Watching your Diet, hitting the gym…hopefully you’re following Eat Stop Eat.
And, lucky you, you’re losing body fat.
But..have you ever wondered…where exactly does it go when you ‘lose it’?
Firstly, it’s not actually ‘lost’ as much as it’s used as an energy source to fuel your metabolism. After all, your body fat is really an ‘energy reserve’ to be tapped into when energy from food sources is low. (So the saying ‘burning fat’ is actually correct!)
During this process your fat is used to synthesize high energy molecules (like ATP) the very molecules that fuel your metabolic rate, and during this process is your body fat is broken down into carbon dioxide and water.
The water is lost in sweat, urine, feces and exhaled air, while the carbon dioxide is exhaled.
So…now you know 😉
