As you start to lose weight, your body isn’t just eliminating fat stores. There’s a lot happening behind the scenes as the number on the scale starts to drop, and you can expect to notice a lot of different sensations, especially if you’re losing weight at a rapid pace.

In a nutshell:
But even if you`re losing weight at a steady, healthy pace (usually around one to two pounds per week), you’ll notice some side effects. In this video, we will talk about what happens to your body when you lose weight. Where Does Body Fat Go When You Lose Weight? What happens to body fat when you shed pounds — do you sweat it out, pee it out or breathe it out? It helps to understand that our bodies are designed to store excess energy in fat cells. The extra energy is stored in adipose tissue all around your body in the form of triglycerides.
Smaller amounts of energy are stored in your liver and muscles as glycogen. Your heart needs the energy to pump, your lungs to breathe and your brain to think. Your muscles need energy whether you`re only getting up from a chair or running a marathon. What Happens To Body Fat When You Go On A Diet? When you go on a diet, you take in fewer calories than your body needs.
Because of this deficit, your body turns to fat reserves for energy. Your body must dispose of fat deposits through a series of complicated metabolic pathways. The byproducts of fat metabolism leave your body: Meanwhile, fat breakdown liberates energy for biological functions and physical activity. What Happens To Body Fat When You Exercise? Your muscles first burn through stored glycogen for energy.
After about 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic exercise, your body starts burning mainly fat. Increasing muscle mass may help you burn more calories and raise your basal metabolic rate. Exercise also increases your respiratory rate, so more CO2 leaves your body when you work out. What Happens To Your Body When You Lose Weight If you lose a lot of weight, you may wind up with sagging folds of excess skin.
Skin stretches over time to accommodate extra body mass. When the fat is gone, your skin may not have enough elasticity to shrink back down to your current body shape. If you have just a little sagging, build muscle to make your skin look tauter. Some people who lose weight fast develop gallstones—hard lumps that form in your gallbladder.
When you lose weight by changing what you eat, two-thirds of the weight you lose is fat, and about one-third is muscle. Not only can that leave your skin a little loose, but a loss of calorie-burning muscle doesn’t help you keep going in your weight loss efforts as quickly. If you maintain a good protein intake and do strength exercises as you lose weight, you can shift that ratio a bit so there’s less muscle loss. Protein can also be an extra weapon in helping you continue to lose weight.
