Nutrition Science Series

Nutrition science series cover

The answers to common questions like “Why alcohol makes you fat?” or “Why sugar makes you fat?” are easily found in the internet, but too often contain mistakes or – even worse – are written by someone trying to sell you their latest weight loss product.

For this series I’ve invited Emilio , how I met Emilio. With his 15 years of scientific and teaching experience, he’ll answer these and other questions using a plain language so we can all understand how our body reacts to the food we eat.

All the questions will be answered using science. I’ll pick common questions so Emilio can answer them with scientific facts.

Learning how our body processes food will help us to better understand how our organism works and how our food choices affect it.  A better understanding of who we are will in turn help us to better know what we need.

Sugar is bad for you, we all know that, but cutting down on sugar is a hard sacrifice. When we know why sugar is bad for us, we stop doing a sacrifice and we start doing a change, we say no to sugar because we know why it’s unhealthy. It’s an informed choice based on what we have learned.

Learning about nutrition is an important education step to a better and healthier life as food is the source of energy of our body.

If you’ve have any question that you’d like to be answered, let me know on the comments section. Thanks

Our bodies need a constant supply of energy. Some people believe that they gain weight because their cells are lazy and don’t break enough nutrients, letting the excess accumulate. They claim to have a “slow metabolism”. But does it really exist? And if so, can it be accelerated?
