In brief: Insensitive loses

The humidity of your exhaled air approaches 100%, which is why it frosts in the cold or you can fog up a mirror. This expelled humidity will eventually deplete your body fluids if they are nor replaced.
It is considered an insensitive loss, as you don't recognise it as you would urine losses.
