In Weight Control: A Question of Calories or Insulin?, Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt will delve into the controversies of the energy balance equation, suggesting that "calories consumed" versus "calories burned“ is an oversimplified explanation for how to control weight. The lecture will also discuss how insulin regulates energy balance, including how to address a few of the most common objections to this concept.
