Interesting article that talks about "breathing out fat" I thought it was interesting that it is actually the breaking of the chemical bonds of the molecules that produces the energy.

I read somewhere a few years ago about that sometimes fat is breathed out of the body, your explanation James better explains the process of breathing out fat.

In the big picture you just take a carbon off, add two oxygens, get CO(2), etc.

But of course this is pretty unlikely as to how it really happens. I don't know the Kreb's cycle, but I suspect is provides a step by step way of getting this sort of thing done.

It is like needing 3 molecules to come together at the same point and interact. Very unlikely. Things tend to interact 2 at a time in that world. To make an analogy, it is like a car crash. Two cars come together for an accident reasonably frequently. But how often do the circumstances work out when a three car collision is the only way to make that sort of accident happen? Just my intuition on it all.

LOL... I think I'd like your wife. This sounds a lot easier than the Kreb's cycle.

While driving today, out of the blue my wife started talking about the chemistry of fat burning for fuel. Yup, we are an odd couple, not your typical car conversation.

Here is what she said. Fat is mostly a backbone chain of carbon atoms, with pairs of hydrogen atoms on each carbon atom, like wings, and the odd oxygen atom. Like in this diagram:


When you breath in oxygen O(2) you break down the fat and burn it for fuel, the carbons burn to CO(2), carbon dioxide when extra oxygen is breathed in, and carbon dioxide is breathed out. We all know that we breath out carbon dioxide, but I never thought about the details of why.

The hydrogens have a breathed in oxygen oxygen added to them, and turn into H(2)O, water. In other words a side effect of being a fat burner besides breathing out carbon dioxide is producing water internally.

Just a thought on the details of burning fats for fuel. As you may know (or not) my background is in physics, and I love this sort of stuff. I don't know how useful this is for anyone, but I find it interesting.
