Body fat might be the last thing you’d want to hear if you’re struggling to lose weight or maintain a healthy body weight. But did you know that a certain type of fat could actually work on your favor – to benefit your health and to help you lose more weight?
That’s brown fat (brown adipose tissue, BAT).
This type of fat is found in the human body at varying degrees. And those with higher levels of it in their bodies are said to be SLIMMER AND HEALTHIER than their counterparts of the same age are.
However, the level of brown fat in the body decreases as we age – and yes, blame it on aging coupled with unhealthy lifestyle, poor diets, lack of exercise, smoking, drinking and stress. What else have we forgotten here?
