The Lomonosov-Lazoisier law (the law of conservation of mass) leaves no doubt that extra pounds of adipose tissue are extra calories that came with food. The mass of substances that entered into a chemical reaction is equal to the mass of the formed substances. This is the law of nature.

“When obese patients say that they eat little, they are most often sincerely mistaken,” writes doctor Zukhra Pavlova. – They just think that their portions are of normal size and moderate in composition of proteins-fats-carbohydrates. They don’t notice their biting between meals. If you start keeping a food diary, writing down everything responsibly, you can become aware of the problem even before coming to the doctor. Any change starts with awareness. You have to see the problem in order to start solving it.
