Now is the time many resolutions are left behind after a promising start.  Usually weight loss is a resolution that falls short.  Now science says it may not be you at all in the quest to rid yourself of excess weight.  Scientist believe that fat becomes distressed, scarred and inflamed, it is unable to soak up calories as it should, which experts think makes it harder to slim down. 1 in 3 Americans are considered obese, or a BMI over 30 and while it may seem simple to stick to a strict diet and exercise program.  Analysis of the fat cells in obese bodies found they are starved of oxygen, which triggers inflammation in the fat tissue. Stressed and unhealthy fat tissue is less able to absorb the extra calories from the food we eat, which are diverted into fat wrapping around vital organs including the liver, muscle and heart. It can lead to obesity-related health complications such as fatty liver disease and cardiovascular disease. It can also make people ‘apple-shaped’, with a large tummy and more fat within the deeper layers of the abdomen and around the organs. Si ti is extremely important to talk with your doctor if you are overweight or obese to work on a fitness plan that will help you lose weight and protect your vital organs from damage. It also serves as a warning for those that are heading towards a BMI of over 30 that not only will it be even harder to lose weight but your health may be permanently damaged.
