There is an inverse correlation between body weight and life energy (decreasing with age), which usually begins to manifest after age 40-45.

Weight gain.

"To live is to have Qi in every part of your body." To die is to be a body without Qi. For health to be maintained, there must be a balance of Qi."

  • Life energy can be illustrated by a simplistic analogy with cars as the energy of the spark that ignites fuel combustion. You can fill up with fuel, but the car won't start without the spark. We can eat to our fullness, but without the spark, with the right timing and intensity, the person will get sick. The spark (life energy) exists from when life begins and throughout life.

You cannot charge the life-force energy just by eating calories. (Life-force energy # Calories) 

  • Calories can be restored and recharged by eating. Qi energy cannot be restored by consuming only.

Charging life energy is mainly related to happiness, joy, sex with emotions, and satisfaction. These are not easy to find in the modern world.


The tendency to gain weight in adulthood has a more profound explanation than lifestyle and dietary changes.

  • It is due to an increased routing of food and beverages in favor of available energy and fat accumulation and less and less for tissue building and regeneration. There is an inverse correlation between life-force energy and body Weight. (This is usually prominent  after 40-45 in women and men.) There are differences between women and men in the rate of decline in life energy, but gaining extra weight, with no changes in diet and lifestyle, is typical of both sexes.
  • Link: Calories cannot disappear but can be redirected as uncounted.


The weight gain, often aged 40- 45 plus, is not accidental.

The proportion and the amount of food intended for tissue regeneration decrease steadily with age. Therefore, more food is routed to produce instant energy and reserves of fat.

A numerical example for illustration. 

  • Take, for example, a woman who consumes about 2000 calories daily. After age 45 - 40 (approximately), the need for tissue regeneration decreases by 0.5%, 10 calories per day, equivalent to 1.25 grams of fat. But in an annual calculation, it is 456 grams. Every year!

The practical implication is that those who want to maintain a stable weight, over 40-45, must eat less or spend more energy. (Exercise)


Why do people near death lose weight very rapidly? 

Rapid weight loss without dietary and lifestyle changes is a survival mechanism when one is near death. In life-threatening conditions, the body loses weight to maintain the life force. Being lighter makes it easier to maintain higher Qi levels. I lost 24 kg within 24 weeks (going from 92 kg to 68 kg) during my treatment for hepatitis and without making any changes to my diet or physical activity. (I was always exhausted.)

  • I could not get substantive answers on the internet, although I found exciting research (conducted during the '70s) on the soul's (spirit's) weight. Researchers found that immediately after death, people lose 21 grams. (I translate this into Qi energy leaving the body after death.)
  • The second possible reason is that stem cells (cells that can differentiate and regenerate any tissue) are stored in fat. Losing weight triggers stem cells to regenerate damaged tissue. (However, it also releases fat-soluble toxins.)


Maintaining a stable weight in old age requires reducing the amount of food eaten, as the body's requirements are also reduced.

Being significantly overweight in old age is not accidental and is not necessarily the result of low physical activity. 

Frequently asked questions and answers:
Are thin people healthier?
The answer to the question is not necessarily! It is pretty clear that obesity beyond a certain level is not healthy, but at the intermediate levels that characterize most of the population, there are additional variables.
Why is there an inverse correlation between life energy and the tendency to obesity?
The explanation concerns routing the food and drinks between available energy and fat production and building and renewing cells.
Why is sudden weight loss without diet or intense exercise a cause for concern?
Steep weight loss, for no apparent reason, indicates a sharp drop in life energy.
At the age of 40-45 and older, it is necessary to eat less or spend more on physical activity to maintain a stable weight.
As we grow older, the body performs less tissue regeneration. Therefore, a higher portion of the food and drinks goes to produce available energy and fat accumulation. To maintain a stable weight, reducing consumption or increasing caloric expenditure is necessary. (or both together)
Why do people in danger of life lose weight acutely without changing their diet?
The body is an energetic entity. Drastic weight loss often expresses a self-defense mechanism of saving energy. A lighter body is more efficient. On the other hand, there are almost no reserves in such a situation.
Moderate obesity after a severe illness is a sign of optimism.
Slight obesity, after severe, life-threatening illnesses, is often a positive sign, which the body returns to reserves. The patient may still be in a dangerous situation but moving away from a critical condition.

The body's tendency to gain weight in adulthood is explained.
1. Why do most of us naturally tend to gain weight in adulthood?
The phenomenon of moderate but consistent weight gain, especially from age 40 onwards, is widespread, and its explanation has to do with the routing of food between tissue regeneration, energy production, and fat accumulation.

A more detailed explanation:
1. The most suitable answer is answer number 2.
There is an inverse correlation between life-force energy and body Weight. (Usually prominent after 40-45) To maintain a stable weight after age 40, increasing effort is needed both on the side of the calories we consume and their composition and on the side of our activities.
