    Leave the TV timeouts for all I care. What really needs fixed is the end of close games. Between official reviews, fouls, and timeouts... it's brutal to watch.

    NBA Thread

    This. It's basic math. And you could take it even farther and say that, in reality, because the sample size is larger, whoever ends the regular season with the best record is the best team.
  3. Thanks for this article. I actually didn't know Barak was now coaching Valpo. He and I went to the same high school in the Fort Wayne area (Leo High School) and I remember watching him play on some really good teams when I was a kid.

    The Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting

    Just to clarify... I'm including myself when I say we are undisciplined. Because I'm not the best at always following the diet. But that has nothing to do with whether or not the diet is good for our overall health.

    The Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting

    I think the fact that people feel good and lose weight while doing the keto diet and then balloon up after they stop tells you all you need to know. We live in a society and culture that has, unfortunately, pushed foods that just aren't good for us. Is keto hard in the current culture we live in? Yes. But that doesn't mean the diet itself is bad. That means we are undisciplined.

    The Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting

    @mrflynn03 I have never taken any and everything I've read seem to point in the direction of them being a scam (I'm also a natural skeptic though). The ketones that matter are the ones your body creates naturally. Any ketones addes externally are pointless (based on my previous research)

    Better Team Always Win?

    The best team that night wins the game. Doesn't mean they are truly a better team. Virginia beats UMBC 19 times out of 20 this year. Lucky for UMBC, they hit that one time in the first matchup.

    The Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting

    Intermittent fasting goes really well with keto because fats satiate your hunger much better than carbohydrates. So fasting is just inherently easier. That said, you can do one and not the other with success. In regards to brain fog or energy depletion... if you are truly doing keto and staying in ketosis, then yes, initially your body is going to go through some flu-like symptoms as your body transitions. These last different lengths of time depending on the person. That said, typically once in ketosis and fat-adapted, I've seen and heard others have a much clearer mind and similar (if not better) energy levels than when the body's fuel source is carbohydrates.
  12. Anyone else heard/tried the ketogenic diet? It's goal is to turn the body into a fat adapted machine that uses ketones as energy as opposed to carbohydrates. It definitely goes against the 20th century food pyramid and low fat recommendations but any research studies surrounding those have been shown to be fairly unreliable (a lot of bias involved). I've been doing it off and on (not recommended) for a few years now. But when I'm fully in, it truly is amazing. I've been strict with it (and been doing 16-8 intermittent fasting) since January 1 of this year and have dropped 33 lbs. Here is a beginner's guide to the diet with some more details in the links provided: https://www.reddit.com/r/keto/comments/27vx2z/beginners_guide_to_keto/ Ask me any questions if you are curious too. P.S. for those that don't know what intermittent fasting is... when I say 16-8, I eat in a 8 hour window during the day and fast the rest of the time (including sleep)

    What is your favorite alcoholic beverage?

    Beer - Bells Two-Hearted or Founders All Day Liquor - a good old-fashioned with either bourbon or rye whiskey

    Do you get a flu shot ?

    Flu shot or not... Having two children under the age of 2.5, I hope and pray that the war against vaccines ends soon. We need to stop taking medicine and science into our own hands... especially as parents. Do some of the ingredients in vaccines sound scary? Sure. Is it most likely scary because we aren't educated researchers, medical professionals, and scientists? Most likely. If a group of misinformed parents causes an outbreak of a disease that has basically been dormant for years (which we are starting to see bits of) and it affects the health of my child, I will be furious.
