We learned in school that matter is never created or destroyed, it simply changes form. So some people ask: “When I lose the weight, where does it go?” Yesterday, the National Public Radio (NPR) highlighted research performed by Dr. Ruben Meerman (physicist) and Andrew Brown, a lipid researcher at the University of New South Wales.
It turns out that what we know about aerobic exercise and burning fat is true. The following is a chemical formula that describes what happens (Shute, 2014):
C55H104O6+78O2 —> 55CO2+52H2O+energy
C55H104O6+78O2 is called a triglyceride. Triglycerides are a type of fat that doctors watch as part of our routine physicals. It turns out that when a triglyceride is burned it becomes carbon dioxide (which we breathe out of our bodies), water (we sweat and exhale), and energy.
If you have a New Year’s resolution to lose weight, sign-up for an initial consultation to see how hypnosis can help you stick to the plan www.monroehypnosis.com/calendar and turn those extra few pounds into carbon dioxide, water, energy, and a thinner, happier you!
