3) What is Metabolic Syndrome? How does epigenetics effect your health, ability to lose weight, and process the calories you take in?
4) How does the body process calories? Does eating excess carbohydrates cause the body to transform them into fat? (Short answer YES; Don’t believe the bull in “What the Health” aka What the bull.)
5) What constitutes a “good” workout? What does the body use to fuel your workout and at what time points does it change fuel sources?
