    I've only ever had the one with the liquid part. I've asked my mum to get the one without next time, because I think it tastes better. And now I know it's higher in protein - bonus
    Yes, I agree : ) Mine looks like this (without any additions):

    WP_20131018_004.jpg

    20g protein/100g : 3

    I think you'll be OK! You seem to be very studious, so you're more than likely just nervous.

    Huh, maybe someone actually took something away from it all nice job!
    It was quite easy tbh : ) I think I'll get B+ or A- : 3 I didn't mess up reactions and stuff. Only 'counting' part could go wrong.

    Btw, do your parents eat primal?
    My mother eats ALMOST primal, I mean she sometimes has a slice of bread (like once a month - really rare) and some sweetened milk products. But my dad... he is grain lover. He eats a lot of bread, tons of cookies etc., pancakes. But he is looking really good.. Idk how it's possible... Maybe because he loves sports..

    Maybe add some cacao powder melt them together...cheesy chocolatey sludge ;P
    Today supper will be cc with mango, strawberries and cocoa powder ; 3 Can't wait any second longer !

    Aww take some honey for your sore throat. *apparently* it works but I cannot personally attest :P and like I said before, I'm sure you'll be OK for your chemistry exam. As for languages, your English is excellent. Anyway, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!
    Thank you so much. I feel better today. Since I started eating paleo/primal I haven't been ill even once xd So around 9 months without visiting other doctor than my allergologist ; 3

    Always love looking at your CC photos Adrian - you truly are CC King ;D
    Thank you! I love your photos too !

    Good luck on ur chemistry exam, I actually do love chemistry bt after biology , BIO IS THE BEST !! :P
    AND U DID IT AGAIN!!
    Im drooling all over my phone

    Oh and the pics ait would be better say 3 or 2 weeks apart bec u could then see actual progress id prfer 3 weeks. Bt take one nw and post it with the beach pic
    Thank you, as I said before it wasn't as hard as I expected : ) Ok I made some pics today (aren't best quality.. but.. ) and there is some progress. Also I checked my weight today - it's up - 68,5 kg - I gained around 0,5 kg in last three weeks. But my waist didn't change. I still wear 28/29 size (around 75 cm).

    Tommorow I'll squat after bench and I hope it will be better. I've read smth about programmes.. And I think about 5 x 5. Maybe it would be better : 3 But I had to learn chemistry (test tommorow) so I haven't decided yet.
    Keep working at it, dude! You have my best wishes! You like her, go for her - show her how awesome you are.

    5x5 is a pretty good programme. To be honest, I'd recommend "IceCreamFitness Novice Programme". Try googling, it's very good.

    [QUOTE=Adrian;1340603]
    I need some new ideas! I consider adding some strawberries and honey maybe.. But we'll see : 3/QUOTE]

    Can confirm both of those are amazing with CC.

    I see what you mean.

    Again, as I said - it's not really necessary at all. Hell, with the amount of CC you eat daily I'm willing to wager you get 200g+ proteinz a day, anyway Besides, CC > Protein powder any day.

    DO IT.

    Activity level + height and weight + food intake = body composition. Odds are his intake, regardless if from primal foods are not, are just enough to meet his needs.

    Congratulations, Adrian, on your amazing progress!


    You look great in your latest pic! A hell of a lot better than before - you look way too skinny in that first pic, your ribs are showing and everything. But now? Now you look strong. You look strong, look like you've been training hard and eating like a King (of CC). If you look this great now, I'm just trying to imagine how awesome you'll look at that goal you set of 75kg.

    You've made all kindzzzz of muscle gainz. I'm incredibly happy for you - keep it up!

    You know you always make me want CC, regardless of the time of day or how full I am? Cheers :P Delicious eats as always!

    Have a great day, Adrian! Keep the excellent work!

