Many people are probably new to this question. YES there is a major difference between the two types of fat in our body. White fat aka the ugly fat lies under our skin and keeps us insulated but is also responsible for the ugly cellulite that we all hate. Another characteristic is that White fat stores energy as fat!
How about Brown fat…often found between the shoulder blades and neck region. Brown fat converts food energy directly into heat. What does this mean for you? Simple Brown fat BURNS MORE CALORIES….thus the more brown fat you have the more calories you burn!!
Brown fat prevents weight gain in individuals by increasing their metabolic rate after overeating! Ever get that feeling of the sweats or body just heating up after a big meal? Well, that’s your brown fat burning food into heat and increasing your metabolism.
So what does this all mean with regards to fat loss? Increase your Brown fat and melt off the pounds.
