‘Move more eat less’, or as I like to call it ‘The Big Mac’ of weight loss. This is the end-all and be-all of where you, yourself, can be the architect of your own body. Yes! Even you, sitting there reading this right now while eating a Big Mac. You are in charge, no one else. You’re now probably thinking ‘what the f**k is this guy talking about?!’. Well allow me to tell you.
Calories in, calories out; also known as the First Law of Thermodynamics; which is where energy can be transformed from one form to another but cannot be created or destroyed – AKA Food to fat or food to muscle. Now before you go throw that Big Mac in the bin, remember what I just said. It cannot be created or destroyed.
Now the outcome of that food is determined by all the factors you throw at it. Your body requires so much energy a day to just breathe. Now imagine how much energy your whole body needs to move around all day, running after the kids, walking the dog etc., and all this while breathing! I’m getting tired myself just thinking about it.
Now back to the Big Mac. If you ate that succulent double layer of pickle and beef yet still didn’t provide enough energy, or calories as we like to call it, to sustain your body and your daily habits of running around, what would happen? Well you’ve just fallen for the laws of thermodynamics. Your body needs to sustain itself to survive and you haven’t given enough energy to be transformed to another form. So this is where your body has a plan. Yes while you’re thinking away about what to do tonight in your free time your body is working hard. Your body knows exactly where to get that energy back. That’s right, fat!
Your body is pretty smart. It’s a powerful tool that we take for granted and guess who’s driving the ship. That’s right – you! You have to power to make a change, you just gotta wake up that scientist inside and get the power of thermodynamics on your side. Remember, there is no complicated rules to this. The universe has done all the work, you just have to take advantage of the tools the universe has given you. You want to lose weight? Eat less! Want to gain weight? Eat more!
There are no complicated rules to this. Don’t restrict yourself and enjoy your life, because that’s what’s most important. So enjoy your Big Mac and take pride that you, yourself, are a scientist and you have the power to manipulate and change your body to whatever shape you want.
