Abstract Navy personnel who fail to meet Physical Readiness Test (PRT) and body-weight standards are subject to administrative sanctions, not to mention their risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) because of obesity. We hypothesized that a standardized, multifaceted, lifestyle modification approach to weight loss could be implemented onboard ship and that it would more effectively enable compliance with weight and physical readiness standards, reduce risk factors for CVD, and result in lower obesity-related expenses than the current command-level remedial program. This research has the potential to affect Navy health promotion programs and policy, the health and well-being of its personnel, and the Navys ability to meet mission requirements.
