First let's talk about diet. Diet plays overwhelmingly the largest role in this entire process, and it will inform everything else. The very first step you need to take is to start getting into the habit of knowing how many calories are in the food you eat. You don't need to start acting on this information right away but you do have to at least be informed about the caloric content of the food you eat. The caloric content of food is often times not at all self-evident as you might think, and you will probably find that some of the things you eat that you thought were relatively harmless are absolutely loaded with calories. We want to take a small moment now to tell you first and foremost to discard most of the dietary rumors you've been told. Scientific evidence overwhelmingly points to the fact that when it comes to weight gain, it doesn't matter when you eat, how long you go between eating or the carbs or fat or sugar or any other content that is in the food. There are exceptions here and there, but for broader purposes there is little evidence that any of this has a major impact on how much weight you gain. How many calories you consume is for all intents and purposes the bottom line. So pick up one of the many apps out there to help you track things like this, one them that I use personally is Loseit, it's easy to use and easy to put in all the stuff you've done. But if you ever want to know how many calories are in something just you can always just google it and get an answer in seconds.
