Healthy Living Centers

Healthy Living Centers are educational and health promotion materials on healthy living. The Centers enable Veterans to take control of their own health. From eating better, to physical activity, to healthy behaviors and medication safety, the Centers provide information and services for Veterans and Servicemembers making the move from active duty to civilian life. Veterans can use these Centers to improve their health on their own terms.

Tip of the Day

Tip of Day

Eat more often to lose weight! Eating five or six small meals a day is healthier and more conducive to losing weight than three large meals. If you are trying to lose weight, take the amount of food you would normally eat at three meals and divide it in half and portion it out in five small meals throughout the day. Smaller portions eaten throughout the day not only prevent binge eating, it also speeds up your metabolism and helps you burn calories more efficiently over a longer period of time.
