I know about this only from the movie "21 grams". Of course in the movie it was about soul, but actually that would be too romantic to believe in this.

I think that weight loss is a serious matter and most of the people are working on this serious problem because increment in weigh mostly affect your health which lead you to death and there is no weight loss issues after death. I will say that overcome obesity and live a healthy life.

Oxygen in each of the 230,000,000 million cells in our bodys .Have a combined atomic weight of approx 3 grams. This is measured in Moles (a Chemistry unit of measure). When a Human body dies the oxygen needed for cell survival is depleted, but is not replaced by the respiratory system, that s why it weights less at the point of death.
My opinion only, and unproved.

Hi. I have doubts about the role of oxygen in a supposed weight loss after death. Oxygen is converted in water in oxydative phosphorylation (ATP synthesis) in mitochondrias. Therefore there should be no loss of weight caused by oxygen. New oxygen does not arrive in cells but CO2 made by Krebs cycle is also no released. I do not know the weight balance in breathing between inspired oxygen and expired CO2.
