I've stated this a few times on the forums about me going in the Airforce for Pararescue. Needless to say I've been working out and I've started gaining weight and here's the funny thing, I hear a lot of people saying, "oh you need to be on a strong consistent diet to gain weight". I've come to say that's mostly untrue, hard work is hard work and I'm a normal eater, I have cut soda's out (except one time on a special occasion) from my overall diet and I don't eat 3 regular meals consistently each day.
I have a question, I've been feeling in better shape and gaining weight yet I'm not on an actual diet. Why do so many people actually recommend those things when you don't need them?
