A low carbohydrate, high protein diet slows tumor growth and prevents cancer initiation


 Strikingly, in a genetically engineered mouse model of HER-2/neu-induced mammary cancer, tumor penetrance in mice on a Western diet was nearly 50% by the age of 1 year whereas no tumors were detected in mice on the low CHO diet. This difference was associated with weight gains in mice on the Western diet not observed in mice on the low CHO diet.”

 Taken together, our findings offer a compelling preclinical illustration of the ability of a low CHO diet in not only restricting weight gain but also cancer development and progression”

The Power of Protein at Breakfast for School-­Aged Children


Easy Ways to Add More Protein
to Breakfast
It is easy to incorporate more protein into
children’s breakfasts. Here are a couple of ideas for
including more high­quality protein in breakfast:

  • Eggs: Make a breakfast burrito or a breakfast
    sandwich with scrambled eggs for a portable
    breakfast. Eggs can also be served with toast
    or prepared in an omelet with low­fat cheese
    and vegetables. 
  • Dairy: Adding Greek yogurt to fruit smoothies is
    a way to add 10­15 grams of protein to a child’s
    breakfast. Eating low­fat regular or Greek
    yogurt by itself or mixed with cereal and fruit is
    another way to add protein to breakfast.
  • Breakfast meats: Add lean breakfast meats
    such as turkey bacon, turkey sausage or
    Canadian bacon to breakfast.
