Too fat to fight: Pentagon grapples with obesity epidemic

Maybe they should do like the fashion industry, if you can’t beat them (and you still want to sell them your shit) join them.

If there is a god, please, please, I beg you… don’t let Tess Holiday become a Victoria’s Secret model.

It probably just a matter of time, Victoria’s Secret sales have been declining for years and the dog pile of complaints that they don’t represent real women is getting deep.

I’ll miss the incorrectness on this one as I don’t apparently find real women very attractive.

Not sure why the Pentagon should grapple with the obesity epidemic. They should simply set the standard for a soldier and stick to it. If someone is too fat or too out of shape or too weak, etc. , they don’t make it.

They did, that is the problem, they can’t find enough soldiers that can pass.

The son of my wife’s cousin joined the Air Force about two years ago. He was about 10 pounds overweight a week before he was to go in. His father had him working out on a treadmill and fasting right up until the day he was to join. They accepted him so he must have lost the weight and just barely squeaked by.
