About AICR’s New American Plate Challenge

AICR’s New American Plate Challenge is a 12-week interactive program that gets you eating smarter, moving more and managing your weight!

Each week you’ll take one step – a challenge – to put AICR’s 10 Recommendations for Cancer Prevention into action. Research suggests that our evidence-based recommendations not only lower cancer risk, but also help survivors.

Start Where You Are

We know there’s not just one diet and exercise plan that works for everyone. AICR’s NAP Challenge was designed for you to start where you are. Eat the foods you like and enjoy the activities that fit into your life.

You will gradually build habits to eat healthier and get more active by working through the weekly challenges. Each challenge includes specific goals that you work on at your own pace.
