Every day we are bombarded with stories about diet and weight loss, but we still have many misconceptions regarding weight loss.
Some people believe that fat is converted into energy or heat – in violation of the law of conservation of mass – while others believe that fat somehow ejected or even converted into muscles.
The third claim that the fat tissue (adipose tissue) can never lose once acquired, but that can only wince when you practice.
Research Andrew Brown from the University of New South Wales and Australian television star (former physicist) Reuben Mirmena concludes that when you lose weight you breathe out fat. The new research is based on current knowledge of biochemistry.
“It is surprising how much ignorance and misconceptions exist about the metabolic process of losing weight.” Said Braun. “The correct answer is that most of the mass in the form of exhaled carbon dioxide. Going into the air. “Adds Mirmen.
Excess carbohydrate and protein is converted into chemical compounds known as the triglycerides (which consist of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen) which are stored in lipid droplets of fat cells.
To lose weight, try to metabolize, and triglycerides, which means releasing carbon that is stored in our fat cells.
To lose 10 pounds of human fat is necessary to breathe 29 pounds of oxygen, to produce 28 kilograms of carbon dioxide and 11 pounds of water. It is a metabolic fate of the fat.
The duo then calculated the proportion of the mass stored in the 10 kilograms of fat that exists as carbon dioxide and water when you lose weight. By following the path of these atoms from the body, they found that 10 of these as much as 8.4 kilograms exhaled as carbon dioxide.
It turns out that our lungs are the primary organ for the removal of excess pounds. The remaining 1.6 kilograms becomes water, which is eliminated through the urine, feces, sweat, saliva, tears and other bodily fluids.
Since the holidays are getting closer and closer, does this mean that you just need to breathe more to eject the excess pounds? No.
Faster inhaling and exhaling of the necessary metabolic rate of the individual leads to hyperventilation accompanied by dizziness, tremors and loss of consciousness.
