When you lose weight, where does it go?
The body stores the excess protein or carbs in a person’s diet in form of Fat, specifically, as triglyceride molecules, which consist of just three kinds of atoms: carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. For people to lose weight, their triglycerides must break up into building blocks, which happens in a process known as oxidation. Here comes the role of the oxygen to burn fat rapidly.
When a triglyceride is oxidized (or “burned up”), the process consumes many molecules of oxygen while producing carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) as waste products.
To burn 10 kilograms (22 lbs.) of fat, a person needs to inhale 29 kg (64 lbs.) of oxygen. And the chemical process of burning that fat will produce 28 kg (62 lbs.) of carbon dioxide and 11 kg (24 lbs.) of water, the researchers calculated.
During weight loss, 84 percent of the fat that is lost turns into carbon dioxide and leaves the body through the lungs, whereas the remaining 16 percent becomes water, according to medical journal BMJ.
By practicing various breathing techniques in yoga, people can learn how to exhale more carbon dioxide from the lungs and inhale enough oxygen to accelerate the process of oxidation of the fat.
The results show that the lungs are the primary excretory organ for weight loss. The water formed may be excreted in the urine, feces, sweat, breath, tears or other bodily fluids, and is readily replenished,
The calculations also show the frightening power of, for example, a small muffin over an hour of exercise: At rest, a person who weighs 154 pounds (70 kg) exhales just 8.9 mg of carbon with each breath. Even after an entire day, if this person only sits, sleeps, and does light activities, he or she exhales about 200 grams of carbon, the researchers calculated.
A 100g muffin can cover 20 percent of what was lost.
On the other hand, replacing one hour of rest with exercise such as jogging, removes an additional 40 g of carbon from the body, the researchers said.
The fates of all the atoms in the body, the secret to weight loss remains the same: In order to lose weight, one needs to either eat less carbon or exercise more to remove carbon from the body.
None of this biochemistry is new, but for unknown reasons it seems nobody has thought of performing these calculations before,” study authors Ruben Meerman and Andrew Brown of the University of New South Wales in Australia, said. “The quantities make perfect sense but we were surprised by the numbers that popped out.”~The article is inspired by livescience.

Our sedentary life style and eating habit is also responsible for oxygen deficiency. Junk and highly cooked foods deplete oxygen stores from the body (4). They may be called unhealthy foods as they use up more oxygen then they give off. Processed sugar, white flour, hamburgers, French fries and pizza and many others, are major oxygen users. To maintain a good health you need to leave the habit to eat junk food which absorbs your oxygen from your body. Healthy fresh and oxygenated foods are the best option for a good health.
