  1. Very informative. Good information and solid performance. Well done. Leaves me wanting more. I did subscribe.

  2. The " eating after 6:00 p.m." thing is actually supported by many studies. JCEM published a study last year showing that eating late in the evening reduces fat burning by 10%, all other factors being equal. There's several rat studies that have also supported this. When you eat is relevant because your hormones fluctuate throughout the day and they can determine how your body reacts to food.

  3. Nutrition is a fascinating subject. I am always running into people that say things about nutrition that I know are not true. So important to get the facts. I especially like the "a calorie is a calorie comment". I have the worst time convincing people of that one. I have kept my weight down since I was a teenager by counting calories. I am an artist and I share my painting demos and studio tours here. So much variety on Youtube. Have a great day!
