New plan. Constantly blow whistles outside the White House and at all trump speaking events from now on. That would make him so enjoyably livid.

EDIT: thank you for the silver and gold! Let’s get out there and blow some fucking whistles!

EDIT 2: Thank you again for the awards! I feel it is also my duty to remind you to save your hearing. I have comments of people who want to get together to get this done. Pick and time and place and I’ll post it. Protect your ears! You only get one set and tinnitus is permanent.

EDIT 3: Thursday 10/10 at 6pm. Bring your whistles to the Target Center in Minneapolis. Get some whistles, get some friends, get irritating.

EDIT4: It’s been awesome to keep getting responses and interest in making this an actual thing! I’ve heard from people in MN, DC, SLC, California, and even England who want to get this started! I’m all for it, but let’s make sure we are there as an irritant, not as bullies. If you go out to blow some whistles tag your work with #irritatingwhistleblowers. So go get some friends, get some whistles, and get irritating!

EDIT 5: Good morning! Head on over to r/whistleattrump for further updates and shenanigans. I’ll continue to post updates and events as people get me the information.

u/MyUglyKitty · 2353 pointsr/GetMotivated

Wow, I could have written this. I'm down 54 lbs as of this morning (220 to 166).

First, please check out r/loseit. There are wonderful people over there who absolutely excel at providing advice and support much better than me. You'll see thousands of stories of people just like you (and me) who have been where you are and who are still where you are.

As others have said, motivation fades and sheer determination is what will pull you through. Just take one small step every day. Today, just read a little on r/loseit. Next week, google TDEE and write down what you eat without trying to restrict.

Also - No zero days

You've got this and people are here to help!

EDIT: OK, now I'm on a computer and can type for real. I'm 35, female, 5' 5" tall (or 1.67 meters) and weighed 158 lbs at 10 yrs old. I've been there. I've been depressed. I've felt worthless. I won't pretend to understand exactly what you're going through, but I think I can relate.

First, let me say congrats on taking a step by posting here. You know you want to change and that's the first thing you have to do - make a decision. The second step is much harder...actually taking the step. You can plan forever and feel like you've accomplished something, but planning doesn't count without action.

Before I type out actual weight-loss advice. I want you to check on one thing - your medication. I'm absolutely not saying you need to go back on it, but please take a hard look at going off and if what you're feeling is related to that. Please, make sure you're working with a doctor to change/go off your medication. You may still be "coming down" from it. I truly don't know the specifics of these things, but I've seen the effects. I've seen too many people go off their medication because they "feel fine" not realizing that it's the medication that creating that feeling. Talk to your doctor, (s)he may say it's normal, maybe you need to try something different, maybe you don't need them any more, but please please please put some hard, rational thought into it. OK PSA over.

I know you're looking for motivation, but motivation fades. And it's not even determination that keeps you going. It's habit, making something so common, so boring, so regular that it feels weird to not be doing it. Measure your food (e.g., servings) until anything more than one serving that looks weird. Walk 15 minutes everyday at 4:45 PM until going a day without it feels weird. By the way, it took me maybe 3 months of dedication for these things to become habit. Make a chart. Do your habits 3 days next week. 4 days the week after that. Work up to 6 or 7. Give yourself gold stars. (No zero days...)

Ok, some concrete things. I'm going to offer a few universal pieces of advice, followed by a few things that worked for me. Take everything with a grain of salt. If I've learned anything, it's that everyone needs to figure out what works for them.

  • Small steps - Please don't go from 2500 calories a day to 1200. You'll fail by dinner. This week, just weigh/measure and write down what you eat and look up the calories. Don't try to cut anything out yet. You need to get a baseline. Maybe all you need to do is cut out the daily Starbucks. Maybe you eat healthy, but too much - cut each serving by 1/4 cups. You won't know unless you figure out where to start.
  • Don't set an "all or nothing" attitude - I'M NEVER EATING SUGAR AGAIN!!! The quickest way to get a stubborn asshole like me to do something (i.e., eat sugar) is to tell me I can't do it. I feel this is a universal issue.
  • CICO - aka Calories in vs. calories out. This is the weight-loss guiding principle. Google and read about total daily energy expenditure (TDEE). The amount of calories you burn in a day. Using 5'5", 21 yrs old, and "sedentary lifestyle" you burn about 2,100 calories by simply sitting on the couch and breathing. To lose weight, you need to take in fewer calories than you burn (calories in vs. calories out - CICO). Period. That's it. A 500 calorie deficit per day = 1 lb lost per week. If you want to eat more, you're going to have to move more. I eat about 1800-2200 calories per day, but I make sure I move a lot too. If I didn't want to exercise so much, I would have to eat less.
  • Be prepared - Have healthy snacks on hand. Have water on you at all times. Know when you're going to a party and may over-indulge (and that's ok). EXPECT THE SCALE TO GO UP AND DOWN. Get your mindset around that now. You will probably drop up to 5 lbs the first week you really go hard at this. That rate won't last, be mentally prepared for that. Here's my daily weigh-ins. Be mentally prepared to gain. lose, and plateau.
  • Stick to it - This is the single most important thing you can do. You fucked up yesterday. It's going to happen. Ate a bowl of brownie batter crying alone in your bed with your cat while watching old Friends re-runs? (My husband is a lucky man). Ok. But this is something you're going to have to fight for a long time. It can't be all or nothing (see above). You have to find a way to pick yourself up and try again. So many times I've said, "well, fuck it. I ate the brownie batter yesterday. What's the point? Might as well just quit. But if you're in this for the long haul, the concept of giving up doesn't make sense. Give up what? My treadmill habit? What's the point.

    Ok some specifics that worked for me.

  • Daily weigh-ins - most people will tell you to weigh yourself weekly or monthly. However, after doing that for years, I would always get discouraged when my weekly weight was higher. I started doing daily weigh-ins and learned to embrace the ups and downs. When you pull back on a year's worth of work it puts everything into perspective. It also helped keep me focused. 2 days up meant suck it up buttercup and put down the peanut buttercup.
  • Take a few before pictures - Take more photos every 10 lbs you lose. I saw results in the photos before I saw them in the mirror.
  • No cheats, just treats - There is no "off limit" food for me. I pretty much eat what I want. Having said that, what I want is to lose weight and what I want to eat is food that will help me do it. I have my treats, but maybe one cookie, not 12. We're going out to dinner tonight so I'm having a light lunch. I'm not "doing" Keto, paleo, vegan, whole30, weight watchers, Facebook milkshake diet. Props to those of you who do, but to me, those are not permanent. And anything that I "go off of" when I'm "done" = massive weight gain post-"diet" in my world.
  • Pick a tracker (MyFitnessPal, FitBit, SparkPeople, excel, whatever) - Most people use MyFitnessPal to track food and weight. I use a combination of SparkPeople, Fitbit, and excel. I like excel. I'm both fat and a nerd (my husband is a lucky guy). Make tracking a habit. If you miss a day, start again tomorrow, MyFitnessPal doesn't care. I get excited to update my spreadsheet. Hell, I'll send it to you if you want (PM me).
  • Start at home - It can be daunting starting something new, luckily we live in the internet age. No one cares if you can't do a 30-min YouTube work out in your basement. No one has to know. People get intimidated by the gym - I was. I still don't go to a gym. But there are millions of workout resources online. You don't need equipment or training or cute workout clothes. You just need 3-4 days per week to form a habit.

    I've become addicted to seeing results and, frankly, it's kinda fun at this point. People notice. I get compliments. I feel proud. You can do this.

    Today is Sunday. Pick one of these things and implement it tomorrow. Download MyFitnessPal. Buy a food scale. Set up a spreadsheet. Take your before photo. Or at least read No Zero Days.

    Hope this helps!

    EDIT 2: Several people have asked me for my spreadsheet, so here it is. I'm not going to lock cells so people can edit it as they like, but the idea is that you only type in the pink cells. I filled in the first row as an example. Everything else will fill in automatically. You'll need to fill in your goal too if you want it to appear on the table.

    It's up to you to track calories in and out. Like I said, I use my FitBit for this . I also have a cheap fat monitor and started tracking that when I started HIIT workouts and the weight loss slowed. Anyway, add columns, delete those you don't need, and most importantly keep with it!

u/Yarsl · 188 pointsr/Frugal

I'm getting my parents miracle berry tablets, so they can host a miracle berry tasting night with friends.

And then I got another packet for my boyfriend's family with whom I will be spending Christmas; that and a small assortment of foods that are fun to try, like limes and stout beer and Greek yogurt, for our own miracle berry tasting night. Miracle berries are fun and last ~1 hour; something that creates memories but not at a huge expense.

Price: $14 / pack of ten, $25 / two packs of ten.

That’s right damnit! The most masculine thing is to be perfectly confident with what you like and who you are, regardless of whether it’s “masculine” or not. Theres going to be someone who makes fun of you for anything you do. Don’t dress nicely? You’re a lazy slob. Dress too nicely? Must be gay. Enjoy wine? What a sissy. Talk about how you’d rather drink beer than wine? You uncultured redneck.

Just do you the best way you know how.

Also, have you tried one of these?

u/Druubie · 97 pointsr/AskReddit

You and me are in the same boat. I have one of those fabled Internet jobs so dispensable money comes when I want it to. Here are some of the things I bought just yesterday.

LED light strips to accent stuff in your house, with remote control -Video example

Threadless shirts Seriously these shirts are sweet as hell. Look under clearance, too, the $10 ones are very cool. Nothing like those "LOL I KNOW MEMES!!" type t-shirts that litter most t-shirt sites.

Boon Glo Nightlight Completely, completely unnecessary and overpriced. But cool as hell. Unboxing video

Candy dispensers are fun

Sites like Woot and 1SaleADay post new deals on a daily basis, and they are often really sweet things. Bookmark them if you haven't already.

Buy yourself a sweet looking fish tank

Obligatory head massager post

Edit: Couple of you are asking about the job. I figured I had that coming. Please don't perceive this as dick-ish, but I'd rather not talk about it. Yes, it's perfectly legal and no I'm not flaunting my hot body for money, but there's some quote out there about keeping ingenuity a secret from others so...that. I will say this, though. You can make money doing ANYTHING online. Remember the used socks eBay AMA last year? That dude made thousands. Don't look at some TV commercial about taking surveys online for cash, realize it's a low paying scam, and give up. Those are shallow waters. Keep trekking!

u/dontforgetpants · 86 pointsr/AmItheAsshole

Living with roommates sucks, especially roommates with very different class/work/sleep schedules. Everyone suggesting 9-10 pm quiet time needs to get out of their morning person bubble. Everyone else suggesting that OP go out every time they want to have a chill conversation with friends is also being unrealistic. For one, that's going to get really expensive. For another, OP has a right to use the living room they pay to rent, which is equally as strong as Roommate's right to sleep, so they must find a way to balance these rights.

I say this as a very, very light sleeper. In a decade and a half of living with roommates, I have never come to a point of not being able to work it out, nor come to a point of putting my foot down and telling a roommate they couldn't use the living room at conversational volumes whenever I was sleeping.

OP - maybe in the politest way possible, you can help your roommate explore some techniques to sleep better. White noise machine or fan, blackout curtains, eye mask, ear plugs. I would again politely encourage your roommate to at least try ear plugs for a week. I recommend the Mack's 32 dB - they are small and squishy enough to comfortably sleep on even for a side sleeper (33 dB are quite a bit bigger) and you can still hear a nearby alarm through them, though they block out background noise.

Same ratio as ON Whey. Chugging down 10 Taco Bell coffee's = post-workout superfood confirmed. Just be sure to not shit for a few hours or you lose your gainz.

u/Ravenhaft · 62 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

https://www.amazon.com/mberry-Miracle-Fruit-Tablets-10-Count/dp/B001LXYA5Q Right here. Turns off your sour receptors, I think. But the acid can still damage your mouth so don’t like, start chugging citric acid after you take this.

They make those indoor lamps that you can use for SAD. I have no idea how well they work, but maybe you could give one a try? Like this one? It's very highly reviewed. They're a little pricey but could be worth it if it helps.

u/Hoodooz39 · 34 pointsr/AskReddit

I really wanted to be a boy when I was about 5/6. We had those little paper dixie cups. When I needed to pee, I would take a cup, poke a hole in the bottom, hold it over my nether regions and try to pee standing up. It never worked exactly how I imagined it and I would always end up with pee all over myself and the floor.

Now they make a device for females to pee standing up, but I no longer have such strong penis-envy. It might come in handy camping, though...

u/techie1980 · 34 pointsr/RedditForGrownups

I don't know how to solve your neighbor problem, but I would highly recommend investing in some earplugs:

I live near a fairly major city street where a motorcycle shop moved in. These things, and a white noise generator, have been lifesavers. (At least for me, it was the relative quiet to 90Db motorcycle engine with a radio that would wake me up. This combination dulls it.)

u/Huffheinz · 29 pointsr/BuyItForLife

You can also get a white noise machine that makes noise without blowing much air. It's just a little fan in a container with holes in it. They work very well.

https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00HD0ELFK

u/Palatoglossus · 29 pointsr/chicago

Call me a corporate shill but I use a happy lamp and, I know it's anecdotal, but it makes a huge difference for my mood and energy in the winter months.

You can get a 10,000 lux lamp on amazon for 40-50 dollars. Use it for 30 minutes in the morning while you are drinking your morning coffee. Game changer.

EDIT: Since there were some questions about recommendations, [I use this one.] (https://www.amazon.com/NatureBright-SunTouch-Light-Therapy-package/dp/B000W8Y7FY/ref=pd_lpo_121_bs_img_2/166-1337885-5426712?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=G0EE30FB4N1A4WTGEJNQ) I actually spent quite a bit of time agonizing over what to buy since I have a min-max issue in real life and I have to say I'm happy with it. If I recall, a majority of the negative reviews were regarding the "ionizer" portion of the product which, to be frank, I have no idea about. There is no research to suggest that inhaling ionized air is beneficial. There is plenty of science to support the benefit of these lights for SAD as long as the strength of the light is 10,000 lux. This is important. Again, there is no scientific evidence to support that anything less than this will be beneficial. As with any product, user mileage will vary so I can't, in good conscious, suggest that you buy one of the "higher end" models for 200-400 dollars without knowing if you benefit so this is a good option. Having seen one of the more expensive lights be used in the resident room of the hospital I worked at, I suspect the more expensive ones do the same thing but are more aesthetically pleasing and have a larger spread of light.

As for use, the idea is to expose your skin to the light. I have it sitting on my dining room table so, in the morning while I drink my coffee and surf reddit, it's hitting my face. I use it for 30 minutes a day.

u/ThatSquareChick · 24 pointsr/funny

I have one of those female urinary devices that is shaped like a funnel so I can pee standing up. I use it for outside music festivals with narsty blue portapotties, camping and whenever I want to write my name in the snow. As most people know, us wimmins mostly sit to pee. I was 28 years into peeing sitting down when I suddenly had to learn how to pee while standing. When you sit, there’s no thinking involved, gravity just does it’s thing and pee just falls out, easy! Peeing while standing though, your body just doesn’t want to do it, your brain says “holy shit don’t even try, you’ll just pee all over yourself!!” and no pee will happen. You actually have to sort of clench the upper muscles in your legs and, like, force the pee out. It’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever had to learn as an adult. My husband actually had to teach me how to do it, telling me which muscles to use and what foot placement makes the peeing easier...I always thought guys had it so easy and it took me a few weeks of practice before I didn’t have to concentrate on peeing to make pee happen. I still think it’s more convenient to get to pee wherever I want but the actual act of doing it isn’t easy at all. Get the foot placement wrong or arch your back the wrong way and you will still pee on your own shoe, the toilet seat and it will probably get on your leg too.

For the curious

u/rebeltrillionaire · 24 pointsr/pics

I think it really depends on how long you've been working out. When I was new to working out I said to myself that I would never try creatine (I still don't know why but ignorant people always seem to think it's not "natural"). However, I did a lot of reading on it and figured I'd finally give it a try last March since I kind of hit a plateau.

I started taking 5g a day (forget the "loading phase" there are no studies that actually support it) and about a week in I went from benching 200lbs x 8 to 220 x 8. I had an increase of about 10% on pretty much all my lifts! I gained 6 pounds in the first 3 weeks. I was also eating about 3500kcal a day at the time so I don't know how much of that was the creatine.

Didn't have any negative side effects apart from having to take a piss about 5 times a day due to drinking 5l of water.

Should you choose to try it be sure to buy quality creatine. Read the reviews or better yet, buy "creapure" creatine. It's manufactured in Germany and therefore strictly regulated. Most other products are from Asia/ eastern Europe and can cause all kinds of nasty side effects. It's well worth paying an extra 20% just to be sure. Creatine is still the cheapest supplement you'll find!

EDIT: I use Optimum Nutrition Creatine which is made from Creapure. At 5g/day it costs me 5$/month. Generic cheap creatine might be a dollar cheaper a month but it's not worth the risk.

