A Carrollton, TX police officer suspended for being too overweight to perform his job has retired honorably, the police department told Personal Trainer Food Blog Tuesday.Cook is now employed as a police officer with Dallas County Schools, according to his LinkedIn page.
As news of Officer Cory Cook’s suspension broke last July, Personal Trainer Food™ offered free food to him and any other North, Central and Southeast Texas police officer who was obese and needed to lose weight.
Cook did not respond to Personal Trainer Food’s™ offer, but other law enforcement did. Those officers successfully lost an average of 20 lbs in just one month.
“We understand everyone’s weight loss journey is different,” Personal Trainer Food™ founder and CEO Mike Starks said. “We wish nothing but the best of success and health for Officer Cook.”
Additionally, two other North Texas police officers were part of a test group for Personal Trainer Food’s™ new RECON men’s program, which launches October 20. That group also lost an average of 20 lbs in the first month.
