Following years of having overweight soldiers , the US forces have both a weight and tape test as well as their fitness test to pass. They are far more strict on the application of this and have a scheme of mentors, dietary and fitness advisors and encouragement thru their CoC. critically they cannot promote, nor be recommended for promotion if they are not within guidlines. at certain key career points they are liable to discharge if they cannot achieve the guidelines. Is this too tough for the British?
