Can Weight Loss Reduce The Risk Of Cancer?

The Role of Nutritional Counseling in Reducing Cancer Risk

The associations between cancer and weight loss are complex and not completely understood. However, what is known supports the idea that weight and cancer are highly related. Here at Genesis Health Solutions in Lynchburg, we help patients understand how their choices affect their cancer risk and how to change these risks through the process of nutritional counseling.

Cancer and Weight Loss

Certain cancers appear to be more common in people who are overweight or obese. The reasons are not yet fully understood, but there are believed to be links between certain body chemistry changes that occur in people who are overweight and an increased risk of these cancers. Whether or not weight loss reduces cancer risk in someone who is already overweight is not completely understood, but many of the body chemistry changes do reverse themselves, which is a hopeful sign that risk may decrease when people lose weight, as well.

Aside from weight loss, the role of diet in cancer risk is also important. People can eat a very poor diet and not be overweight or obese, but this may still put them at higher risk of certain cancers. While we are primarily a weight loss clinic, we also offer nutritional counseling to patients who are simply trying to learn how to eat better, as we recognize that healthy eating is an important part of a healthy lifestyle for people of all shapes and sizes.

  • I can’t begin to tell you how much appreciation I have for the Tanzar’s and this program. Truly a life changing decision when I invested in this program. Genesis is a very apt title but it’s also like a rebirth. I’m on my second life which is healthy, happy and pain free. I lost 85 lbs in 4 months, maybe less time. That is about 15 lbs more than my goal. So excited about the rest of my life!
