Dieting....To Gain Weight!

I have always dieted to lose weight. Though I have never had a weight problem, I have had the need to shed pounds. As a thin guy, my ideal weight even at 6'1" tall is a svelte 165 lbs. The problem is that I hate the way I look at 165 lbs. My clothes fit better, my waist band isn't tight (at a 34" size). The problem is I am too thin. I look like a refugee from some third world nation.

So after years of dieting and exercising in order to lose weight, trim down, and lose fat around my midsection, I recently decided it was time to gain weight. But not just gain weight, the right kind of weight.

To do that first I needed a good strength and muscle building program. Enter Strong Lifts 5x5!

  • 3 large eggs
  • splash of whole milk
  • 1 tomato (chopped)
  • chopped green pepper (about a 1/4 cup)
  • chopped onion (I use white, also a 1/4 cup)
  • handful of fresh spinach
Beat eggs, add whole milk. Add tomato, green pepper, and onion. Add dash of salt, and pepper. Put into buttered frying pan and let it cook eggs through. Put spinach in middle and fold over. Continue cooking until omelet is cooked through, spinach will wilt slightly. Add some cheddar cheese to top if you that is your preference.
