Burns

The treatment of burns depends on the depth, area and location of the burn. Burn depth is generally categorised as first, second or third degree. A first degree burn is superficial and has similar characteristics to a typical sun burn. The skin is red in colour and sensation is intact. In fact, it is usually somewhat painful. Second degree burns look similar to the first degree burns; however, the damage is now severe enough to cause blistering of the skin and the pain is usually somewhat more intense. In third degree burns the damage has progressed to the point of skin death. The skin is white and without sensation.

Can you gain more weight than the food you ate weighs?

What's seems wrong is not accounting for calories burned by not even doing anything. Just eating the lard burns calories. It seems like it's like the calculation for power out = power in - friction. Your calories burned is like the friction.
