It has been a lot easier and tastier than I imagined, and after reading many studies about how animal-based products harm the body, I am very pleased I have made this choice. I wish more people could see how the American diet, high in fat and protein, is the cause of so many health problems, from heart disease, to diabetes, and osteoporosis, to chronic fatigue and pain, as well as malnutrition. Thank you for this wonderful information. I am very glad to have started my vegan diet about 5 weeks ago.

Thank you for the interesting question. The answer is that the weight is metabolized finally ending up mostly as water and CO2. From an earlier article (actually a rage on the dangers of sports nutrition) I put up this question from Stryer Biochemistry that might shed some light on where your weight goes. This is also interesting especially to the long distance endurance athlete because of the preservation of water when you are burning fat. question number two ... the "camel's hump" From Stryer Biochemistry "Compare the H2O yield from the complete oxidation of 1 gram of glucose with that of 1 gram of tripalmitoylglycerol. Relate these values to the evolutionary selection of the contents in a camel's hump." "One gram of glucose (molecular weight 180.2) is equal to 5.55 mmol, and one gram of tripalmitoylglycerol (molecular weight 807.3) is equal to 1.24 mmol. The reaction stoichiometries indicate that 6 mol of H2O are produced per mole of glucose oxidized, and 49 mol of H2O per mol of tripalmitoylglycerol oxidized. Hence, the H2O yields per gram of fuel are 33.3 mmol (0.6g) for glucose, and 60.8 mmol (1.09g) for tripalmitoylglycerol. Thus, complete oxidation of this fat gives 1.82 times as much water as does glucose. Another advantage of triacylglycerols is that they can be stored in essentially anhydrous form whereas glucose is stored as glycogen, a highly hydrated polymer (p. 605). A hump consisting mainly of glycogen would be an intolerable burden -far more than the straw that broke the camel's back!" Hello Mike … Thank you for the interesting question.

question number two … the “camel’s hump” From Stryer Biochemistry

“Compare the H2O yield from the complete oxidation of 1 gram of glucose with that of 1 gram of tripalmitoylglycerol. Relate these values to the evolutionary selection of the contents in a camel’s hump.”

“One gram of glucose (molecular weight 180.2) is equal to 5.55 mmol, and one gram of tripalmitoylglycerol (molecular weight 807.3) is equal to 1.24 mmol.

This sounds like a silly question, but I think there is a side to it that some people will find illuminating (I know I will). That is, when you lose weight, where does it go? Everyone talks about calories in/calories out. Sure, that's useful. But if you "ride the scales" everyday when trying to pull off pounds, one may start to wonder, What about pounds in/pounds out? So, on a pound for pound basis, when food and liquid is consumed, and equal amount must be released for weight to remain constant. Basically, my question amounts to, in the metabolism of triaglycerides and glucogen, is there a proportion of liquid byproduct (water) to solid waste that must be expelled by the body? My question ignores the effects of sweat, as I think that must be dehydration weight loss. But please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks for reading this! Mike Dr Mericle:
