Kiss Your “Quarantine Bod” Goodbye With CoolSculpting
If you’re anything like most of us, you’ve been easing back into your fitness routine – whether at the gym, by enjoying a brisk jog, or making the most of your home workout routine – to get rid of that stubborn “quarantine bod”!
You might not realize it when looking in the mirror, but not all body fat is created equal! In fact, our body has three (3) unique types of body fat, each of which has it’s own location on the body, set of associated risks, and purpose.
All Fat Isn’t The Same
To understand the best way to kiss your “quarantine body” goodbye, first it’s important to explore and understand the different types of fat we all have:
The first type of fat is essential fat – which is contained in our bone marrow, nervous system, and heart – and is key to the body functioning normally.
The second type of fat is called or “brown fat” – which can be seen as beneficial – when activated, it can burn “white fat” (which we will discuss in a moment).
The third type of fat is known as storage fat, or “white fat”, which is what happens to our body when consuming excess calories. While a small amount of storage fat regulates body temperature and providing cushion to the organs – in excess this is the fat that causes unsightly bulge and endangers our health.
Without getting too scientific – the job of white fat is simply to store energy. When small, fat cells procedure a hormone known as adiponectin – which among other things protects from heart disease and diabetes. However, as our fat cells expand with weight gain this hormone decreases and puts us at risk for these conditions.
Two Types of Storage Fat
Storage or white fat is subdivided in two different categories.
Visceral Fat – the fat surrounding our organs is known as visceral fat. Often a big belly is the physical appearance of an increase in visceral fat, and can prove to be a risk for cardiovascular disease. Visceral fat also increases inflammation - visceral white fat is not your friend!
Subcutaneous fat – This is the fat that is directly under the skin and appear in the thighs, glutes, and abdomen
Why Working Out Doesn’t Always “Look” Like It’s Working
When we work out, we can’t “spot target” fat, although for many people belly fat is the first to begin to disappear. Weight loss is proportional, so even as you lose weight your shape will stay intact.
When you reduce calories below what you burn and exercise more, you’ll lose that harmful fat first. While this visceral fat loss is great for health, it’s subcutaneous fat that often sticks around much longer and doesn’t seem to vanish, no matter how hard you may be working out.
While it may be annoying to look at, it can be reassuring to know that subcutaneous fat poses far fewer health risks than visceral fat.
