The leading cause of death among Americans is chronic diseases. Diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke. These ailments are not something that we are catching, they are symptoms of what we do to ourselves...
The two different equations that I discuss here are used to calculate daily calories (aka Total Daily Energy Expenditure or TDEE): The Katch-McArdle Formula, and The Mifflin-St Jeor Equation.

Today, we discuss one group of alternative sweeteners that have been charging to the forefront of the sugar-free market, the sugar alcohols.
