How tall are you, by the way?

Looking good, I definitely noticed some size difference in the second set of pictures. Keep up the good work. :)

I agree! My first thought about the first image of your second set was "the back looks fuller".

nice progress man! :) i think someones already mentioned it but definately add nuts and other high-cal foods if youre trying to get in more cals. :) im naturally a stringy girl but i really wanted to bulk up a couple of years ago to improve my climbing, and i started just carrying around a big bag of almonds, cashews, and dried fruit everywhere i went. :lol:

im a huge fan of seitan for protein, by the way. cook up some whole wheat pasta, sautee some veggies and seitan, and mix it all up with olive oil and oregano and chunky tomato sauce...yum. :)

can't wait to see your next set of progress pix!

Yes...I try to increase my intake of high-cal foods. And especially almonds are great. I also try not rely too much on calories from fats but that doesn't mean that I'm not eating 200g of almonds in one go if my body tells me to. ;)

So far my calorie intake has increased from around 2800 to around 3600. And my protein intake increased from around 80-90g per kg to around 110-120g per kg.

I haven't tried seitan yet and while I still cooked I could eat a pot of pasta no problem. But as I try to stay with raw food at the moment I go with bananas, olives, almonds, nuts, sultanas, dried figs, dried dates,...

The people at the office always wonder how I can eat that much when they see the stack of food I bring to the office or when I tell them how many calories I eat daily. :wink:

Lets see. I did weigh myself again today and I'm up to 78kg and 9% body fat. That's about 3kg plus in about 2 months. Maybe I find the time to snap some progress pics too.

OK...had time for some measurements and photos.

Weight was up to 78kg(+1.4kg) and body fat at 9%. The other measurements showed a slight increase in the chest, arms and neck. Legs were undecided. While the upper leg showed a slight increase, the lower leg showed a slight decrease. But those differences could also be measurement errors.

The photos do not express the changes that are taking place, since the beginning of that training. Not only are the muscles getting stronger and feel denser than before. But there is also a different awareness of muscle movements and strength in daily activities.
