Holiday food temptation is everywhere. It’s at the office, the homes of family and friends, and possibly even in your own home. Don’t let your excessive eating spiral out of control. MD Anderson has the perfect plan to help you avoid those extra holiday pounds, while still indulging in your favorite holiday treats.
“Maintaining a healthy weight plays a big part in preventing cancer,” says Sally Scroggs, M.S., R.D., L.D., health education manager at M. D. Anderson’s Cancer Prevention Center.
Obesity and physical inactivity contribute to about 25 to 30% of several major cancers, says the American Cancer Society. Completing 30 minutes of moderate activity, such as brisk walking, every day and eating a healthy plant-based diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables may reduce your chances for cancer.
