Serviceman Back From Iraq, Gains Weight, Now Starting Low-Carb

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ September 17, 2006

When you think about the most active, healthy people in the United States today, you can’t help but mention the men and women who are members of the armed forces. These brave Americans put themselves through the rigors of training and use that on the battlefield to protect our country worldwide.

I received an e-mail from a soldier who returned home earlier this year from Iraq and he shared how his party-hearty days have caught up to him in the form of a 70+ pound weight gain. Yikes!

He really wants to get back into shape again as he begins his career as a police officer following college. I offered to him my four steps to weight loss success:

Step one is deciding for yourself that you want to do this.
Step two is finding a plan that will work for you.
Step three is following through on that plan exactly.
Step four is continuing on with that plan for the rest of your life.
