Where do body fat metabolism products go?

If I, say, go on a very long run and burn enough calories to metabolize one ounce of fat, how does that weight leave my body? That is, do the products come out in my breath, pee, poop, or some combination? Everything I can find online is either too complicated or too simple to help me find an answer.

Why does reading seem less sedentary than watching TV or surfing the web?

Reading, watching TV, and surfing the web.

Why is it that I feel like I'm burning more calories when I'm curled up with a book than when I'm clicking with my mouse?
