    Pentagon attacks obesity with new food choices

    "Obama cited a recent army study that says more than one quarter of 17- to 24-year-olds are too overweight to serve in the military."

    UPDATE 1-Pentagon attacks obesity with new food choices | Reuters


    OK.... one question, maybe two.....


    First: Why the Hell is Moochelle Obama targeting ACTIVE military personell with her sill obesity bullshit.
    Seems to me the military is quite fit.... its the idiots who are trying to sign up that are too fat, not active soldiers. :cuckoo:

    Second: What the Fuck does she know??? Is she a nutritionist now???

    Bitch needs to check herself :eusa_hand:

    People who are 'too overweight to serve in the military,' by definition, don't serve in the military.

    Ergo that's not them in the pictures.

    Glad I could help.

    This isn't at all going to go well. BMI is an absolutely destructive method of judging whether someone is overweight or obese. This insane couple is going to cause as much damage as they can before they are dragged from the white house. Muscular men and women cannot maintain themselves on what the government intends to feed them.

    I don't know about Michelle but alot of recruits trying to join the Military fail the weight requirements, which is why Military recruiters have started an exercise program where they work out with their recruits and get them into shape so they can make weight, when I enlisted back in 2000 nothing like that existed, now it has to be because so many people are overweight.

    While I generally dislike the First Lady sticking her nose into military business, I can't say that I'm too upset with this. As someone who has spent the better part of the last decade around the military, I can vouch for how terrible the menu in most Army dining facilities is. The menu's are loaded with fried food, while the stuff that isn't fried is usually fatty and containing little to no nutritional value.

    It never made much sense to me, as a soldier who relies on his fitness level to complete the mission and stay alive, that I could eat healthier at a McDonald's than I could at an Army dining facility. That being said, a program which "will bring more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and food choices that are lower in fat" to the military is will do absolutely nothing to help all of those fat teenagers lose the weight they need to join. It's simply going to give fitness conscious soldiers a chance to eat healthier without having to go off base.

    15 years ago the standards were changed. Millions of people went to bed normal weight and woke up clinicallly obese. A second total foolishness is the use of BMI to determine whether someone is obese or even overweight. BMI uses a height/weight formula and does not take into account body fat percentage. A 6 ft, 250 pound bodybuilder with 4% bodyfat has the same BMI as a 6ft, 250 pound couch potato with a beer belly. Men and women in the military who are fit and muscular will not be able to maintain themselves nutritionally with the new dietary standards. The new standards presupposes an ideal military who look like ballerinas. New recruits will not ONLY be required to lose fat, but muscle mass as well.

    They won't do it! The fittest and strongest will not join such a military. A man, or women, that has spent years working out to build muslcle isn't going to let the government demand they lose it for the dubious privilige of risking their lives. Someone IN the military will not be able to become stronger, the new diet won't allow the building of that kind of muscle.

    This is not going to work out at all well. This government is deliberately fashioning a military intentionally weak.

    Then there is this. The government can propose anything it likes, and even children will throw it away.

    LAUSD Students Roundly Reject Healthier School Lunch Menu « CBS Los Angeles

    Now, the Times reports cartons of plain milk are being thrown away en masse, unopened, along with uneaten entrees. Participation in the school lunch program has dropped by thousands of students, who are ditching lunch and are suffering from hunger-related ailments.

    The children who refuse to eat the crap are suffering from hunger related ailments. Well imagine that. It worked so well with children, let's do it to the military!

    If Im not mistaken, are'nt MRE's loaded with calories for a reason?




    All of what you say may actually be true... but why the heck does Moochelle know about nutrition?
    I say the military should be tasked with feeding the soldiers the best food money can buy, but WTF does the 'First Lady' have to do with that?
    Plus, what does any of the actual soldiers in the field have to do with 'potential' recruits?
    Its not their fault alot of the folks trying to get in are 'overweight'.

    The government must intend that our military go into battle on a diet of salad.

    Hells bells, the enemy won't have to shoot, our forces will surrender for a kebab!
