Have we created a circle jerk for deciding which foods are healthy and which are not? Villifying sugar in all forms? Villifying high calorie foods like nuts that are beneficial in *some contexts*? This is stupid

Sneaky sugars and hidden “natural” sugars are the worst offenders imo. Lara bars are “all natural” but have 25g of sugar in that tiny bar because dates are practically sugar bombs. No way that is healthy. This can be extended to many other “health" bars like macro bars or nature valley bats

Fuck Dave Asprey and his stupid coffee! Appreciate the insight SC2. I just don’t appreciate the unhealthy relationship with food that is created by labeling some foods “healthy” and others “unhealthy.” I think everything in regards to health & nutrition should be viewed systematically, rather than assuming that eating certain foods or doing certaim HIIT workouts will automatically make you healthy

I think whenever you create an Us vs Them mentality (like “processed food mafia” or “big pharma”), you should really reevaluate what you know and don’t know.

I lift moderately heavy 3x/week. Going for long-term tone rather than bulk. I'm now trying to think about how to pair my diet with with my workout schedule. For example, should I up the protein intake on workout days and lower (save calories) on non-workout days, or try to keep a consistent diet? I could stand to lose some fat while increasing in muscle so cautious to overdo it on calories I don't really need.

What do we think about cash-flow life insurance plans? My financial advisor trying to sell me this. Seems legit. Any red flags? ————Details: Pay in 67k over next 10 years (age 31-41) which grows at 4.7% tax free for til 90 years old (break even yr 8), can take it out anytime tax free and if I die at any point before 90 my family gets 250k. If I’m alive approaching 90 I would just take out the gains tax free. Too good to be true?

I am a registered sales assistant which means I have my series 7. I also have the 63 and my Life & Health license. I was a financial advisor but the role is commission only so I decided to take a role as an assistant for some time to learn etc. I really like my role, but I only make 32k a year and after taxes I only take home about 25k. I have a gut feeling that I’m not being paid market value but it’s tough to find comparable salaries. Do you think $15.38/hr is a fair wage in this case?
