Everyone has a personal health story. Some people can’t lose weight, some lose it with ease. Some people look at a dumbbell and add muscle, others dedicate years to a weight lifting routine and barely put on five pounds. The Skinny Guy’s Guide to Gaining Weight is a beginner’s guide for sorting through the noise and adding healthy weight. It is a product of my own personal struggles and helps readers get to the core of not just adding muscle, but understanding the why behind wanting to gain weight.
The Skinny Guy’s Guide to Gaining Weight is broken down into four simple sections that can be read in a few quick minutes. The book was intentionally created as a 4-week program with a short read and actionable item for each day. When I say program, I do not mean false promises and ridiculous claims such as “15 pounds in 15 days!” or anything of the sort. The 4-week program means 4-weeks of deep thought, thorough research, and coming up with a plan that is tailored to you in order to have the best opportunity at success.
Most meaningful progress in life involves calculated, small, and consistent progress over a period of time. The Skinny Guy’s Guide to Gaining Weight recognizes this truth and purposely delivers short, clear-cut messages each day so that the reader can do his due diligence. This avoids the quick-fix path and encourages buy-in for the long haul.
Should the reader become engulfed in a particular topic, it is encouraged to take an extra day or two to find the specific answers that are being sought out. The Skinny Guy’s Guide to Gaining Weight aims to take a minimal stress approach, a topic that is explored in the text.
The four sections of the book include:
- Week One: The Tough Questions
- Week Two: Nutrition
- Week Three: Exercise
- Week Four: Sleep and Stress Management
As you can tell by looking at the section titles, a general theme of the book is simplification. When we try to do too much and nitpick at the tiny details, we tend to lose focus on the overall goal. People very often forget to make the broad brush strokes in favor of making fine ones. Sure you can make some progress this way, but the majority of the painting is left incomplete and you often walk away in frustration.
On a personal note, writing The Skinny Guy’s Guide to Gaining Weight was a major accomplishment in my life. It helped me realize that in order to make the greatest progress and achieve the greatest results, I need to look within and align my goals with my values. Comparing myself to others, trying to duplicate what others are doing, and blindly following the advice of both bro’s and pros, left me with years of frustration and minuscule progress.
Reader beware: The Skinny Guy’s Guide to Gaining Weight is not for everyone, and that’s the point. “Skinny Guys” are a minority of their own and are often a misunderstood bunch. People frequently insult skinny guys (whether they know it or not) by saying they wish they had their problem or telling them they “need to eat some burgers.” Being a skinny guy deeply effects all realms of health: physical, mental, and emotional.
The Skinny Guy’s Guide to Gaining Weight helps readers in all of these areas and puts them on the path to personal comfort, confidence, and freedom. Writing this actionable guide was and is my way of sharing this message of freedom with other guys who want to gain weight for the wrong reasons. These guys usually are willing to try almost anything to do it, including sacrificing personal health. The Skinny Guy’s Guide to Gaining Weight empowers readers to seek out the best answers for themselves rather than force feeding a specific plan down their throats.
