  1. I'm down for whatever. I think classic EB rules with no PMing would be an interesting experiment.
  2. For @JayKay PE specifically but also for anyone else curious about keto... Yeah. Me and my wife do keto and I can say it's not for everyone. (But I have personally found it easier than I expected.) I don't think there are any "one-size fits all" programs when it comes to diet and exercise. You gotta figure out what works for you. Portion control, low fat, low carb, keto, vegetarian, whole30, etc can each be good or bad for different people. Regarding carbs. Yeah carbs are super calorie dense, especially highly processed carbs, so reducing carbs also has the effect of reducing calories. If you're eating prepared foods (packaged or restaurants) there are LOTS of carbs hiding in there that you may not be aware of. Just something to consider. Keto takes it a step farther than just doing low carb. With keto you basically eat no carbs (not even "healthy" carbs). That actually forces your body chemistry to change. You go into ketosis (that's where the name comes from), where you body start producing ketones and burning fat as it's primary energy source. But that means you actually have to eat a lot of fat. Keto is basically high fat, moderate protein, and no carbs (technically less than 30g of carbs per day). Since keto puts your body in permanent fat-burning mode, it can make it much easier to lose weight. Some things to consider: Can you really give up all carbs? This has actually been easier than I expected. There are carb-free substitutions and recipes for almost anything. Yeah it's not the same, but it's passable. Are you willing to cook for yourself all the time? Keto options when eating out are few and far between. It's actually VERY inconvenient if you rely on eating out for convenience, lack of time, or lack of cooking ability. I could give a list of suggestions if anyone is interested, but believe me when I say it's not a long list. The first couple of month of keto can suck. It takes between 2 weeks and 2 months for your body to go through that chemical change to get into ketosis. That can result in what people refer to as the "keto flu". Basically you feel like shit for a while until your body gets used to it. It hits everyone differently, but there are things you can do to help the process along including exercise, intermittent fasting, and consuming a lot of electrolytes. Again just something to be aware of. Also that means you can't quickly jump into and out of a keto diet like some people do with other diets. I don't say all this to be discouraging. On the contrary. I want you to be informed and realistic because that's what sets you of for success. Feel free to ask me if you want any more info.
  3. I assume @RBHeadge PE must still be tournamenting since he's still not talking about it.
  4. When are we playing again? Maybe sign up this week and start on Monday? Who's willing to mod? volunteers? Who's in?
  5. I'm definitely hearing about an increase in deaths. Don't know if that is true other places.
  6. I think everyone died before we finish your remodel. Sorry we didn't do better.
  7. I think LOTS of people should be getting hazard pay right now. I know I wouldn't be risking my life for certain jobs without it. Unfortunately the little guy continues to get ******
