Obesity 5As At The Armed ForcesFriday, October 3, 2014
As I discussed in a previous post, members of the Armed Forces are not immune to weight-gain – if anything, the considerable stressors encountered by military personnel make them perhaps even more prone to weight gain than civilians.
And, as for civilians, there are no easy solutions. Once the weight is on, military personnel face the same challenges in losing weight and keeping it off (if indeed their excess weight is affecting their health) as everybody else.
I look forward to an exciting discussion with the medical personnel on base about how best to apply the 5As of Obesity Management in their practice.
