A Five Paragraph Order for Weight Loss

The Five Paragraph Order is a style of organizing information about a military situation for a unit in the field. It is an element of United States Army, United States Marine Corps and United States Navy Seabees of small unit tactics, and similar order styles are used by military groups around the world. An order specifies the instruction to a unit in a structured format that makes it easy to find each specific requirement.


Situation

You are overweight. Fat, even. You are out of shape. Fit is no longer something you can be described as. If you continue down this road, you will live an uncomfortable life and possibly die from weight-related complications.

Mission

To reverse the unhealthy lifestyle and regain rudimentary fitness

Execution

  1. Research Whole30 and the Paleo Diet.
  2. Clean out your pantry and refrigerator of all non-compliant ingredients
  3. Purchase whole foods: meat, vegetables, fruit, and nuts.
  4. Set a start date and do it.
  5. Complete Whole30 and transition to Paleo

Administration and Logistics

Keep a log or diary. Do not weigh yourself daily on the Whole30. Ensure you have the appropriate Whole30 compliant ingredients which are available on the outsides of every grocery store; meat, fruit, and vegetables. More difficult to find ingredients for Paleo may be found online.

Foods to avoid
  • Processed sugar and artificial sweeteners
  • Grains
  • Legumes
  • Dairy
  • Soy
  • Alcohol
Acceptable foods
  • Meat
  • Vegetables
  • Fruit (within reason)
  • Nuts

Command and Signal

Continue reading about health and fitness. Continue reading about Whole30 and the Paleo Diet. Reach out to others who have adopted the same lifestyle. Online communities are welcoming and a good place to start. Reach out locally to others and encourage them to adopt a healthy lifestyle by showing them your successes.


I can’t lay it out any easier than this. I have set forth the mission; it is on you to carry it out. If you need more information, let me know and I will get it for you.
