One concern of military leaders is that too many recruits are now too fat to fight. Childhood obesity is rampant 75% of adults will be overweight in just 10 years. Our kids are growing up on processed food, fast food, junk food and sodas. Our school cafeterias are filled with fatty processed foods. 27% of Americans ages 17 to 24 are too fat to fight. Obesity costs the military billions of dollars in job absenteeism and health care spending, and has been linked to poor performance. You would think politicians would be screaming about this rather than a parents right to feed their kids cookies! Many Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss clients have found the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine’s (PCRM) Vegetarian Starter Kit to be useful. Congratulations to PCRM for their initiative with the Military Vegetarian Starter Kit.
Too Fat to Fight: Plant-Based Diet Could Slim Down Military Recruits

But in a letter to the armed forces, PCRM offered recruiters Vegetarian Starter Kits to combat obesity. “It is not too late for the overweight young people showing up at your recruiting stations,” writes PCRM nutrition education director Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., in her letter to Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “Instead of turning away a quarter of your potential recruits because they are too heavy, why not arm them with information on how to improve their health?”
