Fat Family in Front of Fast Food Background

The First Law of Thermodynamics

Sadi Carnot (1796-1832) is considered the “father” of thermodynamics. You may wish to do further research on the subject. Thermodynamics came about primarily from work done on steam engines. However, the laws have far reaching implications into the design of the universe.

The Law

The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can not be created or destroyed. Energy can only change forms. The official way to say it is like this. The change in a system's internal energy is equal to the difference between heat added to the system from its surroundings and work done by the system on its surroundings.

In plain and simple terms, it means that energy added to a system must be expended through work. So, let's apply this principle to obesity.

Obesity Law of Thermodynamics

The math equation would state that calories consumed=change in energy + work. What does this mean? It means that food energy is changed to biological energy for the body. The energy to maintain life, plus the work we do as an individual is the amount of energy the body consumes. In the body, the excess energy is then processed by the body and stored in fat tissue.

Obesity Implications

There are a lot of myths surrounding obesity. One myth is that people will get fatter if they eat at night than if they eat in the day. Another myth is that a large breakfast will make you lose weight. The law of thermodynamics proves these statements false. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is this. The calories put into the system must be less than what the individual uses through biological activities and work. To lose weight, the only thing that matters is that you consume less calories than your body uses. The first law of thermodynamics proves this to be scientifically true.

You can also reason that a larger body or more muscular body will take more calories to maintain it. That means that body size, and muscular size will have an effect on calories that can be consumed.

Internal and External Influences

The first law of thermodynamics only works on a closed system. The human body is constantly barraged with external things that can change the internal system. This means that the internal system is in a constant state of flux.

This means that you need to track your weight loss and continually make adjustments. For example, as you lose weight, you will find that you plateau at certain times. The thinner you get, the less calories your body needs to maintain itself. Weight loss will become more difficult and you may need to cut calories even more than you might have presumed from the beginning.
