Dr. Connelly of 'PROGENEX'

On March 12, 2010, PROGENEX Founder Dr. Scott Connelly and CrossFit Founder Coach Greg Glassman sat down to talk about metabolism, and , in particular, how it relates to your long-term health and fitness. The result is more than 90 minutes of education about the relationships between glucose, insulin, ATP, protein, body weight and health. It is a very deep, fast-moving seminar that is extremely enlightening. Some of the topics covered in the full version are:

• Why a calorie is not just a calorie.

• How insulin resistance was evolutionary beneficial.

• How "dieting" can make you fatter.

• What happens when you hit the calcium wall.
