Your body considers its fat to be a precious resource to be defended and protected.
Want to know how much your body defends its fat?
A recent study of women seeking liposuction treatment showed that after the fat is literally sucked out – it returns – within a year – just to a different part of the body.
So get your thighs sucked out, and you could end up with a new belly – or fat upper arms, etc.
The hypothesis is that the fat doesn’t come back to the liposuctioned area because of the previous trauma. Your fat just looks for a new home in another (safer) neighborhood.
As one doctor said, “It’s another chapter in the ‘You can’t fool Mother Nature’ story.”
The really sad thing is, more than half of the women in the control group, even after they were told the results, still wanted to undergo liposuction. WTF?
Now, I already knew that fat cells are your friends forever. When you diet, you don’t lose fat cells, you simply “collapse” them, make them smaller, not less in number. What I didn’t know is that your body carefully controls the number of its fat cells. Fat cells live about 7 years, but when one dies your body makes another to take its place. And apparently when you suck fat cells out or even have them surgically removed, your body replaces them.
So you can love your fat where it grows, or you can try to remove it and you can take your chances on whether you like where the fat decides to live next.
Me and my fat ass have agreed we should live together in peace, harmony, and love; and the only time that fat has to move is when I shake my booty!
