Food Rules Live: Fat and Carbohydrate Metabolism Basics

In this Food Rules Live session I discuss the basics of fat and carbohydrate metabolism.  While the science can get extremely complex, I want to simplify and review the basics.  In the video, below, I discuss metabolic flexibility.  That is, our bodies are capable of shifting between fat and carbohydrate utilization as a main energy source, depending on the state of our bodies.  An understanding of basic human energy metabolism is important to provide context when discussing diet, fat loss, and performance.

Just watch utube carb/fat ratios. Can not read the board. There should be a pdf available.
