The 21 Grams Theory was a hypothesis of Dr. Duncan MacDougal who suggested that human souls have mass.

He conducted various tests in 1901 to measure the weight of a soul.

On 10 April 1901, an unusual experiment was about to occur in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

Dr. Duncan MacDougall was going to prove that the human soul had mass, and was, therefore, measurable.

I think it is measured very soon after death and long before anything "outgasses" or any wastes are released. The idea is to measure the leaving spirit very much like you measure your weight on the scales, then take a dump and measure yourself again to see how much your dump weighed. (needs to be 200g per day at least to avoid serious illnesses, according to Dr Greger of Nutritionfacts.org)
