    Shiella K. Lost 16 lbs.* and Feels Like Herself Again

    I want to learn how to make changes in my diet.
  6. *Weight loss on Classic Program. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Received promotional consideration. Age 53, London, Ontario, Canada, Bookkeeper, Mother My father became very ill in 2015. I was doing a lot of traveling from Canada to Florida to visit him and help my mom. At the time, I never felt hungry. Instead, I ate to try to fill a void and calm my nerves. It was an incredibly stressful time and my eating habits seemed like they were out of control. My father’s health continued to decline and sadly, he passed away in May of 2016. Even though my weight gain was noticeable, none of my family ever commented on it. But I began to really dislike the image I saw in the mirror and I knew that my health was in jeopardy. My doctor was concerned about my high blood pressure, so she prescribed medication to bring it down. I went back to her office every three months so she could monitor my blood pressure. At that point, I resigned myself to being overweight and dependent on medication for the rest of my life. #wistia_chrome_25 #wistia_grid_31_wrapper .w-css-reset{font-size:14px;} #wistia_chrome_25

suggested that I come along with her to a high-intensity interval training class at her gym. The thought of that was terrifying. After all, I was overweight and out of shape and I didn’t think I would be able to handle such a demanding class. Despite my fear, I took the class with my daughter and eventually fell in love with working out. I went 3-4 times a week, but did not change my eating habits. I thought I would be able to burn off my excess weight with exercise, but instead, I was still gaining weight. I began to think exercise was a waste of my time, since it wasn’t helping me lose weight. I felt very discouraged. Joining Jenny Craig was my saving grace. I was welcomed with open arms and found success while getting my eating habits back on track. Betty and Sue, my consultants, are my biggest fans. I look forward to seeing them each week! Although I am on maintenance now, I keep myself in check by and continuing to eat Jenny Craig food to keep my portions under control. My blood pressure is back within a normal range and my doctor has taken me off my medication.† My workouts have remained a constant, but my body has changed significantly. I have run two 5K races with my daughters and even placed in the top three in my age group in one of them!

  7. I am grateful that Jenny Craig diet has helped me put an end to mindless snacking and drinking in early evening hours. It feels really amazing to skip the evening glass(es) of wine which on bad nights might turn into a dinner of wine, baguette and Camembert cheese. Not drinking alcohol regularly has made me realize how bloated and fatigued I used to feel. I'm also coming home earlier in the evening because I don't succumb to the late afternoon munchies - chips and candy bars. I get hungry around 4:00 so that is my signal to pack up and go home and eat dinner. Since I'm home earlier and not drinking alcohol I have enough energy to tackle projects at home or head to the gym. My face is looking great - clear, redness has gone away and amazingly so have the dark circles under my eyes. Moving my diet to eat more healthfully and earlier in the day I think has helped make me have better mental alertness and clarity at work. There are a ton of benefits beyond just the number on the scale and in many ways those are more important to my overall health.

