  • The fat you have stored is converted into energy (by breaking the chemical bonds between the molecules). Your body's cells then use the energy that is released to carry out their regular metabolic processes. Another byproduct of this catabolic (breakdown) process is heat. For instance, when you exercise vigorously and 'use' a lot of energy, you get hot and you sweat to maintain your normal body temperature. Fun stuff. : )

  • It's converted to the energy your body uses, and the waste of that leaves in those forms.

  • once you have fat cells they never go away they just shrink. They shrink by turning into energy