>Isn’t it normal for a mid twenties man to develop his own life that doesn’t involve his parents every weekend?

Yes. YES.

Is BFsMom married, divorced or widowed? She sounds like she made an 'A' in JN101 - Making your offspring your sonsband.

If she doesn't have a spouse she needs a BF closer to her age. Or a Hitachi. Or a dog or joining a knitting circle or a rollerblading group or SOMETHING other than her pwecious baby boy.

And said offspring needs a pair of shears, to cut the fucking apron strings. He comes to town for 2-3 days, he needs to spend 20 minutes at mom's house and the rest having hot sex hanging out with you.

He's a grown man. Mommy's clingyness is HIS problem, not hers. He needs to peel her off his leg, spray her with a water bottle when she tries to hump it and tell her to Get a Life.

Ask him if his mother's responsible for his feelings. The answer should, of course, be no. Then ask why he feels responsible for hers? She's been adult (chronologically at least) longer than he's been alive. She needs to renew her relationship with her husband, seduce her pastor (not really) or do something besides expect BF to fill her time and give her life meaning.

BF needs to read and re-read my standard recommendations for a young male who hasn't quite located his balls, or who finds them in his mother's purse: When I Say No I Feel Guilty by Manuel J. Smith and No More Mr. Nice Guy by Robert A. Glover.

One possible reason he's going gray in his twenties is that his mom's stressing him out. He needs to think about that, as it's no more his job to change his mother than is being her emotional spouse.

It's his job to stop letting her fuck with his life.

u/SgtMustang · 17 pointsr/Supplements

Sorry to bring bad news, but, assuming you got the same one that Amazon calls "Nature Made High Potency", it only contains Magnesium Oxide.

Magnesium Oxide has extremely low bioavailability, and has some other issues as well. It's rust, in essence. So unfortunately you'll really not get any benefit whatsoever by taking those. Your body will only absorb about 5% or less of each softgel, meaning each is really only going to give you 10-20 mg.

Really the one you want is Magnesium Glycinate. I take the Doctor's Best brand which is unbuffered, meaning the pill contains 100% Mg Glycinate with no other lesser forms included. Glycinate is the most bioavailable form of Magnesium and is the best for supplementation. This sort of logic rings true with a lot of other supplements. Many brands will happily sell you minerals with poor bioavailability (multivitamins have this flaw especially), so it's wise to do this check for all supplements you buy.

To answer your question though, no, 400mg isn't too much. Really you can take as much as you want and your body should just not absorb what it doesn't need. 400mg is a solid daily dose though. Take it before bed, as there is a small amount of evidence to suggest it can be a sedative and help sleep.

Don't take it at the same time you intake Calcium, as Calcium does inhibit absorption of Magnesium to some extent. Taking Vitamin D/K and Magnesium in addition to a diet with lots of Calcium is a pretty strong combo, as D/K/ Magnesium all have important roles in Calcium absorption and its integration in bones. Take the D/K/ and your Calcium food in one sitting, and the Magnesium later once the Calcium has already been digested.

For a good overview of Magnesium and its effects, check Examine.com.

What toothpaste do you use, specifically? Toothpaste with SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) is what causes the reaction. SLS is used as a foaming agent in a bunch of stuff (toothpaste, shampoo, etc.) and it suppresses your sweet taste buds. Kind of like those "miracle fruit tablets" which basically have the opposite effect.

u/lessthanjoey · 16 pointsr/keto

Massive electrolyte problem!

Heart palpitations are typically potassium, cramps are typically magnesium (although maybe potassium), and lack of sodium leads to deficiencies in both magnesium and potassium (and also causes low blood pressure).

Get some lite sale or no salt or nu salt (all contain potassium chloride and are salt substitutes). Get some high-quality magnesium like this (I would eat 2 pills 2x/day until symptoms are gone then cut back a bit):

http://www.amazon.com/Doctors-Best-Absorption-Magnesium-Elemental/dp/B000BD0RT0

And get plenty of sodium! 5g/day (I add sodium by drinking broth from a bouillon cube in addition to salting my food).

Please do re-read the section of the FAQ on electrolytes.

Are you really getting the numbers in the FAQ? I'm guessing you're not, but regardless up your intake as these are pretty clear symptoms. On the magnesium side in particular make sure it's not oxide (as it's useless).

u/Serialheated · 15 pointsr/BigBrother

  1. A good, sharp chef's knife. Nothing fancy, I use a Dexter that I got for like $20 and have it resharpened. You can get a lot nicer, but you don't have to. The first kitchen I ever worked at (20 years ago) used knives almost exactly like this.

  2. A good meat thermometer. I use this one which works similarly to a ThermaPen but without the ridiculous ~$90 cost.

  3. A good cast iron skillet can be pretty versatile. Cast iron holds heat very well, which means that it's great for stuff like searing steaks.

  4. Some cheap, non-stick frying pans. I recommend getting cheap ones because once the coating starts coming off (and it always does at some point, it seems) you're going to throw them away and get new ones. You can spend $300+ like I did once and get high-end stuff like All-Clad or whatever, but even if you're super careful and use only wood and silicone utensils to cook on it, it'll still start peeling its coating, and then All-Clad will say you used metal silverware on it and your warranty is invalid, blah blah blah, and that's more hassle than you need. Just get cheap ones.

  5. Now THIS is where you can spend some legit money. A tri-ply, high quality frying pan without a non-stick coating. These are great for making pan sauces while you cook, etc. I made a chicken, garlic, and olive oil with a red wine vinegar based pan sauce with this pan (well, and some baking dishes) that was incredible. All-Clad is the industry standard but the Tramontina stuff is 1/2 the price or less and built to near the same level of quality.

  6. A nice, enameled Dutch Oven, whether it be from Le Creuset or Tramontina, these are the best for stews, soups, chili...etc. Hold heat forever, well built, and easy to clean.

  7. A good fish spatula, which I almost never use to cook fish. It's actually just the best shape for omelets, eggs, whatever. Flipping anything in a pan with a utensil like this is awesome.

  8. A thick ceramic baking dish for making things like lasagna or casseroles or even just roasting meats/veggies.

  9. Believe it or not, cookie sheets covered with heavy duty aluminum foil are how I do a lot of my oven roasting of small things, like diced veggies or potatoes. They work perfectly and being so large they're able to be spread out so they get roasted on all edges for a little extra flavor. Brussel sprouts & diced bacon in a cast iron skillet to start and then dump them onto this and blast them in the oven at 425 for 15-20 minutes and you'll have a great side dish.

  10. No matter how careful you are, you're going to get something caked on or get a dish so dirty you think it's uncleanable. For that, I recommend Barkeeper's Friend which is an awesome powdered cleaner. Add a little water, use a paper towel and this stuff to make a paste, leave it in the pan for a few minutes, then rinse. I have yet to see this fail. Awesome stuff. Saved some pans.


    There are lots of other things I use daily:

  • Federal HST/Hornady Critical Defense - $25
  • Eyes - $10
  • Ears - $65
  • More ears - $21
  • Range bag - $30

    That puts you at around $750 depending whether you have to pay tax on the handgun, transfer fees, etc.

    The remaining $250 should be enough for an introduction to handgun safety class at your local range plus a bunch of cheap ammo to practice with.

    Edit: I forgot, don't forget to account for the cost of your CCW permit. Depending on where you live and what required classes you have to take that could easily consume your remaining $250.

I just gave these a try, they are pretty cool:
miracle berries

u/greysplash · 14 pointsr/videos

As others have posted, tablet forms of these are available on Amazon

I've actually thrown "Miracle Berry" parties several times and it's a lot of fun! Just walk around a grocery store and try to think of everything that tastes sour and buy it! Some tips from my experiences... Each tablet will last you about 15-60 minutes (generally about 30 before effects diminish), not ALL the sourness goes away (lemons do not taste like pure sugar), thoroughly dissolve the tablet in your mouth (3-5 minutes) and then wait a couple more for the full effect, and lastly, bitterness is NOT the same as sourness. Eating the lemon peel will still be incredibly bitter.

Lemons/limes: Taste like the best lemonade/limeade ever

Pineapple: Incredibly delicious, but almost TOO sweet for some people

Oranges/orange juice: Really depends on the kind, but can substantially change the flavor

Hot Sauce: Vinegar almost tastes sugary, so it is both sweet and spicy

Pickled items: Again, vinegar becomes rather sweet

Cheese: Some cheeses taste like "dessert" cheese, especially sharp cheeses, cream cheese, cottage cheese, and goat cheese. Some people don't seem to be as effected by the cheeses as other though.

Beer/Wine: Not as profound as citrus, but definitely changes the flavor profile


Random note of caution: You'll end up wanting to eat a TON of citrus foods. This will give you an upset stomach if you don't moderate.

Vitamin D enchances the absorption of calcium, so if someone eats a fair amount of dairy or spinach they should be fine. Magnesium should be the one people need to look out for. It's one of the most important minerals that we don't get enough of, PLUS it works in synergy with vitamin D! If you regularly eat almonds (or pumpkin seeds), avocados, dark green leafy vegetables and legumes then you're probably fine. If not then I'd definitely recommend you start including them in your diet if possible, and if not you can supplement.

Another critical micronutrient would be K2, which helps direct calcium to your bones and teeth and prevent calcification of your arteries (big no no!). If you're thinking of supplementing Vitamin D3, you can find those two vitamins together. They are fat soluble so make sure you eat them with your nuts/seeds and avocados! :)

Lodge Cast Iron Skillets are great but you have to make sure you clean them immediately afterwards.

For something more practical (and cheap), take a look at these guys (depending on what size you are looking for. You can sautee something, throw it in the oven, and when they start to get ugly, take some Bar Keepers Friend and go at it. It will look good as new in no time. P.S., please don't pay $5 for BKF, it is at your grocery store for only a dollar or two.

I have several friends that live in Finland, so I get to go and stay for free. I spent about 4 days in Rovaniemi for skiing last year. As an American looking over the side of the bridge and seeing a partially submerged speed limit sign, I thought, "Huh. The road has been flooded by the adjacent river and frozen over." Nope. They turned part of the river in a road. The river road speed limit is about 20 mph. :)

Useful information, VITAMIN D and a sun lamp are your friends. I used this sunlamp while living in Northern France. Seasonal Depression is a real thing and it blows.

Like the kind Finnish redditor mentioned, Finns don't generally do small talk. This is almost always true. Fight the urge to chit chat American style.

Also, learn sauna etiquette as saunas are very important in Finnish culture. Your board shorts in the pool and shower aren't going to fly. There is nothing better than beer and a sauna.

Speaking of beer, Finland has some great beer, but you may have to look around for it. I've some excellent beers in Finland which had complex flavors.

Remember that you are in Europe. Travel is relatively cheap once you get there, but living up north may make it a little more inconvenient and / or expensive.

A couple of years ago we stayed at my wife's parents for a few days, in between a two week road trip of festivals and other family visits.

MIL offered to wash some of our clothes while we were at Festival #2 which we thankfully accepted and so left a load of stuff in our room.

When we returned, as we sat at the breakfast table, she quietly said, "I think there's something upstairs I shouldn't have seen".

My mind was racing... what the fuck could it be?

"I've left it on the side, next to the bed, would you mind going to get it, dear?"

Wifey went upstairs and we all sat in silence waiting for her to return.

"These?"

"Yes, darling..."

"They're my ear plugs mum, /u/globaldu snores..."

"Oh, thank goodness for that! We thought it was 'spliff' "

That's what you're up against, OP. You simply cannot explain drugs to some people. For them, prescription meds are totally fine but one toke on a joint and you're going straight to hell.

u/Hellobooboocat · 11 pointsr/xxfitness

I love my EC stack. I buy OTC bronkaid and take 25mg with a 200mg caffeine pill. Quality of caffeine seems to vary, so I get this brand

The full stack is ECA, including asprin. I don't have any heart conditions or problems with my blood work, so I don't take the asprin. Some people take fish oil instead of asprin, but most fish oil capsules are sold rancid due to how the oil is processed and can actually be bad for you. Just the ephedrine and caffeine work well for me. Boyfriend takes them too and loves it. You can take the stack long term without negative side effects, too.

I ramped up the dose slowly, taking half a pill once per day in the mid morning when I usually started feeling snackish, slowly increasing the dose over a week. If you start at the full 25/200 dose, you might feel funny. I had some shortness of breath when I did, so I cut to half dose.

It's honestly been really great. When I take it, I intermittent fast or eat very lightly during the day with a larger dinner. It doesn't completely kill my appetite, but I appreciate it because I need to be able to listen to my body.

One thing I haven't quite figured out is whether I should be supplementing more potassium. Apparently ephedrine can deplete potassium, so I have lite salt (half sodium, half potassium) and eat avocado everyday.

I think the potassium issue is discussed with EC stacks because of the danger of taking ephedrine when you have a heart condition. Potassium levels are critical in the management of some heart conditions. I'm not sure if ephedrine specifically warrants potassium supplementation, or if it's the underlying heart condition.

I bought an amazing white noise machine because my neighbor's dogs love to bark a lot at night. It's the best thing ever- you could just saw you need an extra white noise machine to help you sleep now that you don't have the noisy fan anymore.

This is the one I swear by. I even bought an extra one to travel with.

I've gone through something similar, it was during major depression. Honestly what helped was reducing inflammation within my body/brain.

I'd suggest trying lithium orotate as a first line of action along with fish oil, magnesium glycinate and maybe turmeric with a source of black pepper.

I don't know which supplements you've tried in the past but I don't think you've permanently damaged your body.
Depression can deplete and drain you completely especially any creative and positive thoughts. Start meditating even for a few minutes a day. Well-being is fostered not only with a good diet but a good mindset, there could be a lot of things draining you emotionally and physically you just need to figure out what those things are and try to correct them.

I hope you feel better soon, as someone who's been in your shoes it does get better.

u/rohyplol · 11 pointsr/xxketo

I can't believe no one has mentioned Magnesium yet! Get you some Magnesium, if you haven't already.

Being keto flushes that shiz right out of your body, leading to fatigue, anxiety, depression, and major stress. Trust me, it sucks major to be Mg-deficient -- taking just 400mg extra per day drastically reduced my anxiety symptoms that I was on the verge of treating with serious medication. GET YOU SOME MAGNESIUM.

(This is good advice for everybody, but in my experience women struggle more with anxiety and depression. Magnesium is a cheap, easy fix.)

u/mothstuckinabath · 11 pointsr/beyondthebump

I used a white noise machine with my first kid starting when she was a baby, and she still uses & loves it today. She's 10. I use one too! It's scientifically proven to help you sleep better, plus it just blocks out some noise. To be most effective, get a white noise machine that uses actual air to create the noise, rather than a digital recording. It really fills the room without sounding harsh or grating. I love this one. It's $50 but it completely gives us our money's worth.

You have my absolute sympathy, we lived in an apartment for our first baby and now we're in a house for our second, and it really is a whole different ball game.

Been using a few over the last few years:

Etymotics: good for shorter shows but after a while they start to bug me, YMMV

Eargasm: a little more comfortable than the Etymotics over longer stretches of time

EarPeace: the three different filter options are nice and easy to swap out, plus they include a third plug which definitely would've prevented that time I accidentally dropped an Etymotic onto the piss-covered floor of an Oakland bathroom and then spent most of the next band's set walking to the nearest Rite-Aid to get a pair of the shitty ones that make everything sound like you wrapped a blanket of mud around your head

u/Cro370z · 10 pointsr/intermittentfasting

It’s relatively easy. Many people think it’s super hard but it’s not. When you get hunger cramps you’re actually thirsty so drinking a lot of water is key. What helped me the first few weeks was sparkling water (La-Croix) with 0 calories and sugar. After about 3-4 weeks your body adjusts. Black coffee also helps.

My number one advice for all of you guys is buy a smart scale because it helps you keep track not just of weight but BMI, Body fat, etc. it really motivates you. Every 2-3 days measure yourself in the morning after taking a piss and you have to be fully naked no socks for accurate measurements. Maybe one day I’ll make a video on my experience with more tips as I see a lot of people struggle with this. Good luck!

You're not doing anything wrong. A common misconception is that a vibrator is a magic orgasm device. It really only gets you half way. After several years working in a very upscale adult toy store I have to recommend The Original Rabbit Pearl. There are a ton of knock offs, and not a one of them is worth the money. If you have one of the knocks, and like it, get the real thing. I would spend an hour and a half convincing a girl to buy one, and the next day she would be back with all her friends and I would sell out that weeks shipment.

That being said, the only way to have an orgasm with any toy, is to use your mind as much as your body. Oh, and warning, straight vibration, especially very fast vibration, can and does cause many women to go numb long before it gets them off. Slow heavy vibration is usually better. If you don't get the Rabbit Pearl, go for a good old fashion Hitachi Magic Wand You can get fun attachments for them, but you really don't need them.

For your specific situation, 500mcg of melatonin and 400mg of magnesium glycinate should fix you right up. Melatonin is extremely safe and nontoxic. Same with magnesium (to a far lesser extant than melatonin, though).

