We are constantly talking about losing weight and burning fat, but in practice do not understand how this is happening. Many people believe that fat turns into some kind of energy or heat (which is grossly contrary to the law of the conservation of energy). Others believe that the fat turns into muscle tissue or even bone. Someone is sure that the fat cells impossible to destroy.

In their new study, scientists from the University of New South Wales clearly explain what happens to fat when it leaves the body. They presented interesting calculations based on the basic knowledge of biochemistry. The truth is that excess fat we exhaled as carbon dioxide. Namely carbon dioxide and water are the final decomposition products and fats, and carbohydrates in the body. Excess carbohydrates are converted into triglycerides (the scientific name for fats). The goal of the diet is to breakdown and excrete these triglycerides are stored in adipose tissue.
Australian scientists have calculated that to burn 10 pounds of fat the person needs to inhale 29 kilograms of oxygen to produce 28 kilos of carbon dioxide and 11 kilograms of water.
Such is the fate of fat. Scientists have also determined exactly how much fat comes out in the form of gas, and how much – in the form of water. It turned out that 10 pounds of fat and 8.4 excreted via the lungs and only 1.6 – in the form of liquid with the urine, sweat and other secretions. It turns out that the respiratory system plays a major role in the metabolism of fat. Alas, this does not mean that slimming enough to breathe in rhythm. Excessive breathing leads to hyperventilation of lungs, and she, in turn, can cause lightheadedness and loss of consciousness.
