Topic: weight loss for enlisting?
June 18, 2019 / By Cary Question:
I'm 17, have talked to my recruiter and acknowledged that I'm 50lbs over the weight standard for the US Air Force. Now I'm eating healthier, but I feel like I'm not losing the weight fast enough. I have till December (that's what he would like) to get down to weight. I just need some tips to get me there. Maybe from someone who has gone though the same thing? Ps. I chose the Air force because I want to become combat control or security forces, but I'm open to listen to anyone who wishes to sway me to join a different branch

Weight loss results can only be achieved thru the tried & true combination of exercise and eating right (meaning eating healthy, weight loss nutritious food)...........
Doing one without the other will always frustrate your results.
So, in addition to hill climbing, start eating a well-balanced, healthy weight loss diet that cuts down on fat, oil, salt , sugar and banks on fruits & veges, lean meat, good protein and carbohydrates and fiber-rich food.
wrap up any extra food you ve cooked before you sit down to a meal so you re not tempted to get seconds
if food was your only source of pleasure make sure to reconnect with other things you enjoy music sports volunteer work or movies for example
make it a point to use the steps whenever possible use the bathroom on a different floor at work take the stairs at the bus station the airport or the mall
