Worked out religiously my entire life. Always been + - 5 lbs. Got vertigo and took a break for a solid 7 months. 15 lbs later, I’m finding it hard to fuel my workouts while cutting carbs. Any recco’s?

If you're doing low carb or keto, the key is more salty food and water. Since you're cutting carbs you're not holding as much water so you need to replace that with salty food to prevent fatigue.

Other option, keep your higher carb meals to pre/post workout to get a boost of energy then cut the carbs throughout your other meals.

This has ALWAYS confused me - Employees can contribute up to $19.5k for 401k, however, the defined contribution maximum limit from all sources is $58k (including employer contributions) for 2021. Why the heck would an employer contribute ~$38k of its own money towards your 401k when you can only contribute $19.5? Basically why would a company contribute beyond just matching your 401k contributions?

Advice: is it weird to reach out to an old mentor via LinkedIn for a casual coffee meetup? I had a rapport with someone at my old company. She ended leaving on iffy terms and I texted her after thanking her for everything she did for me, but she never responded. That was about 3 years ago. I still think about her a lot and we live in the same city. Would it be weird to reach out to connect again or should I let this go? I miss her guidance and general friendship. Thanks!


Okay. Possibly a stupid question BUT Imma ask anyway.

Can someone just explain how you plan out how much to bill so you can make sure it’s not a mad scramble at the end of year? I’m moving from a firm where I was lacking in any kind of mentorship. No one ever just sat down and explained the most efficient way to track/measure your hours to confirm that you are on track.

Is there just a secret excel spreadsheet that all lawyers have and I just missed the memo???