    7 Facts About Diabetes You Need To Know

    I am a life time Jenny Craig member. I have recently been diagnosed as having diabetes. Can you help. I am allergic to seafoods. Don't eat cheese or chocolate and pork because of migraine. Thank you.
  10. Maybe it was the traffic jam on your way to work, an argument with your significant other, or being late (again!) to that 9 a.m. meeting — whatever the reason, stress may seem like it’s a part of your everyday routine. If you’re feeling frazzled, you’re not alone — nearly half of Americans report feeling stressed, according to a recent Gallup poll.1 But all stress isn’t created equal – there are specific types that could spell trouble for your mental, physical and emotional health. And surprisingly, there is such a thing as “good stress!” Read on as we identify the different types of stress, explore the impact it has on the body, and discuss simple techniques to find balance. What is stress? You’re probably familiar with the kinds of situations that cause stress, but simply defined, stress is the physical and mental tension that can be caused by many circumstances. The National Institute of Mental Health breaks it down into three general categories:3 Routine stress brought on by your day-to-day responsibilities like work, family, or school; Sudden stress resulting from negative changes like illness or loss of a job; and Traumatic stress from events like serious accidents or natural disasters. The different types of stress The American Psychological Association takes a more in-depth look at three major types of stress and the impacts they have on your physical, mental and emotional well-being. 1. Acute stress This is the most common type of stress and is often the easiest to recognize. Acute stress is short-term and typically very manageable.4 It can be good — the thrill of an exciting experience, for instance, but too much of it can lead to exhaustion — like if you’re stuck in traffic multiple times a day. Acute stress can also cause adverse effects like anxiety, muscle pain, stomach issues, or increased blood pressure. 2. Episodic acute stress This type of stress can affect people in two distinct ways. Those who find themselves frequently feeling irritable, short-tempered or with too much “nervous energy” may suffer from this type of stress.3 A self-described “worrier” might also feel the pressure of episodic acute stress, but experience anxiety, rather than irritability.4 In both cases, people experiencing this type of stress are overstimulated for extended periods, which may lead to tension headaches, high blood pressure, and even heart disease.4 3. Chronic stress Chronic stress is an ongoing, long-term condition that can be caused by the pressures of everyday activities or traumatic events, the American Psychological Association explains.5 If left untreated, chronic stress may lead to major health concerns, including anxiety, depression and high blood pressure.5 In an effort to soothe chronic stress, some people may turn to food for comfort. In fact, researchers are making more connections between stress eating and obesity. Studies have found continuous stress may make you more likely to reach for foods that are high in sugar and fat, even if you’re not hungry.6,7 What is good stress? Good stress, or “eustress,” is a healthy and positive result of challenging events or circumstances, compared to “distress,” which is negative.8 Good stress can feel exciting – your body releases the “stress hormones” cortisol and adrenaline. Your breathing rate, heartbeat and blood flow to your muscles, brain and limbs all increase.9 Examples of good stress can include moving, getting married or starting a new job.10 In small amounts, good stress may encourage you to be more motivated to complete tasks, helping you to feel accomplished.6 The good news? Research suggests you may be able to use stress to your advantage. Here’s how to make the most out of it, and how to ease any pressures you’re currently facing. Keep your stress levels in check Switch gears to find a new perspective. Feeling overwhelmed? Researchers from Columbia Business School suggest working on a separate task before returning to the original one.11 This gives you the opportunity to refresh your thoughts and tackle your first task with renewed enthusiasm. Take a break to redirect your attention – it’ll help you to rethink the way you view a problem and keep it from becoming stale and uninteresting. Make time for mindfulness. Giving yourself a few minutes to be present, feel grateful and focus on the positive is an effective strategy to help reduce stress.12 Check out these simple tips to learn how to add more mindful thinking to your day. Try adding a little physical activity. All you need are 10 minutes: a short walk could help improve your mood and help you manage stress.13 Getting your body moving boosts your ability to use oxygen, circulates your blood, and encourages your body to produce endorphins, the “feel-good” hormones that help you feel energized and happy. Give these basic exercises a try! Say yes to self-care. You might find yourself spending most of your time with others – friends, family and coworkers. Between your personal and professional responsibilities, a busy schedule could leave little time to yourself. Try to avoid spreading yourself too thin – give yourself the opportunity to rest and recharge. Consider these simple (and relaxing!) self-care suggestions or treat yourself to a gift. Stress can impact many areas of your life – even your health. Understanding the types of stress and how they can affect you is the first step to finding a better balance. From there, finding ways to de-stress – whether it’s talking to a health care professional, introducing some physical activity into your day, or taking time for self-care – can make an incredible difference in your physical and mental well-being. If stress has affected your weight, we’re here to help! Book your free appointment with Jenny Craig to start making positive, healthy changes today.

    New Study Reveals: Cancer Deaths Have Declined, But Obesity-Related Cancers are on the Rise

