I don't get the low carb thing either. Carbs aren't necessarily bad for you, it's a problem when you consume too much of them or they're too large a percentage of your daily intake.

So....you do get it.😃

I do, and I don't. I'm big on eating balanced meals, portion control, moderation. There's nothing inherently wrong with carbs, or fat, or whatever. In moderation.

What I don't get (and I'm not saying anyone here has done this) are the people who demonize carbs. It's a basic nutrient and one of the cornerstones of human development throughout history, yet people today will claim carbs are bad, carbs make you fat, etc. That's not really how that works.

I think it’s because of how people consume carbs. It’s usually not from whole grain breads and Quinoa...it’s processed crap.  Also as far as weight gain and weight loss...carbs are the main macro that can be adjusted to successfully lose excess fat. Reducing carb intake to 20g or less daily for most people will facilitate a more successful weight loss than calorie counting alone.

I agree with everything you wrote.

To add to it, a lot of people don't realize the cumulative effect of things they consume. If they just cut out their daily intake of something minor like cheese or soda, it adds up.

I am impressed by her ability to knead from the ceiling and then present the loaf sideways. Well done 😜

The bread looks good, and I don't eat a lot of bread.

Who knew that whilst learning to bake she would develop an ability to defy gravity. Either that or I am crap with technology....

This is probably 10 years old. Maybe 20. What to do with it? It still has fizz.

His spaetzle with kimchi and bacon is next on my list. 

Made this today. It came out really good, the melding of bacon and the Korean flavors (kimchi, gochujang, gochugaru). Never made spaetzle before, and I used the tiny holes in my colander, but it worked well enough. 

With the poached eggs, it's extremely rich. So not something I'd plan on making often.

I need to make my own Kimchi sometime. 

I recently found out about gochujang, and I love this stuff.

I got into a big fermentation kick a year or two ago. Kimchi, pickles, sauerkraut. When it works, it’s awesome. When it doesn’t, you’ve got a vat of rotting vegetables on your counter.

This.  Carbs are not bad in and of itself.  It is simple carbs (e.g., processed flours, etc. but mainly sugar) that spikes your insulin level that is bad for you.  As long as most of the carbs are from complex carbohydrates (e.g., whole grain, etc.), they are good - in moderation of course.

Looking at the pictures of different foods in this thread makes me hungry.  Explains why I try not to visit this thread often.

    • Great info.  Played my local course here in Virginia Beach, (Heron Ridge) had a very short putt, hit it dead center and was shocked to see the ball rebound out of the hole.  I could hear it hit the plastic cup liner.  This cup was sunk around 1/4" from the surface, maximum of 1/2".  Tried the same putt on numerous other holes where the cup was sunk deeper with no problem.  Guess the greens keeper got lazy on this hole.
    • 2-Iron leaving 240 yards, I wasn't interpolating 255 yards. Driver going about 285. So, I assumed 180 yards left in. He said he would hit 6 iron in on a straight drive, it isn't going to be exact because the strokes gained are PGA Tour values from every shot counts. It might be dated a bit to. Also, it is just to give a comparison of 2 iron versus driver. I do not know his strokes gained data. Being a +0.6, I doubt the difference in strokes gained between 2-iron and driver would be that far off.  Yea, 4.1 strokes if the fairway is hit, which makes up 47% of the shot zone. 4.3 strokes if the rough is hit, which makes up 35% of the shot zone. I assumed 5.2 strokes the remaining 18% since it's a dead-area.  The 4.5 strokes is for the 2-iron. Not for the driver. I didn't say 4.5 82% of the time.  Here is an example. The % is based on the shot zone and what percentage of area that is made up by rough, hazard, and fairway. Now, the distribution of shots in that zone might not be uniform, but assuming that is all I have. The SG for each area is the SG chart. The dead-area, I assumed stroke in distance. A recovery shot from 180 yards is 3.8.  I just multiplied the SG by the area to get a weighted SG for this situation. Adding up and adding a stroke for the tee shot gives me the average SG for this particular hole, which is 4.37 for the driver.  A PGA Tour player, the % would change. Let's say they have like 0% dead-area. Then it might be like 55% fairway, 45% rough. Then on this tee shot, the average strokes gained will be around 4.19. Getting closer to the 4.1 average. They would not be hitting 180 yards in here on average. 
    • Maybe I'm not fully understanding the math here but you think he will average a 4.1 47% of the time that he hits driver? Even though he will still likely have 190-200yds left in, and from 200 out PGA Tour players average 3.19 strokes to hole out from the fairway and 3.42 from the rough. It's not like if he hits driver he will have a flip wedge in or something, it's still going to be like a 4/5iron, maybe even a hybrid. From 460yds on the tee PGA Tour players average 4.17 strokes to hole out and that's with a much lower penalty rate than ~18% so I don't really see how he would average a 4.1 47% of the time and under 4.5 82% of the time hitting driver. 
    • Ok, I did some analysis of this using strokes gained.    2 iron 4.65-ish (26% of the time) 4.45-ish (74% of the time) *Pray you just don't hit one OB Driver 5.2 (18% of the time) * Probably less since you said right is not necessarily dead 4.3 (35% of the time) 4.1 (47% of the time) *Note, the width of that ellipse is 70 yards wide. I think that fits with what you described as your miss being more than 50 yards. Could be a bit less, than that makes driver better.  Overall, it is 4.50 for the 2-iron and 4.36 for the Driver.  This is a one-off tournament, so not sure if you want to bring crap into play, dead on the left is about 9% of the time. Right is about 9% of the time, you said it wasn't as bad as left.  82% of the time you are good and saving almost 1/3rd a stroke over hitting 2-iron.  If your short game is very good, then maybe that plays a part here. 
    • If the process has always been that everyone plays from the same tee for the one CTP par three, it seems reasonable to finish the season following that process. During the off season, requests for a change can be considered. Our club has never included CTP as part of our competitions so I am no help.
