Video: Nutrition

McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Olive Garden and China Garden – they all have something in common, they all serve FOOD. But all foods are not created equally. If you want to be healthy, you want to make sure that you are getting what you need. In this lecture, I talk about nutrition, starting with the 6 vital nutrients and where you ind them and how your body deals with those nutrients.

I end the section by talking about Calories and metabolism. What determines how many calories we need on a daily basis? Watch the video to find out.

This is section 35.1 in the textbook Biology: The Dynamics of Life and is part of the chapter on The Digestive and Endocrine Systems.