A note on melatonin dosages: Less is more. It is frequently sold in 5-20mg pills. This is way way way too much for most people^[1].

As far as taking other things like St. John's Wort, kava, etc: Do not start out with these. You are a young person. There are many other things to try before these things. If the magnesium and melatonin don't work for you, feel free to PM me, and I'll do my best to give advice however I can.

Here are some links to brands of melatonin and magnesium that I would recommend:

Pure Encapsulations - Melatonin 0.5mg - 60 capsules for $9.30: this is the one I would most recommend in terms of quality, and the price happens to be pretty reasonable. If it's too much, let me know.

Pure Encapsulations - Magnesium (Glycinate) - 90 capsules (120mg each) for $19.50: Once again, this is ideal but if it's too much let me know. Here is a cheaper option that will work.

Best of luck to you my friend. I have had sleep problems before, and I know all too well that they will fuck your life up. This is an important issue to me, so I'm quite serious about offering my help. Feel free to PM me. Hope this helps.

> I don't know where to start! What do I eat? How do I exercise?? What is a normal routine like? What do you guys do?

What? I do what's in the FAQ. You should too.

> I am very good at following instructions. I just need some damn instructions! Please and thank you.

Okay. Follow my instructions:


  1. Read this section on diet from the r/Fitness FAQ.
    • You weigh 164 pounds, so aim for 164g of protein daily. You might want to buy a thing of this if you're having trouble getting all your protein from meat.
    • Your BMR is 1780 (I'm disregarding your activity rate). Start with that for one week. Week two and onwards, eat 1500 calories.
  2. Find a low carb diet.
    • Keto is really easy to follow, the #1 rule is don't eat any carbs. It's not a magical weight loss solution, it just takes a lot of thinking out of weight loss.
  3. Read the section on exercise and the section on weight loss.
  4. You're going to be doing Starting Strength. Buy the book (hold out on your next video game purchase) and a gym membership (a legit gym, not planet fitness).
    • You follow the plan exactly as it is laid out. You do not modify the plan.
    • You workout three times a week -- Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.
    • Check out the Starting Strength wiki.
    • If you have to start with the bar, you start with the bar.
    • Do not use a smith machine past the first week. You do squats in the squat rack. You bench like this.
    • Form is important.
    • Form is important.
  5. Have a scoop of whey mixed in one glass of milk 0-30 minutes before you work out.
  6. Keep track of calories. Find something to do it for you, like MyFitnessPal or DailyPlate. If something isn't on there, either you enter it or you find the closest match.
  7. Read the FAQ (all of it) every weekend.
  8. Come back in a month or two and ask if you're doing it right.

Ok so I used to live in an apartment with thin walls, and as a light sleeper it drove me nuts.

Years ago, I got one of these. It sounds like a constant fan noise, but it blends in so well that you stop hearing it pretty much immediately, but it keeps outside noise from bothering you too much. I would sometimes fall asleep without it on, only to wake up repeatedly throughout the night, until I realized what the issue was.

I live in a much quieter place now, but I still find it helpful and comforting to sleep to.

To start with, here are some links about getting ready for your first time:

  • Our very own r/sex FAQ on first time sex.

  • Aunt Shakti's Action Plan for Proactive Modern Virgins - tips for you on getting ready and having a painless first time.

  • The Hymen Myth

  • You Can't POP Your Cherry! (HYMEN 101) - YouTube video

    The last two are important because pretty much everything you've ever heard about the hymen is probably false. You don't POP a hymen, and only a clumsy brute rips one. If you have one at all, it is most likely narrow and quite stretchy, so there is no need to tear it. Your bf needs to get you fully aroused and well-lubed, and then ease his way in and gently push the hymen out of the way. (This is true whether you're a virgin or not. I've had sex thousands of times and my gynecologist says my hymen is still intact.)

    A tiny percentage of virgins do have hymens that significantly obstruct the vaginal opening, but these should be dealt with by a doctor, not a guy with a battering ram. It's a simple outpatient procedure.

    Becoming Orgasmic

    Two good places to start, each with many links:

  • The r/sex FAQ on Orgasm troubles is an excellent intro.

  • Learning How to Have Orgasms has links to many great resources.

    I particularly recommend the book Becoming Orgasmic and a wand-type vibrator like the classic Hitachi Magic Wand or the battery-operated Mystic Wand. Both are comparatively powerful and easy to use, and they tend toward lower-frequency, so they feel nice and rumbly, not buzzy.

    Loosening Up

    If you are really too tight for pain-free penetration, I strongly recommend that you get a set of dilators. These are basically tapered dildos in graduated sizes, starting with one smaller than your little finger and working up to the size of a normal penis. Getting a set is a lot cheaper and easier than trying to buy individual dildos in the right sizes.

Came here for this. Toys. I had troubles like this for some time. I'd lay in bed trying forever to climax and half the time give up, frustrated and go to sleep.

I'll tell you the discoveries I made about myself, hopefully you will find something useful. I've heard a number of times that women can have G-spot orgasms, or clitoral ones. I'm the latter. I found that toys (or fingers) that I insert into myself don't work for me. I also found out that the "pocket rocket" I was using was under powered (2 AA wasn't cutting it). It was causing a lot of the problem. I now have a magic wand. I love this thing. Admittedly it is a bit over powered for me but I've adapted methods to keep from being overstimulated. The best thing is my mind can't wander with this.
I know you are mainly concerned with climaxing with your SO. I feel once you start having regular reliable orgasms on your own it may take away the frustration level enough that you can have them more easily with someone else.

u/Agent117 · 8 pointsr/PuzzleAndDragons

Caffeine is a wonderful hunger suppressant that is readily available and quite cheap. Also has an added benefit of needing less sleep.

u/t2231 · 8 pointsr/woodworking

Ears:

  • 3M WorkTunes work well but make your ears hot after a while.
  • IsoTunes Pro
  • Almost any type of foam earplug

    Eyes:

  • Mostly just use whatever is cheap. These are sometimes free after rebate at Menards.

    Lungs:

  • I prefer the GVS Elipse, but finding the accessories can be difficult if you don't have a local woodworking store.
  • I also have this respirator from 3M. It's not as comfortable as the Elipse but it is easy to find extra filters when needed.

    Face:

  • When turning on the lathe or power carving, I use the Uvex Bionix face shield. This is used in addition to safety glasses, because face shields do not provide sufficient protection for the eyes.

    Hands:

  • Cheap latex-dipped gloves for moving lumber around.
  • NoCry gloves for carving
  • No gloves at all for power tools. Ever. Wearing gloves with most power tools, particularly spinny ones, is dangerous.
u/SirynCodex · 8 pointsr/fasting

You would probably be better off just continuing the water fast and forgoing the bone broth. It could certainly make you hungrier, and its primary benefit is usually that it helps some people get through the early days, which you've already bypassed (and those are generally considered to be the hardest where hunger pangs are concerned.)

Also speaking from personal experience, I tried adding 2 cups of bone broth to my 10 day water fast after experiencing a few days of very low energy, and I had a very bad reaction to it (intense nausea, belching, and dry retching / vomiting). I mentioned it here, and the suggestion from a few folks was that the sudden influx of sodium had probably triggered it.

If you'd like to supplement electrolytes, here are some recommendations:

For sodium, Celtic Sea Salt on dissolved on the tongue or small sips of Pickle Juice. For potassium, NoSalt has a good amount per serving and can be mixed with water and taken as a shot. Magnesium can be supplemented in pill form, a lotion/spray, or by soaking your feet in Epsom Salt. These will all be most beneficial on a longer fast, although I find that supplementing sodium starting on Day 2 of my own fasts has made me feel better (less brain fog and dizziness, improved mood). As for the most beneficial amount, a general recommendation - provided on the Fasting Talk podcast - was discussed here.

HTH!

u/antihexe · 8 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Chug?

That's kiddie shit. Where I come from we just eat caffeine pills.

u/creekcanary · 8 pointsr/stopdrinking

Couple tips if you're having insomnia. Listen up cuz this is the real deal, this WILL help get you through these first few days (take it from someone who just got through it and is feeling great now).

  1. Start taking magnesium. Like, as soon as humanly possible. Get this brand here, there are a million types of magnesium, and the most common ones won't do jack for you. I've done tons of brand research and this is the good stuff.

    Take two pills as soon as you wake up, and more importantly, take two 30-60 minutes before bed. When you take it at night it will make you sleepy. You can take it on an empty stomach, it's super easy on the stomach.

    Magnesium is the 2nd most common deficiency in the developed world, AND alcohol flushes magnesium out of your body. So chances are that your body is WAY low on it, and that will mess up your sleep AND it will make you depressed. Getting your magnesium levels back up is proven to lower symptoms of depression and improve your mood, something I've experienced first hand, so it should make your moods a little sunnier.

  2. If the above doesn't work for getting you to sleep, and you want to bring in the big guns, take some melatonin at night about 30 minutes before you want to go to bed. I like this brand but there are lots online to choose from.

    BIG POINT FOR MELATONIN: Most melatonin pills are 5mg. I don't know why this is, because that's actually a massive dose. Break off about a quarter of a pill and that should be a good dose (.75-1.5mg). Also, if you go the melatonin route, try to limit your usage to 1-2 weeks of daily usage. If you take it too often, then when you stop you might have trouble getting to sleep again, cuz your body got used to it. So just take it for a 5-14 days while your body heals itself and naturally learns how to fall asleep without alcohol.

    In general, you may have to take it on faith that it gets better for now while you're hurting, but it's the OVERWHELMING experience of everyone that it does get better. Nobody, ever, in the history of the world, was having a shitty life, and then they started drinking more, and then things got better.

    But if you go to an AA meeting (which I highly recommend doing), you will meet people with 1, 5, 10, 20 years of sobriety, and every single one will tell you that their lives got insanely better when they stopped drinking. You'll hear a lot of people saying stuff like "back when I was drinking, I couldn't possibly imagine my life being as good as it is today". And I've had people close to me quit, and I've seen them go through a similar situation.

    Hang in there friend. What you're doing right now is worth every bit of effort.

No, I agree with the problem. I have tried a bunch of ambient apps and I can notice the loop edit right away and find myself waiting for it. It does not make falling asleep an easy feat when you are fully alert and waiting for the pattern to repeat.

  • Use a red light when tending to your child in the night. It doesn't disturb their sleep cycle. We were using a dimmed lamp, but our daughter would wake and stay awake and want to play. We started using this, and she would go back down A LOT easier.

Not with that attitude

u/koalaberries · 7 pointsr/AskReddit

Honestly, ear plugs are going to be your best (and cheapest) solution. You can get 200 pairs for $20.

These ones will block out practically all sound. For me the problem is that they are a bit uncomfortable and they also block out audible alarm clocks.

These are the ones that I settled on. They are perfect because they are low density, so I can't feel them at all when I am wearing them. They block out 90% of noises, but still let my audible alarm clock through.

When I use the first earplugs I linked, I use this alarm clock that vibrates the bed, that way I don't have to worry about hearing the alarm. It also works wonders.

(Note: If you think you can't sleep with earplugs in, please try the green ones. I need everything to be very specific/comfortable or I can't fall asleep, and I don't notice that I'm wearing the green ones at all.)

u/nucumber · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

at first i could sleep with them for only a few hours before they would wake me up and i had to take them out but i eventually got used to them.

i've used several of the Howard Leight brand. I bought a large box of these. i also like [these](

u/rasiahs · 7 pointsr/canadaguns

Congratulations!

  • Personally I would recommend either a Remington 700 over the 783. There's nothing wrong with the 783, but the 700's fit, finish as well as the overall quality is just superior and I'm a firm believer in the "buy once, cry once" philosophy, especially with firearms. If you buy the 783, my bet is that as you get a little more serious about shooting, you'll end up buying a 700.

  • With all that said, if you're not hell bent on buying a Remington, I personally would go with a Tikka T3 (there are many, many models). Overall it's about the same as a Remington 700 in terms of quality, but the bolt action is just silky smooth and the trigger pull is wonderful. I'm biased because I'm a bit of a Tikka fan, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

  • In regards to the .308 calibre, again I'm a bit biased because my rifle is in .308 but regardless, I think .308 is the way to go. It's easily found, and comes in a variety of weight from (approximately) 120gr to 200gr so you have a choice of choosing a lighter bullet for smaller game or a heavier bullet for larger game.

  • To pass the time while your PAL/RPAL is being processed, I strongly suggest buying high quality safety equipment You don't have to break the bank, but don't skimp. Apart from that I'd say buy a good soft case, and later down the road you can buy a hard case (my personal favourite is the Pelican 1750). Here's a little list....

  • Ear protection: Howard Leight Impact Sport and Howard Leight earplugs (Personally I use both-- you only get one pair of ears!)

  • Eye protection: Smith Aegis Arc (DS Tactical is a great company to deal with)

  • Hard case: Pelican 1750 (Production Case is a nice Canadian company with prices way better than anywhere else and great customer service)

  • Bipod: Harris Engineering (widely considered the best bang for your buck product-- I use the 9-13 inch because I'm a bit taller, but most people like the 6-9)

  • Soft case: Cabela's drag bag-- great product at a great price.


  • Torque wrench: VERY important in my opinion, as I see way too many people over-torquing their gear (i.e. scope mount screws) and messing things up. Wheeler Torque Wrench-- this is what I use. It's reasonably priced and I use it all the time when I'm working on my rifle. I know plenty of people say they're not necessary, but they'll save you from major headaches in the future.

  • Bonus: When you buy your scope, DO THIS to level it. I've tried all kinds of methods, but this by far the best (assuming your rifle is levelled first). It's so simple, but so effective.


    Anyway, I hope this helps. I'll check back in a little bit (studying for finals right now) if I think of anything else.

u/Anon6287 · 7 pointsr/ihaveihaveihavereddit
u/Dancelvr2000 · 7 pointsr/UMF

Me and my partner have been attending festivals longer than the age of many attendees. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of hearing protection that also preserves fidelity of music. I have had tinnitus that has taken 6 months to resolve. It is not fun. It can be permanent, which would be awful. I recommend Etymotic on price versus performance, but many other good ones also. Eargasm also recommended.

I also bring cheap blue foam plugs that I give to people that need them, but those degrade the music.

UMF is limited to 110 dB at a certain distance, which can certainly do hearing damage. There are louder festivals, but it is enough to cause damage. We are also almost always in first row against fencing so that is directly in front of speakers. Far enough back not as loud.

Bring earplugs. Rock concerts are very very loud and can damage your hearing. I know people debate this and often see temporary hearing loss as a 'rite of passage' for going to shows; but talk to anyone in their 50s and 60s who went to rock concerts when they were younger and they wish they would have used hearing protection. I always wear earplugs and they actually improve sound for many shows, but I did buy a pair specifically for concerts.


Be prepared to stand the entire time depending on where your seats are. The set lists that are available online are going to be the same songs they will most likely play when you see them, at least that's what JP has led us to believe in recent interviews.

My Fiance, my 3 year old (possibly ADHD) daughter, and I went on a 13 hour road trip to see family just a few weeks ago.

It went incredibly well, seriously.

My Plan:
Bring lots of dry snacks and things she normally has, and some things that are limited treats. We brought Lemon Zest Luna bars, lots of NutriGrain bars, fruit cups, pudding cups, single serving snacking crackers. We also brought a cooler for her to have her lactose-free milk and propel waters chilled.

I bought a few look and find books for her (Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Sofia the First, and Bubble Guppies), loaded her ipad with episodes of Wally Kazaam, Little Einsteins, and a couple of movies she hasn't seen in a long time (Finding Nemo and Monster's Inc). I also bought some Crayola Color Wonder coloring books and markers.

We started off the trip without any entertainment, no music/movies/books, just conversation. After about 3 hours, she fell asleep (it was around her usual nap time). After she woke up from her nap she was a little irritated that we were still on the road, so I broke out the ipad and snacks.

After she would settle down, we'd take a break from entertainment and just talk. We rationed entertainment for when she was getting uncomfortable.

Even though she's been potty trained for over a year, I dressed her in a Pull-Up in case we couldn't get to a bathroom in time, or if she had an accident while asleep (something that does happen at home).

For sleeping, we brought her own sheets, pillowcase, and mattress cover, oh and her special blanket. We brought along her white noise machine as well. This is her Dohm and it seriously saves my life on a regular basis. We did semi-normal bedtime routines in both hotels and my in-laws.

I was incredibly stressed out before the trip, just try to write a real plan down that fits with your kids. You know them best! I tried to research things to do on road-trips, but my daughter could really care less about license plates haha.

Good luck!

I'll do my "fighter's meal". It's what I eat before I go to my Muay Thai class.

Avocado with this stuff on it. 2 Roma tomatoes with lemon juice on them. Some slices of Havarti cheese. A banana. A protein shake (milk and this stuff). Multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin D. And a whole lot of water throughout.

That'll give me a high, constant energy level for the next 4 hours. If I start getting tired or hungry, I'll devour one of these.

