Insulin: Body Weight and Energy Production Part 2

ByCrossFitMay 22, 2020

On March 12, 2010, Coach Greg Glassman and a small crew visited Dr. Scott Connelly in Los Angeles. The intent was to tap into Dr. Connelly’s vast knowledge of metabolism, particularly as it relates to long-term fitness and health.

The result was over 90 minutes of education about the relationships among glucose, insulin, ATP, protein, body weight, and health.

Topics include:

  • Why a calorie is not just a calorie.
  • How insulin resistance was evolutionarily beneficial.
  • How “dieting” can make you fatter.
  • What happens when you hit the calcium wall.
