I had always assumed that the spent byproducts of metabolizing fat were excreted along with the rest of your waste.

Most of the carbon molecules that make up stored fat are exhaled. The lungs are efficiently evolved to remove waste carbon dioxide from the body

Along the same lines, trees grow from the carbon dioxide in air. Thus, you can say that trees grow literally out of the air.

Yep. A shit ton of your mass is expelled as CO2 while losing weight.

So to lose weight you just have to do what you already knew like exercise more and eat less. Done get me wrong it is an interesting talk but nothing groundbreaking.

I think op was asking do you know where the fat physically goes when you do this.

Turns in to energy( motion and heat), Anybody who has done a diet knows that. And apparently some of it goes out through your mouth when you exercise.

watch the video my friend, that perception is exactly what is dispelled by this video, and explains why it is wrong way to think about it.

You'd have to actually be splitting those fat atoms to do a mass to energy conversion. That's radiation in an entirely different spectrum from heat.

The other way would be shedding electrons through grounding, but that's not a signifigant amount of mass, and would imply you're walking around with a constant strong negative charge. And think it might also make you really acidic.

That stored energy idea is in energy stored within a molecular bond. Breaking those bonds doesn't cost mass. In this case it free's up think it was co2 and water or something, which you piss and exhale.