The main goal is healthy fats, fiber, protein, and no processed foods. That'll give you a nice steady energy source with no crashes and no foggy brain.

u/southsamurai · 6 pointsr/sex

Before anything, be certain it's a welcome gift.

Next, you need to figure out if she wants a dildo, a vibrating dildo, or a non dildo vibrator. Because a dildo is inherently penis shaped and designed for insertion. Some vibrate, some don't.

With that being said, if I had to pick a single general purpose toy as a gift for someone I wasn't sure of their preferences, the lelo gigi2 would be my pick
It isn't cheap, but it's awesome.

The reason it's my top pick for general use is versatility. It can be used as a g-spot toy, a clit stimulator, penetration or just for tickling and teasing around the whole body. It's super easy to clean, incredibly durable and ergonomic. You can get them for less than their direct site price if you shop around.

My second pick is another lelo, the ina wave. More expensive than the gigi, and less versatile imo. But a really unique device.

The rabbit habit is a perennial favorite of every partner I've been with. It can be a bit intimidating for a first timer, but boy does it work.

the pocket rocket is not a dildo. But it is really great for clit stimulation. Like, really, really good. My wife has had orgasms from it that leave her unable to walk for a half hour. Plus, it's inexpensive.

The we vibe is rather one note. But that's like saying a fighter jet is a one trick wonder. This little thing is amazing at what it does.


And thenthe granddaddy of them all, the Hitachi. This thing is a legend for a reason. It's a bit much for most beginners since it's really intense. But holy crap is it intense. There's guys that can come from using this thing on their penis.

Myself, if I was getting a younger lady friend her first, I'd start at the top of this list and work down until we found what worked best

Buy this

u/willowhair · 6 pointsr/keto

I use Lyte Balance. It's an electrolyte concentrate, you add a capful to a glass of liquid. 281mg Sodium, 350mg Potassium, 50 mg Magnesium. Taste is fine, I usually say it tastes like tears. The bottle describes how to use it.

For more Magnesium, Natural CALM has 325 mg. I like the Raspberry-Lemon flavor but you can buy sample boxes of 5 flavors. I can't find the assorted box on Amazon without buying a whole display, but I've found it at health food/co-ops before.

I'm about 6 months on keto (lost 30lbs, no migraines from 2-3/monthly, lots of energy/stamina). At first I documented my electrolytes everyday now I usually just add the electrolytes when I feel like I need it. Usually I'll get a mild headache or not feel as energetic.

Saying you're a college student implies you're looking to save money? Any creatine monohydrate will do. I like to get Creapure. I use ON creatine, which is about the same price as the bulk options. You don't need BCAAs as long as you get enough protein.

Personally I don't really care for beta alanine. I do like citrulline malate, but it isn't necessary. You can buy caffeine pills for really cheap or drink a cup of coffee or something as a pre-workout.

u/nspoden · 6 pointsr/askgaybros

Just get whatever protein's cheap and you actually like the taste of. No need to spend $ on expensive shit that's essentially the same thing.

I second Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard. Cheap and good.

If you've never really weightlifted before, do something like Stronglifts 5x5 and just focus on increasing your numbers on the big lifts.

No reason to get into complex intermediate/advanced workouts with 30+ exercises when you're not even squatting at least 1.5x your body weight.

Use those noob gains and progressive overload to your advantage.

Miracle Berries

They do work. Let them dissolve on your tongue for a minute or two and try stuff. Generally sour foods will give you the most effect turning them somewhat sweet. A cup of white vinegar tastes like Apple juice. Straight lemons taste like lemonade. Though there is a distinct "artificial" sweetener taste.

Note that you probably will get sick the first time - not from the tablet, but from the ridiculous stuff you will eat and think tastes good. And be careful with alcohol. Tequila tastes good, but it doesn't mean you should drink it like juice.

u/deadsoldier · 6 pointsr/MotoUK

I use these if I'm riding for more than 15 minutes.

This is why it's a good idea.

I do occasionally use GPS directions or music through bluetooth helmet speakers but at motorway speeds I normally don't bother since it can be hard to hear over wind noise anyway.

Let's face it, none of us do 45MPH on the motorway, so I'd highly recommend everyone protecting their hearing if they like it the way it is.

A quick google search found me what recipe you're probably thinking of using... 130 cals for 8g of protein? Meanwhile this guy has 120 cals and 3x the amount of protein (24g)... and 1 gram of sugar (that 1 gram won't kill you). It also prices out to about $0.78 per serving.... the protein/calorie ratio for the homemade stuff just doesn't sit well with me...

I don't need to further justify buying powder, but assuming you're working out 3x a week that's $2.34 you'd be spending on protein a week. Don't buy 1 cup of coffee a week and you've already paid for it.

Scalp Massager. I'd consider it more of a mini gift/ stocking stuffer. It was part of the gift I got for my conservative Catholic father's birthday. The man tells his children to just get him golf balls for every gifting occasion, which gets old after awhile and does his other passions a disservice (like his love for novelty items/gadgets). This item was the jumping off point for my new golf ball supplementing gift strategy and he enjoyed it so much that he even gave it as a gift for a few of his coworkers.

u/johnsmith66 · 6 pointsr/loseit

You're pretty muscular and in good shape. I don't think you need to lose any weight.

Also, since you have higher testosterone and are more muscular than an average woman, you can't evaluate yourself based on only BMI. BMI is based on height and weight for average women, who don't have high testosterone levels. So, if I were you, I wouldn't pay attention to only BMI.

DEXA and Bod Pod are good methods for measuring body fat, but they can be expensive, as you mentioned.

If you go to a gym, you can ask them if they have a body impedance analyzer or calipers. Those aren't as accurate as DEXA or Bod Pod, but they are usually cheaper.

You can even buy a body impedance analyzer for about $33. If you use a body impedance analyzer, just be sure to follow all of the directions regarding when you use the analyzer. I think it's supposed to be used exactly 2 hours after you eat a meal. (I haven't used one in a while). They are fairly accurate. I think the accuracy is about +/- 5%.

u/tundoopani · 6 pointsr/see
u/hampsted · 6 pointsr/Fitness

Optimum Nutrition: 100% Whey Gold Standard is a good, standard protein at a decent price (that tub is huge!)

Shakes are all up to you. I tend to just mix however much protein I'm taking in a shaker with water. It's a lot less messy than making actual shakes. However, good things to put in shakes include: milk, almond milk, bananas, berries, (frozen) yogurt.

As far as too much/not enough. Anything less than a scoop is not enough. Too much is probably anything more than 2 scoops as some studies suggest that your body can only absorb so many grams of protein at one time. Also, I'd suggest taking another scoop before you go to bed.

u/Titan721 · 6 pointsr/Techno

Honestly, it's going to take some trial and error to find the right ones for you.

There's plenty cheap but decent options so that if you lose yours on a somewhat consistent basis, it won't cost too much. It might happen as you get used to carrying them with you. A lot of people do Keys, I do my wallet but YMMV.

Three Popular options: Etymotic 20 DownBeats & Earasers I used US Amazon to show examples.

The Earasers are the Pricey option, but from my understanding, they offer the best Clarity. No case either, so you'll need to look for one. There's a fully "licensed" (meaning they'll fit) case for an extra 10$.

Etymotic 20's are what I use. Again, no case but I use a cheap key-chain pill case. Sounds good to my ears.

DownBeats are the most popular option I've seen around. They're too small for my ear canals, but they work for most. Come with a case, which is nice. Nice silicon and a friend who owns a pair usually forgets they're in.

All of these might work, or none of them. You just kind of have to try them out and see what works for you. Best of luck!

This one on amazon is $58.

Based off of what you linked, I found one on amazon that is about $22 with 24 servings. The one I linked has 74 servings for $58. 74/24 = ~2.84. I then multiplied 2.84 by $22 to see where an equal price would be for 74 servings and that came out to be $63. So the one I linked is not only more cost-effective, but also cheaper in general since you'd only need to buy one and that would last you a longer time than one of the 2 pounders thus saving you shippings cost :).

u/vivalasita · 6 pointsr/xxfitness

I own this scale from Amazon. It's less than $30 and I've had it for two months now. Beyond its body fat readings, which I'm not sure of the accuracy of most scales, the Bluetooth feature is really helpful for recording results to your phone in apps like Apple Health or My Fitness Pal. The scale also has a phone app that is pretty decent by itself; again, like any piece of technology, it will not be 100% accurate but if you're measuring yourself as well as weighing yourself consistently it can certainly help with organizing your data trends wirelessly.

u/EpistaxisAnus · 6 pointsr/cringepics

I think Optimum Nutrition offers the best quality/price ratio out there (it also scored the highest in /u/heyf00L 's link). It also tastes okay (although if you drink it with water and not milk you might gag a little).

http://www.amazon.com/health-personal-care/dp/B000QSNYGI

What I do is take a shaker bottle, fill it with heavy cream and then dump a heaping scoop of the ON whey in. It's about 2,500 calories and a fuckload of protein. It tastes repulsive and I chug it in 3 seconds and I feel a bit sick/wonky for the next 30 minutes but man does it help with gains.

u/mou5 · 6 pointsr/Fitness

Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein seems to dissolve very easily for me. I've never used a blender, and don't own a shaker bottle - just use a spoon. They label it as "instantized."

  • in water: dissolves completely in ~10 seconds (seems to be no clumps)
  • in 2% milk: dissolves about 95% in ~20 seconds (a few tiny clumps float back to the top, but definitely no "cement mixer" - swirling a bit makes it easy to drink)

    As a side note, it's the first and only protein powder I've ever used, and I think it tastes pretty good. I've heard several people recommend it as one of the best tasting. I assume their other products, such as the casein protein, are good too.

u/crazindndude · 6 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

Sorry, but I feel the need to correct some things here.

  1. Eggs are cheaper than whey. At your local grocery store you might be able to get a dozen eggs for $2. Each egg contains 6.3g of egg protein, which comes out to 2.6 cents per gram. You can get 5lbs. of Optimum Nutrition Whey for $40. It contains 77 servings, each with 24g of whey protein. That comes out to 2.1 cents per gram. In addition, whey isolate/concentrate are vastly superior to egg protein because they absorb much more quickly. Whey protein has anywhere from 150% to 200% the bioavailability (ease of absorption into muscles) as egg.

  2. Concentrate vs. isolate. Whey isolate is the purest form of whey protein, containing (I believe) >98% whey. This means it has the most actual protein per gram of stuff. Whey concentrate is diluted with other fillers, so you get less actual protein per serving. The flip side is that isolate, being very rapidly absorbed, may go to waste unless your body needs it immediately. This is why whey is recommended for post-workout, when your muscles are desperately in need of protein. Casein protein, on the other hand, is a slow-absorbing protein. Casein is recommended right before bedtime, so your body can slowly absorb it through the night.

    The rest, I agree with. You should not be getting 100% of your protein intake from powders. Eat protein-rich foods like eggs, meat, beans, and dairy. Balance your protein intake with complex carbs such as whole-grain breads, pastas, and rice. Get a solid vitamin/mineral intake by taking a multi and eating lots of different vegetables and fruits. Aim for naturally sweetened supplements whenever possible. It may taste a little bland, but it's better than throwing all those chemical sweeteners into your system.

That said, a good vibe is a girl's best friend.

Edit: I should add, it really depends on what you're going for and how much you want to spend. Internal or external? Do you care how loud it is? Waterproof? There's a ton of options. Honestly, you're probably going to end up buying a few duds before you find out what you really like. If you have an adult store in your area, it might be a good idea to stop by and take a look. Don't be embarrassed. They sell those things because people want to buy them.

Edit 2: Hitachi Magic Wand is a good place to start. It doesn't look like some floppy pink, glittery vibrating dildo (which, you know, yikes, should anyone find it, which I'll freely admit is a slight worry of mine). It works quite well as a toy and also as a regular muscle massager, so, hey, you get more for your money!

Years ago I bought a box of 200 sets of Howard Leight Laser Lite NRR32 disposable plugs. I use them on the motorcycle, at the track, for sleeping, and hand them out to friends and family members any time we need protection. Everyone loves them. They are by far the most comfortable I have ever used and a single set will last at LEAST 2-4 weeks for sleep use (used nightly). I still have the box and have maybe gone through 1/2 to 2/3 of it. It was < $20.

I like this ones. They’ve become a necessity for me on trips.

u/AromaAttack · 5 pointsr/hsp

Finally a topic I'm passionate about!

I don't have a specific answer for you, but that's because I have a lot of experience with ear plugs, and I know taste and fit will vary immensely from person to person.

Unfortunately, that means the best advice I can give you is try a whole bunch of different ear plugs, and see which ones fit best and work best for your purposes.

Judging from my experience, I'm certain you're going to need more than one type of earplug.

A bunch of tips:

  1. This place: http://www.earplugstore.com/

  2. Check out their assortment packs.

  3. They make smaller women's and slim fit earplugs. I'm a fairly large man, and they don't fit me perfectly, but if I just want to take the edge off of the ambient sound, I use them. They muffle everything, but not to the same degree as my regular sized earplugs. That may not be an option for you depending on the size of your ears, but it's an option for some.

  4. For music and movies, I've tried Downbeats, but they don't fit me very well. You may have more luck, and there are other brands worth considering. Search for earplugs for musicians. They preserve the full range of audio frequencies, but just lower the volume. (Regular earplugs will tend to block out some frequencies more than others.)

  5. My favorite.

  6. Buy disposable earplugs in bulk on the internet.

  7. Those single use disposable earplugs -- you can use them more than once, but they do lose some of their blocking power. (Depending on the situation, this might be an advantage.) But once they get a little too soft and squishy, they're done.

  8. I often wear earplugs almost all day like you're planning. And I sleep with them every night too. That's doable, but do take them out for a decent amount of time each day. If they are in too long, even your favorite earplugs can become irritating. (And I know some people do have allergies to certain earplug materials.)

  9. Noise dampening earmuffs are also great.

  10. Keep a pair of earplugs with you in a little case at all times. You never know when you're going to want them.

    If you have any questions or just want to talk earplugs, let me know. Like I said, I'm an earplug aficionado!

    As for the rest of you, I can't recommend the earplug lifestyle to people on this subreddit strongly enough.

    Earplugs are like a warm, cozy blanket for your mind.

    Once you start using them regularly, you'll wonder how you ever managed to live without them.

We have a Dohm white noise machine; it's the sound of air rather than digital sound and I love it. We got it for our twins but I sleep with it on for me at this point. Perhaps white noise would help you.

Here's what we have:

Try this stuff....Barkeeper's Friend. It will get rid of a lot of that deposit stuff. It's an acid/cleaner...you make a paste out of it with a little water, rub it in for a minute or two and then...well let's just say that I've seen it work miracles. Better than any other normal cleaner I've used (and I've tried them all). It's fine for tiles too. Try it before you try anything else.

I've used ER20s for years and highly recommend them, I've never had an issue with them, but then again I don't really get in the pit anymore.

These are the comfiest earplugs I've used, and that they're individually wrapped can come in handy. May I suggest cutting them (or any earplug) in half for sleeping purposes so they don't pull out as easily when you're moving your head around on your pillow. I cut mine approximately in half, but cut at an angle so there's still a little tip to pull them out by conveniently.

Maybe this could work for you? Simply use a stall and stire it in a man/rasor bag?

u/kissthepan · 5 pointsr/doommetal

Just basic ones for concerts will be fine. The foam plugs are more for deadening sound without regard for any distortion (like who cares about the subtleties of chainsaw noise). The sound quality won't be ideal. Concert or musician's earplugs will just bring everything down a bit with little distortion.

These are what I have: link.

Well worth it. These bands will ruin your ears. When I saw Sleep I almost wanted them to.

u/jsmith50 · 5 pointsr/BipolarReddit

>I know it's not as good as medicine.

There haven't been as many studies as with many drugs, but so far the research is at least suggesting they're as good or better than most antidepressants. So good, in fact, that you have to watch out for mania. Using them in the middle of the day seems to reduce this risk, but again, not a lot of research.

>I am having financial issues and it's kind of expensive

This one seems pretty reasonable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000W8Y7FY

u/8-BitBaker · 5 pointsr/misophonia

If the earbuds aren't blocking enough noise, try ear plugs coupled with actual headphones. You will be able to turn the music down less because the earplugs are dampening the outside noise. On REALLY bad days I do this. Any over the ear headphone will work... I use these ear plugs.

A few key facts:
1.)Creatine has been proven to work. Source:http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/873.html

2.) 5 Grams a day is usually advised on the SIDE of your creatine container. 5 Grams is around a teaspoon. Source:http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=Mass+of+one+teaspoon+of+Creatine+monohydrate

3.) Cycling creatine is key. Source: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/phano85.htm

4.) Creatine is cheap. 14$ a serving. Source: http://www.amazon.com/Optimum-Nutrition-Creatine-Powder-600g/dp/B002DYIZEO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1292895221&sr=8-1

A few comments on what ever people have posted. You should already be drinking a gallon of water a day. If you are don't worry about that. Creatine is usually grainy. It tastes like nothing. Throw it in a Protein shake. Do not expect to become god after taking it. Your mileage may vary. Penultimately, qho cares if you gain water weight? Odds are, you're not Arnold yet or anywhere close. Five extra pounds of water isn't going to break you. Finally, watch out for Grade A Bro science and stick to the good sources. Trust the NIH.

