In order for the activity to count, you will need to feel warmer and to breath harder, but you should still be able to talk.

Dietary considerations

To reduce your risk of cancer, the World Cancer Research Fund recommend you:

  • Eat more grains, vegetables, fruit and beans
  • Avoid high-calorie foods
  • Limit consumption of red and processed meat
  • Limit consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks

  • Chocolate and sweets
  • Crisps
  • Biscuits
  • Cake
  • Ice cream
  • Fast food, like burgers, fried chicken or fries
