    Too many fat sailors? :dontknow:

    Fried food on the outs in changes for Navy chow halls
    http://www.navytimes.com/story/military/2015/07/12/chow-hall-changes-are-headed-your-way/29936323/

    Fried food is out and nutritional nagging is in as part of the big changes coming to your chow hall.

    Menus will not see significant changes — not yet, at least. But you can say goodbye to the fried foods you have come to know and love; breaded chicken, French fries, and the like will be baked in state-of-the-art ovens rather than deep fried. Whole milk will be replaced by skim and soy; fruits and vegetables will be on prominent display. The fast line will remain, but its offerings will be cut back.

    And this is just the beginning.

    'A good start'

    The galley here provides a glimpse of the way ahead. Calorie count cards are posted in the chow line. Each food is labeled with green, yellow, or red tags. Utensils used by the servers and on the salad bar ensure exact portion sizes. The salad bar lacks high-calorie options like pepperoni and creamy dressings, but has plenty of sunflower seeds and cranberries. And while a foot-long chili cheese dog could be seen on a couple of tables, baked fish was the unmistakable catch of the day.

    When Navy Times visited the Gerald R. Ford's pre-commissioning crew earlier this year, it was evident many were not thrilled the new [aircraft] carrier class lacks one old school technology: deep fat fryers. Sailors aboard the carrier Abraham Lincoln were thrilled to keep their fryer during refueling and complex overhaul. Other ships have had to surrender their fryers.

    Going green

    The "Go for Green" program operates like a stop light.

    Green represents "premium fuel," defined as whole foods and beverages that are the least processed, low in calories, nutrient dense, and aid in muscle recovery and development. This includes fresh vegetables and fruit, leafy green salads, brown or wild rice, oats, quinoa, baked sweet potato fries, whole-grain pasta, nuts, fish, and chicken or turkey breast without the skin. Green-labeled items should comprise at least half of each meal, according to program guidelines.

    Yellow represents food and drink with some processing as well as healthy and unhealthy nutrients. These are higher in calories, and lower in vitamins and minerals. This includes salads made with iceberg lettuce, fruit with added sugar or syrups, dried fruit, white rice, pasta, baked French fries, pretzels, baked chips, crackers, whole eggs, chicken or turkey breast with the skin, ham, roast beef, processed deli meats, flavored yogurt, reduced-fat cheese, sports drinks and 2-percent milk. Sailors are advised to carefully choose small portions not to exceed one-third of their plates.

    Red represents foods and beverages with the most processing and calories, while lowest in vitamins and minerals. They slow muscle recovery and hinder performance. These include deep fried foods, cream sauces and dressings, most breads and pastries, ground beef, fatty cuts of red meat, beef ribs, pork sausage and bacon, hot dogs, salami, bologna, cheese, ice cream, energy drinks, coffee, whole milk, and sweetened beverages to include juices and sodas. Sailors are advised to rarely choose these, and take them in smaller portions.

    The actual fit, responsible sailors have to be pissed about this. You don't need to eliminate junk food from your diet to have a great physique. And you can become obese eating only health food in a caloric surplus. All you need to know is your daily calorie requirement and eat accordingly, it's not that difficult.

    Not to mention that it's based on junk nutritional science to begin with. Coffee, red meat and fats absolutely do not slow down recovery, and are certainly better nutritionally than chips, crackers, and fruit with added sugars that are in the yellow category.

    Treat everyone like children who aren't capable of thinking for themselves and make indoctrination sessions on political correctness a core focus of training. Going to attract great recruits that way geniuses. The DoD will need to be completely rebuilt when we have another competent president.

    Headline might as well be "Navy No Longer Wants Blacks and Southerners".

    Robin, they should issue 12 warm almonds per week to each sailor. That would solve the obesity problem in the navy.

    Navy ships are too safe for them. Gotta funnel them towards Army and Marines, so they can be the first boots on the ground.

    I like how they dumb it down with the stoplight colors to let them know what's ok to eat.
    Then after dinner they trust them to be smart enough to fire off Tomahawk missiles.

    Something like 90% of military personnel could be categorized as "IN THE REAR WITH THE GEAR". But yes, it would be the safest and most comfortable I'd say.
