Good health with an added bonus of that perfect body are the results of the all the hard work and time we invest.
The cyber space is full of varied diets for specific body types, exercise regimes and numerous tips and tricks to guide you through your weight loss journey, but no one really wonders where all the fat you burn really goes.
As per a report in the Metro, fat transforms into carbon dioxide and exits the body as you breathe. Now you know, why breathing techniques are given importance while working out.
Researchers reveal that "10 kg of fat turns into 8.4 kg of CO2 and 1.6 kg of water", the report explains. We also release the water as bodily fluids like urine, tears and sweat.
However, it is entirely up to us to convert fat into carbon dioxide by exercising and eating right in order to get rid of it.