  12. Is this program good for a person with type 2 diabetes?
  13. If you’re tired all the time, or feel like you have no energy, too little sleep might not be the only thing to blame. In fact, a recent survey found that 45 percent of Americans who slept 7-8 hours each night said they still felt fatigued or tired up to three times per week!1 Dealing with stress and weight gain can both affect your health in surprising ways, and research is finding more connections between obesity and low energy levels.2 So can losing weight increase your energy? It definitely can help — and beyond boosting your physical energy, weight loss can have a significant impact on your overall health. Learn more about the benefits of weight loss when it comes to improving your energy and a few simple adjustments you can make today to put a little more pep in your step. It’s more than just a number on a scale You don’t need to lose a large amount of weight to notice a difference in your energy levels. Studies have shown that losing just 5-10 percent of your weight may benefit your health in a number of ways, including a reduced risk for obesity-related chronic diseases.3 Start with a manageable weight loss goal, which is a great way to keep your eyes on the prize. You can always adjust your goal weight once you’ve reached your first benchmark. Energy & weight loss With increased energy, it might be easier to balance your lifestyle with your responsibilities, and find the motivation for the activities you enjoy most. Here’s how weight loss could impact your energy levels: 1. Less fatigue during the day Up to 30 percent of the population may experience Excessive Daytime Sleepiness (EDS), which is powerful drowsiness during the day, according to a study conducted by researchers at Penn State College of Medicine.4 The researchers found connections between increased BMI and the condition, explaining weight gain predicted which study participants would experience EDS, while weight loss helped predict who would stop experiencing symptoms. In a separate study, researchers found a similar relationship between BMI and sleepiness – participants were more likely to report feeling tired as their BMI increased.5 When your body carries less weight, it uses less energy to help you move throughout the day.6 Losing weight may also help your body use oxygen more efficiently, making it easier to catch your breath during everyday tasks, like walking, cleaning or climbing stairs.7 2. Get better sleep Losing weight may also help you sleep better, which could result in increased energy and a boosted mood throughout the day.7 Poor sleep quality or too little rest can leave you feeling sluggish and irritable. In one study, individuals who lost at least five percent of their body weight over six months gained an average of 22 minutes of additional sleep each night.8 This same group also reported better sleep quality and improvements to their overall mood. Those who are overweight have an increased likelihood of developing obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when the airway becomes partially or completely blocked during sleep.9 People with sleep apnea may frequently wake throughout the night and may experience other health complications. Sleep is crucial to your overall health as it helps your body recharge and rejuvenate. Not only does it benefit your health, but sleep may also affect your weight loss. (Try these tips to help get a better night’s sleep!) 3. Eat well to feel energized Creating a routine that aligns with your body’s circadian rhythm could support your weight loss and benefit your energy levels. Eating balanced, nutritious meals combined with physical activity may help fight fatigue.10 And you don’t really even need to break a sweat! Incorporating fresh vegetables, fruit, lean proteins, and moderate amounts of whole grains and healthy fats into your diet is a great place to start. Sync up with your circadian rhythm by eating your meals within the first 12 hours of the day (for example, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.) – and abstain from food and caloric drinks for the remaining 12 hours. Most of those remaining 12 hours are spent sleeping. Jenny Craig’s Rapid Results program taps into Nobel Prize-winning science around circadian rhythms to align your weight loss goals with your body’s natural cycles. With Rapid Results, you can enjoy delicious chef-crafted meals and snacks (plus, dessert!) and personalized, one-on-one support from a dedicated consultant.

