glucose + Oxygen -> Water + Carbon Dioxide + Energy

For each bit of glucose converted to water and carbon dioxide,

40% – expells as carbon dioxide
60% – expells as water

Per pound of mass, approximately
84% leaves as H20 (60%+60%*40%)  (sweat, urine,..)
16% leaves as CO2 (40%*40%) (breathing out, exhaling)
