It doesn't have to be money, it could have been something even more trivial like a watch or dinner. Literally anything. I totally agree with you on one thing, it it hard to believe a kid who only has to wait until mid-January to announce he is going to the NFL and can then do literally whatever he wants, would do something so selfish this close to the end of his season.

USC is the better job for sure compared to FSU, but there's no way he leaves PSU for either of them. He already recruits very well at PSU, despite going up against OSU and TTUN. PSU will almost always be in the thick of the conference championship race at Penn State. Fure sure he would see the same kind of success at USC, but it would be a step back at first. There is no reason for him to leave.

I think that is a fair point, but like you said a bit extreme. Still something to consider.

Let me ask you a question, how would you weight the offensive averages against the defensive averages? So say an offense's YPC average is 157% compared to their previous opponents defensive averages, and the defense we are comparing it to gives up 49% of their previous opponents YPC. How are you weighting that.

I have heard a lot of varying opinions on keto. The concept is really interesting, not sure if I would try it out, but I wouldn't rule it out either.

Comment 16 Oct 2019

So you only intake ~50g of protein? That seems really low. From what I have seen you should take in around .8 - 1g of protein per lbs of body weight. Either way, if it works for you and you are seeing good results, then keep it up!

Edit: I just looked up keto macros and I am dead wrong. That's an insane amount of fat.

Comment 16 Oct 2019

Counting and tracking calories can be a real pain in the butt. For myself, even though I weigh all of my food, I don't get caught up in the difference between 8.5oz of chicken vs steak, or 6oz or rice vs. potato, or tomato vs broccoli, etc., Especially now that I am currently maintaining my weight. I really just focus on buying foods that fit well with my macros and then break up my plates into "parts" eg, lunch/dinner would be 8.5oz meat, 6oz carb, 6oz veggies, and 1oz fat (pretty much avocado). I find doing this helps reduce the stress of getting everything perfect and still works well for my goals. I am still not comfortable with eating intuitively, but maybe I will be one day.

Comment 16 Oct 2019

There's a lot packed in here, but I'll just boil it down to the following;

1. You should avoid foods with added sugars, high sodium levels, preservatives, etc.,

2. Eat as much natural, unprocessed, 'whole foods' as possible,

3. Understand CICO and how it relates to your personal goals,

4. Breads and pastas can be okay, but understand some are better than others, moderation is key,

5. The twin experiment is what it is, no one should intake junk food as a part of their regular diet,

6. My whole point was caloric intake is the driver of weight gain and loss, and the person I was responding to was incorrect, I think we are in agreement here.

Comment 16 Oct 2019

Thank you, I am 5'10. We pretty much have the same goals. I never really put a number on it, but I do plan to slowly add muscle over time and go from there. Appreciate your reply, good luck to you.

Most people fail at only eating until satiated, or 'intuitive eating', that's why they are fat or their diets are not working. They do not know what is too much or too little. Research has been done to show that people who are overweight typically under-report the calories they consume, it stand to reason that part of the problem is they don't have a clue how many calories are in the food they eat. That is why calorie counting is effective when done properly.

Processed carbs and added sugars are generally bad, especially when consumption is not monitored. Rice is a grain, plenty of athletes and bodybuilders base their nutrition off of consuming rice as a quick source of carbs, I don't think they have a problem with fatty tissue.

Judging by your diet of fatty steak, bacon, and buttered eggs, buttered veggies and buttered coffee (are you f-ing serious?), I assume you're all about keto and that's cool dude. Do you. Not sure how the rest of your diet looks, but I think you can get healthier fats from sources other than butter. See salmon, avocado, nuts etc.,

I would love to know why you hate bananas, I assume it is the sugar/carbs? I consume bananas every day, they are a good source of potassium, vitamin b, c, and fiber. 

Berries are a good source of antioxidants, and vitamins.

Those who are losing weight only need to understand one thing, calories in/calories out. One pound of fat = 3500 calories, so reducing your daily intake by at least 500 calories from your maintenance is key to losing 1 pound a week. You can do that by working out, dieting, or a combination of the two.

1g protein = 4 calories

1g carbohydrate = 4 calories

1g fats = 9 calories

However you want to work those numbers up to get to your intake goal is your choice, keto, atkins, IIFYM, weight watchers, etc., all boil down to this.

Comment 16 Oct 2019

Last February I was around 225-230. I started eating healthier (not necessarily following a diet) and cut back on booze significantly, got down to 186-190 up until this February. My SO and I bought a Bowflex and a stationary bike, and I started using them around the end of February. I started focusing a lot on my diet with IIFYM. I was on a cut until I got to 159, and now I am around 165 and doing more of a maintenance diet.
