The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that carrying excess weight is the most important avoidable cause of cancer after tobacco and 18 per cent of UK cancer cases are linked to being overweight or obese.
According to a recent report by the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), fatness increases the risk of post-menopausal breast cancer, colorectal and pancreatic cancers and is linked to cancers of the oesophagus, womb, gall bladder and kidney.
Fat stores release hormones such as oestrogen and insulin, high levels of which trigger unwanted inflammatory and cell growth processes in the body.
It’s not clear if your risk returns to normal if you lose weight or if there is a residual risk but losing weight now if you need to will certainly prevent your risk increasing in the future, not to mention decreasing your risk of heart disease and diabetes.
A combination of Cognitive Hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT is one of the most effective methods of helping people to lose weight. It will focus on the reasons for your overeating, rather than getting you to diet and provides you with the tools that will help you to manage your eating habits as well as increasing your motivation to exercise.
