What "kind" of "FAT" in the body - do we need?


Okay . . . so yesterday, we spoke about the 3 "places" FAT is stored in the body.


And that would be . . .


"Essential fat" . . . throughout the body . . . that we "can't" live without


"Subcutaneous fat" . . . just under the surface of the skin . . . that we all "HATE" to see


And "Visceral fat" . . . wrapped around our "organs" . . . that could cause disease


So today . . . let's talk about the 3 "types" of "fat cells" we carry in the body.


Now . . . "WHITE fat cells" . . . are the most predominant type of "fat" in the human body . . .


And they can be found just beneath the skin in the "subcutaneous fat" . . . around internal organs in the "visceral fat" . . . and in the central cavity of bones in "essential fat" . . .


"White fat" stores "energy" and produces a hormone that improves "insulin sensitivity" of the liver and muscles . . . and with this . . . it has the ability to "lower" the risk of "type 2 diabetes".


BUT . . . if we have "TOO MANY" white fat cells . . . this can actually "RAISE" insulin levels and lead to "obesity".


And with this . . . "white fat" stores those "EXTRA" calories from the "EMPTY CALORIE" foods we consume . . . in our thighs, hips, and stomach . . . which again . . . can "RAISE" the risk of heart disease and diabetes.


Okay . . . so what about "brown fat cells" . . . where are they located???


Well . . . "brown fat" starts in the back, neck and shoulders when we're born . . .


Then during childhood and adolescence . . . this fat "scatters" around the body . . .


And finally when we become adults . . . it settles in the neck, kidneys, adrenal glands, heart and chest.


"Brown fat" helps to regulate "sugar" (glucose) levels . . . and fat "metabolism".


Now . . . another big factor to "brown fat" is this . . . it's responsible for "storing energy" and "burning" that energy to "regulate" the body's "temperature".


ARE YOU COLD ALL THE TIME???


Could this be an issue for you???


Okay . . . and finally . . . "beige fat cells" . . .


Now . . . "beige fat cells" actually come from "white cells" . . . BUT . . . function like "brown cells".


"Beige fat cells" . . . are "pea-size deposits . . . and are found scattered beneath the skin near the collarbone and along the spine in adults.


BUT . . . these "beige cells" are actually" BORN from "white cells" . . . and are produced by a "browning process" . . . which is done when the body produces "heat" when its core body temperature "DIPS".


So question . . . when you feel cold . . . is it just the body "changing" some "white fat cells" into "beige"???


Could be!


And . . . this "browning process" . . . is helped and created . . . by "cold temperature", the nervous system and immune system.


So we actually "NEED" cold exterior temperatures . . . for the body to function properly and make these "beige fat cells" to keep us warm.


So tomorrow . . . let's continue with more information about "FAT"!
