When an entire nation has an obesity problem, it should be no surprise that its army will have one as well. These days, being "too fat to fight" is an increasingly common concern in the U.S. military. According to The Washington Post, obesity is now the leading cause of ineligibility among potential Army volunteers and current military personnel. Indeed, as pressure mounts for the Army to cut its budget, it has begun to dismiss troops who need to cut a few pounds. Here, a look at the Army's weight problem, by the numbers:

Maximum weight, in pounds, for female enlistees

Maximum weight, in pounds, for male enlistees

Troops dismissed from the Army in 2007 for being out of shape
