This blog post is about the things you can do to gain weight. Many of the articles on the Internet and the popular books tell you how to eat. This is my attempt to reverse engineer the weight loss formula. According to scientific studies, in order to gain one pound, you will only need to consume 3500 extra calories of food. That should not be too hard. As a matter of fact, I think you could eat with the smartest people in the world and gain a few extra pounds. After all, you might need the extra pounds in case the recession takes hold and you need to live off the extra weight you gained! So my goal is to help you pack on a few pounds of prosperous fat to help boost the economy. With my secret formula, I guarantee you results of 0.5-2 lbs a week which will give you about 25-60 lbs minimum weight gain in a year. There will be more of you to love in a year. Let’s get stated.

My mom makes the most amazing Christmas cake in the world; it’s been a tradition in our family for as long as I can remember. First, she mixes up a light, fluffy, vanilla cake mix, pours it into the pans and then pops it in the oven. After it’s been baked, she stacks the cake in two layers with whipped cream spread generously between each layer. She then pours on red and green Jell-O, which gets soaked up inside the cake. Next, whipped cream is smothered all the way around for frosting. And finally, she garnishes it with red and green sprinkles. A few red and green-striped candy canes are stuck in the top as the finishing touch, and off it goes to the refrigerator so it can be served chilled later.
