Here is Where The Fat Actually Goes When You Burn It Off!
Fat is something almost everyone wants to lose. Exercise and diet are two of the most successful ways to lose it. The thing most people don’t know is where the fat goes when they burn it. Does fat simply evaporate into the air when you burn it? The answer is that most of your fat does disappear into thin, or “fat” in this case, air. Let’s explore why you should lose weight before examining what happens to your weight when you do lose it.
Why is Losing Weight Important?
Losing weight is one of the most admirable things you can do. It can dramatically reduce your chances of acquiring heart disease, make you live longer, and make your life more enjoyable. Weight loss can reduce the amount of work your body has to do. This can alleviate stress, improve how well your blood circulates, reduce your risk of acquiring weight-related diseases like diabetes, and reduce your risk of becoming depressed.
The biggest benefit, however, that weight loss can bring is a change about your own self-image. Studies have found that exercise, a key component to weight loss, can treat cases of clinical depression. The result of weight loss is a happier, healthier and longer life. This is something that everyone should have.
So, Where Does The Fat Go?
With the benefits of weight loss understood, the more curious question of where fat goes when you burn it should be answered.Contrary to what you may think, most of your fat does not get turned into energy. Only a small percent of your fat gets released as energy, as it is only the chemical bonds being broken between carbon molecules.
The majority of your fat gets broken down into water and carbon dioxide. You expel the carbon dioxide when you exhale. The water gets used in your body and released through sweat, urinating and other processes responsible for disposing of waste.
Don’t Be Afraid of Disappearing Fat
The fat you lose really does disappear into “thin” air. The best part is that no part of the fat you lose goes to waste. Plants reuse the carbon dioxide and water to grow. Something unhealthy and dangerous like excess fat can be turned into something beautiful and useful.
The only thing stopping that fat from being transformed is your own will. Get out there, start eating right, and exercise regularly to turn that unattractive extra flab into something beneficial.
