Weight Loss  

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.

The new Fat Cell can be shrunk but it will always be there.
