Maintaining a Healthy Weight

Adam is 5′11″ tall and weighs 190 pounds. He is a single father with two teenage sons. The commute to and from his software development job takes about 90 minutes. He likes his coworkers and the work environment and is happy that his workplace provides a cafeteria so he doesn’t have to bring a lunch. He believes it is important for the family to have a “hot meal” every night, but he mostly relies on frozen entrees or take-out to accomplish this. Frequently, the evening meal is from the drive-through window of a fast food restaurant on the way to his sons’ sport events. Adam is an avid football and basketball fan and spends many hours watching televised games. In his spare time, he is restoring an old car with his sons.
