I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

“If you are a Human Resources or wellness professional looking to take your employee health and well-being strategies to the next level, the Anticancer Lifestyle Program is unrivaled. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”

Handy advice about portion sizes

Are you confused about portion sizes?  Our Diet module offers a useful video about how to measure portions.  Here are some other easy-to-use, “handy” ways to gauge portion sizes, using the average adult-sized hand:

  • Fist = 1 cup of vegetables, fruits, or grains
  • Thumb tip (from the joint) = 1 teaspoon of peanut butter, olive oil, or salad dressing
  • Whole thumb = 1 ounce of, say, cheese
  • Flat palm = 3 ounces of fish, chicken, or meat.  Larger palms represent 4 to 5 ounces
  • Cupped hand holds 1-2 ounces of nuts


Some visual cues suggested by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:

  • Deck of playing cards = 3 ounces of meat, poultry, or fish
  • Baseball = 1 cup pasta
  • Tennis ball = half-cup fruit
  • 1 die = 1 teaspoon spread or butter
