Understanding your body fat.

What is Brown Fat?

Brown fat—prevalent in infants but less abundant in adults - generates heat and burns calories when stimulated. We do not want to burn brown fat but our body will in order to survive. Brown fat pads our hands the soles of our feet, cushions all organs, adds the curves to breasts and buttocks. It is possible to lose weight without losing your curves.

What is White Fat?

White fat-the blobby kind that bulges hips, thighs, and bellies—stores energy. Unfortunately that is also where many of the toxins in our super toxic universe are now stored. So it becomes increasingly difficult to burn that fat or to access that fat for fuel. Likewise, as we accumulate stress the same
stress activates our ID adrenal glands, the stress glands of our body, to secrete hormones in response to this accumulated stress.

Losing weight the right way:

When it comes to body fat, most Americans are concerned with losing as much of it as possible. But this is referring to white fat, which is the type that typically accumulates on your belly and thighs.

Another type of fat is called brown fat, and emerging research suggests that many people may be better off increasing this beneficial type of fat. In fact, a new study revealed that one reason you may have trouble staying slim as you get older is because your levels of brown fat generally decrease with age.

A reason for your body's propensity for weight gain as it ages may have to do with decreasing levels of brown fat, which occurs naturally as you get older. Brown fat is a heat-generating type of fat that burns energy instead of storing it, and this may have important implications when it comes to weight loss.

Brown fat has been located in the neck area, around blood vessels (helping to warm your blood), and "marbled" in with white fat in visceral fat tissue. It's now thought that virtually everyone has small amounts of brown fat in their body, although certain groups of people tend to have more brown fat than others. Interestingly, it appears that the more brown fat, or the more activated brown fat, the better, as there are direct correlations between the activation of brown fat and metabolic measures of good health.

For example:

  • Slender people have more brown fat than obese people do
  • Younger people have more brown fat than elderly people
  • People with normal blood sugar levels have more brown fat than those with high blood sugar

Understanding your metabolism:

Long term weight loss comes from understanding how your metabolism works. It is not just about eating less or doing more exercise. It is about understanding how to get the most out of your body and your metabolic system.

The most simple and effective metaphor to understanding your metabolism is the pot belly stove.
Do you remember what a pot-belly stove is? A small cast-iron stove that is powered by wood to make a fire. It is used to cook or just heat up a room. Starting a fire in a pot belly stove is done in steps, start with small twigs, as the fire grows add more twigs. As the twigs burn off, you add a small piece of wood to get the fire nice and hot. Add another log to the fire and you have it warming the surrounding area and is ready to cook a meal on the stove. As the day goes on, you add another piece of wood to keep the fire burning hot.

Think of this pot-belly stove as your own belly within you. Start off with small meals not snacks. A meal is a balance of carbs, proteins and fats. Yes, fats! After hours of eating these small meals, your pot-belly stove is ready for a larger piece of wood or meal. This is your metabolism working, creating a nice hot fire, maintaining energy and burning up unwanted fats within you.
After jump starting your metabolism and getting your body's much-needed foundation working properly. The foundation is "nutrition", the essential core to better health and fitness. it is time to add exercise into the day.

Building lean muscles helps the pot-belly stove burn regularly and more efficiently.
Obesity is the enemy within all of us.
Many of us are battling with extra pounds and it's hasn't been a successful battle. There's an epidemic of obesity in America. And we have forgotten how to maintain our pot-belly stoves.
