Brief Summary:
Screened subjects will be tested for hidden food allergies. Subjects will eliminate all food that showed leukocyte reactions for 90-days. Subjects will then also be invited to use the Willis Exercise protocol. Body composition testing and Body Mass Index calculation will be accomplished at enrollment and after completion of the 90-day study.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Obesity Behavioral: Food Allergy Elimination + Willis Exercise

Detailed Description:
Subjects will first be screened for cardiovascular pathologies and then tested for hidden food allergies. After the results subjects will eliminate all food that showed leukocyte reactions for 90-days. Subjects will then also be invited to use the Willis Exercise protocol (Aerobic-surge exercise > 75% max heart rate, for 2-minutes, 5/day. Body composition testing and Body Mass Index calculation will be accomplished at enrollment and after completion of the 90-day study.