    That looks amazing how much do you eat per day?
    Lol, today I had 0,5 kg xD

    And how do u make the cocoa with gelatin , when I tried to make coffee with gelatin and milk I got a amazing layer of foam on top but then there was a disgusting layer of oil/water have no idea , between the foam and coffe ...long story short... bleh !!
    I add 1 teaspoon of gelatin and one of raw cocoa, then stir it, afterwards I add hot water and I keep stiring it! ; 3 Simple

    Paleo really does help with illness! Before, when I was eating CW and training constantly, I was ill 6-10 times peryear, and sometimes quite badly. Now if I feel unwell, it lasts maybe a day or two. No illness. (Yet. Touch wood)
    I was ill every two weeks.. And had terrible headaches sometimes ; / Now my dad has them very often. He wakes up in the middle of the night and his brain is 'exploding'. He sometimes has stomach problems during those headaches. Doctors don't know how to help him ; /

    Aw thanks, but they're nowt compared to yours, shadowknight's, or EG's ;/
    All of your pictures are great : 3 I love ur omelettes ! Really... But I'll stick to my hb eggs as I really can't transport omelette from pan on the plate : )

    Strongly agree with EG. :P

    I wouldnt dismiss your progress! You're looking really good and strong :-) keep it up!

    Foods are looking delicious again can't wait to see your supper!
    Thank you for your nice words ebrady and EG : 3 I really appericate them and feel really great reading them : )

    5x5 is a pretty good programme. To be honest, I'd recommend "IceCreamFitness Novice Programme". Try googling, it's very good.
    I looked it up and it seems to be reasonable : 3 I will think about my future workouts tommorow (during a rest day). Thank you for recommendations!

    DO IT.
    Till the end of this school year (June 2014) I'll have to decide if I'd like to study abroad. We'll see ! : D

    Congratulations, Adrian, on your amazing progress!

    It's awful...glad you don't have that any more. Has your dad considered a gluten intolerance? most people do so much better without anyway; and with those symptoms...
    But it happens like once a week, and he eats 4+ slices of bread everyday xd

    Day Seventy Seven

    Hello there : )

    In the morning I've been shopping for an hour with parents. I bought turkey leg (pics below), some apples, turkey headcheese and some other cold meats (pork ones). Then I had my first CAE preparation lessons. Teacher is very nice guy - Peter. He is Welsh and is around 30 y.o. I'm the youngest "kid" in the group - the rest is 20+ xd. There are 20 of us, and we'll have 4 hours of language practice each Saturday. I think exam will take place in February or March. It would really help me to find a good job/study abroad. I've been watching universities exchange programmes, and there is one to Auckland! SHADOWKNIGHT YOU BETTER PREPARE XD But I would have to get a scholarship, as studying fees are really high. We'll see.
    Also I forgot to post my workout yesterday. I'm proud of my deadlifts!

    deadlifts: 80KG! 5x5
    bench press: 40 kg 10 x 5
    squats: 60kg 8/10 x 5
    hanging leg raises: 20 x 5
    dumbbell flys: 16 kg 10 x 5

    Tommorow I'll hit the gym again. As Shadowknight has suggested - I'll start Jason Blaha's Ice Cream Fitness 5x5 Novice Program | Muscle & Strength this workout : )

    Foods today (without supper YET):

    breakfast:

    WP_20131019_001.jpg

    CC with banana, strawberries and cocoa

    lunch:

    WP_20131019_002.jpg

    turkey head cheese and apple

    dinner:

    WP_20131019_003.jpg

    roasted turkey leg, roasted potatoes with thyme and roasted pumpkin

    dessert:

    WP_20131019_005.jpg

    apple - really sour and hard kind, my favourite ones. They are mainly used for baking apple crumbles etc, because they don't contain a lot of juice and aren't too soft ; 3

    I kind of skipped forward in this thread to the end to see whether you've progressed in ur eating habits. It looks like youre eating great quality food...but sheesh do you eat like a bird haha if youre still interested in putting on mass and u rlly find it difficult to take in more solid food, id suggest using liquid calories. This has probably already been covered but yeah...raw milk, whey protein, glucose powders, fruit, more starch like sweet potato,potato,plantains, and more protein and healthy fats like tallow and lard. It seems like your trainings greatly improved since the beginning, but if u want to rlly put on some size u have to eat more, not to mention that at ur age youre in the perfect mode for growth, your body NEEDS more calories. Hope everything turns out well! don't make the mistake I made at ur age and eat like a bird! loll

    You do look lots better in the second photo, your arms look better with some muscle and I like not seeing your ribs.
    Those hard apples will probably make a pretty good applesauce
    If you are eating like a bird it is a very big one like an ostrich : ), you are gaining weight steadily and eating lots in my eyes. But then I am not a young male : p

    You look fantastic in your pics, have you thought about writing up your story and submitting it to Mark for the Friday success story? You are a great inspiration and I'm sure he would love to hear from a young person instead of us old farts all of the time!
