I must admit that Dr. McGuff white board with detailed explanation of the cell metabolism changed my life years ago. I have watched this video a few times and for a long time, every time I ate foods high in sugar, the vision of the white board was all I saw.
It helped me increase my commitment to health and make better dietary decisions. The video led me to research exercise and impact on energy production, blood sugar, muscle growth, etc.
I highly recommend you watch this entire video and read his book ‘Body by Science’.
