    Sweat doesn’t smell. The odor is caused by bacteria on your skin that breaks the sweat coming out of your pores down into acids. Deodorants work by killing the bacteria on your skin that does this. Antiperspirant plug your sweat glands so less sweat comes out to be broken down.

    Most of the fat we burn is converted to carbon dioxide and leaves our body through our lungs. Basically, you exhale fat when you lose it. The rest (around 16%) is converted to water which leaves through urine or sweat.
