The WACH Nutrition Care Division
The Weed Army Community Hospital Nutrition Care Division (WNCD) on Fort Irwin provides information and outreach in support of Fort Irwin Soldiers and beneficiaries to include safe, wholesome food production, nutrition education and counseling, and nutrition consultation to installation commanders and the community in support of readiness and health promotion.

In order to improve and optimize nutrition of the local population, the NCD promotes and conducts individual and group nutrition assessments and coordinates care for preventative health and disease management. Programs include general nutrition education and specific problems such as obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, failure to thrive, and others.

About the Army Body Composition Program (weight loss program)
All Soldiers enrolled in the ABCP will complete the Fit for Performance (FFP) Program. FFP is the new weight loss program which is being implemented at all military treatment facilities. The program consists of six group counseling sessions covering topics such as planning meals, mindful eating, performance nutrition and the psychology of weight loss. For more information regarding the ABCP please review AR 600-9.

Nutrition counseling
Individual appointments are available for specific nutrition needs or medical conditions and are accepted by referral from your health care provider or self-referral.

Performance nutrition classes
Individual and group/team nutrition counseling and education to enhance the performance of Soldier Athletes. Whether it's training for a marathon, the APFT test or weight room gains, getting the proper nutrition is the key to improving your performance.

Community classes
The WACH Registered Dietitian is available to talk to community groups or events on any nutrition topic desired such as healthy snacks for children, weight management, eating on the go, and quick and healthy cooking demonstrations.
