One of the fundamental facets of our mission at American Dream U is the provision of various free resources to those who have served – veterans, servicemen and women, their spouses, and their families. Through these resources, we are able to provide unparalleled guidance, support, and tools in the pursuit of success in the civilian world – through these resources, we are able to give back to our nation’s heroes in person and online throughout the world. In wrapping up 2016, we at ADU have chosen our top 5 free resources of the past year and discuss them below! We hope you find these resources useful!
- A special veteran edition of Charlie Hoehn’s phenomenal book on fighting stress and anxiety, Play it Away, is available to veterans for free through American Dream U. Download your copy today!

What are some helpful workout plans?My news yrs resolution is to eat healthy and exercise more. Its a new year and its time to start some serious weight loss. Any helpful Ideas, maybe some workout plans or healthy rec8ies&#p230; Or just any helpful info would be great! =) Thanks a BUNCH!
Sorry for the delayed response to your comment! Here’s what we recommend in regards to eating healthy. Start with whole foods only. Make sure you’re getting in lots of vegetables and healthy fats. Stay away from processed grains and added sugars. Drink lots of water 🙂
In regards to some good workout plans, we recommend to start out “slow.” Don’t commit to working out 6 days a week right away, you’ll get burnt out and frustrated. Try this workout plan that you can do at home – https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/beginner-body-weight-workout-burn-fat-build-muscle/.
With exercising, we like to make it a lifestyle and not so much a chore. Get outside and go for a brisk walk more often. Play some sports or throw a frisbee with friends and/or family. Start with simply doing as many pushups and crunches before bed each night. Build momentum and then work your way up!
Hope this helps 🙂
