re: Gary Taubes: ‘Obesity isn’t a calorie problem, it’s a hormone problem’ - DixonCider
[quote]Which is great if you don’t take any medications that cause weight gain, don’t struggle with cortisol levels that leave you starving even with proper caloric intake,[/quote] Valid, this is a factor. I'm going out on a limb and saying the majority of people just need more self control. ...

re: Gary Taubes: ‘Obesity isn’t a calorie problem, it’s a hormone problem’ - DixonCider
[quote]But that’s just over simplifying it. If it was as easy as obtaining affordable, lower calorie food with plenty of time to cook at home without any other variables that could change how you absorb those calories then sure, it’s just CICO[/quote] It's not all about low calorie foods. I still...

re: Gary Taubes: ‘Obesity isn’t a calorie problem, it’s a hormone problem’ - DixonCider
[quote]I’m no expert in this area but have a female cousin that went through a stressful situation about 10 years ago. No change to diet but put on weight all of a sudden.[/quote] Spot on. This *can* happen, but at the end of the day the end result is more calories consumed then burned. I'm a...

re: Need recommendations for high and clean calorie meals - DixonCider
What kind of macro profile are you going for? I go for roughly 3000/day and I can pretty confidently say if I had to rely on just solid foods I wouldn't hit that. Whey isolate shakes with skim milk to cram some extra in there. White rice digests fastest. I'll hit it with soy sauce. Maybe bro...

re: Switching to Non Alcoholic Beers - DixonCider
I'll have to check total wine or for sure then. I've always enjoyed stouts and recently have been on a kick off the hazy IPAs because of the citrus flavor...

re: Switching to Non Alcoholic Beers - DixonCider
I might have to try the topo chico and mio. Calories I actually have no issue with, just because at this point I'm used to setting aside the beer calories. My big problem is that I hate waking up cotton mouthed after not sleeping through the night because I had a beer after 10pm. I thoroughl...

Switching to Non Alcoholic Beers - DixonCider
Anyone on here switch to primarily or entirely non alcoholic beers/seltzers? My issue isn't with drinking. My issue is I'm a fat kid at heart, and if I like how something tastes, I want to keep consuming it. Over the weekend I decided I hated the fact that I can have a few beers, not catch a ...

re: diet hacks - DixonCider
If you're not ready to commit hard, start small. Cut out soda. Only eat out one day a week. No alcohol on weekdays, or no more than two drinks regardless of what day. Simple changes in the right direction. Also what's "a little bit of weight" and how much does the scale number drive you? ...

re: Cosmopolitan with new cover saying “This Is Healthy” - DixonCider
[quote]by teke184 It ain’t just a weight, it is the frame you stretch it over.[/quote] Precisely. Im at 6'2" 220 in size 34 pants. A buddy is 6'2" 250 in size 40 pants. There's plenty of factors that play in and I'm all for not running everything off the scale, but God damn, Cosmo....

re: Just had my annual physical - DixonCider
[quote]What's your reason for not taking it?[/quote] Watch the news on an average night, and there's countless commercials for class action suits of otherwise healthy people who got fricked sideways from some medication with unknown complications. These medications got past standard FDA approv...

re: Help me oh healthy baws! - DixonCider
When I started getting serious about dropping weight I found it easiest to break it down by the numbers. 3500 calories in 1lb of fat, meaning to lose 1lb/week you're looking at 500 calories less than you currently eat daily. At a low deficit like that, you'll never notice any drop in energy. ...

re: Registering Truck in Louisiana - DixonCider
Bit the same bullet recently. A few posts mention sell it to a buddy so that on paper you bought it dirt cheap, but this only works if the truck is paid off. Should be less than 1900 though, as current taxable amount on out of state registration is NADA value less 15% minus any taxes already pai...

re: Anyone tried Key-Bar? - DixonCider
Really depends on how many keys you have, but I love mine. Massive pain getting the keys set and spaced if you're trying to do it after a couple beers, but once they're set you're good to go. My truck has the fob built into the key (damn you Toyota) so for me it's great, takes up way less pocket...

Gator Tail Warranty - Where to go for repairs - DixonCider
Looking like the coil packs are out on my buddy's gatortail. Any suggestions on where to go for repairs or warranty items near New Orleans? Still under warranty, so we're trying to avoid the headache of tearing it down or potentially winding up in over our heads. For your efforts, thank you ...

re: Intraworkout - DixonCider
I'll have a sugar free gatorade or powerade sometimes but mostly water. Weekend morning workouts I'll have something with a big shot of caffeine to sip on after cardio. Normal workout for me is a 4 mile run or half hour on the peloton and 45 minutes to an hour lifting 4 times a week. Results will...

re: Keto diet - DixonCider
Keto does weird things. Could also possibly be your body getting more adjusted to a keto diet and holding on to water again. I did August 2019-April 2020 in a strict keto diet with about 4 week's total of cheat time to break it up. A few of my stalls were just me eating too many calories, ot...

re: I constantly have to poop after running - DixonCider
You're not alone, but I don't have any answers for you. Light running load, 3-4 days/week for 12-15 miles. I've done some experimenting and fine tuning and learned the following: 1. A new PR on a 5k will inevitably result in a blowout shortly following 2. Matching prior paces works fine out to...
