There have been misconceptions regarding how fat is “burned” for years. Fat does not dissolve with “magic” pills and come out in your urine. It does not melt away into sweat under neoprene shorts or waist belts. It does not disappear by smearing creams on your thighs or lounging in vibrator belts.
Fat is the only one of the three major classes of food material that is stored free of water. Carbohydrate and protein are stored in combination with water, which forms more than half the total weight of these stored materials. So if you think diuretics are a cure for fat, think again.
Note: By the way, don’t deprive yourself of water. The amount of water in your body is an important factor in muscle growth because protein synthesis takes place in the presence of water. That means that if you want to promote muscle growth (and muscles burn lots of calories) drink plenty of water.
Fat is made up of atoms of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. When you breathe and take in oxygen, the fat molecules are combined with the additional oxygen atoms causing oxidation. The products are carbon dioxide (made up of atoms of oxygen and carbon) and water (made up of atoms of oxygen and hydrogen).
TL;DR -> Fat leaves your body through carbon dioxide!
Although breathing is automatic, it is also the only vital life function that you can voluntarily control. (Did you ever try to tell your heart to stop beating or your stomach to stop digesting?) Therefore you can actually affect your metabolism.
What does all that mean?
Oxygen helps your cells metabolize nutrients for energy, maintenance, repair, and healing. The way you breathe has a profound effect on your heart, arteries, and blood flow. Breathing affects the diameter of your blood vessels, your blood pressure, and the work output of the heart. The activity of your brain is directly affected by the way you breathe.
By increasing oxygen, you can bring your own body’s metabolic process into balance. It means that your body will fully cleanse itself at the cellular level, releasing toxins that result in health problems, including obesity.
Remember that your body will always do the best it can with what you give it. Why not give it more?
