I CARE Story - MOVE!

A MOVE! class enjoying a VA Gourmet food demonstration.

This MOVE! class enjoyed a VA Gourmet food demonstration featuring a low-calorie yogurt parfait recipe.

Nutrition and Food Services developed a special MOVE! class for a group of Veterans who were friends and wanted to participate in the MOVE! program together. Dietitians were already seeing three of the Veterans. When a group follow up time was set, word got around and more friends were invited. Soon the group grew from three to eight Veterans.

Veterans meet with a MOVE! dietitian for one hour every other Monday. Veterans weigh-in, cheer successes, and encourage each other to overcome challenges. Some of the Veterans have gone beyond MOVE! to walk together and invited other class members to join them.  The Veterans continue to find support from both the MOVE! class and each other as they work on weight loss goals.
