Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

I'm sorry @Brute but I just can't agree that work and stress can 'render what an individual eats completely irrelevant'.

I'm sure the mice in the caloric restriction studies were pretty damn stressed.

What about people in prison camps?

Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

@c40 and that got you down to 5% bodyfat? Any fasting? How was meal frequency? Typical day of eating?

Do you still follow the warrior diet way? What does an average day look like for you?

Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

Thanks Brute. I think you're very close to being exactly right, but please let me challenge a few things: - why is fasting difficult with work? Surely it's easier to not eat. What do you do for a living, if you don't mind me asking? - why haven't you had your bloods checked and how could you assume ...

Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

@BRUTE I too have experimented with keto and fasting to great effect. I never seem to make it past the first 1-2 weeks, however, and always gain it back! Some questions, if you don't mind? 1. How did you deal with cravings during the initial phase? 2. How does your weekly / daily diet set up look in...

Re: Mini retirement then back to work...how to invest?

@liberal, I like that approach. But hard to accept that my bucket for my 7y period would just be consumed. I suppose the remaining c75% of my portfolio would be exposed to high return equities however

Re: Mini retirement then back to work...how to invest?

@George Very true. The smart money would probably be expecting inflation coming soon. So I suppose we would also look to something like gold as an inflation hedge. So, with Jacobs barbell we are looking at long term bonds, short term bonds, gold...sounds familiar! My initial thought actually was jus...

Re: Mini retirement then back to work...how to invest?

@thrify yes that's what I mean. is the inflation risk that big over 7y and then back in equities again.

@jacob assuming what I said above is what you meant (for the bullet scenario at least)...how about for next 4-5y while accumulating?

Re: Mini retirement then back to work...how to invest?

@jacob Very interesting, thanks. I suppose you mean to do this right when I start school? Say 7 year bonds starting in 2022. So take my full allocation of 'F you' money and 'guarantee' 3-5% yield + return of full capital upon maturity (minus effects of inflation)? Then invest as normal? I work in M&...

Re: Mini retirement then back to work...how to invest?

There's also the issue of the next 3-5y. A big dip could delay my FIRE significantly. You recommend starting full equities and gradually shifting to a bond tent over the next 4-5y, or should I start now with 25-40% bonds in preparation?

Re: Mini retirement then back to work...how to invest?

@george

Thanks, makes sense. I'm guessing you mean short term bonds? And that would be money I'd never get back?

Mini retirement then back to work...how to invest?

Hello all I have slowly been surely educating myself in the ways of sensible investing, and have a somewhat unique situation that I was hoping to hear your opinion on. I am 32yo and c.4-5y away from having my F-you money. After I reach this point I want to go back to school to train for a more rewar...

Re: Portfolio Charts

Sorry, not intraday. The current portfolio charts setup is inadequate and misleading. It shows historic returns for ONLY Dec 31 - Dec 31 periods, essentially n=1. The returns and losses (and comparative returns an losses) would be totally different looking at Jan 10 - Jan 10 for example, and likely ...

Re: Portfolio Charts

@Tyler

Leveraged or not, the max drawdown figured you have stated are wrong and misleading. A portfolio with a better worst year (December to December) performance may have a much worse max DD. Please clarify this on your site.

Re: Portfolio Charts

I am little disappointed with the calculators, particularly with regard to what is erroneously called 'deepest drawdown'. This is actually just the greatest year on year loss, looking ONLY at calendar year and not all of the possible annual periods. The actual max drawdown since 2002 is around 30%. ...

Best Online Freelance Work?

Hi all,

I'm curious to hear your opinions on the best online freelance work? Something with high demand, low supply, good pay, and that would take 50-100 hours to learn to a "professional" standard.

Any suggestions welcome!

Re: Go to Med School or Work 5 More Years for FI?

Good ideas guys, thanks. There are certainly teams at work who cover more healthcare related companies. I will look into it!
