Where does the fat go?

We seem to know so much about losing fat but have you ever actually thought about where it goes when you lose it?! Unfortunately the fat does not actually leave your body, the fat cells simply expand or shrink and the number of fat cells a person has is set during childhood. Fat cells store excess energy from the foods you consume in the form of fatty acids and as the triglycerides are stored within a cell and they force the cell to expand increasing the cells diameter which causes you to gain weight. When you lose weight your body converts fat to usable energy for your muscles and other tissues, which then cause the fat cells to shrink or make you lose weight. I hope this helps explain how to you gain and lose weight. Come into Live Fit if you have any additional questions!
