Weight Loss Q & A

What’s the connection between cancer and weight issues?

Weight is a growing problem in the United States, with over one-third of the population tipping the scales into obesity and a full two-thirds coming in overweight. As medical researchers continue to uncover the complications that come with weight loss, direct connections are being made to cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, and cancer.

The American Cancer Society reports that being overweight increases your risk of:

  • Breast cancer after menopause
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Endometrial cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Esophageal cancer

In addition to these direct links, reports suggest that many other cancers are influenced by your weight, including liver, gallbladder, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and certain reproductive cancers in both men and women.

Extra weight has an impact on your hormones, your immune system, and your cell growth, which, in turn, have a direct effect on whether you develop cancer.

What is involved in the weight loss program?

To reduce your risk for cancer, and many other health problems, Dr. Cutter created a weight loss program that embraces healthy living from all angles. The program is called HONERR©, which encompasses:

  • Hydration
  • Organ detoxification
  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Rest
  • Relationships

HONERR tackles your health and wellness from the inside out, giving you the physical and mental tools you need to lead a happy, healthy life. From drinking more water and eating foods rich in proteins and antioxidants to exercising and getting the right amount of sleep, you can help your body be its best version of itself.

By following Dr. Cutter’s complete plan, you can avoid or reverse the gene mutations that are responsible for most cancers. And, as an added benefit, you can lose weight the right way, without resorting to gimmick diets that produce short-term results and don’t take your health into consideration.

Should I lose weight if I have cancer?

While Dr. Cutter’s weight loss program is designed to combat obesity, anyone who’s undergoing cancer treatments can benefit from her plan since it involves exercise and better nutrition. For example, eating the right foods that boost your immune system, and avoiding sugars, which fuel cancer cells, can help you enormously in your fight against cancer.
