I am sure it would be a combinations of keeping your weight correct for your height. As for excercise, probably a combo or aerobic's and weights. When a woman is overweight, more estrogen is produced, if she has cancer cells which are fed by estrogen, being overweight, feeds her cancer. THere is also more of a chance to develop heart disease and diabetes. Increased muscle mass burns more calories too. Once you get on a real exercise program, it almost becomes addictive because your brain starts releasing endorphins.... the happy hormone! Even if the only thing you can do is walk, it is better than nothing. You need to start out very slowly. People make the mistake of trying to be an Olympian the first time out. They get sore and discouraged. It would be great if you could have a friend to walk with or take your doggy for a nice walk. You also need to work on eating well. Fresh organic fruits, veggies, some fish, chicken, minus the skin, baked. My friend told me the best way to grocery shop is to shop the perimeter of the grocery store. The aisles have all the processed foods. Eating well is actually easier because you are eating whole foods.... whole grains, nuts, vegies, fruits etc.
You know it is the same thing we've been told forever. Eat right, keep your weight down, and exercise. Good luck! Sharon
