Lebell you are such a meany...
I have two different ways of increasing weight. The simple one: I use the same weight. When I can do all 5 reps in all 5 sets I incerase the weight. I use that for exercises where the incerases are bigger, like weighted pullups and dips. For exercises that I can make smaller incerases and that hit more, bigger muscles (I put weight on easy, which is something I try and avoid) like squats and deadlifts, I increase the weight with every set. So for the first set I might use 200lbs, then 205 for the 2nd, 210 for the 3rd, ect. But then the next workout I would start at 205, then do 210 and the last set would be 5lbs heavier than the last set of the precious workout.

Kettlebells, like most things in life, tend to improve when you purchase items which were designed with due regard to quality as opposted to price point. Wal-Mart is good for tube socks, some home electronics and not much else.
You can grab a good KB off ebay for cheap. Try to get the dragondoor brand as they are the best IMO. At 217 lbs you need a 45 pounder. That 35 pounds **** is for old men or people with a serious conditioning problem. (By the way, shame on you Plissken.)
It is worth your while to buy Pavel Tsatsouline's books. If you're a ****, bittorrent. The Dragondoor.com forum is full of great advice, often from Pavel himself.
Other than that, swings ************. If you can't afford a proper KB, use a sandbag like the Marines. That fucking sand had better be wet though. Only homos swing sandbags full of dry sand.
Consider pullups. Get a 15$ bar and use it. A lot.
You eat like ****, don't you? Knock it the **** off.

Thank you GOON, I will go from tuna every once in a while while fucking around with snickers to full dietary nazification with spinach, acai supplements, water only, and chicken or fish as meats.
Don't bother with diets you can't stick too, and get the diet down first before you start laying down all kinds of money for supplement.
