    Hey tax doucheeeees


    I made $1950 last year from a company that claimed me to be an outsourced employee or whatever, they didn't collect tax on it but sent me a letter saying blah blah blah you have to claim taxes on this as we file these payments as expenses and something or other.

    how should i go about filing this $#@! with the rest of my taxable income in reality (or should I even)?

    and they dont need to have the 1099s mailed out until the 31st so give it a week or so after that, if you use turbo tax its just under other common income

    If they didn't send you a 1099 then they didnt send on to the irs (however, they may still be sending it).

    Basically, no 1099 - irs doesn't know unless they audit them.

    Legally, you should still claim. However....

    Itís more than calorie in, calorie out. You have to understand that, on whole, your body is either in a burn fat for energy state or store fat state. You want to do things that keep you in the burn fat state as long as possible. Exercise is only about 30% of that equation.

    Things that keep you in the burn fat stage are small meals during the entire day, eating things that donít spike your blood sugar, eating things that slowly provide energy into your system and limiting pure fat into you system. Generally, every successful diet is based on this concept. I think it is one concept that isnít properly communicated to dieters. Once you understand that and can build that correlation, you will better understand why your plan will or wont work.

    Exercise is generally misunderstood. Seth, for you, going for a run is purely a burn X calories in a 45 mins period. Your body is trained for it, your muscle can do it without much stress, so your limited to a caloric burn by just that amount during the run. If you do a fully body work out thatís new to you every time, it stresses every major muscle group. This does more damage to the muscles requiring not only that caloric drain, but the 48-72 hours of slow repair that burns a steady calories/hour.

    Combine that with a steady normal 2,000 calorie diet spread out over the day and bumped up by those good workouts, you see vastly better gains than just doing the ďI ate 2k calories in 3 squares and burned 2300 calories, so I will loses a lb a weekĒ when you really wont. This is because you might have only spent 4-6 hours in a state of burn fat and the rest in store fat. Where spreading it out correctly, you can be in a burn fat state more than the storing state. Which is the ultimate goal.

    I disagree with that on trainers because I once thought the same thing. I have always been motivated enough to work out regularly, keep my same waist line since I was 18 giver or take periods where I was lazy and took a break for a couple months. Trainers provide at least two things; they mix up your workout better than you ever will. I have done about 30 sessions with a trainer and this book camp for a year and have gotten in better shape than I ever (excluding my brute strength which was my only goal in college where I max out at 165lbs of solid muscle and would never go back to that as my joints just canít take benching 100lbs over my body weight anymore. I am content at 150lbs), that being said, when I go back to the gym by myself I immediately fall back in to the same routine I have been doing for a decade, old habits do die hard.

    Second, they motivate you better than you can each and every day. Yes, you could put in a good day, but having a set time you have to go in, no matter how $#@!ty you feel or how busy you are can make or break your overall efforts.

    And while diet is about 70% of the weight loss equation, the 30% of exercise is what makes you feel good about being trimmer and is more likely to give you motivation to eat a healthy dinner vs. junk food.

    They will send you a 1099, the reason they listed you as an indy contractor is to avoid having to pay FICA/Medicare. As such, You will have to pay for it on your return, a kick in the dick 15.3% (pretty sure this rate changed since I did individual returns 8 years ago).

    From leangains.com

    1. Myth: Eat frequently to "stoke the metabolic fire".


    The Truth:

    Each time you eat, metabolic rate increases slightly for a few hours. Paradoxically, it takes energy to break down and absorb energy. This is the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). The amount of energy expended is directly proportional to the amount of calories and nutrients consumed in the meal.

    Let's assume that we are measuring TEF during 24 hours in a diet of 2700 kcal with 40% protein, 40% carbohydrate and 20% fat. We run three different trials where the only thing we change is the the meal frequency.

    A) Three meals: 900 kcal per meal.

    B) Six meals: 450 kcal per meal.

    C) Nine meals: 300 kcal per meal.

    What we'd find is a different pattern in regards to TEF. Example "A" would yield a larger and long lasting boost in metabolic rate that would gradually taper off until the next meal came around; TEF would show a "peak and valley"-pattern. "C" would yield a very weak but consistent boost in metabolic rate; an even pattern. "B" would be somewhere in between.

    However, at the end of the 24-hour period, or as long as it would take to assimilate the nutrients, there would be no difference in TEF. The total amount of energy expended by TEF would be identical in each scenario. Meal frequency does not affect total TEF. You cannot "trick" the body in to burning more or less calories by manipulating meal frequency.

    Further reading: I have covered the topic of meal frequency at great length on this site before.

    The most extensive review of studies on various meal frequencies and TEF was published in 1997. It looked at many different studies that compared TEF during meal frequencies ranging from 1-17 meals and concluded:

    "Studies using whole-body calorimetry and doubly-labelled water to assess total 24 h energy expenditure find no difference between nibbling and gorging".

    Since then, no studies have refuted this. For a summary of the above cited study, read this research review by Lyle McDonald.

    Earlier this year, a new study was published on the topic. As expected, no differences were found between a lower (3 meals) and higher meal (6 meals) frequency. Read this post for my summary of the study. This study garnered some attention in the mass media and it was nice to see the meal frequency myth being debunked in The New York Times.

    Origin

    Seeing how conclusive and clear research is on the topic of meal frequency, you might wonder why it is that some people, quite often RDs in fact, keep repeating the myth of "stoking the metabolic fire" by eating small meals on a frequent basis. My best guess is that they've somehow misunderstood TEF. After all, they're technically right to say you keep your metabolism humming along by eating frequently. They just missed that critical part where it was explained that TEF is proportional to the calories consumed in each meal.

    Another guess is that they base the advice on some epidemiological studies that found an inverse correlation between high meal frequency and body weight in the population. What that means is that researchers may look at the dietary pattern of thousands individuals and find that those who eat more frequently tend to weigh less than those who eat less frequently. It's important to point out that these studies are uncontrolled in terms of calorie intake and are done on Average Joes (i.e. normal people who do not count calories and just eat spontaneously like most people).

    There's a saying that goes "correlation does not imply causation" and this warrants further explanation since it explains many other dietary myths and fallacies. Just because there's a connection between low meal frequencies and higher body weights, doesn't mean that low meal frequencies cause weight gain. Those studies likely show that people who tend to eat less frequently have:

    * Dysregulated eating patterns; the personality type that skips breakfast in favor of a donut in the car on the way to work, undereat during the day, and overeat in the evening. They tend to be less concerned with health and diet than those who eat more frequently.

    * Another feasible explanation for the association between low meal frequencies and higher body weight is that meal skipping is often used as a weight loss strategy. People who are overweight are more likely to be on a diet and eat fewer meals.

    The connection between lower meal frequency and higher body weight in the general population, and vice versa, is connected to behavioral patterns - not metabolism.

    That article addresses the amount of energy it takes to burn X calories, it says nothing to the concept of gaining or lossing fat in the system.

    It's not a simple burn fat vs. store fat, meal frequency "keep your metabolism" up thing. You burn and store fat from different types of calories at different ratios depending on what you're doing while your body is demanding energy, and the rest are stored as fat. It's not an on/off switch.

    The reason the cal in < cal out works is because no matter what type of stored energy your body is burning for its energy, it's using caloric intake and stored fat reserves