    What Really Happens to Your Body When You Skip a Meal

    Maybe you rushed out of the house to get to work on time. Maybe you forgot to eat. Maybe you thought it’d help you lose weight a little faster. Whatever the reason, skipping a meal isn’t a practice you want to make a habit. In fact, passing on your breakfast, lunch or dinner might make losing weight even more difficult. Jenny Craig’s Registered Dietitian, Briana Rodriquez, explains how you can make the most out of your meals and why skipping them could impact your weight loss. So, what happens if you skip meals to lose weight? 1. Those unhealthy snacks will start looking really tempting. Skipping a meal can cause your blood sugar levels to dip. Blood sugar, or glucose, is your body’s primary energy source. Your blood carries this sugar throughout your body, nourishing your cells and helping them to thrive.1 But when you skip a meal, your blood sugar plummets, and you might start looking for anything to satisfy your hunger. Reaching for foods with refined sugars (often found in white bread, candy and sodas) is a quick, but unhealthy fix. These processed sugars can cause your blood sugar to spike, but the satisfaction you’ll feel is temporary. Your sugar rush will quickly fade and the cycle may start all over again.2 “Avoid this spike-and-crash cycle by nourishing your body with foods that are rich in fiber and lean protein,” Rodriquez explains. “Nutritionally-dense foods can help curb hunger pangs and make you feel fuller longer.” Rodriquez recommends choosing from these healthy snack ideas instead: Berries: Not only are berries loaded with antioxidants, but they’re also nutritious and a great source of fiber. An appropriate serving size is about ¾ cup. Almonds: Perfect for an afternoon snack, almonds are rich in many nutrients, including protein, fiber and healthy fats. One serving is about 6 almonds. Eggs: They’re not just for breakfast! Eggs are an excellent source of protein and a great addition to a balanced diet. Have one egg for a snack or 2 eggs as the protein in your meal. Broccoli: This vegetable is healthy and satisfying and contains both fiber and protein. About 1 cup raw or ½ cup cooked is one serving, but this non-starchy vegetable is best consumed in 1-2 servings per meal. Nonfat plain Greek yogurt: One of the best ways to start your day! A 6-ounce serving provides you with more than 15 grams of protein. 2. Your hormones might go haywire. Ghrelin and leptin are your “hunger” hormones. While ghrelin increases your appetite, leptin decreases it. Both hormones help to regulate normal eating patterns.3 Research indicates that consuming healthy carbohydrates (such as whole grains and vegetables) and lean protein (such as lean cuts of chicken, beef or fish) may help to suppress ghrelin and aid in weight loss by keeping your appetite in check.3 “When you eat and what you eat both help regulate the release of these hormones, so it’s important to stick to a regular schedule,” Rodriquez says. “Balancing your nutrition and paying attention to when you feel hungry and full will help keep you on track with your weight loss and may prevent mindless eating.” 3. Eating smaller meals more frequently may be better for weight loss. Rather than skipping a meal, enjoying properly portioned meals throughout the day and eating more nutritionally-dense foods may benefit your weight loss efforts. With Jenny Craig, you’ll eat six times a day – breakfast, lunch, dinner and three snacks – to help you to manage your appetite and your weight - which can work more efficiently with your body than skipping meals. Consuming most of your calories earlier in the day, known as “front-loading,” may also help you to gradually lose more weight. By front-loading your calories, you may feel more satiated throughout the day and into the evening.4 Rodriquez mentions these additional benefits: Have sustained, steady energy throughout the day: You’ll avoid dramatic energy spikes by eating nutritious foods more often. Find your food “sweet spot”: You won’t feel too hungry or too full. Plus, portioned meals help prevent accidental overeating. Prevent mood swings: Forget about feeling “hangry,” when you can feel full and satisfied. Improve concentration: You can have the head space to focus on work, your kids, and your personal life when you fuel your body right. Follow a nutritionally-balanced plan: Eating regular meals and snacks throughout the day allows you to enjoy a variety of healthful foods – lean proteins, vegetables, fruit, whole grains, and healthy oils and nuts – that can support your body’s systems. “If you skip meals your goals may be harder to achieve,” Rodriquez notes, “and you may not get all the nutrients you need, which may make it harder to exercise, build muscle, and lose weight.” 4. It could impact your health. Missing meals may have effects beyond the scale, including an impact on your health. One study, which focused on middle-aged men and women, found a link between skipping breakfast and an increased risk of atherosclerosis – when arteries “harden” – which is caused by plaque buildup.5 The participants, who didn’t have a history of heart disease, were placed into one of three groups based on their breakfast habits: those who skipped breakfast, those who ate low-calorie breakfasts, and those who ate high-calorie breakfasts.6 Breakfast skippers were mainly overweight men who said they’d recently changed their diets within the last year to lose weight. Instead of a meal, they usually had coffee or orange juice. People in this group also reported eating most of their calories during lunch and ate more red meat, fast food, refined grains and fewer fruits, vegetables and whole grains.6 The researchers concluded that skipping breakfast could be an important signal for an unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits, which could eventually lead to atherosclerosis.6 “Consistently skipping meals won’t necessarily help you lose weight,” Rodriquez explains. Instead, it could lead to an unhealthy lifestyle and potential health consequences including an overall poor diet, low energy, even weight gain. According to Rodriquez, skipping meals may stall weight loss, and those who skip meals may be more likely to: Overeat Choose processed foods over something more nutritious Feel tired Experience mood swings Have difficulty maintaining weight loss long term “Weight loss may be easier to achieve and maintain when you have a balanced diet and spread out your meals and snacks within a 12-hour window,” says Rodriquez. “For the remaining 12 hours of the day, allow your body to rest and repair and make sure to get an adequate amount of sleep.” So the next time you’re running late to a morning meeting or don’t think you have the time to prepare a meal, remember these tips! Grab a healthy and ready-to-go meal to keep your weight loss efforts on track. With Jenny Craig, you eat 6 times a day and can still lose weight! Contact us to book your free appointment today.

