    • Keep in mind im not a dietician, nutriotionist, etc, but I’ve been around nutrition, training and learning about both for several years, including being an advisor for 1stphorm. So none of this is advice but more so things to consider and look at to help. I’m guessing you have probably been under eating and your at a point now where your body is going to hold onto food almost in survival mode. There’s several options to look at to help you. Tracking what you eat so that you know how many calories you are eating a day. We all have our own maintenance calories. To lose weight we need to be in a deficit. Protein is essential in helping to lose weight due to the overall health benefits of it but also it’s thermogenic effect. Typically 1g per lb of bodyweight is recommended except for those who have more than 60lbs to lose than it’s around .6g per lb of bodyweight. Then splitting the rest of rhe calories between carbs and fat and for men you don’t want to go below 50g a day because of the negative effects on hormones. There are apps like MyFitnessPal that will let you track for free(I wouldn’t use it to determine your calories). Iifym.com has a free macro/calorie calculator. Apps like carbondietcoach and macro factor (both under $12/mo for monthly subscription) or less if you do a one year membership. These two are actually coaching apps and will make adjustments weekly as necessary based on check in data. Cheaper than getting a coach which can run anywhere from $100-300/month. The key thing is to know what you are eating daily including how much. That you keep calories as high as possible while losing weight. Too many people try to go as low as possible which only hurts and prolongs the process.    I’m here to help and answer any questions and provide suggestions if needed 
    • The key for me is developing a reasonable plan that is easy to stick with, modifying it over time based on results and the like. Best of luck in your journey!
    • Seeing this thread again is a good reminder to reset and refocus. Things were going well in July following my meal plan, working out daily, etc. and seeing results in the way clothes fit, the way I look, and on the scale. Then I went to NYC in early August for what was supposed to be a 2 day work trip (fly in Wednesday morning, work from our NY office, go to a retirement celebration for a long time colleague, work from NY office Thursday morning, and fly home Thursday afternoon). As expected, the celebration included a few drinks and the night included a couple of NY slices after midnight before heading back to the hotel. I was fine with and planned for that with the intent that I would get back to the daily grind on Friday. Well, as a result of multiple cancelled flights (2 after sitting in the plane for 3+ hours), I didn't make it home until Saturday at 4pm after flying from LGA to Roanoke, driving a rental to Greensboro, NC to get my truck, and driving home. Worked out Sunday, but then came down with something on Monday (tested negative). No meal prep, unexpectedly being on the road for days, being sick, etc., I ended up eating what was here, easy, and/or sounded good (i.e. lots of crap and didn't work out until I started feeling better). Also skipped intermittent fasting. I gained weight, feel like garbage...time to refocus!!!  I think it is a good reminder that life will happen, I might make poor eating decisions for a bit, but that's ok. I have made progress from where I started and am now in a position to refocus.
    • MLA is one that I haven't seen much of lately. I know for a few years there they were big in with the most wanted and did very well but seemingly have fallen off a bit? I would agree that Putters seem to be the category of choice for many to break in. Perhaps it is also a slightly simpler process. I know we also have a member who has been making and selling his own. I forget another guy I follow in IG makes wood/glue custom putters. Can't remember the name though. They I would say are more wall hangers then gamers, but still.  Golf balls are another one that we see many new comers to the space and there seems to be a new name popping up fairly frequently. Again I mention Sugar, I guess they have been around for a little while but it was only now that I saw a add in the Swiss Golf Assoc book and went to their site to take a look at them.  I'm sure there are many others that I have never seen or heard of and would love to get exposure to them and see the different options that are available. 
    • Didn’t realize they were back.  Machine has been around for a long time and based on what I remember have gone in and out of business a couple of times.  Makes me remember the putter talk forum; still hoping it makes a comeback.
