Hello EveryBODY! I am back!


Recommended Posts

Thanks guys.

I am out on my luck. Need some work to do. I was laid off and hope I can use my skills to do graphics and web design work. Writing news articles will help too!

Check out my new featured image I made for this review. I am a little rusty but I am trying... I try to make unique designs.https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-i7-8086k-review/

No customers has bothered with asking me for a project on Fiverr. No one like my drawings lol. This is a computer company I work for too. www.amlcsl.com (www.computersupportcanada.com) no work there either. no emails to my business email. lol. This is a tough business drawing graphics.

Still no work on Fiverr and other site. I am working harder now because I have a real job now selling + servicing cell phones. I have a lot more energy now because I stand for at least 7 hours. I feel high in a good way and healthy. I was out of work for a month. I am on a keto diet and it is helping me out lose weight and feel level.

Good thing RHR keeps me busy from time to time. Thanks RHR team!

Yeah...I cringe a bit when I hear people I know doing "keto" diets but still eating stuff with carbs each day. Unless you commit and get yourself into ketosis, you're just eating a ton of extra fat for no real benefit. If you can keep yourself in ketosis and take the necessary vitamins and whatnot, keto works wonders.

As for short term, I can't really say I agree with the long term damage. Lots of people have been going on it for years with positive changes in their health.

Very good Point both Kevin and a guy who work beside me have been on it for years and are more active and the healthiest they have ever been.

The wifes dad lost about 100 lb and has the energy to walk all day and spend time with the kids it to us is a massive change for the good.

Everything has good and bads but research is key

I'm just going on what I've read about it, including recent reports such as: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322881.php which highlights the following:

"Also, low carb consumers were 51 percent more likely to die from coronary heart disease, 50 percent more likely to die from cerebrovascular disease, and 35 percent more likely to die of cancer. The associations were strongest among older, non-obese people."

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/08/180828085922.htm

I can't immediately find the one that highlights it puts added stress on your liver too putting you at risk for complications with that too.

It's the same case in either situation, should be looking at what you're eating overall and how much you're exercising.

I know someone from college who went Keto and is now scratching his head why he isn't losing more weight once his body's metabolism caught up. He's still overweight, but refuses to exercise.

When I was working BestBuy, I gained a lot of unnecessary weight because of the high demand of trying to sell all the time by my boss... Even while I was on my feet all the time.

Now that I sell cell phones and have a target of 1 phone a day, I am happy. I modified my keto diet. It is like 70% protein and 20% veggies/fruit and 10-15% fat.

I feel great now that I am standing up for the last 3 days. I hardly need more than 6 hours of sleep.

That also brings up what people treat a ketogenic diet as. I know when I tried it a while ago, it was a haven of meat and cheese. It still helped me with losing weight, but it wasn't nearly as good as what it could have been if I did it right with more caloric reduction.

Now I'm just the same fat ass but spending less money and eating less meat/cheese :p

Sometimes you just need to find what you find enjoyable for exercise. Personally I hate using a treadmill or stationary bike, I find it boring as hell, but an elliptical or rowing machine I find I enjoy a lot more. To the point where we just bought a rowing machine and I used it last night. That plus hockey I hope will bring me down the 5-7 kilos I'm looking to drop (and improve my cardio for hockey).

I ate a bit of carbs the other day (lasagna) and now I feel too high in sugar. Store bought lasagna is just flat noodles lol. I was having moody day.

The keto diet is great for standing for 5+ hours a day in my full time job. I felt the constant energy. No ups or downs like I did when I worked BestBuy. At BB I wolfed down energy bars and meal replacement drinks and it wasn't good. I was up and down all the time.

Eating right now I feel great with mostly protein and raw/roasted nuts. For drinks I drink ginger and honey from Costco (honey from costco tastes like pure sugar ,,,, next time I will get the expensive stuff honey)

Are you sure you're following a ketogenic diet? You mentioned honey, which is 110% not keto friendly due to the high natural sugars content, and will likely kick you out of ketosis quickly. You are probably just feeling a more constant energy by eating better and maybe not eating as much at once. Another thing is the lack of sugar crashes if you're sticking to a lower carb diet.

Either way there's nothing wrong with it. I lost most of my weight sticking to just low carb, high protein stuff. Lots of chicken and veggies for sure.

I use just a little bit of honey. I hear Ginger is very good as well as honey. A lot of health benefits. I try my best to not eat any carbs at all.

I just had some stuffed wonton wrappers steamed and it was too much carbs for me. Having a full time job now makes me crave carbs a bit. But when I find my balance I should be OK.

I cut diet and sugar soda/pop out of my life for two months now and feel great. I don't crave them no more. I use to drink 3-4 diet pops a day.

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