    Your Guide to Trying a New Workout Class

    Are you a fitness class first-timer? Finding the courage to join a workout class can feel intimidating, especially if you’re just starting to explore new activities. Whether you exercise daily or want to try something new, taking a workout class for beginners is one of the best ways to discover what activities you enjoy. You might be thinking, “What if I don’t like the class?” or, “what if something embarrassing happens?” Don’t worry – the people around you will be focused on their own workouts. And if you don’t like it, there are plenty of other classes to choose from! When in doubt, phone a friend and show up to class with a workout buddy. You’ll have a built-in support system, and someone who you can cheer on, too! Here are five of our best tips for trying a new workout class and leaving with the confidence of a seasoned pro. Remember, the most important part is to enjoy the workout and have fun — even if the class doesn’t go as planned, you can revel in those post-workout endorphins! Always consult your doctor before starting a new exercise program. 1. Do a little research. via GIPHY If it’s your first time going to a gym workout, check it out online and read a few class descriptions. You’ll find out if you’ll need to bring any special gear, like footwear or a yoga mat. Take advantage of video clips posted to the gym or exercise studio’s social media page – they’ll give you an idea of what to expect during your first class. Or, call the studio with your questions to find out which class is best for beginners. 2. Arrive early. via GIPHY Give yourself 15-20 minutes before the class starts to fill out any necessary forms and introduce yourself to the instructor. Once you do, explain that you’re new and mention any concerns that you have. Do you have knee trouble or lower back pain? Your instructor can provide modifications and keep you in mind. Even if you don’t have injuries to worry about, the instructor will know you might need a little extra guidance or support. Plus, an early arrival guarantees you’ll get a good spot in the room! 3. Take frequent breaks. via GIPHY You don’t need permission to take breaks — listen to your body and slow down when you need to. Ask your instructor about any ‘active resting’ positions you can try, especially during yoga or Pilates. You’ll be able to take a break without completely stopping your workout. Even if you exercise often, a new class may work different muscles than you’re used to, so feel free to take breaks when you need them. 4. Remember to hydrate. via GIPHY Drink water before, during and after your workout. Dehydration affects your ability to maximize your workout. In fact, losing only two percent of your body weight in fluid can decrease performance by up to 25 percent!1 To get the most out of your class, drink water an hour before you exercise and make sure to sip water throughout the class as well. Toss a water bottle (or two) into your bag before you leave the house so you can stay hydrated before, during and after class. 5. Eat a pre-workout meal. via GIPHY Eat a mix of carbs, protein and a small amount of healthy fats a couple of hours before exercising. Try to avoid heavy, spicy or salty foods before a workout, since they can cause bloating and discomfort.2 If your workout is particularly strenuous, try to eat a light snack within 30 minutes of finishing your session to give your body the fuel it needs to recover (think: a Jenny Craig Chocolate Dream Shake or an apple with a teaspoon of nut butter).3 Bonus Tip: Remember to stretch! via GIPHY Typically, your instructor will lead you through some stretches and exercises to get you limber for your class. After your workout, your muscles will be warmed up after working hard. Gently stretch your arms, legs, back, and any other areas of tension to cool down, feel less stiff and more relaxed.4 Your body will thank you! Ready to get started? Trying a new workout class might seem scary at first, but completing your first one is a huge accomplishment! Trust us — the hardest part is getting started. It might take a couple of classes to get used to doing new movements, but they’ll get easier as you build your strength and endurance. Between workouts, you can improve your balance and strength with these helpful fitness videos. You got this! Eating healthfully and working out go hand in hand.

