What part of "He's getting proper rest, eating 3 square meals a day and his day is structured" don't you get??? You put that together and most young people who are thin are going to gain weight.

If he's just finished basic, I'd say he's either still a teen to mid 20's at best. I've raised kids into their 20's and beyond and have tons of nieces and nephews that age. As a rule, they do not eat wholesome meals and grab food on the run. They also tend to burn the candle at both ends as in lack of sleep and constantly on the go until they finally burn out and crash. Having a structured routine is going to change things for them and their metabolism.
