Fat Cells and Enzymes: How Your Body WorksThere are a lot of myths out there about how your body works. It’s not hard at all to find out the truth. Scientific research has revealed the facts, and these facts are available in a wide location of places. But the myths sometimes sound a lot better, and thus people stop hunting around for the facts about how something like fat cells work in their body. For instance, one of the biggest myths floating around about fat is that, with a little bit of effort, fat is able to be transformed into muscle. Fat is not protein, first and foremost, and there’s nothing within a fat cell that would cause it to suddenly transform into a protein. So this is a myth that’s been around a long time, but it’s unequivocally false. Another myth you’ll find floating around the weight loss world is that some medications or techniques out there, usually very expensive (ironic, huh?), can help your body produce enzymes that will burn away the fat while you sleep, while you eat, and leave you looking slim and trim in no time at all. Again, this is another myth about fat that is completely false. Your body contains absolutely no enzymes that are able to break down fat cells on their own. I know; it’s very sad when you think about it. The process of burning fat in your body is a complicated one, and one that you should understand fully before attempting to get on any type of fat-burning diet.
Fat cells group together under the dermis and continue to pile up until which time they are used. Simply put, unless your body needs them, they’re going to stay there and continue to pile up. You can force your body to use them by being active and using up the energy. Once your body’s energy is depleted, it will immediately start busting open fat cells, stealing their energy, and burning them away. To aid in this process, obviously, it’s not wise to ingest any more fat than you need. This is what proper diet and exercise is all about. Avoid the so-called miracle cures; avoid the medications and myths. Focus on the science and losing weight, while still probably difficult, is something you can achieve.