Just FYI, Asporotate is a proprietary blend that includes magnesium oxide, which is commonly used as a laxative. You may have better results with regular taurate, orotate, or glycinate versions of magnesium, taken by themselves. I use the Doctor's Best stuff which is chelated glycinate. Chelation increases absorption.

u/argella1300 · 5 pointsr/TwoXADHD

Yes, do it. Even if it turns out you don't have ADHD, you'll at least have ruled that out and can focus on getting treated for whatever else you may have.

Also: talk to the department that runs student disability services at your school. It's slightly different everywhere, sometimes they're connected with the tutoring center, sometimes they're part of the general administrative services, it varies from school to school. They can help you out with getting testing and filing paperwork with the school so you can get accommodations. Especially for exams, since going by how you describe how your ADHD affects you, taking your exams in an alternative environment would probably do you a world of good.

Another thing, consider picking up a white noise machine from Amazon. The sound they make doesn't sound all that different from when the air conditioning is blowing through the vents, and they're effective at blocking out annoying noises all around you.

u/BrutalHonestyBuffalo · 5 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

I have a ton of muscle spasms - it's honestly what causes me the most issue of all my symptoms.

Honestly - the two things that helped me most were PT (Muldowney Protocol) and CHOWING on Magnesium (which helps with muscle relaxation - and pooping!).

I took Gabapentin, Diclofenac, and occasional Tramadol - they all help, but once I layered this stuff on top of it - I had a lot of success. I took 4 a day. For the record - it is elemental magnesium (a little different than what you typically get in a grocery store, but not sure how, exactly) - it was recommended by my doctor who is a huge EDS advocate/ally.

I also struggled to pee - so in addition to all of this, I do a lot of kegels on top of ab work outs. Check out this app - it has really helped!


Can't say if it's just EDS you are dealing with - but I can most certainly relate to a lot of what you experienced.

Let me know if you have any questions - I usually type out a much longer response, but short on time today!

Edit: I noticed someone else mentioned muscle relaxers here - I just had to chime in and say these were not good and made my spasms worse. I relaxed INTO my injuries and it only causes my S-Curve scoliosis to get worse. I had to maintain some of the spasms and work to strengthen my muscles before I could take the muscle relaxers without further injuring myself.

Get a white noise maker. Not a white noise app on your phone or computer - it's not the same as a real white noise maker with a fan. I use this one.

I get triggered by car and motorcycle engines revving. I live near a military base with tons of idiots revving their idiotmobiles down the street - the sounds aren't loud, but if I can hear them (usually when I'm trying to sleep at night), I'm very uncomfortable. The white noise maker has made a huge difference in my quality of life.

I got one of these. It's not electronic and just like a fan type thing. I just wanted a white noise machine... Not waves or crickets or jungle sounds, etc. This works wonders...I live along a busy road near an airport and this lets me sleep so much better. No looping sounds

Amazon's always really bad about this. They'll invent MSRPs that never existed just to bring it down to normal prices so "you can save" 30% on basically everything always.

1300 calories is way to low, IMO. I'm muscle building and losing some fat and I eat 1600-1800 calories a day. 22-23% body fat for a woman is healthy.

Uping your protein intake is important for muscle building and helps burn fat, too.

Carbs is what really makes it hard to lose body fat. There have been a lot of research on it.

My intake is:

Protein: 150-250grams

Carbs: 50-100 grams

Fat: <65grams


Personally, this is just my diet, I'm not saying that everyone should follow it, just a general idea. (I'm 5' 6'5" and I weigh 138-140lbs but I look about 120 because of muscle)

I hate cardio, I really do, aside from swimming, but cardio helps burn fat quicker and tightens your muscles. While weightlifting builds your muscles and body tone.

How often do you weightlift?

I suggest getting a BFP Hand Scale or something similar to this:

If it is for convenience get a headband and have it hold your earbuds in place.

u/JustinUti · 5 pointsr/Fitness

I see. You can always just eat a chicken breast, or some eggs, cottage cheese, spaghetti with ground turkey, whatever. Tons of options.

IMO, there are tons of protein powders that taste just fine. Plus, who really cares how it tastes? Throw in a scoop in 8oz of water or milk and chug it down in 5 seconds.

https://www.amazon.com/Optimum-Nutrition-Standard-Double-Chocolate/dp/B000QSNYGI?th=1

Tastes like a chocolate milkshake, mixes fine with a spoon with no lumps. Costs $55 for a 5lb tub of it that has 74 scoops/servings, each being 24g protein.

$55/74 servings = 75 cents a serving, if you mix it with water.

Good luck getting that cost efficiency and health balance somewhere else. Will last you over two months if you just take one scoop per day.

What protein powders have you tried?

u/tooskinny · 5 pointsr/Fitness

Well also note that I have zero muscle tone. (If I had muscles they would probably show through at this BF%). I used my trusty Omron Monitor to measure the BF%.

I've used it on my boyfriend and he's about 6% with visible abs so that seemed about right. (We plan on getting calipers soon) My BMI right now is about 16 (normally 17.9). Many companies are starting to not allow models with a BMI under 18 to work for them.

I think that people tend to overestimate the body fat of models. And forget that appearance is dependent on amount of muscle (along with amount of body fat).

Yes, it gets better. It might take awhile, but it gets better.

Our twins didn't fully sleep through the night for 11 months. It was not a fun experience; honestly I was a zombie for basically a year and I really don't remember much of it. We were woken up 3-6x per night that entire time. Not fun.

BUT, now, our girls are a month shy of being 2 and they sleep like champs. I honestly can't remember the last time I had to get up in the middle of the night to do something for them. They go down in their cribs between 7:30-8pm, we close the door, they might whine for 5 minutes or less, and then they're asleep until we wake them up in the morning.

Do you have some sort of white noise machine? We have one of these in their room and it works great (in fact we have one in our bedroom too).

Get some caffeine

Maybe some Ephedrine (I use Synephrine, ephedrine's little brother)

And for me personally I find I function better when I add in some L-tyrosine

Finally I like to add in some L-theanine which helps prevent any kind of jittery feeling.

I usually use:

  • 100-200mg of Caffeine
  • 100mg of Synephrine (Start lower at 25mg and work your way up to a dose that works for you).
  • .5-1g of L-Tyrosine
  • 100-200mg of L-Theanine

    Everything I use would cost you $40 and it will last quite a while.

  • A milk frother that doubles as a hot chocolate maker.

    For the executive (like my mom, these are all things she likes):

  • A high quality thermos for coffee on the way to work.

  • A smart home setup, maybe an echo and some smart outlets or the google home. Really good for turning lights on/off, asking for the weather and news, listening to music, etc.

  • A FitBit to help her keep healthy even working long hours.

  • A popcorn maker that allows you to make non-microwaved popcorn in the microwave.

  • A white noise machine. If she has any trouble sleeping this thing is AMAZING.

Depends how far away you are from any speakers.

85dB is more than sufficiently loud.

110dB-130dB is what you can expect.

These are popular (pick correct size, most people are medium, but I almost always use the smallest buds with my headphones, so small would likely fit me best). Comes with a case.

These aren’t as high-fidelity, but do the best at reduction

u/duck-duck--grayduck · 4 pointsr/hsp

Have you tried any kind of mindfulness practice? Meditation, deep breathing, autogenic training, guided imagery, that sort of stuff? Doing these things regularly can sort of bring down your baseline level of anxiety, and then doing something like deep breathing in the moment can help calm you down when you're having anxiety.

That time when you're alone for a while would be an excellent time to do some meditating. If you'd like some resources for how to meditate, let me know and I'll dig some up. :)

A good deep breathing technique is to just close your eyes, breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, then breathe out through your mouth for 8 seconds, focusing your attention on the sensation of your breath entering and leaving your body. Some people find it helpful to have words they think of while breathing, like I say "here" while breathing in and "now" while breathing out.

You can find videos on YouTube for guided meditations, autogenic training, or guided imagery.

Also, how about ear plugs, like these?

u/adrun · 4 pointsr/xxfitness

The science of the optimum metabolic window (which prompts the recommendation to eat w/in 30-45 minutes of working out) is pretty shaky. It may or may not be necessary to consume some protein and carbs to fuel optimum muscle repair during that time, but it certainly won't hurt! For me, eating right after a workout helps stave off the "oh my goodness I'm so hungry I could eat eight hippos" impulse and headaches, too.

I also think of a post-workout protein shake or protein bar as my source of extra workout-day calories, so I don't have to mess with my meal planning for the rest of the day. I like Optimum Nutrition's whey protein to mix with milk or coffee and the Think Thin protein bars. (Hate the branding, love the macros.)

I would not use a protein powder with creatine in it. Depending on how much protein I get in a day from normal food, I'll adjust how much whey powder I'm taking in (to meet my ~1g/lb body weight/day level). If creatine is mixed in the protein, that means my creatine dose would differ between days. This may be bad because 1) I may not get the 5g dose that is suggested or 2) I may get more than suggested and I'll piss it out which is a waste.

I use this whey: http://www.amazon.com/Optimum-Nutrition-Standard-Vanilla-Cream/dp/B000GISU1M/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1377492870&sr=8-5&keywords=on+protein+vanilla+ice+cream

Well, they are usually vegan. The top taurine and creatine supplements on amazon are vegan.

It's absorbed differently. All you need is enough iron at the end of the day, and plants provide plenty as long as you eat a well balanced diet.

Mine didn't have a cord connecting them, but the carrying case helped at least.

There are three kinds of people who don't wear earplugs to live music events:

  1. People who are unaware how loud it can be (especially near the front or a speaker stack)
  2. People who are unaware that hearing damage is permanent and cumulative
  3. People who know 1 and 2 but don't value being able to hear well as they get older

    The choice is yours: earplugs now, or hearing aids later.
u/omggkittens · 4 pointsr/June2019Bumpers
  1. A Dohm sound machine - seriously, this thing is amazing. My toddler still uses hers and my husband and I actually bought one for our room and we use it every night. It goes with us when we travel and it's essential to good sleep for us.
  2. Gummy bear night light - it must be red! This was recommended to me from a sleep class we took before our toddler was born and it's amazing for middle of the night feedings. You squeeze the belly and it turns on and there's a separate adapter I recommend buying so you don't run out of batteries so quickly. The red light helps your baby (and you!) fall asleep quickly so you don't have sleep that's even more disrupted.
  3. Seamless underwear - I wasn't expecting a c-section and ended up having an emergency one and I had to have my mother-in-law run to Macy's to find some seamless underwear for me because regular underwear hit exactly at my c-section scar and was extremely uncomfortable. She picked up some Calvin Klein ones and I've since purchased several pairs and I really love them, even when not pregnant, but it was something that I wasn't expecting to need. (I would find the link for them but I'm currently at work so I'll edit it later with the link, haha)

    Splurge item: a baby monitor with a camera and app on your phone. We originally used a motorola one because I was convinced I needed a separate little screen and I could still see it on my phone through an app, but we recently bought a Nest camera and I love it. I love being able to see what time she goes to bed if we have a sitter, I can tell when she's gotten up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom - even if she doesn't wake us up and its several hours later... overall, I just really love it.

It is not particularly handsome, but I do think it looks better than many other models out there and it is small enough to put away in a cabinet when you are done with it.

u/alexanabolic · 4 pointsr/nutrition

I found caliper to be the more precise of all way of measuring, I have a couple of model, but they are kind of hard to use in a consistent way.

Like you, I want to monitor my progress, especially monitoring that I am not loosing muscle or a minimum amount while cutting fat. In the past, I did loose a lot of muscle while loosing the last 20 pounds, so this time I just want to be sure this is in check.

Unfortunately, using caliper is kinda a pain in the ass to use and the slight variation in pitching the fat, or the emplacement and the measurement is off and hard to compare.

Personally, I am using this body fat scale:

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01N1UX8RW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

​

It measure your weight and you body fat, your lean body mass, etc and it sync with your phone automatically. Bio Impedance is not reliable if you want to know your true bodyfat percentage (can be off by +- 4%), but to track your progress it is awesome if you use it in the same circumstance. I weight in the morning at the same time every morning after I wake up and pee. On the other hand, in my case, the bodyfat this scale is estimating me is the same as what I measured using my calipers. So for me, it is pretty accurate while being very cheap and very very convenient.

u/swingthatwang · 4 pointsr/keto

fyi i really recommend this magnesium. only Mg that's worked for me without stomach issues and i've tried all the types.

i also recommend not trying any carby replacements or substitutes. i'd fall off the wagon with bread-like things or fake sugar substitutes. however i've been doing great thus far cutting all that out. natural whole foods only. just none of that mess. full on pure keto.

and making a chart, 30 days or 100 days, where you cross off each box for each day, makes it REALLY helpful. esp if you use a big fat red marker. :)

edit: if you use sweet stuff, do NOT use maltodextrin or malitol. it's the devil's ass crack when it comes to weight loss. use liquid stevia (Sweet Leaf or Trader Joe's brand) or Swerve / erythitol.

u/vaanjie · 4 pointsr/PMDD

I use the app Flo in order to track my PMDD and take HTP-5 and ashwagandha root capsules during those two weeks. I feel like they help my cravings, anxiety, and depression. I have been prescribed Prozac for depression and anxiety since I was 13, and I make sure not to forget taking it (my dosage remains the same).

At night I have trouble falling asleep, so I take these magnesium supplements a few hours before bedtime. I also try to meditate for at least 5 minutes every night using the app Insight Timer. It helps me with impulse control and not overreacting to things. All of this took many years to figure out. I hope you find something that brings relief!

EDIT: I didn't know there were any possible reactions of HTP-5 and antidepressants, but apparently the main warning for supplements containing 5HTP is “do not consume if you’re taking antidepressant drugs.” It can lead to serotonin syndrome.

I'm going to stop taking HTP-5 for now and just take the ashwagandha root supplements, which don't seem to have negative interactions with antidepressants. Let me know if I'm wrong.

Actually, there is another option. Not one that I would recommend for daily use, but when you gotta go (and can't sit down) ...

u/anonworkacct · 4 pointsr/Fitness

As a note, PWO are generally really expensive for what you get. You can generally get the raw ingredients for much cheaper, tailor it to your preferred proportions, and throw it into your protein shake or make your own PWO without getting as many random add-on ingredients that don't really do much that PWO love to throw in.

The main ingredients, caffeine, beta-alanine and creatine are dirt cheap and you can mix them to your own proportions. E.g. C4 $35 for 60 servings comes out to ~$0.58/serving for 1.5g beta-alanine, 135mg caffeine, and 1g creatine.

Doing it yourself with 1.5g beta-alanine =~$0.08, 200mg caffeine =~$0.08, and 5g creatine =~$0.13 or $0.29/serving to get more caffeine and the recommended amount of creatine. You can get it even cheaper ordering in bulk powders.

You'll probably also want to get a cheap food scale ~$10 to get the correct amounts since scoop measurements can be unreliable. Definitely get a scale if you mess with powdered caffeine.

edit: mathed wrong on cost/serving of C4

It's true that weight doesn't matter on its own. It's just a tool that we use to track fat loss. But depending on how quickly you're losing weight, it would be very difficult to put on muscle at the same rate, especially from cardio, as opposed to weight training. Muscle growth caps out around a couple pounds per month for most people. The world's strongest man may be around 400 lbs, but he can also deadlift over 1,000 pounds. It's just important to keep some perspective on that, because none of us are on his level.

It sounds like the psoriasis could play a role in the fat percent reading. You could try to use one of the impedance testers that goes through your hands (like this one). But I think the bigger factor is that the impedance fat percent testing just isn't that accurate to begin with. It can be influenced by all kinds of thing. When I test mine at night versus the following morning, it can easily differ by 4 or 5%. So I don't really trust it. The calipers are a good alternative, as long as you're careful to use them correctly, and the same each time.

I've been lifting heavily for some time now (while eating on a deficit), and muscle growth has certainly happened, but not quickly enough to stop weight loss. I find it's a lot harder to track getting healthy without being able to put some numbers to it. To each his own, though.

u/KEM10 · 4 pointsr/SubredditDrama

The BMI ratio supposedly shows how overweight someone it, it's not like there's a good test that's easy to administer to show body fat % instead of this.

u/Murcus · 4 pointsr/gainit

Supplements and a bunch of pills is not necessary. I read this guy's book and he pretty much lays it out for ya. He recommends only Gainers and Protein Shakes. Pills and such are just a way to empty your wallet fast!

A lot of people on this sub really like this Gainer and this "Gold Standard Whey" ... Fish Oil is a De-inflamatory and helps to reduce muscle soreness. Those are the three I use.

Search this subreddit if in doubt, and do some research. Unfortunately a lot of the crap online is catered toward helping fat people loose weight. Find communities (like this one) and get advice straight from the skinny guys who have gotten bigger.

