The amount of stress and pain you experience during a workout is not necessarily indicative of its effectiveness.

i.e. Setting yourself on fire would be super hardcore and painful, but not very effective.
What should I be looking at in terms of diet?

Everyone on CLP knows I hate random hand histories and when stuff is out of order etc.

The call in show has a lot of people that have disorganized HH and like random coolers that are unavoidable and stuff like that. Wrong positions, wrong hands etc.

I donít have nearly the patience that he does and Iíd likely blow up after 15 minutes or so.

Generally speaking you should find out where your current eating habits place you in terms of calorie intake, macro and micro nutrients.

But you're trying to determine at how many calories will cause you to lose, gain or maintain wieght.

If your goal is fat loss then you need some type of calorie restriction. There are tons of ways to achieve this. Pick one that you feel fits right with what you can stick to. There's no magic bullet. Be wary of anyone who strongly claims one method is king. Whether it be intermittent fasting, keto, carnivore, paleo, or good old fashioned calorie tracking.
I don't believe there's one magic method that's the best for everyone.
But I do believe balance, variety and high food quality is important.

That said for me I didn't want to think about what I ate and I can force myself to stick with boring foods so I just did a lot of chicken and veggies. I just tracked my total calorie intake and my protein and let everything else fall where it may.

I drank only water and had hardly any added sugar in my diet.

If your goal is to put on some muscle then you need to gain some weight first and lift often. Then lose weight.

Definitely not trying to lose weight. I cut down on fast food & soda a lot a couple years ago, but my eating habits definitely aren't the best.

I guess I'm supposed to eat lots of protein or something. Was thinking about just adding in protein shake stuff & maybe trying to clean up my eating habits a bit more?

I've heard that you don't want tons of protein and that this is why body builders have low t. I don't remember the source but, rest assured, it was someone on YouTube with few, if any, credentials or qualifications.

I am convinced that IF is a magic bullet. If for no other reason, I'm pretty well sold on the autophagy thing. (I think you can also induce autophagy by skipping protein for a while and eating fewer calories rather than none)

While this is subjective, I also think it's pretty easy to sustain. Once you are used to it it is easy and it affords you the opportunity to indulge.

Visiting family this week. I'll fast before and after and pig out ( in moderation) while there, as opposed to turning down the local cuisine and home cooking.

I'd probably grab a pre-planned diet&exercise plan off one of the big sites like bb.com and see how you feel in 6 weeks.

If you don't have a particular weight goal and just want to switch up for general health
then yeah the easy thing to do is reduce added sugar and processed foods.

And getting more protein has nothing to do with low T. The correlation with body builders is that almost all of them are on steroids.

hey just want to mention that the threadís hero KyddDynamite is feuding with Cate Hall over $60k stake and glossed over another horse ODing on drugs he was supposed to split with Cate, so i definitely think heís a super cool guy with a great handle on his dream situation as written about in the Washington Post!

Had to look up IF & autophagy. I don't think I have any interest in that.

If I was going to do the intense stuff it would probably have to be on the weekend anyway. Can only do so much during lunch hour. Might turn to the internet at some point...

Less bad foods, more protein, same amount of steroids. Got it.

Just read her Twitter about it and I'm confused. One can get a staking deal, run up a bunch of make-up, and as long as you quit poker you're off the hook for paying the remaining make-up?

That seems fkcing stupid for any backer to agree to. Lemme just try this poker thing out on someone else's dime and then peace out when it inevitably doesn't work.

well, the backer is supposed to vet their horses to a degree where they have confidence the horse can beat a level (in this case 5/10) and will grind out any makeup incurred while playing higher. that doesnít work if the horse isnít really playing their regular game before and after the shot taking, you are correct.

never met the guy, or had an opinion one way or another really, i kinda was rooting just because of ashes and it was local. but the arrogance and ignorance displayed by Chad in his thread are just mindboggling. apparently you get scammed if you are staking 40(!) people with minimal supervision.

apparently itís ok that a horse ODíd and died, especially ok the horse played on drugs, because ďhe was one of my biggest winnersĒ (the f***ing guy is dead and Chad is talking about money)

apparently itís ok that Cate succumbed to addiction and potential mental illness, but he needs his $60k.

iím sure the other horses will get some sort of support if their life has a downswing, if theyíve made enough profit for the Don!

the guy tried to say ďnitrousĒ was the drug being abused by Cate and others in the group. COULD YOU BE ANY MORE CLUELESS AND ARROGANT?

this guy is literally ruining lives, Chad, get all your money and terrible horses out of poker and learn how life works. and stop enabling f***ing drug addicts and giving them $60k HAHAHAHA

OK, so basically a staker isnít always going to profit and make money Turtle.

I was pretty deep into makeup with my staker earlier in 2018. He decided it was no longer a beneficial situation for EITHER of us ... he felt like the makeup was starting to affect my mental game.

So he and I parted ways. Now, his staking is part of a business so he will be able to write off my losses for tax purposes (I have no idea how much or how little he will benefit from this).

His net loss is also significantly less than the makeup I was in ... if I was to get staked again or someone asked me my opinion on getting staked I would recommend some kind of base pay for the horse. I was on a 50:50 split - it was ironically going to go up the weekend before my tragic downswing started as my coach/staker was thrilled with the first three weeks of our venture. We split the profits twice a month. So every two weeks I am starting over at $0 and could be in makeup quickly.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

JM3 - I really enjoy looking good nekkid. But its not the main reason y I do fitness. I do it so that I am strong enuf so that I can continue to do all the fun sht that I enjoy doing. It seems to me most of murica is really outta shape. Which is y they stop doing fun stuff. I had a great time instilling my love of the outdoors with my daughter when she was growing up. And it has stuck. She loves doing all the fun stuff. She turns 22 next week. We are planning a big surf trip to fiji to celebrate her college graduation. Its gunna b epic. She has no immediate plans on making babies...but when she does I plan on recreating hard with them. Being strong and lean is important to me in accomplishing this goal. So getting motivated to go to the gym is just simply a nonstarter cuz I will not allow myself to not enjoy those moments.

The staker not profiting or making money is kinda my point.

Unless I'm missing something, someone backed you to play poker, you lost the money given to you to play poker up to $N. You and your staker parted ways, you're now off the hook for any of the make-up you generated while being staked. But if you remained on the stake, you would be responsible for paying back the make-up. Is that correct?

I get zero enjoyment from the gym which is why I never do it. Too much fun to be had just playing sports, imo (3 hockey games last week, couldn't squeeze in my golf round due to rain, passed on pickelball which is just starting up again but I'm sure I'll get back into). But each to his own obviously.

Half day of work for me and then off to the last camping trip of the season (only 3rd outing this year). Where did the year go?

Staking is usually awful for the horse unless the value of coaching is more than the amount lost due to the split.
