There is no point in re-inventing the wheel. If you need teaching resources, then we suggest you make use of what is available – at least as a starting point. The links section for teaching will direct you to some useful resources.
Some sites offer various resources, including PowerPoint presentations and video recordings of conferences and other resources.The Obesity Society offers a Slide Library where you can customise your own presentations from hundreds of downloadable slides. Each slide is complete with talking points and references and can be downloaded into your own PowerPoint program for personal and educational use. Most of these obviously relate to obesity, but there are presnetations on metabolism and energy balance.
