So I want to GAIN weight

bit of rant… but you may have come to expect that from me.

So tired of the usual reply when I say, “I’m trying to gain weight.”

  • “Oh, I wish I had that problem.’
  • “Cry me a river. I gain weight just looking at food.”
  • “That’s insensitive to those of us who struggle to lose weight.”

No, it’s fucking NOT insensitive at all. I don’t judge you. I frankly don’t care what your goals are. Why not? Because they are YOUR goals not mine.

I have a goal to gain. That’s me. You do you. I’m skinny and weak and always have been. I hate it. Part of getting stronger is having more mass. That’s my goal. It’s got NOTHING to do with you. You asked why I track my calories, and I told you. If you don’t like the answer then don’t ask the question.

just pisses me off sometimes.

Sure, I get that other people have other problems, but I ain’t judging your goals. Keep your mouth shut about mine.

    Try eating as high a nutritional value quality foods as possible for all your meals. Try and Consume .75 to 1gram of protein per lean Pound of body weight you want to be, not what you are. 1 gram of carbs and .50 grams of fat then take the totals and divide it into 5 meals. Example want to be 200lb so macros would look like 150 to 200g of protein, 200g of carbs, and 100 of fat per day. Which comes out to 30 to 40g of protein, 40g of carbs, 20g if good fats per meal. And lift daily, try and do whole body lifting every day 5 days a week other 2 days as well as other 5 stretch a lot so muscles can grow, perform, and expand better with less soreness since they will be flexible.

    That’s what I would recommend and do recommend to my clients and athletes as a starting point for weight gain cycles, then adjust as we see how body respinds simce everyine like you said has their own situations and goals. You can email me with questions if needed.
