About Fat Cells & Weight Loss

Total nutrition and weight loss are like Raggedy Ann and Andy - they go hand in hand. And when it comes to weight gain - the culprit is often related to excessive fat intake.

Fat Cells, Do they ever go away?

Unfortunately, no. Once we overeat and don't expend the unused energy, the body creates pockets - or cells so that the energy can be captured - stored for later use.

So, why isn't the body smart enough to simply release unused energy as waste?

That's a great question. And if was capable of doing such, no one would ever have to worry about dealing with extra pounds or with losing weight. It's certainly not a fun experience. I know - I've been through the process myself, dropping over 125 pounds of fat going on two decades ago. Oh my - those days were absolutely horrible to get through.

Now as to the question, the reason that extra energy is not released via waste amid the digestive process is because the body treats energy as a precious natural resource - much like we do our own natural resources [oil, gold, and....er....chocolate, preferably dark chocolate]. Next Page: Body Fat
