Healthy Lifestyles Weight Loss Class offered at VMH

Veterans Memorial Hospital dietitians will be offering a new eight-week weight loss class beginning in January that will teach the healthy lifestyle choices needed to lose the weight for good.  The key to permanent weight loss is to adopt new daily choices that, with consistent repetition, become habits. That is why the hospital offers the Healthy Lifestyles Weight Loss Class, which is open to anyone in the area communities of any age. The class will be offered Mondays from 5:30-6:45 p.m. starting January 15 running through March 5.

A free, introductory class will be held Monday, January 8 starting at 5:30 p.m. Anyone can hear more about the program and see if they wish to sign up for the eight-week program, beginning the following Monday.

Each of the eight-week classes will include 15 minutes of light exercise and 10 minutes of guided imagery or meditation for stress reduction. The nutrition component will emphasize a plant-strong diet with simple cooking demonstrations and new recipes.

The cost of the program covers materials, but is free to previous weight loss participants. Feel free to call Jill Fleming, RD/LD, Dietitian at Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411, Ext. 567 to register.
