    You can eat whatever you wish but in moderation. Never gorge yourself at any one sitting, I always leave a little bit hungry..well most of the time. The American people eat large and over bloated portions this isn't necessary, being a little bit hungry is a great calorie burner.

    Non the less tryreading, you are absolutely correct as well.

    10 weeks of boot camp tends to take off most of the blubber.

    I'm sure if it becomes a major issue, they'll just add stuff to boot camp to reduce the weight of the overweight trainees.
    Maybe a pre-bootcamp?



    That said, anyone who really want's to join the military could probably take care of that issue on their own...

    You're right, but the other side of that is if you eat the right foods, you can eat as much as you want and not gain weight, and stay healthy.

    Let's also not forget the importance of regular exercise. I can perhaps get away with eating portions and amounts of meat that others can't due to being a serious athlete, but the key is to not take in more calories than you burn off. If you are sedentary, you have to be careful how much you eat ... when you burn off 1000-2000 calories a day just from your exercise program, you can take in more...

    I think fat people would be good for the army, they can take more bullets.

    I actually didn't find the physical regimin of boot camp to be all that difficult. Some of these kids today would need far more than ten weeks of basic to take off the amount of blubber they increasingly have...

    it's not the physical training that kicks a boots ass, it's when he F's up and then the he or she gets thrashed along with the entire platoon is what wears a boot out.
