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.
At about 30% body fat the body starts reproducing fat cells.
This is why it is imperative to stop feeding kids cereal, pasteurized milk, juice & all the other crap on the “KIDS MENU” that is considered normal these days.
There is only one way to really make a difference to the obesity epidemic & that’s to look at & educate the next generation..
Most kids these days don’t even know where fruit & vegetables come from.. That’s pretty dam disconnected if you ask me!
