You Can't Fool Mother Nature . . . And Her Math Is Flawless
Mother Nature loves balance. She is the one that made up that Physics phrase . . . “every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” Everything we do affects something else whether we like it or not. Since we only get a certain amount of “life” to get us through life, we eventually have to balance that checkbook with the 'ole accountant in the sky. When a person is 20, it seems that the cash will never run out. But, when you run up credit card debt on your body, it is worse than trying to rebuild a Credit Score after a Bankruptcy. You cannot fool Mother Nature. She is a very good mathematician.
Another complication is that everything is really complicated. Mother Nature's math is not 1 + 1 = 2.
It is 1 + 1 – 24 x 8 divided by 3 to the square root of .534289 and on and on and on.
A person can't just say “I am going on a diet and will only eat 1000 calories until I lose 20 pounds.” That is 1+1 thinking. There is more to Mother Nature's Math than 1+1 . . . like . . . How are you sleeping? . . . Are you stressed? . . . What foods are those 1000 calories composed of? . . . Is it warm food or cold food? . . . How are you eating? . . . Are you chewing your food? . . . Are you eating in your car in a traffic jam on I35 listening to Heavy Metal? . . . Are you exercising? . . . Are you over-exercising? . . . What kind of exercise are you doing? . .. Is your Liver working properly? . . . Do you still have a Gallbladder? . . . Is your Stomach producing enough Hydrochloric Acid? . . . Do you have a Thyroid problem? . . . How many 1000 calorie diets have you been on before? . . . If you've been on a lot of them, your body has gotten really good at living on nothing . . .
Mother Nature's Math can feel a bit over-whelming.
