I serve as a Sar-El volunteer several times a year. Ive been on combat and logistical bases. Frankly, my reaction to the food is "I cant beleieve we are sending our kids to fight on this diet". Way too much "Shoko" chocalate in the AM. Not enough fiber. You dont need to spend a lot to eat healthy and i would like the IDF to revisit their "diet". I read in the JerPost not long ago that programs are being started to work with reservists who are tending to be very out of shape to the point of obesity for some.

I'm 57 and found myself in better shape than some of the young conscripts and many of the career men and jobniks. (I cant speak about the Sayeret folks because Sar-El does not go to their bases. I hope they eat a better diet.)
