In a Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013 photo, overweight service member who failed the so-called "tape test" struggles doing sit ups during a workout where he hopes to improve his conditioning and avoid being dismissed from 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)