And if you're diet doesn't include every vitamin, start taking multi vitamins. You must be healthy, not just mad. Initially since you weigh 100Lbs you may want to do the Seefood diet: You see food, you eat food.

DO NOT GIVE UP! I let work get me down last year (working 150+hours a week) and stopped lifting. All I had time for was running. I finally got back into lifting this month. I could be pretty set right now if I kept at it.

u/driftw00d · 4 pointsr/leangains

They are completely unnecessary, unless you are choosing to do fasted training. That is, your Stronglifts session would begin not until at least the 10-12th hour of your fast, and your first meal of the day would be your post workout meal. Since you are basically working out with nothing at all in the tank, the BCAAs are there to prevent possible muscle catabolism during your workout. BCAA specifically are recommended only because they are 'pure protein', so 10grams of BCAA are 10 grams of protein (40cals). If you were to use the-next-best-thing, which is probably whey protein isolate (which contain BCAA, other amino acids, and some carbs) you'd need over 100cals of the whey to get the same amount of protein, which could break the fast.

Anyway, I only take them on Saturdays before a fasted workout. During the week I have a small meal, usually chicken breast, at around noon, followed by a workout around 3. In this case the BCAA are completely unnecessary because of the previous small meal. I do prefer and feel I have a better workout doing the fast training but because of scheduling I can't really do it that way during the week.

Other than that, food is always the preferred source of protein. Chicken breast on sale for 2$/lb. is about as cheap as it gets. If you find it difficult to hit your protein macros for a day, whey protein is a solid option to get about 24g protein, 3g carbs, 1g fat in a scoop. This stuff is pretty highly regarded and if you get the 5lb tub its nearly 80 servings, at about 68cents per serving. So actually quite cheap for the protein. For reference, a 2lb tub of purple wraath (EEAs) is about the same price.

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard. I was looking for a new one last month and found some that were cheaper but when you figured out the cost per gram of protein, Optimum Nutrition was nearly the cheapest and they have a better reputation than the ones that were slightly cheaper. Surprisingly, Vitamin Shoppe has it for the same price as Amazon, so you can pick it up in person if you want.

u/b-nasty55 · 4 pointsr/keto

Most of the protein powders have very little carbs. They generally use artificial sweetners for taste. This (http://www.amazon.com/Optimum-Nutrition-Standard-Double-Chocolate/dp/B000QSNYGI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1317780937&sr=8-1) is one of the best, and decently cheap if you can't find any local brands. Walmart/Sam's have a few varieties that are cheaper, but usually don't taste quite as good.

As for bars...Quest Bars are pretty decent. They're all natural proteins and fats (no sugar alcohols or other crap) and stevia (I think). Again, pricy, but not out of line. I avoid bars like the plague because I find them kinda gross, but they are nice in a pinch. The brownie one is good (free samples http://www.questproteinbar.com/freesample1)

I use two types of earplugs.

Vibes High Fidelity Concert Earplugs - Hearing Protection Ear Plugs Noise Reduction for Concerts, Fitness Classes, Motorcycle, Sensory Disorders (Tinnitus Relief & Autism) - As Seen on Shark Tank https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018WPOQSG/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_rWqODbPD5326E

These for when I need things toned down but don't need to be aware enough to, say, notice someone coming up behind me. So, places I feel safe. Theyre fairly comfortable. Designed similarly to earbuds. Easy to take with you and keep clean.

Eargasm High Fidelity Earplugs for Concerts Musicians Motorcycles Noise Sensitivity Conditions and More (Ear Plugs Come in Premium Gift Box Packaging) - Blue https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019M576XW/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_OXqODb425E193

These for when I have to be aware of my surroundings but can't deal with all of the sound because it's overwhelming. It makes things manageable on a good day, but they wouldn't do much on a bad day. They're really, really comfortable. Easy to take with you. Require a bit more care than most earplugs.

Both will let you hear conversation/tv/etc without issue.

If I may add to your addition, there are two models of the Hitachi Magic Wand, the Hv-250 and the Hv-260. I got my wife the Hv-260 for Christmas, thinking that the newer model is better, but a lot of people who have used both seem to prefer the Hv-250. I dunno. The 260 gets the job done for both of us. Also, a lot of people also prefer a variable speed control for it because it can be rather intense the lower speed works for both of us and the higher speed is just numbing with no pleasure whatsoever. I've been thinking of getting a speed control but I think i use it more than her, and I enjoy the speed of the lower setting.

u/UncleHuggedMeFunny · 3 pointsr/AnimalCollective

Hey bud! I've been to my fair share of shows, and I saw Animal Collective back in 2013 in Madison, WI. Some tips about concerts and how to enhance your experience:

Earplugs are a must. These are the pair I own, and they work super well; I go to a wide variety of shows in different sized venues (ty Minneapolis) and I've worn those every time. I used to go earplugless, but when I went to see TOBACCO last year, some shoegaze band opened for them and they were literally the loudest fucking thing I've ever heard, ran to get some earplugs, and it was still painfully loud. Some bands like to crank it, generally AnCo keeps it on the lower end but it's never a bad idea to invest in saving your hearing. That's the end goal, isn't it?

When I saw AnCo, I went solo. Senior year of high school, travelled 50 miles on a Wednesday night to see em. Met some really cool guys at the show, shot the shit. Chances are, there's gonna be a fair amount of weed in the crowd. Toke if you want, but some venues are super vigilant while others really don't give a shit.

My general rule of thumb is to get there a bit before doors for a band I either really really love or a show that's gonna attract a big crowd so I can get up front. I'd follow this if you want to be right up against the stage, or at least be there around doors if you want the authentic 9th-row-in-the-pit experience. Being pushed far back kinda sucks, especially if there's an NBA player-sized person standing right in front of you.

Pretty much just go there, scream the lyrics, dance your ass off and vibe. There's gonna be quite a few pretentious hipsters who stand off to the side and just stoically watch them while sneering at anyone who dances. Fuck em, dancing to the boys was one of my best memories. Don't think drunk assholery will be an issue, but pretty much every single show I've been to has involved me being stuck next to someone who can't handle their liquor, be it tiny women at Beach House forcing their way to the front of the stage halfway through the set (and literally standing sideways, wedged between me and my friend) or some large, leather-coat-wearing fuckwad at Com Truise who has been sexually harassing as many women as possible. If you spot one nearby, don't let them harsh your mellow. If they're bumpin into you a lot and you want them to stop, just tell them to give you some space while being as smiley and polite as possible and they'll usually wander off. If they get aggressive, just push towards another spot in the crowd. I doubt there'll be many bad drunks in the crowd, but it never hurts to be a lil mentally prepared.

Anyway, pm me if you have any other questions, and I hope you have as good of a time as I did!

EDIT: Oh yeah, download a Mad Libs app on your phone. Play it with the people standing near you when you're waiting in line/between bands, it's a perfect icebreaker and it's pretty fun.

u/Robolo · 3 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

So, I've posted this before, but I like to spread the "love", as it were. This handy tool has helped many of my lady acquaintances (including a few who claimed never to have had an orgasm before) enjoy themselves. I actually have a very sensitive clitoris, so direct stimulation is a no-go; instead, I just go at it right through pants and undies, even when I do it without plug-in stimuli. I second the "watch porn" advice too!

u/TwoForTuesday · 3 pointsr/sex

I haven't heard of many women who failed to orgasm with one of these. Here's one review from the front page:

>Wow! This is the best money I've ever spent. Of course, I don't know how this will work for others, but based on the good reviews, my husband and I ordered this. It arrived today, and I couldn't be happier. I am in my thirties and have never (ever) been able to have an orgasm. After reading books, trying another toy, and working tirelessly alone and with my hubby on this, I was beyond frustrated. I got this today and within 5 or 10 minutes, I finally knew what all the fuss was about. It worked for me! I'm sure it's wonderful for sore muscles, too. ;) Normally, I wouldn't write a review about so personal of a topic, but I know how embarrassing and frustrating my struggle was, so I'm hoping this might be of help to someone else.

It's quite possible that you're less sensitive than the average girl, but that doesn't mean you're not sensitive at all, so you should still be able to orgasm. I am no expert but from my experience with women, the mood, and how relaxed you feel are key to acheiving orgasms, and how powerful they are.

Could you give us a little more information on what you've tried on your own? What have you tried fantasising about? Have you tried porn? Have you researched female masturbation techniques?

u/BackLightBand · 3 pointsr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

I got a pair of downbeats high fidelity plugs. They are pretty awesome. They don't dull out any of the high or low end sound so it sounds like what you normally hear only quieter. Plus they are not even easily noticeable when they are in your ears.

u/Not_Dark_Yet · 3 pointsr/sex

So recently virgin, never masturbated, didn't know women can orgasm? Sounds like you're not talking about reviving but rather creating for the first time. She's super inexperienced so take it slow, and show her how enjoyable sex can be. Encourage her to explore her own body and its responses. I disagree with those who say that it's always going to be like that. It sounds like its to early to conclude that, but if she continues to show no interest in exploring, then there's nothing you can do about it.

To help with the exploring: Get this. (Or maybe a weaker vibe first if this one is to intense for her...)

You have all ready gotten some excellent security suggestions in the thread. My tip is that instead of the big fan for your tinnitus you can try a white sound machine. If it works for you, then you might be able wake up if someone breaks a window.

If you search for “tinnitus” in the customer reviews you will get an idea of how it works for others. I don’t know if this is the best white noise machine but it had over 11,000 reviews so its a good start.

M here but I'm just going to go on my experience of how I have made/how I have seen girls squirt. Are you using just or hand or some type of toy? If just your hand, there are plenty of toys out there that could help you out. From what I've gathered, pressure on the g-spot is essential to making it happen. The best technique I've found is using my middle and index finger about 2 inches in until I feel her G-spot and curl my fingers while attempting an up and down motion with a fair amount of pressure, but not enough to cause pain. I have made some girls squirt, but others not so much. As others have said, I think It's about comfortably and kind of just letting go and letting it happen (easy for me to say, I know lol).

The toy/s I've had most success using with former SO's are G-spot vibratos and or a Hitachi magic wand, sometimes both at the same time. My last SO had never squirted before we had gotten together, not even from herself. Maybe try drinking a glass or two of wine in an attempt to loosen up a bit. Another one of my SO's couldn't squirt, no matter how hard I tried and no matter how hard she tried to let it happen. She would say that it felt like she was squiring/peeing when she would cum but nothing came out, so I'm not too sure what was going on there. Overall, my suggestion would be to try some toys if you already haven't. I would be under the impression that that could help out a bit but then again, I'm a guy so I don't truly understand the struggle :P.

u/GATechAE07 · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Why did no one point out the fact that a protein shake is used to supplement dietary protein? You don't need any particular shake, they're just a convenient way to get additional protein into your diet (especially immediately following training).

That being said... I drink Optimum Nutrition as well; Chocolate Mint is delicious.

u/veni_vidi_vale · 3 pointsr/headphones

yes, pretty much. NRR = what the government-mandated test says, "noise reduction" = what the manufacturer says. Typically audiophilia is filled with bullshit claims, but I do trust the numbers that Shure puts out.

Keep in mind that the amount of isolation of a universal IEM is very dependent on how good a seal you can get. Thats why IEM manufacturers use words like "up to" instead of just specifying a number. The SE215 does come with foam olive tips, which IMO are very decent.

Why not try out a pair of foam earplugs first? They will cost you just a few dollars, and you will get a great sense of whether you want to spring $100 on the 215s or not.

I have used these in the past and they are consistently good - easy to fit into your ears and rated for 32 dB. IMO if this helps, either stick with earplugs or go for some 215s. If you still have issues focusing after trying out the earplugs, maybe take the medical route.

Good luck with your attempts to study, dude!

Not just for marching bands! A very important issue for all musicians. Noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus are no joke.

There are now multiple, affordable options for reusable "musician's earplugs," which block all frequency ranges equally (normal earplugs can leave the music sounding muffled and dull because they block more treble than bass sound).

u/MrSterlock · 3 pointsr/milliondollarextreme

Like another person said, get Flux. Also use Nightshift if you have an iphone. There is an app for androids that does the same thing. You can also get blue light filtering glasses.

Another thing to do is meditate for 5 mins or so before you sleep. You can just lie down and concentrate on your breath, try practicing with the mindful app. This is optional but meditation really has improved my quality of life.

Also, make sure that your room is as dark as possible and that you aren't being bothered by sounds. If I am in a noisy area I always wear earplugs that can be found cheaply on amazon. I use these and they are perfect.

You want your room to be a cave. Think cool, dark, and quiet. Distraction is the enemy and if you have insomnia I'm guessing that your mind wanders a lot. Get more exercise during the day and be more active if you aren't tired by sleepytime.

I don't work in construction, but I'm an engineer, so I have visited a few construction sites. Here, it's law that washrooms (porta potties) be available, in a number that is proportional to the number of employees on site too. Are you part of a union? They have the means to pressure your employer into complying to the regulations.

That being said, if you don't want to rock the boat, I suggest you get one of these https://www.amazon.ca/Go-Girl-Female-Urination-Lavender/dp/B003BEDUS6 at least for peeing. That way, if you learn the art of it, you don't have to take your pants off and bare your ass. For the period issues, can you bring some wet wipes, a plastic bag, and just change pads/tampons inside the cab of your machine? Bring a towel if you want to cover yourself while you do that. Then just put the used sanitary supplies in the bag and throw it out when you get home.

If you want an "affordable" but well-regarded protein shake, I really like Optimum Nutrition. On Amazon it's $55 for 5 lbs.

The reality is protein shakes aren't very sustaining, filling, or cheap, but whey protein absorbs quickly after a workout, which some studies suggest helps to prevent delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS: the achy soreness after a hard workout). If you really need protein, hard-boiled eggs are incredibly convenient, filling, and cheap. Canned tuna is a cheap way to get your protein as well.

I should have been more clear in the original post.

I didn't take any additional potassium supplements as the 150mg from the electrolyte concentrate was enough. I did however take an additional magnesium supplement.

u/iliikepie · 3 pointsr/Dogtraining

I used to have two chihuahua-mixes. One was high-anxiety.

When we also had two cats, the dogs couldn't relax unless they were in a room with the door closed where the cats could not go. The dogs would stay vigilant the entire time the cats were around. The high-anxiety dog would follow the cats around and try to herd them. We had to re-home the cats (due to allergies we weren't aware of before) and the dogs were so much calmer after that. I know you said you tried closing the door, but, maybe he won't feel relaxed unless the cats no longer live there.

Exercise also really helps with their anxiety. I understand this isn't your dog and you are doing your best. Maybe someone else will have a great idea to help in this area.

You could try a thundershirt? It didn't work for my anxious dog but there are lots of success stories.

If noises set him off, you could try a white noise machine. You can even download a white noise machine app on your phone to test it out. The dog could go in a room without cats, and have the white noise turned on.

To me it seems like you may have done everything you can. It sounds as though the dog would need a lot of training and effort to get him to be happier and more well-adjusted, and your roommate isn't willing to do that :(

be CAREFUL about taking any magnesium oxide, its the cheapest form of magnesium and the least absorbable - meaning it's basically a laxative and will give you liquid diarrhea REALLY easy

you really want the stuff that ends with -ATE , doesnt have the side effects



as far as multivitamin, you may want to switch to something with join suporrt like this stuff which is praised highly in the body building community. I take half the daily dose since i'm not an athlete.

try to get some really good fats. make sure you're eating healthy saturated fats like cold pressed coconut oil and then also cold pressed hemp oil (and hemp seeds) and olive oil.

It's easy to miss getting good fats if you're just cooking with a refined oil or light vegetable oil. Fat is one thing that depletes a lot after switching to not eating animal sources, but the health and tissue of your brain rely heavily on good fat consumption through your diet.

Also check your magnesium intake. I'll always recommend hemp seeds because they have a lot of magnesium. But supplements work well too.

u/CaptainHoek · 3 pointsr/mixednuts

Anecdotal, yes.

A friend & colleague of mine struggled with SAD for years. He, by his own testimony, tried everything, including various kinds of light therapy, before it had been more widely talked about. His self-experimentation started with different wavelengths, at different intensities, even exposing different areas of the body, at different times of day, from different angles, for different lengths of time. The guy's a scientist, who takes the function of his mind pretty seriously, so while his experimentation was definitely abnormal, I appreciated his scientific rigor. Ultimately, he found that blue light (I forget the specific wavelength he uses), especially in the upper-half of his vision (ie: shining from above center), for as little as 15 minutes, works spectacularly for bringing him back from the SADness.

Personally, I had never really felt afflicted by SAD, but I figured, what the hell, with all this light equipment around, and given the remarkable success my friend had had with it, why not see what kind of effect it would have on me? I'm prone to getting gloomy, stir-crazy, irritable on gloomy days, so when the next opportunity presented itself, I switched on one of these bad boys for 30 minutes (note: didn't use the ionizer; wasn't sure what it did; only used the light) and proceeded to feel my mood lift substantially. Maybe placebo, but at that point, and on the numerous instances of mood-lifting success, I did not argue with the results.

u/alwayspickingupcrap · 3 pointsr/Nootropics

I found that Time Released Melatonin 1mg is very powerful. Too powerful for me but maybe an option for you?

