    Telecommuting?

    It's a matter of just setting that boundary while at home. When I work from home, I go to my office and my wife knows not to bother me unless it's an emergency. It's very easy to get caught up in personal time while working from home. You just have to treat it like you're at your desk. I can do it, no problems. I have some friends that seem to be less productive because it's too tempting for them to watch tv, workout, etc...because it "feels" like free time to them. I actually get more distracted at work than at home. When at the house, I concentrate on what I'm trying to accomplish. At work, my co-worker and myself will start talking about everything under the sun and get less work done. The distractions can easily go both ways

    How to get a Lean Body?

    I agree 100% and that's what I have always gone by. When I counted calories and macros, I didn't care what time of day I ate them, as long as I hit those numbers that day. I have never used "meal timing" as a standard.

    How to get a Lean Body?

    I know quite a few people your age that are doing crossfit 3-5 times a week, every week and some are getting in great shape.

    How to get a Lean Body?

    Yeah, some people are just more carb sensitive than others. I am on the side of be careful cutting carbs too low as your body needs them. Because of the intensity of my workouts, I like to think of carbs as a supplement. They are a great supplement to workouts. Like I said earlier in the thread, keep it simple. There is no reason to overthink this. There has been a TON of money made on the next big fad diet. Yes, they all work to some extent, but if you just stick to the basics, it works just as well. Don't get caught up in all of the diet hype. I have been there and done that for years.

    How to get a Lean Body?

    That's a no brainer. And that's what I'm talking about. When I say that, I am specifically talking about eating habits and diet. Each individual has to find what works best for them as far as diet goes. Some people do better with more carbs and less fat. Some do better with more fat and less carbs. Eating less is not necessarily true either. Many, many people eat way less than they actually think they do and have already tanked their metabolism. Dropping calories even further will not crank that metabolism back up. Eating 2000 calories from mcdonalds and eating 2000 calories of clean food are two totally different amounts of food. That's why you hear many people complain when they start eating healthy that they can't eat that much food. People have no clue how many calories they are taking in. I had a friend tell me he wanted to start leaning out. I asked him how many calories he was eating a day. He said around 2000. After having him track what he was eating, it was more like 1400 and there is no way a 35 year old male that is exercising can eat 1400 calories and have a good metabolism...So just telling someone to eat less is not a good way to get them started on a healthy lifestyle.

    Finding what works for you is key. Everyone is different so it's not cookie cutter. Keeping it simple is also key because that makes it much easier to stick to. Good luck with it!

    How to get a Lean Body?

    I guess my night time example could be that my metabolism was high, but overall lower than earlier in the day. The more I think about it, I've read that it is lower when you wake up in the morning, so that makes sense.

    How to get a Lean Body?

    Is there some science behind these statements? I'm just asking because there are thousands of people that use intermittent fasting that prove them incorrect. And from personal experience, I have awaken in the middle of the night many nights drenched in sweat because my metabolism is so high. Sometimes it's 8pm before I eat my last meal (big meal). And your body treats certain macros differently so I wouldn't say that "whatever you eat easily goes to fat." I almost feel like those statements are backwards..

    How to get a Lean Body?

    Keep it simple at first. Eat lean meats, good fats, and lots of veggies. Keep the junk to a bare minimum. Get into a habit of doing this before worrying about calorie counting and keeping up with macros and all that. Add some weights and exercise and there you go.

    What happened to Mizuno irons?

    Companies will always charge what the market will allow. Think about gas prices. That is just good business. You want to sell whatever you're selling to make the most money you can make. As far as Mizuno goes, I just went to a golf show with all of the latest and greatest and Mizuno is priced no differently than any other manufacturer from what I saw...minus PXG
  13. I didn't even know about the LeBron thing when I replied. it's just hard for me to believe that an athlete at that level would be low in sodium. Not because he doesn't sweat alot or whatever, but because it's something that he should know by now. He has probably worked with nutritionists like crazy. Having said that, maybe his diet changed the week of or something. Either way, my main point to my response was just pointing out that most people out there are not going to have an issue with sodium with the exception of the people you mentioned that are afraid of sodium. Myself, I understand the importance of sodium so I don't really worry about it that much. I wasn't disagreeing with anything you had stated.
  14. I would venture to say that unless someone is on a strict low sodium diet, sodium in the body is not an issue. You have to really watch what you eat to get much less that 1500mg a day. I know when I was counting macros and running a strict diet, it was hard for me to keep the sodium level down where it should be on some days. It's very easy to eat a lot of sodium without adding salt in your drinks (especially in the south where I live..haha). Of course, I'm not speaking from being in Kuwait or anything, but I can't really see LeBron having low sodium

    TaylorMade M2 irons

    Well, I ended up not liking the M1s. I think a big part of it was just not having confidence in the face slot any longer. I know TaylorMade had told me they hadn't had any complaints out of the M1s, but the slot is still there and it still bothered me. So I posted them for sale on Facebook, just to see if any friends wanted them first. I ended up having a guy contact me from Alabama with a brand new set of Callaway Rogue Pro Irons. He stated that he did not like Callaway and had won the irons at his club. He wanted my M1s and wanted to trade straight up. So he sent me the Rogues and I received them, checked them out, and shipped him the M1s. I never would have tried the Rogues most likely, but I knew I didn't want the M1s and this was a pretty good deal. The Rogue's were still in sealed bags and they were 5-AW. I haven't had the chance to hit these yet, but the reviews looked pretty good and the trade was a bit in my favor, so I feel like these will be better. Whether or not they will work for me, that is yet to be seen.
