Our total number of Fat Cells can actually increase, but not decrease! Fat cells don’t just get bigger as you put on weight! 👙
It’s called Fat Cell Hyper-Phasic.
Generally the number of Fat Cells you have going through adolescence determines the minimum amount of Fat Cells you will have for the rest of your life. This is why a kid that struggles with his or her weight growing up will tend to struggle with weight issues more than others their entire life. It also makes it a lot easier for someone that has been over weight before to put on weight again. Once a fat cell is as big as it can get it starts to be replicated, once this new fat cell is replicated it is near impossible to lose it. The new Fat Cell can be shrunk but it will always be there.
An addiction is just an unmet need in someone’s life that usually all comes back to a safety & security issue in their childhood. Avoid that one will fill usually with a substance, over or under eating or highs like sex & exercise.
It does not matter what the addiction is to, it’s what’s causing the addiction at the ground level that needs to be addressed.
Anything that is done regularly enough that you can’t stop doing that causes you “any” kind of pain or suffering is considered an addiction.
