# Calorie intake

## When does the body start to burn stored fat?

In order to burn stored fat, you have to create a negative calorie balance (AKA calorie deficit). This means that you would have to burn more calories than your calorie intake. For example, if you subtract the # of calories in to the calories out, the number has to be negative to burn stored fat. After all stored fat has been burned, the body starts to burn muscle tissue

## What is the intake for a 15 year old boy and girl? How many hours do they burn per hour at work?

A 15 year old girl that is not active eats 1,000 calories and if shes active she eats 1,000-1,400 calories. A 15 year old boy that is not active eats 2,200 calories and if he is active he eats 2,400-2,800 calories. Both sexes burn around 500 calories per hour doing work, such as running (constant).

## Auschwitz Worker

According to previous research, the body starts using its stored fat when there is a negative calorie deficit. In Auschwitz, the average 15 year old practically has a negative calorie deficit every hour. So to summarize this, a 15 year old will start to use its stored fat the first hour upon arriving. Then once all the stored fat is burned (in a few weeks), the muscles will start decaying. Unfortunately, the teenagers then die.
