Scientists Have Figured Out What Happens To Burned Fat!


“The research team, led by Ruben Meerman and Andrew Brown of the University of New South Wales, discovered that when 1kg (2.2lb) of fat is fully oxidized (“burnt”), 0.84kg (1.9lb) departs via the lungs as carbon dioxide. The remaining 0.16kg (0.3lb) becomes water which may be excreted in the urine, feces, sweat, breath, or tears.

The analysis shows that the inhaled oxygen required for this metabolic process weighs nearly three times more than the fat being lost.”
