as health benefits.
  • Key strategies for maintaining a healthy weight include regular physical activity and limiting consumption of high-calorie foods and beverages.
  • Physical activity

    • Adults should get at least 150 minutes or moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity physical activity a week, or an equivalent combination. Children and teens should get at least an hour of moderate or vigorous intensity physical activity a day, with vigorous intensity activity at least three days a week.
    • Make a point of limiting sedentary behavior, such as sitting, lying down, watching television and other types of screen-based entertainment.

    Diet

    • Eat at least 2.5 cups of vegetables and fruits a day.
    • Avoid eating processed and red meat.
    • Select whole grains instead of refined grain products.

    Alcohol

    • Men should have no more than two drinks per day and women should have no more than one drink per day.

    The guidelines also include recommendations for community action to support individual cancer prevention lifestyle behaviors. Public, private and community organizations should work together at national, state and local levels to achieve policy and environmental changes that:

    • Increase access to affordable, healthy foods in communities, workplaces and schools.
    • Reduce promotion of and access to foods and beverages with low nutritional value, particularly to youth.
    • Create safe, enjoyable and accessible settings for physical activity in schools and workplaces, and for recreation and transportation in communities.

    "The environments in which we live, work, learn and play have a tremendous impact on our ability to make and sustain healthy lifestyle choices. So if we're not working to change those environments so that the healthier choice is the easier choice, we're missing the boat," Doyle said.
