Brand new research on breast cancer prevention presents strong evidence that simple lifestyle changes, like diet and healthy weight management, can significantly reduce risk, which is great news when the worldwide incidence of breast cancer has increased by more than 20% since 2008.
You already know that you should eat healthier and exercise, but decreasing your risk of breast cancer is just one more great reason to get started now. So what do you need to do to decrease your risk?
Eat: Go Mediterranean, reduce your carbs, and get plenty of veggies – especially the cruciferous kind (broccoli, kale, cauliflower, arugula). Ditch the processed, sugary junk – it’s not worth it! If you need a quick and easy veggie pick-me-up, try my Power Greens.
Drink: You need water to flush the toxins from your body. Increase your water intake, drink more herbal teas, ditch the sugary drinks and keep alcohol to a minimum. And make sure you’re drinking from BPA-free containers!
Exercise: Even increasing your exercise by a little is going to help. So don’t give up because you don’t have it in you to go big. Start small, and increase your exercise little by little.
Supplement: Need a little help controlling cravings and getting your diet back on track? Try my supplements for healthy weight support.
