How Fat Leaves The Body

**Remember** 80% of fat leaves the body through the lungs when in a fat loss phase.

Shedding unwanted fat requires unlocking the atoms in triglyceride molecules by a process known as oxidation.

By tracing every atom’s pathway out of the body, the team of scientists at the University of New South Wales in Australia discovered that when 10kg of fat is oxidised, 8.4kg departs the body via the lungs as carbon dioxide (CO2).

The remaining 1.6kg becomes water (H2O).

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

To completely oxidise 10kg of human fat, 29kg of oxygen must be inhaled, producing a total of 28kg of carbon dioxide and 11kg of water.

You don’t just miraculously burn fat by not breathing hard.  You have to burn it and breathe it out

Anyone that has ever got a result has busted their ass.  They sweat.  They get sore.  They get uncomfortable.

So no it doesn’t come out in your pooh from drinking skinny tea as one friend i was talking to about this the other day said.


At some point you will need to train hard to breathe hard.
