There’s not evidence you should go on the Keto diet

It’s not optimal. It works, but it’s inferior to a regular more balanced diet at equivalent caloric restriction, and even inferior when compared to other low-carb diets. Here’s some sources for the keto fanboys who are gonna jump on me for this:[1]

Ketogenic Low-Carbohydrate (KLC) and Non Ketogenic Low-Carbohydrate diets were equally effective in reducing body weight and insulin resistance, but the KLC diet was associated with several adverse metabolic and emotional effects. The use of ketogenic diets for weight loss is not warranted.[2]

Body-weight loss and weight-maintenance depends on the high-protein, but not on the ‘low-carb’ component of the diet, while it is unrelated to the concomitant fat-content of the diet.[3]

Under planned isoenergetic conditions, as expected, both dietary patterns (Low Carb vs Low Fat) resulted in similar weight loss and changes in body composition. The LC diet may offer clinical benefits to obese persons with insulin resistance. However, the increase in LDL cholesterol with the LC diet suggests that this measure should be monitored.

On agile

epics are really just projects
stories are really just use cases
sprints are really just work
stand-ups are really just meetings
iterations are really just versions
backlogs are really just to do lists
backlog grooming is really just planning
burn-down charts are really just earned value charts
velocity is really just output
and that tasks, in fact, are really just tasks

Agile is mostly the existing best practices with fancy buzzwords attached

On the bright side my hotel has a hot tub

Stopped at my old college hookah bar tonight

In two hours ran into 3 people my ex slept with. It was a night of awkward small talk.
