HI, My name is Nicklas, I'm 20 years old and living in Denmark.

How did I get interested in diet and exercise?

When I then started at HTX (similar to college) which involved 8 hours a day in front of a computer, drinking on average 2 liters of coke every day + random snacks/junk food.
This life style ofc hat its effect on my figure. So when I graduated I ended up on a total weight of 88kg (~195 lbs).

Since I had planned to do my part of the danish conscription (just basic military training ranging from 4-12 months), I figured I had to get in shape so that I actually could see it through.
So 3 months before heading to boot camp, I decided to quit the coke, most of the candy, junk food etc. and started to do some running 2-3 times a week.

I ended up loosing maybe 8 kg in that period of time.

Then the days of the army kicked in.
4 months of endless reps of sit-ups, lunges, squats, pull ups and ofc the billion different push-ups.
Furthermore I mostly acted as the platoon radio operator or medic (which involved carrying a medic satchel and a "one time use bazooka", so I ran around with a 20 kg long range radio on my back with all my normal combat gear on ofc.

So 4 months of running around with 20-30 kgs on my back doing again endless amount of running / kneeling.

Even though we ate between 2,5-4 kgs of food every day (we paid per 100 gram of food). I ended up loosing yet another 5 kgs plus gaining the ability to do 50 reps of 60 lbs weighted lunges / 60 pushups with ease.

After ending my small army career, I realized what your body actually can withstand and adjust to, i started weight lifting with one of my friends 3 times a week.

3 months have passed, I haven't really lost much weight since then. But my overall figure have improved by vast amounts.

Since the army I haven't been doing any cardio training. So right now I am maintaining my weight through weight training and building greater muscle mass to force my BMR up.

Hungry eyes
So let me get this right (Koko), you are telling me that eating something at night will make me gain weight when its generally accepted that weight gain/loss i all about calories in / out in a day?

As far as I remember it doesn't really matter when you are eating as long as you stay below the set amount of calories a day.

Further more by eating at night/before you go to bed you, give your body something to work with through out the night, therefore preventing the body from taking resources from fx muscles.

Not eating for 10-11 hours (8 pm to 7 am) doesn't really seem healthy in my mind.
So you want people to eat a salad before going to bed? how much does that give your stomach to work with? I usually just eat some tuna as a snack (gives me great sense of satiety).

Please keep in mind all comments are made from knowledge gained from the web/books (no actual education within the field of nutrition).
