Sleeping Low - Errr...

Guessing you know what this post is about just from this awesome gif of Action Bronson heheh. In short when it comes to sports nutrition, there seems to be as much bullshit in this field as there is in the field of wine. Lots of experts and really smart people claim to know a lot about what is best for the athlete, when to take what, when to eat, when to shit, when to sleep, etc. The simple fact of the matter is a) there is no accounting for taste and b) who the hell wants to live like a monk for __ months on end?

For those who know what I have been through, the thousands of dollars in medical bills, super discouraging phone calls with doctors / urologists / etc, this is a HUGE first step towards my recovery. I think it goes well with it being the first day of 2018 that my resolutions are tw
