Slide 1: ==== ==== For great Healthy Eating tips check us out at: www.healthyeatingtoday.net ==== ==== The football season is now underway, and I'm anxious to see how my favorite teams will performboth on offense and on defense. If we have a good offense, we will score lots of points, and if we have a good defense, we will keep the other team from scoring. This strategy is the perfect formula for winning games. However, if we have only a good offense or a only a good defense, but not both, we will probably only be victorious in some of our games. It is safe to say that only by maintaining reliable strategies on both sides of the ball--offensively and defensively--will we be likely to achieve what we really want - a winning season. Even if you are not a gridiron enthusiast, the same principle can be applied to the prevention of one of the most dreaded diseases we face-cancer. I have already lost a number of family members and friends to this killer, and I want the rest of my team to have the best healthy eating strategies I know of to win the cancer prevention contest--and win big. There are two major eating strategies that we know of for helping you prevent cancer. First, you need to develop a good offense by eating foods that have protective qualities against cancer. Second, you need to have a good defense by limiting or avoiding foods that seem to cause or promote this dreaded disease. The Offense - Eat these foods Protect your body with a strong and sturdy offensive line made up of colorful fruits and vegetables (be sure to wash them!), whole grains and legumes. These foods are loaded with fiber, nutrients and phyto-chemicals, which have been shown to protect your body against the substances that cause cancer. Check out some of the so-called super foods, like blueberries, broccoli and turmeric, and include them regularly in your diet. You may also want to increase your intake of Omega-3 fats, found in fish and flax seed, since these fats seem to have a protective effect. It's important for you to remember that healthy eating strategies protect your body in the same way that a tough offensive line protects the quarterback. The Defense - Avoid these foods Avoid or limit foods that seem to cause or promote cancer formation. These include fried foods, grilled foods, trans-fats and heavily smoked foods. In addition, there are some health experts that suggest that you avoid excessive intake of processed sugars, red meat and high-fat foods. Others suggest that you try to avoid foods that have been adulterated by dyes, artificial flavorings, hormones and other potentially harmful chemicals.
Slide 2: By choosing to limit or eliminate foods that aid in cancer formation and promote its growth, you are protecting your body in the same way that a solid defense protects the end zone. Just like with a football game, you want to begin implementing these healthy eating strategies at the beginning of the game. No team wants their offense to be fighting to score points in the last two minutes of the game. Instead, they want them to come out fighting and score in the first quarter. In the same way, no team wants their defense to cool their heels until they are in the red zone, since their job gets tougher and has a greater chance of failure the closer they get to the goal post. Don't wait. Start your healthy eating program today. We all know that nutrition is not the only factor associated with cancer risk, but it is one of the few factors that you can control. A football team can't control the weather, or injuries, or bad calls, just like you can't control heredity, environmental factors or the food supply. But each small change you make in your diet, both on offense and on defense will go a long way toward helping you have a winning season, and just maybe you will send cancer back to the locker room in defeat. Note: When encouraging people to eat healthy, I often hear the argument that grandma or grandpa ate a certain way-that might now seem unhealthy-and they lived to a ripe old age. The problem with this thinking is that, just as football isn't the same game today that it was 50 years ago, cancer issues are not the same either. Our grandparents grew up in an environment that was less toxic, less stressful and with a food and water supply that was entirely more wholesome than what we experience today. You probably shouldn't compare the record of a football player that played in the early days of the sport-before high-tech training methods and medicines--to today's players. It's not any more useful to compare how your grandparents ate to what is required for you to have a healthy eating lifestyle today. I am convinced that what we eat and how we eat plays a major role in how we feel and particularly, how well we are. For this reason, I would like as many people as possible to become more aware of what healthy eating involves, and of the extreme benefits that can be found in being conscious of what and how we eat. Eat and be healthy with my warmest regards, Suzy Staywell http://healthy-eating-support.org http://www.healthy-eating-support.org/healthy-eating-nutrition.html
