Two-Year Mission: A Pretty Good Weight Loss Program

I know many missionaries are worried about gaining weight on their mission (especially in the MTC), but I suspect there are far more missionaries who end up losing weight than gaining it. Usually, this isn't a problem unless the weight loss is due to parasites or you're an offensive lineman.


  1. You think that more missionaries lose weight than gain? Based on my experience (5 brothers), that is not the case!

  2. Jena, of your five brothers, two of them served in the sausage-rich countries of Germany and Austria, so your experience might not be a typical experience.

  3. I would take offense at that but I'm too busy eating my Bosner and Topfenstrudel.
