Eating right and staying healthy may seem difficult at times, but the Ramstein Health and Wellness Center specialists are here to help members of the KMC. They now provide a healthy lifestyle class to teach people the information they need to get their body in tip top shape.
“We teach people about healthier options they can select for themselves when eating,” said Staff Sgt. Anthony Eberly, 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron HAWC flight chief.
By learning these healthier choices, attendees can improve their health. During the class, they are also able to get advice from experts in living a healthier lifestyle.
“The classes are by request,” Eberly said. “We can come out to commander’s calls, flight meetings or lunch and learns. The class is designed to be 20 to 30 minutes long. They can sign up by giving us a call at 480-4292, emailing us or just stopping by.”
During the class, members learn hands on by actually seeing different menus from restaurants. Instructors also bring model food and plates so members are able to see the correct portion sizes of the foods they eat.
“My favorite part of the class is where I show them a food selection, menu and its healthier option,” Eberly said. “The looks I receive after showing the members how many calories are in each food or portion are very interesting because the person is usually surprised.”
Learning about healthier options, a better lifestyle and tips from experts in health can be a step forward in getting in shape. Though this step can be difficult, the HAWC is one phone call away to being a better person.
