How does fat leave your body?

When you lose fat, how does it leave your body? Through potty, or through poop? Or both?

No! I have not noticed that. But I will make a point to do so now! Looking forward to "going" again!

Info I found:

It left mainly as carbon dioxide (you exhaled it) and water (you peed
it). Fat is made of mostly carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Your body
can "burn" fat to get energy, that is, break it down into CO2 (carbon
dioxide) and H2O (water). These substances are then readily disposed
of. The same thing happens if you heat up a pan of oil on the stove
so hot that it catches fire. It burns, forming carbon dioxide and
water vapor. If you let it all burn away, there will be basically
nothing (like ashes) left in the pan, it will all be in the form of
gasses in the air. I'm sure there are all kinds of complicated ways
in which your body metabolizes fat, so this answer is a bit
oversimpified, but I think on the most basic level it's right.

Actually, your body uses it for energy. What you pee, poop, breath or sweat out is the bi-product of fat burning. (think smoke and ash after a fire)

OK, then what about those who are not exercising reguarly and losing? Am I to understand that just by normal every day energy level (i.e. walking upstairs to do laundry, breathing, etc.) is enough to burn the fat and calories you consume?

Yes there is no other way for fat to leave your body.......... except liposuction.
It is one of the body's fuels.

Seriously Toni, if you have a recurring oil slick on your terlet you need to go to your doc and ask to be evaluated with a gastroenterologist. It's not good. And it has to do with the health of your liver/gallbladder, etc.

Sometimes if we overeat protein for an extended time it can cause liver damage in people prone to liver damage.

Seriously.

In answer to where does fat go? As some already posted, fat is used and metabolized as energy when we are tapping into it. The by products of metabolism of fats are either respired out, peed out, pooped out, or sweated out.

Ummmmm, I too get the oil slicks on this woe. I wonder if it has anything to do with having my gallbladder removed.

Sorry - I've heard people mention that before on here as well.

I still have my gallbladder. It's not like a black oil slick or something - but sometimes there is a "hint" of swirliness on the top. LOL I can't be the only one. But an earlier post has me concerned about kidneys I tried researching online but couldn't really find anything? I don't seem to be having any health problems?

My oil slick is the same. I don't feel too concerned about it, I think it only happens when there is not a lot of fiber to soak things up.

Oli Slick

I get the oil slick as well. One time one of my kids who was raising baby duckies and keeping them in the bathroom (the warmest room in the house) had an accident. when I was getting up from the stool, one of the duckies jumped up on the ledge of the tub and scurried and dove straight into the loo. I went into rescue mode and fished the ducky out of toilet and immediately started to wash it down with Dawn dishwashing liquid. The ducky survived, but I was never able to completely rid that poor creature of the feint smell of coconuts.
