4. The effects of the “sugar crash”

Stop the #sugar crash. Avoid simple sugars (soda!) they jolt sugar level up then quickly crash = fatigue.

10. How much dairy should we consume?

Build your bones: eat liquid calcium foods like fat-free milk or light soy milk every day.

12. The effects that alcohol has on metabolism
