  • It is metabolized and eliminated along with all the other waste products.
  • I have not got a clue but what about all of that skin as well?
  • it gets burned up for calories(energy) the same way food would. Fat is just stored energy. To follow up on the skin issue in the other answer, a lot of times the skin doesnt go away on especially fat folks, that where stretch marks and excess skin come from, and why the tummy tuck exists
  • It's burned up and used for energy. The waste products of fat burning are then excreted from the body. The actual fat CELLS remain in the body, but are emptied as you lose weight.
  • When other people lose weight I seem to find it for them...on my hips, butt etc.
  • You don't actually lose fat cells for the most part, the fat cells just shrink. As for where it goes, it gets used up by your body as energy and it gets pee'd out if you're drinking enough water.
  • I think it is all sweat off. Either that or it goes through excretion.
  • You exhale it. Combustion products for fat are exactly two, carbon dioxide and water. Carbon dioxide is obviously exhaled, and every time you exhale--even if the air coming in was only 20% humidity--the air going out is 100%, and ten to a hundred degrees warm which means it carries even MORE water vapor. It is possible that there is a little more urine than usual, but this would require a scientific study which wouldn't be worth the cost or the bother.
  • It passes as waste matter.
  • 1) This process is called Lipolysis: "Lipolysis is the breakdown of fat stored in fat cells." Source and further information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipolysis 2) "All body processes require energy to run properly. When the body is expending more energy than it is taking in (e.g. when exercising), body cells rely on internally stored energy sources, like complex carbohydrates and fats, for energy. The first source the body turns to is glycogen, which is a complex carbohydrate created by the body. When that source is nearly depleted, the body begins lipolysis, the metabolism of fat for energy. In this process, fats, obtained from fat cells, are broken down into glycerol and fatty acids, which can be used to make energy. The primary by-products of metabolism are carbon dioxide and water; carbon dioxide is expelled through the respiratory system. Fats are also secreted by the sebaceous glands (in the skin)."

The proportion of fat in your body will strongly increase. Only if you are doing much exercise for a long time will the fat proportion decrease: "It is important to understand the difference between weight loss and fat loss. Weight loss typically involves the loss of fat, water and muscle. A dieter can lose weight without losing much fat. Ideally, overweight people should seek to lose fat and preserve muscle, since muscle burns more calories than fat. Generally, the more muscle mass one has, the higher one's metabolism is, resulting in more calories being burned, even at rest. Since muscles are more dense than fat, muscle loss results in little loss of physical bulk compared with fat loss. To determine whether weight loss is due to fat, various methods of measuring body fat percentage have been developed." Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dieting#How_the_body_gets_rid_of_fat
  • You may have heard that by following a proper diet and exercise program, you can actually turn body fat into muscle. Not true. Fat and muscle are two separate entities. You must burn fat and build muscle. Here's how fat is burned: When you lose weight (by eating less and exercising more), an enzyme located in fat cells disassembles the fat compounds and sends the components into the bloodstream. Liver and muscle cells take up these components and disassemble them even further until what's left is a compound called acetyl-CoA. Acetyl-CoA then enters the Krebs cycle, a series of chemical reactions that takes place in the mitochondria -- the cell's "power plant." The end product is made up of... • Carbon dioxide, which is expelled when you exhale. • Water, which is lost as urine and perspiration. • Heat, which helps maintain body temperature. • ATP, the molecule that fuels cellular activities that require energy.
  • Who really cares as long as its gone?
  • Hopefully onto the hips of every cheerleader I knew in high school.
  • released as heat which is energy. calories are the measurement of heat.
  • you just crap it out:)
  • To heaven! LOL
  • It goes into a holding cell (picture a little dark rain cloud lurking in the vicinity of your rump) where a few extra pounds are added. This fat cell will be ready and waiting to leap back onto your body at the first sign of diet slacking.
  • It doesn't really "go" anywhere. Fat cells remain in your body... the just shrink as their caloric content is burned for energy. THAT is why it's so easy to Yo-Yo diet (lose weight then gain it all back quickly) The only real way to be RID of fat cells is liposuction, but that has its own risks, not to mention the cost. The best thing to do is to use diet and exercise to shrink the fat cells in your body, and maintain that weight as best you can... and do all you can not to gain any NEW fat cells. ^_^
  • It doesnt go anywhere..fat is just stored energy that wasnt burned..There Fat Cells..and these cells remain in your body but when you lose weight, it just means the cells got smaller
  • Into the atmosphere which contributes to global warming. If you cared about earth, you'd buy a gallon of whole milk and a case of Oreos! (Sorry about the inconvenient truth!)
  • all the fat goes out your asss when you have Dirrea when poop alot you lost sum weight
  • it comes out inn sweat weneva u sweat u r losing weight
  • I believe when you lose the fat, it evaporates into the sky and is one of the main contributing causes of Global Warming. Too many people losing at the same time. We all may have to stay fat for several years to get the orzones back to normal. It's worst in the summer because everybody wants to fit into there swimsuits and and better in the winter because of all that good food we put back on. Its a no win situation like trying to lose weight. You lose it in one place and it pops up in other places.
  • Fat cells do one of three things, they stay the same size, they get bigger, or they get smaller. Fat is nothing more than stored energy due to an excess of calories. Fat cells are mobilized to be used as energy through a process known as lipoloysis and beta oxidation. The fat is broken down into energy the body can use via the blood stream. So the fat cells are still there, they are smaller.
  • 5-8-2017 Fat is made of carbon and hydrogen. The only way it comes out of the body is if it is turned into carbon dioxide and water and then it comes out through the lungs. So that involves a lot of heavy breathing, and that means jogging or aerobic dancing. Figure on losing one pound per week when you are doing things right.
