Anti-fat blogging is back

Earlier this year I tried to gain weight as part of my "Anti-Fat Blogging" kick, which was in a direct response to the silly "fat blogging" craze. And I'm glad Jason and Co. have lost weight, good for them. However, my plan backfired when I started exercising regularly and found it impossible to put on a pound. I'm 6'6" and weigh a slim 215 lbs, which puts me at an average weight and BMI for my height.

I've been playing basketball a lot the past few weeks and noticed that I'm getting bounced around by the bigger fellas, so as of today the anti-fat blogging campaign is back on. I had a huge omelette and potatoes at a client meeting this morning, a protein bar at noon and, fearing that wouldn't hold me over , grabbed a chicken salad. A rumor was spreading around the office about a lunch spread from a meeting that was adjourning at 2 PM, but I couldn't wait.

Well, as luck would have it, the tray of sandwiches passed by my office around 1 so I popped out and grabbed a turkey & muenster cheese to go with my salad, pictured below. I don't have the caloric intake specifics but at this point I have to be over 2,000 for the day, however I do have a game tonight and a high metabolism so I will be eating at least two more times today. More to come!

Here's how you gain weight: Alternate between diet sodas and regular sodas. The aspartame in the diet soda will slow down your metabolism and the high fructose corn syrup in the regular soda will be easily transformed into fat. (It works: I'm the same height as you and I weigh 35 pounds more.)
