How Fat Loss Works

The Mathematics of Weight Loss

In the industry, we talk often about body composition & how we measure changes in physique.  Recently, one of my peers brought the following TED talk video to my attention.  It breaks down the chemistry of how we lose weight & where it actually goes.  This video is 20 minutes long, but I think it's a piece that many of you would enjoy.

It goes through the math behind the chemistry of weight loss. And specifically addresses the controversial claim that if we actually breathe out fat? Yes, this is true.

As a Chemistry major, this is a piece that spoke to me. The stoichiometry here gave me a small bit of PTSD, but it's a fascinating talk.

I hope this lecture gives you a bit of insight on the "how" happens for the body transformations you enable for your clients in the wellness & fitness industry.
