A Day In The Life Of A Fat Cell
This is interesting reading. I already knew a lot of it but we can always learn something new. I went to step aerobics this morning after having done body sculpt last night. The muscles were a little tired this morning but I kept up pretty well. I had my raisin bran muffin before I left and a smoothie when I got home - almond milk, over-ripe banana, scoop whey protein powder, spoon of almond butter, chia seeds, milled flax meal, 1 packet stevia - very filling, very good.
I am sewing Christmas gifts at the present time so will be getting to that today.
I have read several times that one of the reasons many struggle to keep off weight that has been lost is that fat cells never die or decrease in number. They are just lurking to suck up any indiscretions with our eating. Forewarned is forearmed.
Building muscle is the answer to this in my opinion. Occasional indiscretions can be covered through a BMR that is higher due to muscle mass - plus just the activity of building muscle in itself burns many calories and there is even an afterburn. I have read that we continue to burn calories at a higher rate for up to 3 hours after the workout. What's not to like?
So how have you been treating your fat cells lately?
