It boggles my mind that MD's, who usually take biochemistry at the undergraduate and in medical school, somehow, forget the very basics of glycolysis and aerobic respiration. Hell, I was taught this in advanced chemical thermodynamics, biochemistry 1 & 2, biochemical physics, and in molecular biology and I'm not even a biologist.

You speak too fast to let valuable info absorb. You're like fat loss in real life
Aurora Jones (1 month ago)
Yea thats only true if you eat less than your body needs to stay static. And most ppl are fat and static so they dont emanate fat, they just eat and are fat. Its simple, eat less than your body needs and youll loose weight.

oh poo.. you're not "emanating fat" silly. it's no longer fat, but the biproducts CO2 and water as you said. So strange that the experts didn't know. Didn't we all learn about that in biology -- our chemical reactions, like the citric acid cycle? I mean bees turn food into honey, plants suck up soil nutrients like animal poo to make vegetables and oxygen. That's practically all we organisms do is take one thing and convert it into something else. Before it was fat, it was probably sugar in a delicious cookie we ate.

It all makes sense! Ever since my fat roommate moved in i started gaining weight! I never knew I’m inhaling the fat he is exhaling. I need to get an air purifier or something.

Why do people not add both the metric system and imperial system in videos? At least put the imperial system in parentheses. 10 kg = 22 lbs 29 kg = 63 lbs

Daniel Chachanashvili (3 months ago)
u dont burn away fat, fat cells shrink, its as simply as that. im not gonna research the info given in the video, but faulty information on here just by not mentioning that. ppl r just gonna go and think theyre burning away fat from doing nothing

Conservation of mass is not a law. Energy and mass are interchangeable and can generate into each other. There is only one conservation which is the conservation of mass + energy

I’m going to swallow the CO2 and fart it out
Ed (4 months ago)
Ummm....you breathe it out as co2 and h2o! I knew that before the video even started and I'm not a chemist. Seriously? People needed to research this?! Science must be going down hill. It's basic thermodynamics and basic chemistry. Fuel+Oxygen==> energy+ CO2+water!

I am offended and i feel fat.
You guys failed to mention how fat cells do not multiply in concern to weight gain. However they will increase in size as your body stores more energy within them. Throughout your life you will develop more fat cells naturally (not through weight gain) and depending on or age and body type you can have anywhere between 40 billion to 100 billion. When you loose weight it is not that you lose fat cells, rather you're just burning the energy causing your specific amount of cells to shrink in size through your aforementioned video information. This is also a common misconception in health sciences, but the bottom line is that your body does not produce fat cells in response to excess energy intake. In theory if you got fat enough your fat cells could be massive and individually visible.

So, the fat exhaust goes out your exhaust pipe (your mouth)? Nice.

Breathing faster wont help. Your cells have to respire in order for this to work. You can increase respiration rate by exercising

Burn that fat! No, exhale and sweat out that fat. Trainer Rebecca Louise says that sweat is fat crying. Wow, it's actually true!
