People on weight-loss diets often lose weight quickly at first, but then more slowly. This is for all the following reasons expect
the initial weight loss is mostly fat.
Only approximately ____% of the energy in the glucose molecule winds up in ATP, the rest is lost  as body heat.
During periods of fasting, fat is said to have a protein-sparing effect because the body