Also Natural Calm Magnesium Is a particularly sedating form of magnesium in my experience.

The least practical form of magnesiumon a regular basis is a hot epsom salt bath. For me it’s about as sedating as a double dose of benzos.

[edit: Apology: reread your question and realized you’re looking for alternatives to melatonin. Will leave up that first sentence though, since I haven’t seen much discussion about time release melatonin and I was really surprised at how different it felt than 0.5mg quick dissolve melatonin.]

I do too! I sleep with earplugs so I always have a pair, but I started packing it with me when going to the movies because I really, really can't stand the sound of people chewing, bags wrinkling, and them shuffling the popcorn around before grabbing some. But seeing as how eating is a part of the movie going experience for many, it's unavoidable. So I just put the earplugs in and bam! those little noises that distract me and get me irrationally annoyed are no longer audible.

edit: to add more options to the linked earplugs, this is the one I use. You can clip the case onto your keychain to make sure you always have it with you. And since I sleep with it -- and I'm a side sleeper -- I can attest to it being comfortable.

u/whatsinsideit · 3 pointsr/benzodiazepines

yeah being so young doesnt help. benzos are sort of seen as a last resort. they dont just throw them around, well good doctors dont at least.

when you say different pdoc everytime, are you going to the same building/network, or are you actually switching to an entire new office every time? the latter is called drug seeking. even the way you talk to your doctor may come across as drug seeking. you have to realize how many people they deal with everyday that are trying to finesse them for benzos. especially your age

ssris are not just "antidepressants" they are also used for anxiety, as are other classes of meds. there are several classes used for anxiety (like ssris), as well as other classes of meds used "off label" for anxiety. things like trazodone, vistiril, gabapentin, these are commonly used "off-label" for anxiety and sleep.


so what meds have you been prescribed so far? and how long have you been seeing your pdoc for this actual anxiety problem? it sounds like youre seeing both your primary care doctor as well as a pdoc for this. do they communicate to each other? you should be seeing a specialist (pdoc) not primary care

edit - i see on your thread on /r/drugs that youre on probation. what are you on probation for? do your doctors know youre on probation? im not trying to jump to conclusions here but just reading your posts, and how you talk about being jealous of your friends who got benzos thrown at them, it sounds like you just want benzos and nothing else. youre already convinced that "antidepressants" or anything else wont help you and your mind is made up.

the other guy recommending magnesium is actually a decent idea as well. i take 200-300mg of magnesium glycinate every night (and 100mg in the morning). it actually helps a lot to relax and fall asleep. without a doubt the best/most noticeable supplement ive ever taken, honestly. its certainly not a cure all, but it definitely helps. im in my early 30s and have tried almost everything.

i suggest you get some either way: https://www.amazon.com/Doctors-Best-Absorption-Magnesium-Glycinate/dp/B000BD0RT0/ref=sr_1_4_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1521492163&sr=1-4&keywords=magnesium+glycinate&dpID=413m9XIoQtL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

a bonus is that magnesium helps with constipation BIG TIME. i have several digestive "diseases" and constipation is one of the biggest side effects. magnesium fixes that. just dont take too much or you get diarrhea, takes a little trial and error to find the right dose.

u/WadeDRubicon · 3 pointsr/FTMMen

If it's muscle-based pain (like a cramp), then yes, magnesium may help. I take it daily for spasticity/chronic pain, and a big dose when I get a migraine.

Many people find magnesium calming (hence products like Natural Calm) and can help make you sleepier at bedtime. It's also helpful for treating constipation, as it relaxes the muscles of your digestive tract (along with all your other ones).

I've taken this one for about a year.

I'm not a big believer in most supplements, but magnesium has good evidence of effectiveness, relatively low cost, and few (if any) unwanted side effects. If you want to try it, you'll know within a day or two if it's helping. Heck, if nothing else, it may help ease the tension of living in pain.

  • [Floradix (iron supplement)] (http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/p/flora-floradix-iron-herbs-8-5-fl-oz/fl-1007#.VG2cxL5GjzI) This has helped me with fatigue, I don't take it everyday though.
  • [Natural Calm (magnesium supplement)] (http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Calm-Raspberry-Lemon/dp/B00BPUY3W0) I love this product and I've been using it for the past two years. I take it at night before bed. It helps with various stomach issues and it helps you sleep! It tastes pretty good too. Be careful with dosing, it has a hell of a laxative effect.
  • No alcohol. Even in small amounts I will hurt all over the next day.
  • I swear by baths. I don't do bubble baths often because of the UTI risk, instead I use essential oils. I really like Geranium oil, it's supposed to help your circulatory and nervous systems.
  • Heating pads. I always have one in bed and take one with me when I travel.
  • Drinking coffee has helped me.
  • Swapping some of the grains in my diet for leafy greens. I don't know why, but I saw my energy level improve.
  • Replacing my snacks with apples and peanut butter or baby carrots and hummus
  • Sauerkraut. Maybe because of the probiotics in it?

Simple and easy way to get more protein into your diet. When looking at the nutrition label, if it says "Nutrition facts" the contents have been verified by a relatively strict process. if it says "Supplement facts" the actual content is allowed to vary a lot from what's listed on the label.

If you're looking for a meal replacement, I've found that Muscle Milk brand powder works well. If you're just wanting a protein supplement, I really like the flavours of Optimum Nutrition and they're relatively low carb. If you're trying to lean more towards the vegetarian side of things, Garden of Life is an excellent option as well. Although I personally think the texture is pretty "gritty" the flavours aren't bad.

Regardless of what you choose, if you do some price comparison among top brands, you'll find it to be a fairly good deal in price/calorie compared to pre-packaged foods. Almost all of the powders are going to be a healthy option for adding to your diet. For myself, I've found protein shakes to be the best small meal replacement for when I'm trying to cut weight, and a great source for extra calories to add between each meal if I'm trying to bulk up.

Uh I'm so sorry to hear this. You definitely have a nuisance neighbor and that's so anxiety inducing on top of a chronic illness. I also have a chronic illness and work incall from home.

Have you thought about ways you can limit or muffle the noise? Do you have a carpet or can you put down an area rug? If you don't want a rug, maybe you can wear flip flops or slippers at home to help dull the noise? Do you ask clients to take their shoes off at the door?

I have a white noise sound machine that I use for sleep but a lot of psychologists use them to muffle noise in their office so people can't hear their patients. I have the professional one they use: https://www.amazon.com/Marpac-Classic-White-Noise-Machine/dp/B00HD0ELFK/ref=sr_1_7?crid=2IN38LJZ07OLK&keywords=white%2Bnoise%2Bmachine&qid=1566443701&s=gateway&sprefix=white%2Bnoise%2Caps%2C206&sr=8-7&th=1

It's pricer then the others but it's worth the $$.

I had a problem with my headboard & bed frame after 6 months of working. It was banging on the wall and creaking loudly during activity, it's a freakin miracle my neighbor next to me didn't' complain! It was a single guy so maybe he was happy to listen 😂. I ended up investing in a new bed frame when their was a memorial day sale and I'm pretty happy with my purchase. It's pretty and super quiet now.

I do a protein shake after climbing (I use this one) mixed with almond milk and occasionally have another one with lunch as well.

I just started taking Creatine HCL yesterday after researching a lot about it. I mix it with BCAA's since HCL form is very sour, but the popular mono- creatine I've heard a lot of people mix with a protein shake after working out. No calories between the two - I use Scivation Xtend Pink Lemonade for the BCAA and Beyond Raw for the creatine.

I am trying out a caffienated BCAA from Gnarly Nutrition for my pre-workout drink. I've used other true preworkouts, and I hate the jitters and sweat that comes with it. I've always taken BCAA's before and do notice less muscle soreness and better recovery, so my hope is the caffeine combined with it will give me the little boost I need.

Black coffee is another good preworkout with no calories to give the energy boost you might be looking for, but if you're not very sensitive to caffeine one of the others that has other stimulants might be a better fit I suppose.

u/Haber_Dasher · 3 pointsr/GetMotivated

It didn't even occur to me you could get it as a powder. I guess that's fine, pills are just powder compressed, and what's important is that the magnesium molecules are bound to something that keeps them from getting destroyed in your stomach, not whether it's a pill/capsule/powder. I'm not sure what you linked is a good choice (it doesn't mention that it's chelated or any amino acids it might be Chelated to), the magnesium I take is this one. Based on what I know that's gonna have about as good absorbtion as you're gonna get and it's much cheaper. Those 240 pills last me a long time. It's 100% chelated with glycine and lycine.

I take 600 mg of the oral mag per day and put the lotion on all over my body each night. I do this whether I'm fasting or not. I take boron, taurine and selenium to boost absorption of the mag. So far, it's working WONDERFULLY! Boron, btw, really helps w/vitamin D absorption too, which everyone these days seem to be low on.

So I know a lot about this. I've been dealing with acid reflux at night for 10+ years and I have a pretty good handle on it. So first of all, if you can sleep on your back, it's the best position for acid reflux and noticing palpitations. What works for me also is to create a wedge incline with several pillows so that my head is elevated above my stomach. I also drink Calm mixed with Benefiber and that helps to aid with digestion, especially heavy meals (I sometimes drink Kefir as well). What I've noticed over the years is that once my stomach empties, maybe 3-5 hours after eating, I can usually sleep however I want, but sometimes you just eat really late and it can't be helped (maybe eat a lighter meal is this instance). So basically, try not to lay down or at least sit upright until it's time for bed. The last advice is to try and avoid foods that you know bother your stomach, for instance, I know that I can eat Whole Wheat Bread, because I get horrible heartburn and reflux. Good luck.

You don't need to drink a gallon of milk a day, you need to eat above your daily caloric maintenance. That can be achieved with a gallon of milk, or it can be achieved with a bunch of other stuff.

A protein shake is recommended if you feel that you're having trouble getting 1g/lb of protein (that is, X lbs of lean weight = X grams of protein a day).

The type of protein powder doesn't really matter, as long as it's some decent tasting whey protein. A good brand is Optimum Nutrition: http://www.amazon.com/Optimum-Nutrition-Standard-Double-Chocolate/dp/B000QSNYGI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331509088&sr=8-1

If you drink just one cup of milk a day, you might not be getting as many calories you need.

It is possible to get strong without bulking, but it helps if you're bulking. If you're starting SS, you can make some good gains without bulking, but down the road you might stall.

Hope this helps (:

u/kewidogg · 3 pointsr/reddit.com

BF is what percentage of your body (as an estimate) is made of as fat as opposed to muscle, etc. Muscle is more dense, so for people that lift weight BMI doesn't work (for example, probably ALL NFL athletes are "overweight" to "obese" including wide receivers, quarterbacks, etc according to BMI scale because they "weigh" a lot, however most of that is muscle).

160 is probably the "proper" weight (according to BMI) for someone 5'11" that may not have as much muscle on their body, but is in no way even close to overweight.

There are a couple ways to get the most accurate measurement for BF%: Link

It's kind of an inexact science to detect body fat composition because SO MANY factors change it (your hydration level, heart rate [I think], food in your stomach, and so on) that quick and easy ways don't always work well (calipers test I'm told is pretty inaccurate).

I got my estimate from this thing from Amazon, which got favorable reviews: Link

It is however an estimate, so you can't just use something like that and go "well, there you go, that's for sure my BF%"

I guess I can try asking a question here rather than starting a new thread for something related.

I bought this machine for checking body fat and I'm not so sure on some things. If I set it to athletic mode (I'm just starting SL but I was running and doing 1.5 hours on cable machines previously) it tells me my body fat is somewhere around 15.5%, if I set it on normal it tells me about 17.5%

Last Body Fat Friday I was estimated at 20%, and I'm pretty damned sure I'm not close to 15, 20% from all comparative pictures seems about right. Anyone know anything about this machine to know what setting to use?

u/MacManG5 · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

Great thinking! I'll give you my experience with the ones I've used.

First I bought this set from Etymotic for myself and my Croo years ago. For the price they're great and served me quite well at local shows and Roo alike until I lost them at Roo in 2016 (luckily I always carry disposable ones too in case anyone around me in the crowd wants a pair so I wasn't deaf by the end of that Roo). I liked them for the price and the carrying case however they did have some issues like their odd fit for some folks.

After losing the Etymotic's at Roo in 2016 I bought this set from Eargasm pretty much as soon as I got home. They're a bit pricier than the Etymotic's but well worth the price in my opinion. They come with a large and small in ear insert in order to ensure a good fit for most and instead of using a tube and dampening materials like the Etymotic's the Eargasm's actually have a tiny filter that makes for much more even tones/sounds. They also come with a much better carrying case and have yet to have an issue with them in the ~2.5 years I've had them.

Side note about the Eargasm's, their carrying case is a tiny metal canister that comes equipped with a keychain and I take them to every show I go to, I mention this because the canister does look like something you'd house party favors in so the security may have you open the canister up so they can inspect it. I've also found the canister sets off metal detectors so if you do attempt to get through using it as a party favor holder it may come back to bite you. Just figured I'd give you a heads up there since I've gotten many strange looks from security and fellow show goers alike until I open them up and pop the plugs in.


Hopefully this helps! If you've got any questions about either set let me know!

u/t9rice · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Everyone stores fat in different places, that's why skin fold calipers assess and take the average from a few different places. If you want another reading, I suggest also using another means of measuring your body fat %, such as a Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis device, or BIA for short. I personally use this one. Just make sure you use this first thing in the morning so any water intake doesn't mess with the measurement. I use both BIA and skin folds to check the validity of the other.

Anyway, you look to be at about 8-10% body fat, unless you carry a lot of fat in your thighs.

I always feel the need to mention that protein powders are cheaper than people think. They see the $50 price tag on the tub you just mentioned but neglect to do the math. Protein is generally the most expensive of the macronutrients (carbs and fats are cheap). Even considering that, you're getting 74 servings of 120 calories worth of protein for ~$50 (I just bought two tubs at $43 each earlier today from Vitamin Shoppe). That's $0.56 per 100 calories of mostly protein. That per calorie cost compares favorably to anything, even fast food prices (and again, protein is generally the most expensive macro to get).

At 6'2 145, you aren't, and likely have never, been eating enough. Download MyFitnessPal, and track your calories. Don't estimate stuff, put it in a measuring cup or on a food scale. If I were you I would aim for 3000 calories a day to get started at least. It'll probably be tough for you to get there. If you're not gaining weight over the next couple weeks doing that every day, you're counting the calories wrong (fast and slow metabolisms are a lie).

A lot of people are saying there's no need for protein or creatine when you're just starting lifting. The first and most important thing is to eat more. If you don't eat more you won't get bigger. Once you start eating enough though, I would add protein and creatine on top of that. When you couple them with the newbie gains, in my experience, it's pretty noticeable.

You didn't mention lifting in your post, but my response is assuming that you are going to lift. If you don't, you'll only gain fat. Pick a good routine from the r/Fitness wiki, I really enjoy the PPL on there.

To sum things up:

  1. most importantly, eat way more every day and lift consistently.
  2. once #1 is happening, start taking one scoop of whey protein after workouts, and one teaspoon of micronized creatine monohydrate once a day every day (even on days you aren't working out)

It's similar with noise. You want a rich, wide spectrum of noise.

Barring that, there are phone apps you might try such as White Noise Lite, Relax Melodies, and Chroma Doze. Relax Melodies is pretty neat, as it lets you create custom noise by layering in different sounds. These apps are on Google Play, dunno about iTunes.

Magnesium Threonate theoretically crosses the blood-brain barrier easier. I personally find it to be less sedating or calming than the Magnesium Citrate I take at night. It is pricier, but the research so far shows promising results. Also, my doc recommended it!

According to this study from the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease: "In an intact rodent, treatment with conventional magnesium salts is ineffective at elevating brain magnesium and improving memory function. This is because active transport systems tightly control the amount of magnesium that crosses first from digestive tract into blood, and then from blood to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). In human, increasing blood magnesium by up to 300% only changes CSF magnesium by less than 19%. To overcome this problem, we developed L-Threonic acid Magnesium salt (L-TAMS, formerly MgT), a compound that can effectively enhance CSF magnesium concentration via oral intake."

Also from the same study: "Supplementation with magnesium threonate may improve cognitive function in older individuals with memory and concentration issues, say results of a randomized, controlled, double-blind study."

Another white noise fan. This is what I use. I like the sound of air moving better electronic white noise.

Melatonin helps me drift off. It doesn't make me sleepy, but if I'm already a little tired, my thoughts become more like dreams than thoughts, and I stop reacting to sounds or ideas. Isn't enough if I'm wired or wound up.

