Le corps de chacun est unique et possède sa propre composition : sa constitution en os, en muscles et en tissus adipeux.</p><p>C'est la génétique qui détermine la constitution de ton corps (le code dans ton ADN qui provient de ta famille) et ton mode de vie. Comme certaines personnes sont plus petites et plus grandes, certaines personnes ont plus ou moins de tissus adipeux ou musculaires que d'autres.

This can be difficult when you have cancer because some cancers or cancer treatments such as steroids can make you feel more hungry than usual. Others can make it hard to eat or stay physically active. </p><p>The best source of information about a healthy weight is your health-care team. You and/or your parents can talk to your doctor, nurses, dietitian, or physiotherapist. They understand the challenges that come with having cancer and can give you suggestions to stay healthy.</p><h2>Why is a healthy weight important?</h2><p>Eating a healthy diet and staying at a healthy body weight can help prevent some types of cancer in the future. Keeping a healthy weight can also help prevent other chronic (long-term) diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. So, eat well and stay active to be healthy in the future.</p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/Maintaining_a_healthy_weight_TTC_Cancer.jpg
