4 Change The Na­ture Of Your Fat

Men's Health (Singapore) - - HEALTH -

Not all body fat is harm­ful. Vis­ceral fat is white fat—a type as­so­ci­ated with an un­healthy me­tab­o­lism. But an­other kind—brown fat—burns calo­ries and helps the body gen­er­ate heat. We don’t have a lot of brown fat and lose it as we get older, says Dr. Co­hen. Pre­lim­i­nary re­search also sug­gests that as you gain girth, you may ac­tively switch healthy brown fat to un­healthy white fat.
