If you are one of our Philadelphia Medical Weight Loss Patients or Bucks County Weight Loss Patients, you know that every week or every other week I like to post articles on our site of great tasting recipes that can help you reach your weight loss goals or a review of new studies, reports and/or fitness trends. This week I am going to review and alarming report put out by the CDC that tells us that being overweight – obese is responsible for as much as 40% of all the cancer diagnosed in the United States. Two additional resources that I used were Helio.com and Reuters.com. Both these resources did an excellent job of summarizing the report put out by the CDC.

According to the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report published by the CDC…

There are 13 cancers that are associated with being overweight and obese and they cause approximately 40% of all the diagnosis of cancers in the United States. According to Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D. the director of the CDC, the majority of American adults weigh more than recommended – and being overweight or obese puts people at high risk for a number of cancers – so these findings are definitely a cause for concern. By getting to and keeping a healthy weight, we all can play a role in cancer prevention.

US health officials have stated that this significant increase in cancers caused by being overweight and obese is threatening to reverse the progress in reducing the numbers of cancers diagnosed in the United States every year. It is staggering that in 2014 there were 631,604 people in the United States were diagnosed with the cancer associated with being overweight or obese. It’s quite alarming that the overall rate of new cancer diagnosis sees has decreased since the 1990s but the rates for overweight related and obesity -related cancers have been rising. In routers.com they quote Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC saying that these statistics show that in some cancers were going in the wrong direction.

Dr. Schuchat also stated that at least half of Americans are not aware of this link between being overweight – obese and cancer. And that reports suggest that healthcare providers in the United States need to make it totally clear to patients that there is a link between being overweight/obese and cancer and they must encourage patients to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.

Justin 2014 alone, these cancers associated with being overweight – obese made up 40% of the 1.6 million cancers diagnosed that year. And they caused 55% of the cancers diagnosed in women and 24% of the cancers diagnosed in men.

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the 13 cancers that are associated with overweight and obesity include: breast cancer – postmenopausal breast cancer, thyroid cancer, gallbladder cancer, stomach cancer, liver cancer, pancreas cancer, kidney cancer, ovary cancer, cancer of the uterus, colon cancer, rectum – colorectal cancer, meningioma, multiple myeloma and adenocarcinoma of the esophagus.

The CDC recommends that clinicians counsel patients on maintaining a healthy body weight and that they refer patients with obesity to intensive programs. So, they are recommending that maintaining a healthy body weight is one of the key ingredients to improving overall health and wellness and preventing cancer.

Now there are many indicators that will help you to determine what your good healthy body weight. One of them is the BMI. A BMI between 18.5 – 24.9 is considered normal, a BMI of 25 – 29.9 is considered overweight and a BMI of 30 and above is considered obese. Another indicator can be the size of your waist. From current literature is recommended that females have a waist circumference not greater than 31.5 inches; and men have a waist circumference of 37 inches or less. Your body fat percentages is also a good method to determine what your healthy weight should be. In the office we use these tools to determine what your healthy weight should be.

So aside from being able to fit in your skinny jeans and your bathing suit, maintaining a healthy body weight can help you improve your overall health and wellness and prevent many illnesses. And according to the report put out by the CDC it seems that maintaining a healthy body weight can possibly even help prevent cancer.

I hope you take this information to heart and it helps motivate you to achieve your weight loss goals.

Cookies and Cream Protein Bars

I have to tell you that this is a fantastic recipe and it’s especially good after a good workout. And these protein bars are going to be gluten-free, dairy free, sugar free and vegan.

  • Ingredients:

Let’s start by taking a lower baking dish grease it and then line it with parchment paper and then grease the parchment paper and set this bowl on the side. Then take the granulated sweetener, protein powder, sugar free chocolate cookies that we have broken into large chunks or larger crumbs in the flour until a large microwavable safe bowl and mix itre. In another microwave safe bowl add the liquid sweetener and butter until it’s totally melted. Then pour your mixture into the dry mixture and stir it until everything mixes nicely together. It should be a bowl of large crumbs. Next add your milk preferably a couple tablespoons at a time while stirring it will form a nice thick batter. Now all that we have to do is take this mixture and pour it into your baking dish and press it down. Then just refrigerate this for at least 30 minutes.

Chocolate Ice Cream

  • banana – 2 – 3 bananas
  • any type of not butter such as cashew or almond butter – 1 – 2 tablespoons

  • Cereal – Rice Chex – 3 cups
  • Sugar free chocolate chips – 1.5 cups
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter or any other nut butter
  • Maple syrup sweetened with monk fruit  – 1.5 cups
  • Butter or coconut oil   – ¼ cup

Start by taking a 8 x 8-inch deep dish or deep baking tray and line it with parchment paper and set this on the side. Take a large mixing bowl and add the cereal into it. Next add all of the other ingredients into a bowl that is microwave safe and microwave this until everything has melted nicely. Then remove it from the microwave and stir everything together till it’s totally combined.

Now take this wet mixture and pour it over top of your cereal in the other Bowl and stir everything until it’s mixed well together. After then just pour it onto  your parchment lined baking tray and place it into the refrigerator and keep it there until it’s very firm. When it’s totally firm take it out of the refrigerator and slice it into bars, Then enjoy!

Blueberry Cheesecake with Pita chips

  • For the cheesecake:
  • Greek – 1 cup
  • Coconut flour – 1 tablespoon sifted
  • Stevia or Truvia –  1-2 tablespoons
  • Vanilla protein powder – 1 scoop
  • Blueberries – 1 cup
  • For the pita chips
  • Flatout flatbread – 1 whole flat bread
  • Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut butter – 1 tablespoon melted
  • Vanilla extract – 1/8 teaspoon
  • Coconut oil – 1/8 tsp

For the blueberry cheesecake:

Put your yogurt, coconut flour, protein powder, sweetener and half of your blueberries into a bowl and stir everything till it’s mixed very well together. When it’s totally mixed together just add the remaining blueberries over top. Take this mixture and place it in the refrigerator and let it cool.

To make the chips:

To make your pita chips preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Take your flat out wrap and cut it into small square pieces. spray them with any type of cooking spray and sprinkle your cinnamon over top. Please this in the oven and let it bake anywhere from 7 minutes to 10 minutes  or for as long as it takes for them to become crispy and then take them out of the oven and set them on the side and let them cool down. All you have to do now is  add your cocoa butter and to a small bowl and mix in your vanilla extract. Just make sure that it’s all stirred together nicely. You can drizzle this over top of your pita chips. I usually like to make the blueberry cheesecake mixture in the afternoon or evening and let it cool overnight  so that it has a bit thicker consistency when I eat it.

Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

  • Greek yogurt or Cottage cheese – 1 cup
  • Powdered peanut butter – 2 tablespoons
  • Cocoa powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Stevia or Truvia or Swerve -1 tablespoon

Take a bowl and add your sweetener, powdered peanut butter and cocoa powder and mix everything together nicely. When everything is totally combined stir in your yogurt and mix everything until your yogurt thickens. It will look and feel like pudding. Next stir in your peanut butter.You may now eat it or you can place it in the  refrigerator and let it become cool.
