Calories, Energy Balance, Thermodynamics & Weight Loss

… “Things we’ve got wronger than a very wrong thing”! As the brilliant Dr Malcolm Kendrick would say – and Black-adder before him!

Why do we say “eat less/do more”? Does it work? What do the laws of thermodynamics actually say? (because it isn’t “eat less/do more”)

Why do we say “to lose 1lb of fat, we need to create a deficit of 3,500 calories”? Is any part of this equation correct? Do the 7 leading public health authorities in the UK know why they say this? Does anyone?

What is human fat tissue? How do we lose it? i.e. how do we lose weight? (because it isn’t “eat less/do more”)

And much more.
