Studies continue to support a link between obesity and increased risk for certain cancers. Eating a healthy, plant-based, balanced diet can not only help you manage your weight, but may also help reduce your risk for developing certain cancers, while supporting your immune system, helping you feel well during treatment, and promoting healthy survivorship. This video offers diet tips, weight management and food suggestions centered around colorful plant-based foods (fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, herbs and spices).

This video is part of the Eating Well During Cancer series, provided by our friends over at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, featuring Dana-Farber nutritionist Stacy Kennedy. The goal of this video series is to explore how diet can help support your health and well being during and after cancer treatment.
