The Fate of Food
Featured Speaker: Professor Linda Gardner
What happens to food once you ingest it? This lecture will describe the journey food takes from the
time it enters the GI tract until it reaches all the cells. The talk will continue with a simplified discussion of
the metabolic pathways and hormones of the Fed and Fasting states, which describe how and when
carbohydrates and fat are stored or converted to energy. This information will provide the framework
for determining how nutrient metabolism is altered by diets such as intermittent fasting or the Ketogenic Diet.
