Fat can directly impact the weight loss. Your fat cells are regulators for how much fat comes in and how much goes out which can be also called as the fat management system of your body. This also determines the quantity and size of fat cells in your body. Energy is stored as fat in these specialized fat cells. There is some communication protocols defined within the system of fat management in your body. The fat management system of your body communicates with the brain for shutting down your appetite when you have consumed your food enough. This fat management system also starts the fat-burning operation for using the stored fat from your fat cells. Weight loss will not work properly if you do not regularize your fat diminisher system. Aging can also disrupt the communication system or degrade or turn it off some of the mechanisms which can help to keep your body slim.
White Fat Cell and Brown Fat Cell
Your fat is stored in two types of cells. The first one is white fat cell and other is brown fat cells. The white cells can store triglycerides and secrete leptin, adiponectin and resistin. Adiponectin and Resistin can affect your appetite and metabolic processes. They can grow up to four times of their size before dividing and forming new fat cells. However, brown fat cells are used for generation of heat in your body.
Most of the fats that your body is able to digest are composed on triglycerides. If you store triglycerides in excessive amount then weight gain can occur. This was not an issue when you were young as the communications signals were strong and it helped to shut it down and burn the extra calories. After you grow up, you will find that you are getting fatter as the fat diminisher system is not that much strong even if you eat less and exercise. Enzymes and inflammation can also cause the disruption in the fat management system of your body.
