About the Event

Favoring Fiber: Fiber helps your body rid itself of toxins, waste hormones, excess cholesterol, chemicals, and other un-desirables. Without fiber in the diet, these excess compounds can get reabsorbed into the bloodstream, leading to a possible increased risk of cancer growth. Additionally, fiber is especially important in helping the immune system function properly, as well as facilitating the removal of waste from the body. Building your  diet  from  fiber-rich  plant  foods  is  important  for  cancer  prevention  and  survival  as  well  as  overall  health. In this class, enjoy a fiber-rich meal as you work toward your goal of 40 grams of fiber per day. Maintaining a Healthy Weight: Healthy  weight  control  is  essential  for  warding  off  a  variety  of  chronic  diseases.  Studies  have  shown  that slimmer people are even less likely to develop cancer, compared with their heavier counterparts. In addition, trimming excess weight may also improve survival after cancer has been diagnosed. This class will discuss and demonstrate fiber- and nutrient-rich dishes that will help you maintain a healthy weight.
