In a Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013 photo, a group of sailors and Marines who failed the so-called “tape test” are led by an instructor on a three mile run as they work to improve their fitness and remain in the military, at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego. Doctors say a number of military personnel are turning to liposuction to remove excess fat from around the waist so they can pass the Pentagon’s body fat test. Some service members say they have no other choice because the Defense Department’s method of estimating body fat is weeding out not just flabby physiques but bulkier, muscular builds. A number of fitness experts and doctors agree, and they’re calling for the military’s fitness standards to be revamped. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)
