No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t gain weight. I spent several hundred dollars on powders and supplements from GNC. I did the same exercises week after week, but never paid attention to sets or reps. I didn’t eat the necessary foods to support my goals. Let’s face it, as delicious as foods like Mac & Cheese and Pizza Rolls are, they’re not the most conducive foods for building muscle.
Secretly, I had a weight bench and some dumbbells in my mom’s bedroom. I thought in order to be a “real man” you needed to weigh at least 175lbs and have muscle. That was a far cry from the 135lbs frame I had which consisted mostly of skin, bone, and organs.
Fast forward to my post-college life (nothing really exciting happened here). I moved to Washington DC, started selling craft beer for breweries like Sixpoint and Bell’s, and built a nice little seven year career in it. That weight I could never gain? Yeahhhhh it packed itself on in a big way. 70lbs of fat to be exact. This was NOT the kind of weight gain I was hoping to achieve.
I felt like I had the pieces to the puzzle, but didn’t know how to put them together. After years of experimentation and lots of learning, I finally found the winning combination:
