Anything that you are putting into your body as a supplement and not coming from a healthy diet is on the continuum of not natural.

Meditation as D2 suggested. Or try methods where you focus 20 or 25 min and break. There are supplements for mental focus but I would not say they are natural.

Hiring managers: if you met a candidate that you felt was the perfect fit, would you cut steps in your interview process to hire them? Or would you still go through all the normal steps knowing that you want to make an offer anyway?

Basically, I’ve moved to industry and I’m lucky in that I have full control over my hiring process. I’ve met someone that’s a perfect fit so am considering moving straight to offer, but am concerned I might miss something by doing so.

Any insights on the accuracy of MyFitnessPal’s daily caloric budget figures? Just started using and trying to determine my maintenance calories by meticulously tracking kcal in/out over a statistically significant period, say at least 6 weeks.
