Founded SoldierFuel energy bars

After discovering that civilian Army bureaucrats were pumping dangerous trans fat into Soldiers via their rations, I pioneered the movement to end trans fat in troop feeding.  My brothers and I became the Army’s R&D partner in performance nutrition, and we created the healthier (and zero trans-fat) Soldier Fuel energy bar (which is now featured in the U.S. Special Operations Forces Nutrition Guide and used by militaries worldwide).
