Eating Healthy

Making healthy choices with better eating habits.

MAKING NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS?  Managing your weight with a healthy plate might be a good place to start!  Your West Texas VA Health Care System Dietitians have information on how you can create a healthy plate to help you lose weight.

Key principles in weight loss are: use a 9 inch plate, make half of that plate fruits and vegetables, add lean protein, include some whole grain, and don’t forget some low fat dairy.

Also important to consider are: avoid extra fat, don’t skip meals, try new foods, and to slow down when you are eating.

For a copy of the healthy plate placemat or for more information on weight management programs for Veterans, please contact your VA dietitians at 1-800-472-1365 extension 7070, 7067, or 7394!
