  • How Fear Limits Our Nutritional Status – Video with Marc David

  • A Deeper Look at Vitamin O – Video with Emily Rosen

    A Deeper Look at Vitamin O The word "calorie" can evoke some strong emotional reactions, but when it comes down to it, a calorie is just a measure of the energy that's released when something is burned. As your body metabolizes the food you eat, the energy is either put to use or stored for later. As we know from grade-school science, if you want something to burn, you need to give it some oxygen. The human metabolic process is no different: in order to burn calories, the body needs plenty of oxygen. Luckily, oxygen is readily available and it's completely free. But far too many of us are actually oxygen deficient, and as a result, our metabolism isn't working at its full capacity. Tune in to this exciting new video from IPEtv, with Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. You'll learn how to get your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin O, and keep your metabolic fire burning.

  • Relax More, Metabolize Better – Video with Marc David

    How many people remember their parents telling them to wait 30 minutes after a meal before running outside to play? This piece of folk wisdom is based on some real science: the digestive system is able to function at its best when the body is in a state of rest and relaxation.