  29. It’s a shocking statistic, but true: After heart disease, cancer is the leading cause of death not only in the U.S., but across the world as well.1-2 But the great news is that deaths from cancer have been dropping steadily over the past few decades. In fact, newly released statistics from the American Cancer Society3 show a 27 percent reduction in cancer mortality over the span of 25 years. This equates to a decline of approximately 1.5 percent per year between 1991 and 2016 — and 2.6 million fewer cancer deaths during that timeframe. Researchers attribute these reductions primarily to steady reductions in smoking, coupled with advances in early detection and treatment. Yet the news isn’t all good, unfortunately. While cancer survival rates have been going up, brand-new research4 shows that young people are being diagnosed with cancer at alarming rates, especially cancers that are associated with obesity. Obesity in the U.S. and throughout the world continue to climb.5 All of this leaves researchers wondering whether the improvements we’ve been seeing with cancer will eventually recede, as the long-term effects of obesity continue to emerge. Here’s what you need to know about this important topic, including areas where progress is being made and where signs of concern are emerging — along with information you can use, starting today, that may help you reduce your risk of developing obesity-related cancers. Where we’re seeing improvement Survival rates from cancer have improved in many areas over the past few decades. According to the latest report from the American Cancer Society:4 The overall death rate from cancer dropped by 1.4 percent per year in women and 1.8 percent in men from 2007 to 2016. Death rates from lung cancer dropped 48 percent among men from 1990 to 2016; they dropped 23 percent among women from 2002 to 2016. Breast cancer deaths dropped an impressive 40 percent among women from 1989 to 2016. The American Cancer Society notes this is likely due to early detection improvements. Survival from a majority of the most common cancers has improved since the mid‐1970s.6 What’s more, incidence rates of new cancer diagnoses dropped by approximately 2 percent per year in men while remaining about the same for women between 2006 and 2015.7 Where we’re seeing less progress Despite all of the great news, there is some troubling data emerging. For instance, a study published in February 20195 found that adults between the ages of 25 and 49 are experiencing a significant increase in six obesity-related cancers, including colorectal, kidney and pancreatic — with a steeper rise in progressively younger generations. The researchers state that these increases might be influenced by the rapid rise in the number of people who are overweight or obese; between 1980 and 2014, they say, the prevalence of overweight or obese in the U.S. increased by more than 100 percent among children and adolescents, and by 60 percent among adults between the ages of 20 and 74. The researchers add that excess weight could account for up to 60 percent of all endometrial cancers, 33 percent of kidney cancers and 17 percent of pancreatic cancers among adults aged 30 and older in the U.S. in 2014. Other areas of concern: Liver cancer rates are rising faster in both men and women than for any other type of cancer.8 However, the silver lining is that research has found that 71 percent of cases in the U.S. may be preventable, since most risk factors — obesity, excess alcohol consumption, and smoking, for example — can be modified.8 Breast cancer continues to be one of the leading causes of death for women between the ages of 20 and 59 and incidence rates have slightly increased from 2006 to 2015. Researchers note that this trend may be due in part to increasing rates of obesity.8 How does obesity affect cancer? According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health,8 there is consistent evidence that higher amounts of body fat are associated with an increased risk of more than a dozen cancers, including breast, kidney, liver, ovarian and pancreatic. In fact, one study estimates that approximately 28,000 new cases of cancer in men and 72,000 in women were linked to being overweight or obese in the U.S. in 2012.9 There are several mechanisms by which obesity may increase the risk of some cancers, the NCI reports.9 For instance, people who are obese often suffer from chronic low-level inflammation which can cause DNA damage over time and lead to cancer. Another factor is that fatty tissue produces extra estrogen; high levels of this hormone have been linked to increased risks of breast, endometrial, ovarian and other cancers. Obesity can also cause increased levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (which can also contribute to the development of diabetes). High levels of both of these may spur the development of colon, endometrial, kidney and prostate cancers.9 Steps you can take to help reduce your risk for obesity-related cancers To help you potentially lower your risk of developing cancer, the American Cancer Society recommends that you: 1. Get regular screening tests for cancer. Talk to your doctor about which ones you need, and when. 2. Lose weight if you need to. Being overweight or obese increases your risk for several types of cancer. Try to do everything you can to get to — and stay at — a healthy weight. Even losing 5-10 percent of your weight can have significant impacts on your health. Also, try to naturally reduce inflammation. 3. Exercise regularly. Physical activity has been shown to reduce the risk of several types of cancer, including breast, colon and endometrial. Adults should aim to get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week. 4. Eat a healthy diet. Research shows that eating a variety of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and fish or poultry is linked with a lower risk of developing certain cancers. On the other hand, eating more processed and red meat is linked with a higher risk of developing some cancers. Toward that end, you should aim to: Eat at least 2½ cups of vegetables and fruits each day (learn how to incorporate veggies at any meal) Try and eat less red and processed meat Choose whole grains over refined ones; such as opting for brown rice over white Eat sweets in moderation or reduce your intake 5. Don’t smoke. Approximately 80 percent of lung cancer deaths and 30 percent of all cancer deaths are caused by tobacco use. 6. Avoid alcohol. Alcohol increases your risk for certain types of cancer, including breast, colon, esophagus, liver and throat. While there are still many areas of concern when it comes to cancer, especially with the rise of obesity-related cancers, science continues to make great strides in combatting this disease. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to focus on making healthy choices, every day. Do you need help getting to a healthy weight?
