Proposed is a three-arm randomized controlled trial of 6-months of weight loss counseling (i.e., dietary-induced caloric restriction and physical activity) on clinically meaningful endpoints in 100 breast cancer survivors . The three arms will be: 1. In-person counseling, 2. Telephone-based counseling, 3. Usual care. Women will be randomized into one of 3 study arms using a random permuted block design. Research staff collecting body composition data, as well as reviewing forms and entering data, will be blinded to the participant's study group.
