Primal Journal - Krzyskillz67
I joined a couple of months ago and just couldn't stay on track due to the holidays and with tons of school work. But now I'm starting a journal which will hopefully help me stay on this diet and not cheat. I made many changes to my lifestyle because of this website and all the info Mark provides which is awesome.
So some background info on me. I'm a 16 year old male weigh about 130 lbs 5'8. My goals are to bulk up a little, I need to put on some muscle. Also I would for this diet to help clear my skin, because it sucks have acne. Lastly I'm trying to live a pain stress free life, the last three years of my life has been brutal. I currently just had my third knee surgery, which will hopefully be my last. Arthritis and Lyme's disease ate away all my cartilage in my knee which is really painful.
So for today I had:
B: 2 eggs with peppers, mushrooms with 3 slices of bacon
L: bison burger with slice of duck bacon, kale, turnip greens, and zucchini
Snack: 3 hardboiled quail eggs
D: pork chop with dark leafy salad greens
As for exercise, I had Physical therapy for my knee. Which is mostly exercises for that one leg plus 10 minutes on the bike. Also I did 3 sets of 10 : Pushups, rows, overhead pushups, pullups and planks.
That's pretty much it for today.
sup skillz? I too suffer form post knee surgery but all I had was my ACL. I am hoping that this whole healthy eating thing will clear some things up there. Hopefully it will for you too! (Sounds like you had had to overcome a lot with your knees!!) I am also super impressed that you are going primal at the age of 16. In my house, that would never have happened. Do you cook for yourself or are your parents supportive? My step mom believes I am crazy for eating how I eat but I am 23 and can do what I want! Good luck to you!

Thanks! Haha you can call me skillz. Yeah my last surgery involved replacing a fresh meniscus, cadever bone for cartilage and had to tear and repair my acl to get to all that. I'm hoping eating Primal will help everything heal a lot better. And I do most of the cooking for myself but my parents usually cook dinner. I converted my parents to the point that they will use coconut oil and butter to cook but they still eat grains. My mom thinks I will clog my arteries will al the fat lol.

No workout today, knee was killing me.
I hope this whole 30 is worth it, I'm starting to miss my butter lol. I also gotta catch up on my sleep, brother's were home for spring break so I stayed up late most nights. And my home tutor is coming so early But I can't complain staying home from school is great, less work and don't have to worry about bringing a primal lunch to school. So that's a plus but I can't wait to walk again, I'm sick of crutches. Enough of my ranting lol.
