Where Does Your Fat Go, When you Lose Weight?, Vol. 420, August 24, 2017
I wonder if you wondered, as I have for many years, what happens to the fat that is lost when a person loses weight. Many people wrongly believe that it is digested and exits your digestive system. However, that is really not the case at all – yes, the food you eat does get digested and the waste products exit your body, however, that isn’t the same thing as explaining where the fat goes.
Danette May at danettemay.com teaches us what really happens to the fat. It is a chemical reaction as are most things in life. She explains in her blog “that you breathe out lost fat.” This is because fat is a combination of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen. When fat is broken down the CO2 (one carbon with 2 oxygen atoms) and water, H2O (two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom that fat turns into CO2 and water, as urine and sweat.
Now, I know that in the many reports and books I have read over the years, I have been told that exercise is not as important as the food that you eat. Well, that is very curious, because when you exercise, you are breathing out a lot more CO2, so why wouldn’t you exercise for weight loss?
Danette May speaks of a study that was done at the University of New South Wales in Australia, where they found the following:
To oxidize ten kilos (22 lbs) of fat, you need to inhale 29 kilos (64 lbs) of oxygen. This produces 28 kilos (62 lbs) of CO2 and 11 kilos (24 lbs) of water.
Ms. May suggest that you always breathe through your nose, to increase oxygen intake.
Maintain a steady breathing pattern while exercising to make sure your muscles are getting enough oxygen. You don’t want to cramp up, do you? A short burst of aerobic exercise is what she suggests her clients do because more oxygen is used than during anaerobic exercises.
Just keep your body moving and you will be able to release that extra weight.
Now, let’s get on with the release of that extra fat, myself included!
