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.
In that case you are incorrect, I was in far better shape than when I went in. I ate 6 meals a days and went to the gym, 6 days a week

Blows my theory out the water!! You are one of the more active teens I've seen in years. Good on you for doing what you did to stay in shape. I can see why you gained weight. You weren't near as active as before getting into boot camp, which is not the norm. Not to worry, after basic and tech training, life will return to some normalcy and you will take care of what you've gained.

Thanks for your service by the way. I admire young folks that take it upon themselves to serve their country. I have a nephew in the Air Force right now that is graduating from training after basic and is shooting for Special Ops. That is a tough go and I wish him well.

There's no sitting at the computer eating crap and playing video games until 4 a.m. then sleeping till 2 p.m. You don't have any real free time to do what you want====only what they want.
So they have him eating 3 times a day, and working out.

And he's turned into a fatty..? It does not make sense.

Here is a normal day at BMT, wake up at 4:30..PT for an hour. PT consisted of a 30 minute pace 3 mile run every other day and our "strength days" which were about 100 pushups and 100 situps in total.

Then Chow 3 times a day, so we're eating food high in calories so we still have energy while "Licking the biscuit" on top of that eating fast which I heard stretches out your stomach

Thank you, I am currently trying to diet myself until I can get access to a boxing gym; do you think it's too soon to work out with heavy clothing or should I just lose what I can naturally?

How about all of it because that has nothing to do with gaining weight.
cals in vs. cals out

It has nothing to do with 3 meals, being structured, or if the meals are "square."

paloalto00, since you were very active before BT, I assume it's a combination of less calorie expenditure and the extra calorie-dense meals that the military may provide.

....

do you think it's too soon to work out with heavy clothing or should I just lose what I can naturally?
You gained weight because you decreased your activity and may have increased your eating. The pt you did sounds like roughly 5-10% of your normal workload, and I know that you were just shoving everything possible down your throat at chow to prevent starvation headaches and delerium later in the day etc. (my experience anyway, but we were hike-running to/from chow a total of about 6 miles a day with rifles and daypacks so we probably felt the hunger a bit more)

Just go back to doing what you used to do. The weight will come off and you'll return to your healthy weight. Won't happen overnight or anything, but you didn't get fat overnight either.

And heavy clothes? Come on. You know better than that.

I tried to join the air force,but they said I was too hard working.
I tried to join the navy,but they said I was straight

There was only one place to go...

j/k Good luck with the air force, you'll probably get lots of free time after you've finished basic or your trade courses.
