Maintaining a healthy weight is an important step we can take to greatly reduce the possibility of developing certain forms of cancer. When trying to lose excess weight, many of us turn to fad diets that promise a quick fix. These dieting schemes often cause short-term weight loss, continuing no more than six months, followed by weight regain. Typically more weight is gained than was lost. The best way to lose excess weight is to improve health habits in lasting ways by eating well, living actively and making realistic healthy weight-loss goals.

Committing to these simple lifestyle changes can greatly improve your health and help us all Stop Cancer Before it Starts!
