Welcome   to the MOVE! Weight Management Program for Veterans (MOVE!), supported by VA's National Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (NCP). We are proud to make this program available to Veterans. Now in its second decade, MOVE! includes the most up-to-date approaches for weight management. Please explore our website to learn more about MOVE!

What is MOVE!?   MOVE! is VA’s evidence-based weight management program. Adapted from the Diabetes Prevention Program, MOVE! assists Veterans to achieve clinically meaningful (~5%) weight loss to improve their health and reduce their risk for chronic health conditions, like diabetes. MOVE! features a comprehensive lifestyle intervention that provides Veterans with support to make changes to their eating patterns, increase physical activity, and use strategies (like goal setting and problem solving) that help with these changes. The self-management skills Veterans learn in MOVE! also help them to manage chronic conditions, including diabetes.
