I started at 205lbs and decided I was sick of being incredibly lethargic after meals. I was sick of the hypertension. I was sick of the fluctuating blood sugar levels. I was sick of that fluffy feeling after wheat (you know what I mean, right? Puffy, rank, etc.)
I read Wolff's piece, started smashing the oilve oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, munching all sorts of meat and doing a bit of P90X. Cut out refined sugars, deserts and other goofy modern trivialities. The weight just sort of dissolved:
I'm now left with sort of with more than what I wanted to initially achieve. I appear to be in fairly good shape, albeit a little slim for my liking. The health benefits have been the main focus - I really feel on top of the world. [Note: I actually was hospitalized with a kidney stone the other week - this is a whole other topic altogether...However the doctors kept commenting on my very healthy heart rate :-/]
My question is this: What can I now add to increase weight/mass? I know heavy weights etc., I am going to sort that out myself. I am just having problems finding sigfnificant nutritional tools - I don't think I could eat anymore lard/oils/fats if I tried. I pretty much am a bar of kerrygold grass-fed butter. I eat tonnes of good meat. My calories are sky high, but nothing sticks on unless I eat pizza & croisants (and I'm not going back to that...ever). How unacceptable are sweet potatoes? Can I start ramping these bad boys up even though Cordain isn't the biggest fan? I've heard word of cassava? I'd really appreciate any advice or experiences. Being in university makes things a little less flexible, but I can find a way around most hurdles. I just want some healthy stodge lest I drop below that eerie and undesired 165lb level. Thanks in advance.
