Re: BYND

I think I was mentally going down a different track. I agree, eat what makes you feel good and doesn't metabolically screw you up or make you go to an unhealthy weight. I do like my carbs, but there's no doubt once I've gone through the 3-5 days of sluggishness starting one of my lo-carb attempts, I...

Re: KeyBank Bans Gold Bullion from “Safe” Deposit Boxes

I never understood safe deposit box limitations. I assume I can store millions of dollars in jewelry in one, right? So if the bank gets robbed and my box cleaned out, really, I can make a claim on something like that? How? I assume there is a lot of not technically legal or allowed stuff stored in b...

Re: BYND

pmward,

I respectfully disagree. Calories are not equal. But that's fine. My study is myself and how my body does better when it has less carbs. I assume the studies you are reading don't have conflicts of interest. So many do.

Re: BYND

The law of thermodynamics cannot be manipulated, at the end of the day the only thing that matters is energy in vs energy out (i.e. calories and exercise). Similarly, the your body decides whether to burn or store calories depending on what its target weight is. Some foods (carbs) make your body wa...

Re: BYND

[there is nothing wrong with eating bread or pasta. They are perfectly healthy foods. I think that is the one point I'd dispute. If your body can handle it in moderation, sure. If you are a type 2 diabetic and cut carbs out, as far as everything I have read and researched, your blood sugar will be ...

Re: BYND

No doubt when I go Keto/low carb for more than a couple weeks, I have more energy, I lose weight and joints never hurt.

I've just never been able to stick with it 100% for more than about 3 months.

I never eat bread or pasta, but chips and sweets kill me.

Re: 3 years of PP returns

what i find funny is when there is a short term market downturn everyone seems to cheer about how the pp did so well by not falling but when the results are weak for 3 years all of a sudden you can't tell much from the short term . My last 3.5 years: 6.17% 12.97% -4.09% 8.17% I don't think I'd call...

Re: BYND

As an aside, although the BYND burgers tasted great, they had the oddest smell prior to cooking. Almost didn't go through with it. When I do ground beef for tacos, I used to use regular ground beef and would always get turned off by the smell. Tasted fine though. A few years ago changed to grass fe...

Re: BYND

I don't eat much red meat anyway, but if these things are going to go mainstream they need to get the cost to down to comparable. Beef production is bad for the environment and beef consumption is generally not the healthiest choice, but cost is going to be a factor for people to try and make these...

Re: Stock scream room

Am I just a negative Nancy on stocks? Thank God for the PP, or I would still not be invested in stocks at all, but really why, for years now, can I not shake the feeling that the current economy is all a mirage, based off fake numbers and debt? It must be a condition. I should be just as happy when ...

Re: Yearly balancing or 15/35?

When I hit my cash band because of 401k/IRA contributions, I rebalance all back to their percentages, which means the money isn't spread equally necessarily.
