healthy weight.