I also take mitrazipine now, which is similar to trazadone. They are antidepressants that are also commonly used to treat anxiety and insomnia, among other things. I take a tiny dose, specifically to help me sleep. Taking it doesn't change the rest of my medication plan, it's just a little bump. Docs commonly give trazadone to old folks who can't sleep due to evening anxiety - it's that harmless (compared to other sleep and anxiety drugs). My 93 year old grandmother who was medically frail was taking it!

I don't do this, but I diaphragmatic breathing is very helpful for bringing down the anxiety and can help get you out of your head. So peaceful. Plenty of tutorials online.

u/Mister_Loaf · 3 pointsr/Cooking

As nice as cast iron is, if you ever want to make any kind of pan sauce after you've cooked your protein that might involve wine or vinegar or lemon juice, you'd be out of luck. I'd go with a good, heavy traditional-finish skillet with some sort of clad construction for optimal even heating across the surface. As far as that sticking issue goes, you don't have to use as much oil as long as your skillet is already heated before you put any food in it. In some cases (not all), meat in a traditional finish skillet will stick at first but release from the surface right around the time it's supposed to be flipped or turned, which is perfectly normal anyway.

One of the other perks of a traditional finish skillet is fond -- a.k.a., the stuck-on brown bits left in the pan after you've cooked your food. All those brown (not blackened, that's too far) bits = flavorful awesomeness, and are key in making a good pan sauce to go with whatever you're making. Deglaze the pan with a bit of broth or wine or whatever and scrape up the brown bits with a wooden spoon, throw some butter and herbs in there, baby, you got a sauce goin'. (Plus, this makes cleaning the pan later a lot easier, since you're using what would otherwise be "mess" to your advantage.")

Problem is, good-quality stainless steel skillets are expensive, and the drop-off in price represents a really steep drop-off in quality, which would of course give you worse results in cooking and make you less likely to want to use one anyway. One thing to watch out for is skillets with disk bottoms, where the only place the manufacturers put the highly conductive aluminum core which appears in most stainless steel cookware in a disk on the bottom of the skillet. These are the cheapest options, but the problem is the sides of the pan don't heat up as evenly or as well as the bottom, which results in uneven cooking if you're using the entire surface of the pan. Better to go with a "clad" pan -- one in which the entire skillet is made out of a layer of aluminum sandwiched between stainless steel. Better conduction, more even heating, better performance, better food. Yes, clad skillets are more expensive (~$110 versus ~$50 for a disk bottom), but 1) Cooking.com, etc. run sales on these things all the time, and 2) as long as you take good care care of them (Bar Keeper's Friend works wonders for me), there's no reason why they shouldn't last a lifetime -- definitely worth the investment.

It's fine to just stick to creatine monohydrate; it's cheap and readily available anywhere. Brand is irrelevant, although I personally get mine from Optimum Nutrition (600g for $20 on Amazon, which is about 4 month's worth). There are other forms of creatine, but they haven't been shown to be as reliable or effective for everyone, last time that I checked.

u/FUCKAFISH · 3 pointsr/drumcorps

Whatever you do, don't do steroids. One of my friends knew a guy on a snare line that wanted to keep his bulk throughout the season so he took anabolic steroids. They were on a water break and the guy laid down for a short rest. Next thing they knew, he had gone through cardiac arrest and slipped into unconsciousness. I know you probably would never consider this but just know that it'll fuck you up.

I recommend just eating a ton. Even when you feel full during a meal, stuff down one serving more of chicken or vegetables. Oats, cottage cheese, and yogurt are god-tier protein snacks. Peanut butter will give you a lot of gas and so will beef jerky but both are good as far as broteins.

O.o OK first off, I thought I was thin when I was younger. Freshman Year of High-School I was 5'3-4, weighing in at 90 lbs appx. 4 years later and I am 5'11, weighing in at 165 (also due to the help eating properly/pushing myself during workouts/bodybuilding.

Unfortunately if you want to put on some bulk, you will need to eat more now then ever. And if you think you are eating enough at this moment, you are wrong.

Food that you will need to incorporate are:

  • Chicken, Pork, Beef, Turkey
  • Eggs/Egg Whites
  • Steel Cut Oats (Not Oatmeal as that has no nutritional value in it)
  • Veggies...
  • Some fruits, not all since most contain a decent amount of sugar, but with your frame/weight I doubt a little bit of sugar would hurt
  • If you can afford it, protein shakes (Optimal is ON or Cytosport 100% Whey Protein Powder at Costco if nearby)
  • Creatine Monohydrate
  • Pre-workout (Not neccesary but can be provided useful)

    Edit:

  • Recommended Creatine: Optimum Nutrition Micronized Creatine Powder (2000g) from Amazon.

  • Recommended Pre-Workout: C4 60 Serving of Pineapple and Pink Lemonade (My favorite flavors) from Amazon.


    You will need a routine, but you should workout Mon-Fri. My order starting from Mon is Back, then Chest, Legs, Bi/Tris and end with shoulders/traps. Starting Monday and cycling on and off, you should do Abs, Calves, Abs, Calves, Abs. Weekends are rest days.

    Repeat

    Last and just as important, proper sleep. I do not know if you are a early bird or a night owl, but if you are a night owl, BOOM, stop what you are doing and start going to bed early. If you don't rest at a proper time, and for a proper amount, it will severely restrict any kinda of Gains you get in the gym, as known hopefully by most, you don't gain muscle in the gym, you gain muscle when you rest.

    Hope this helps.

    Unfortunately, this is going to cost a decent amount of money/and/or communication with your parents about purchasing said meals and having a gym membership, as I doubt you have anyone nearby that has an at home gym like I do. It's not uber common.

    Always remember, Gains are consistent of Rest, Food, and Working Out. If one is out of balance, it screws with the entire order of how quickly you make progress in the gym.

Oh, my bad. Guess I just assumed you were coming from the other direction. I was way underweight for most of my life until my early 20's, so I feel your pain.

I don't know enough to give diet advice, but here's my normal schedule (working 7p-7a):

8p: Chipotle bowl, double chicken and all the rice and pinto beans they'll give me. Sour cream, guac, and cheese.

3a: 1lb cottage cheese. It's not my favorite, but it's hard to argue with the nutrition facts and it keeps me full so I'm not snacking on break room cookies, cake, pizza, all that crap. I also usually have a couple of sugar free snack pack jello cups (10 calories and not much else) to stave off boredom eating.

7a: Pre-workout and lift. I use ANS Ritual, but there are plenty of other options.

~9:30a: 1-1.5 scoops protein powder immediately after workout. I used Optimum Nutrition Gold for most of this, but recently switched to Dymatize ISO 100. Though a weight gainer might be a better option for you (and taste like you're drinking a cake.)

Then rinse and repeat. First 4 days of my week are pretty much that. I relax a bit on the other days and eat more, but that basically keeps me where I am now. There's also /r/gainit, if you haven't checked them out already.

I recommend Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Isolate, its definitely good for the price. On Amazon a 5lb tub is around 55 dollars. Extreme Milk Chocolate is by far the best flavor. You can usually never go wrong with chocolate flavors. Isolate is the way to go, its usually plentiful in protein, while being low on carbs. You'll want to get your carbs from a whole source.

Meal replacements need your macros: Protein, Carbs and Fats. So, some Whey, Oats, and Whole milk, blend. Done. If your calorie conscious, Whey, half oats (or skip the oats for low-carb), fat free milk (or half whole milk, half water), done.

Casual meal replacement use one scoop whey. Post workout, use two scoops. Be prepared though, Whey Protein can add up over time and get pretty expensive. You may go through the whole 5lb tub in a month.

From personal experience, it can be strange to take control of our own sexuality. Women are often raised with the message that we are here to please men first, and to put our own pleasure second. It’s not a conscious decision, it’s a compulsion we have to work out of ourselves. That’s what she’s doing when she refers to you. But owning our own pleasure and bringing our own desire to our partner makes it better for everyone. She’s lucky to have a partner who’s willing to help her instead of taking advantage of her inexperience.

Bonus round. If you’re open to using toys look into getting an external vibrator like this. There are other kinds that are less expensive, I have this one but I put a towel between me and it because it’s not waterproof. You want something that will give her intense clitoral stimulation. Some guys falsely think that using a toy is cheating or that the toy is a substitute, but it’s not. If you are using it on her, it’s you who are giving her the orgasm. It can help her become more used to cuming and losing control in that way in front of you. You can finger her while using it on her too (highly recommend). Anything that helps her express her sexuality is a good thing. And you can do it together which is awesome

Yo boss, switch up the type of magnesium you are taking and get some vitamin K2 to go with and it will absorb better. I take 800mg of magnesium a day now and don't have issues with the right stuff.

There's a powdered magnesium drink I sometimes use here in the USA called "Natural Calm".

You probably know this, but you should avoid all screens in the last few hours before you go to bed. The blue light jacks up your brains sense of day/night.

I'll add to this reply with saying you should isolate a problolmatic cartridge, open it up, clean the contacts with 99% alcohol and a cotton swab. If the contacts aren't shiny then I take a little Bar Keepers Friend, dab a paper towel with it and scrub over the same area. This picks up any residue preventing a proper connection to the contact pins. In my experience my pins have always been good but the cartridges contacts had a residue on them that was nearly impossible to clean off without Bar Keepers Friend.

Sure you can say it's one more thing to carry, but it's a tiny item and goes to show that women could very well stay in the vehicle and 'pee like a man.'

If they have the 'female urination device', right there.

I've been using this handheld, but should pick up a set of calipers and start taking better measurements. I just figured if I used the handheld at the same time of day, it would always be off a percentage or two (does that make sense? it sounds better in my head, lol)

u/cwf82 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

That gives me the heebie jeebies!

Hmmm...I would say maybe my miracle berry tablets (make your taste buds go all wonky), my game jerky (whatcha think of kangaroo, alligator, and wild boar jerky?), cricket bars (nuff said...), a horse head would be on the weird/creepy side.

Favorite stuff would be hard to say. Language stuff, ebooks, any of the CAH (unofficial) expansions (Crabs adjust humidity, etc.), Star Wars clothes n stuff, movies... I don't really have favorite items, because I love many different things.

[Dohm Sound Machine](Marpac Dohm-DS All-Natural White Noise Sound Machine, Tan https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000KUHFGM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_JaVFyb8ZMVFDA)

I have always had similar issues with being a light sleeper. The Dohm Sleep Machine really is a must have if you have this problem. It's got incredible reviews because it really is perfect.

u/JoelinVan · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I would suggest a white noise machine like this instead. Better than sleeping with earplugs all the time. I live in a condo and it works perfectly.

u/Misslaceylove · 2 pointsr/sexover30

We have a white noise machine in our rooms and our kids. It helps and is a cheaper alternative. I'm loud, so it doesn't completely silence things, but it's good

I really love stand alone white noise generators. I used to live in the middle of the bar district in downtown Austin, and picked this up. Also available as a cheaper single speed here - the single speed is the higher speed on the dual according to reviews.

It's some of the best money I've ever spent on sleep.

It can be ungodly loud, but you can prevent damage. Wear ear plugs. Problem solved. Tinnitus fucking sucks, trust me. There is no such thing as silence for me any more. Go on Amazon and buy these: https://www.amazon.com/Eargasm-Musicians-Motorcycles-Sensitivity-Conditions/dp/B019M576XW or these: https://www.amazon.com/Etymotic-ETY-Plugs-Fidelity-Earplugs-Standard/dp/B0015WJQ7A/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=etymotic&qid=1562803313&s=hpc&sr=1-1 Personally I like the Eargasm ones better. I wear them to every concert I attend. I'm usually right at the front or running around in the pit. I never have any additional hearing discomfort afterwards. Spend a few bucks and prevent a lifetime of asking people to repeat themselves...

I thought you were gonna post a link of this:

(Also an amazon page, but you probably don't wanna view it in public)

Prolabs Caffeine pills (https://www.amazon.com/ProLab-Caffeine-Maximum-Potency-100-Count/dp/B0011865IQ) I would do two a day until you control the caffeine addiction. Half a tablet every two hours starting whenever you normally have your first Coke Zero (or one full 3-4 hours apart). I used to drink Rockstar Ice Zeros and Coke Zero like water and switched to caffeine pills instead. Night and day change. I used to get grogy and headaches and didn't realize the drinks were causing them. If you're still craving the fizz, try switching to club soda. It also helps get some sodium in you. Best of luck.


Edit: if you're looking to cut body fat you may also want to consider doing an ECA stack. Google it.

u/ihaveacrushonmercy · 2 pointsr/Supplements

I have to respectfully disagree with the notion that one cannot "feel" magnesium. I believe that magnesium can very much create a tangible feeling of calmness, or reduction of anxiety for those prone to it. Reading the various reports of those who take it for those reasons can confirm this. In fact, one of the most popular magnesium products advertises it's feeling of calm and relaxation. Now obviously this isn't going to be along the same lines as marijuana or something, but it does induce a very noticeable feeling.

As for the reason I took double the amount of the RDV is because magnesium oxide is known to be the least efficiently absorbed forms of magnesium. Edit: After researching, magnesium oxide only has %4 bioavailability.

u/appothecary · 2 pointsr/earrumblersassemble

I only take it daily because I'm on the keto diet and it's one of the electrolytes that can become low in your body super quick. For a trip I'd take something like the powder you probably only need to dose an hour or so before.

Here's the link for the one I've used in the past.

Your body produces melatonin to help you sleep. It produces it based on what time of the day it thinks it is which is affected by exposure to sunlight. By exposing yourself to light in the evening it prevents your body from producing it too early in the day and then running out of it in the middle of the night.

If your problem is that you can't fall asleep at your usual bedtime then you'd want to do the opposite and expose yourself to sunlight (or artificial light) as soon as you wake up or at least in the earlier part of the day. This could help synchronize your melatonin production to your sleep patterns. Like this guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yze6_qZZrsI

This is the lamp I use but there are many more available out there. https://www.amazon.com/NatureBright-SunTouch-Light-Therapy-package/dp/B000W8Y7FY/ref=sr_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1485565701&sr=8-2&keywords=light+therapy

Good luck.

Bought this: http://www.amazon.com/Body-Fortress-Advanced-Protein-Cookies/dp/B002HHREU8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1406050488&sr=8-3&keywords=protein+powder

Took one sip (mix with water: i'm on a cut), almost threw up. Threw the entire jug out.

I use: http://www.amazon.com/Optimum-Nutrition-Standard-Double-Chocolate/dp/B000QSNYGI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1406050518&sr=8-1&keywords=protein+powder

I take two scoops daily with water and love it. Super tasty and great protein. Slightly more expensive than the first brand but clearly worth it.

Hey bro sorry for the long wait on the reply.

Here's the short and sweet on supplements:

Whey: Whey Protein is a type of protein extracted from milk. There's whey, whey isolate and hydrolized whey. It literally does not make a fuck which one you get. Drink whey shakes to hit your protein macros (100+g a day according to IIFYM which I told you about. This is what I use. It's really popular. You don't have to buy a jug this big if you don't want.

Fish Oil: This is an Omega-3 Fatty Acid. Older people take it because it promoted heart health. Lifters take it for the same reason but it also helps promote lean mass gain. You can get this from your regular diet but you probably won't unless you eat a fuckton of Fish. You can find bottles of it in the Vitamin section of any store.

Multivitamin: This is all the shit you don't pay attention to on nutrition labels. Calcium, Iron, Vitamin A, B C D E K, Zinc etc. You can get all the vitamins from your diet if your diet is super super clean but I most people don't eat perfectly. Hell, I eat out with coworkers sometimes. Also find this in the vitamin section of your grocery store. 120 tablets of Centrum multivitamin for men is like 10 bucks.

Zinc: Zinc raises testosterone. Period. If you have low sex drive or any reason to think your T is low, buy extra Zinc and take it with your multivitamin.

Creatine: Your muscles have three energy sources: Carbs, Glycogen, Fat. Lifting burns through Carbs and Glycogen really fast and using Fat as an energy source to lift is really inefficient. However Creatine also gets stored in your muscles and can be used as another energy source, increasing your lifts. If you start taking creatine you will have noticeable strength gains within 10 days.

Gear: Don't take gear. Unless you're willing to sacrifice your health to get huge fast.

Source: I was a 5'11 210lb chubster. I cut down to ~160 then bulked alllll the way back to ~182 where I am now. It's a long, long process but you will get there and it is so, so worth it.

Hey there, I'm a 25M personal trainer with CF, have been using protein supplements for about 8 years from age 17 to 25. In that time I've gone from ~105 to 160 and back down to 140, leaner than I started. Just get some basic whey protein like this.

If you want to gain muscle mass, you need to eat enough, it's just as important as exercise. If you want some tips for how I've managed to do so, I made a comment a while back on this sub here.

Good luck! feel free to message me if you have any questions

> Felt like revenge for being born during my second birthday tbh.

That'll teach him!

Also, check out miracle berry on Amazon.

We tried lemon juice, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa - and we were drinking Devil's Springs (180 proof) vodka. Everything tasted amazing. Especially the salsa. The effect lasted probably an hour or so.
