There is no such thing as a quick fix. Fad diets, which eliminate or severely reduce certain food groups, may result in brief weight loss, but weight management is about reaching and maintaining a healthy weight for life. Weight management can benefit you personally and professionally, by improving overall health, preventing chronic disease, enhancing performance, and increasing resilience. You can achieve a permanent healthy weight by eating a balanced diet of nutrient-dense food and engaging in regular physical activity. The Health Promotion and Wellness Department of the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center offers tools and materials to help you lose or gain weight, or maintain a healthy weight.
