Ever wonder where fat goes when it gets burned? I mean, if you want to lose fat, shouldn’t you understand how it is burned in your body? Many people think you only burn fat during aerobic or cardiovascular exercise. Some people believe that fat is only used as a fuel for energy, especially when you lower your caloric intake to force the body into using those fat stores as fuel to replace the energy no longer eaten. Some believe it’s excreted through the urine or feces, while others think the fat is turned into muscle when you exercise and also that muscle turns into fat when you don’t exercise. My favorite one is that fat simply evaporates due to the heat created by muscles during exercise.
