So "why" do we "overeat" and what's up with "FAT"?


So today . . . let's better understand . . .


Did you know that unfortunately for years . . . "conventional dieting" . . . told us to eat "non-fat" or "low fat" foods and lots of "carbohydrates" . . . so we'd have "energy to burn off the pounds.


But in "today's" dieting . . . we're being told to eat "high fat" foods . . . and "low" to "no" carbohydrates


So which is it people?????????


Well . . . as I stated the other day . . . this dieting thing has been going on for 2300 years . . . and we can clearly see . . . we "STILL" don't have it right!


So today, let's talk about "fat" itself . . . because we need to understand . . .


Okay . . . so there are 3 different types of "fat cells" in the body . . . white, brown and beige. And these fat cells can be stored in 3 different ways . . . essential, subcutaneous or visceral fat.


So let's first . . . understand "where" fat can be "stored


Now . . . "ESSENTAIL" fat is needed for normal physiological and biological functioning and it's found "in" bone marrow, the brain, spinal cord, cell membrane, muscles and internal organs.


This kind of fat is approximately 3% of the total body weight for men and 12% of total body weight for women.


This fat . . . WE CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT!


Okay . . . now, "SUBCUTANEOUS" fat is the "jiggly" fat visible just under the skin.


And it's normally "harmless" to our health and may even protect us against some diseases.


But . . . this is the "fat" . . . that we all see . . . obsess about . . . and want to so "desperately" get rid of.


And finally. . . "VISCERAL" fat.


Now, this fat "surrounds" our organs. And though it's not visible from the outside of the body . . . it's associated with numerous diseases.


This "SHOULD BE" the fat that we're all worried about and "OBSESSING" about.


And believe it or not . . . you can be a thin person and still have "high" visceral fat.


So simply put . . .


"Essential" fat . . . we "can't" live without.


"Subcutaneous" fat . . . we don't need a lot of and is basically harmless to the body . . .


BUT . . . we "HATE" seeing the "jiggle".


And "visceral" fat . . . can damage our organs if you retain too much.


You see . . . this "fat" is also correlates with "insulin resistance" . . . which can make it hard for the body to lose "visceral" fat.


Now . . . with that being said . . . when we try to lose weight . . . the body has a "natural mechanism" to try and lose the "hard fat" that "surrounds" organs like the liver and kidneys FIRST . . . because this is the dangerous fat to our health.


THANK YOU BODY!!!!


And the best part . . . when the body "CAN" accomplish its mission of reducing this "hard visceral fat" . . . it actually makes the body leaner and stronger.


And the "stronger" the body is . . . the "higher" number of "CALORIES" the body will burn even at "rest". Whoohoo


Next . . . the body will try to lose its "soft subcutaneous fat", like from the waistline and thighs. This is the visible jiggly fat. The stuff we hate to see.


So tomorrow . . . let's continue to learn about "fat" . . . so we will better understand "why" we "overeat"
