          FACTS: The average human body has 40 billion corpulent little cells whose primary job is to make you fat!

          These portly little adipocytes (Greek for “fat cell”) are just trying to be helpful, of course. The fat they store provides warmth and protection for your body and even transports essential vitamins such as A, D, E, and K throughout your body. Most importantly, the energy in your fat can keep you alive for months, if the need ever arises.

          But is it likely to do so? Fat chance. In the modern world, overeating is as easy as pie. And when it comes to calories, you are what you eat – minus the two to three thousand calories per day than the average body needs to survive (depending on metabolism, size, gender, and activity level).

          And here’s something else to chew on: it takes about 3,500 calories to make a pound of human fat. That may sound like a lot, but if you over-eat by just five percent, you can put on a pound a month. If you eat twice what you need (think holidays), you can put on a pound a day! Worse still, fat can clog up your arteries and increase your odds of developing deadly heart disease. Now that’s food for thought.

          The good news is that if you consume just a little less than you need, those missing calories add up too – and your little fat cells will be happy to slim down to provide them. Even better, if you can stomach exercise, you can burn over 10 calories a minute! So if you want to lose weight, swallow your pride and try going to the gym. Because that’s the skinny on fat.
