When I met with my oncologist after my last treatment he told me that I now have three jobs:
1) Exercise Regularly
2) Eat Right
3) Keep my weight down
As he explained, lifestyle changes can make a difference in “turning on” the cancer cells in our body. There’s nothing we can do that will 100% remove the cancer risk, but there are things we can do to lower the risk as much as possible.
So I’m changing the way I’m shopping, how we’re eating, and my exercise plan. I’m determined to do what I can do to stay cancer-free.
The Cancer Center offers the services of a dietitian, so I’ve been taking advantage of that and meeting with her to discuss food choices and nutritional improvements.
Here are some things that are now appearing in the Savage household. I’d love to hear about any changes you are making to pursue healthy choices!
