Weight loss, in the context of medicine, health or physical fitness, is a reduction of the total body mass, due to a mean loss of fluid, body fat or adipose tissue and/or lean mass, namely bone mineral deposits, muscle, tendon and other connective tissue.


It can occur unintentionally due to an underlying disease or can arise from a conscious effort to improve an actual or perceived overweight or obese state.

Weight loss hormones are those same hormones that are the fat burning hormones. 


They include:  Growth hormone, glucagon, adrenaline, thyroid and testosterone.  When all the right conditions are met, the fat is actually released, not burned.
