The average weight of American women (164 pounds) and men (191 pounds) has increased 25 pounds since 1960.
Gaining even a moderate amount of weight after the menopause can increase a woman's risk of breast cancer. Eating too many calories increases our risk of developing obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and of certain types of cancer related to obesity.
In a startling turnaround, breast cancer rates in the United States dropped dramatically in 2003, and experts said they believe it is because many women stopped taking hormone pills.
The 7.2 percent decline came a year after a big federal study linked menopause hormones to a higher risk of breast cancer, heart disease and other problems. Within months, millions of women stopped taking estrogen and progestin pills for hot flash relief.
A new analysis of federal cancer statistics, presented 12-13-06 at a breast cancer conference in San Antonio, revealed the drop in tumors.
About 200,000 cases of breast cancer had been expected in 2003; the drop means that about 14,000 fewer women actually were diagnosed with the disease.
Research by the Rand Corporation concludes that weight loss should be an urgent public health priority to improve our quality of life and mitigate the life threatening effects of obesity.
Dietary factors are associated with 5 of the 10 leading causes of death: coronary heart disease, some types of cancer, strokes, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's Disease.

Women's Weight Loss and Dieting Tips
1. If you want to keep lost pounds off, daily weighing is critical. But stepping on a scale isn't enough. You have to use that information to change your behavior, whether that means eating less or walking more. Paying attention to weight - and taking quick action if it creeps up - is the secret to success. If you are serious about weight loss, consider buying a battery powered digital scale.
2. Before you start your weight loss diet, take your body measurements around your bust, waist, hips, upper arms and thighs. Check them every month.
3. To set realistic achievable goals, quantify the results you desire.
- I will lose ten pounds in two months.
- When I get home I will walk for 20-30 minutes.
- I will eat 2 servings of fresh fruit everyday.
Post your weight loss goals on or near your bathroom mirror.
4. Read the "warning" label of nutritional facts on all foods and beverages you buy. Avoid trans fats and high fructose corn syrup. Buy grape juice instead of grape drink. Grape drink is sugar water with grape flavoring. Pay attention to calories per serving. If you watch what you eat 90% of the time, the other 10% is not a problem.
5. Eat more fiber. Eat Raisin Bran or Oatmeal for breakfast. Buy wholegrain/wholewheat bread. Look for wheat pasta - Barilla Plus. Fiber makes us feel full faster, lowers cholesterol and keeps us regular. Fiber makes it easier to achieve our weight loss goals.
6. Watch your portion size, especially when eating out. Instead of ice cream for desert or snacks, try individual cups of Luigi's Real Italian Ice or Sunshine Ice Cup Flavored Shaved Ice. Thaw briefly in the microwave for 10 seconds. Exercise is important, but portion size is a key factor in preventing obesity.
7. Stop eating the second you feel full. Eat until you are satisfied, not until you are stuffed, regardless of what is still on your plate. Eat slowly. Relax. Learning to recognize when you have eaten enough (and acting on it) is important for weight loss.
8. Eat soup 3 times a week. It helps speed up your metabolism and reduces hunger cravings. It is the best way to eat your vegetables. At the store, buy a large bag of frozen mixed vegetables, navy beans or lentils, and flavor with onions, garlic salt, chili pepper, soup bones or chicken wings. Consider adding cabbage and rice. If eating canned soup, try Bean with Bacon, Black Bean soup or Clam Chowder. Don't forget to soak your beans and lentils first.
9. Avoid fried foods and steam, broil or bake your meat, chicken and fish. When eating out, avoid donuts, french fries and KFC fried chicken.
10. Substitute olive oil cialis for other fats, plain yogurt for sour cream and Dijon mustard for mayonnaise whenever possible. Avoid sodas cialis online canada and soft drinks. Drink more orange juice. Treat yourself with a small glass of red wine an hour before bedtime. Better yet, mix it with a glass of orange juice.
11. Try Grapefruit. According to a 2005 Japanese study, the scent of grapefruit oil, and particularly its primary component limonene, affects autonomic nerves, enhances lipolysis through a histaminergic response, and reduces appetite and body weight. It also makes women appear six years younger to men, according to the Smell and Taste Institute in Chicago.
12. Think 25 calories a mouthful. Assume that's what every bite you take is worth. Many people do well during mealtime, but forget about the extra food they�ve had along the way � the handful of nuts before dinner, the taste of cookie dough, food left on your kid�s plate, every bite adds up. Four bites a day is 100 extra calories. In a month�s time, that�s nearly a pound of extra weight.
