Reduce Weight, Reduce Chronic Inflammation, Reduce Risk of Cancer
I was sitting at the gym waiting for my sweetie to finish his workout and picked up a copy of the June 2nd Science News magazine to read. Found a really interesting article by Nathan Seppa, “Weight Loss May Cut Cancer Risk.”
Since I’ve been dealing with chronic inflammation issues my entire life… and in the past 7 months have completely changed my diet to help reduce systemic inflammation caused by food allergies. The result has actually been a significant change in size and shape. Not as much actual weight loss as I’d love to see yet – but 15 pounds in 6 months for someone who has never been able to lose weight is something I’m quite happy with.
But more than the weight loss, is the significant difference in how I FEEL! My joints no longer ache, my belly is flatter than it’s ever been. I feel stronger physically. My “skinny” size 4 jeans (that have been tucked away in my closet since I’ve been a size 8-10-12 for almost 10 years are now almost too big.) If anyone had told me 20 years ago that the foods I was eating were a part of why I was always dealing with health issues, I would have been much healthier, many years sooner! I am truly amazed. Always thought I was a healthy eater. Didn’t realize that two-thirds or more of the foods I was eating, my body couldn’t tolerate. The result –chronic inflammation!
I am convinced that there are lots of women out there, completely oblivious to the foods that they are consuming that are contributing factors to:
- Chronic Inflammation
- Weight Gain
- Chronic Health Problems
While this article doesn’t address the food allergy issue, I found it interesting to note that not only does weight loss help reduce inflammation, but also can reduce the risk of cancer. Happy to know that the positive changes I’ve been making for a healthy lifestyle have many great benefits!
Hope this article will encourage you to pay attention to your weight and take steps in the right direction to maintain and improve your health.
