As Dr. Laurie Goodyear explains, “what we’re showing here is that fat changes dramatically in response to exercise training and is having good metabolic effects.
This is not the fat that’s around your middle, which is bad fat and can lead to diabetes and other insulin resistant conditions.
It’s the fat that’s under the skin, the subcutaneous fat that adapts in a way that appears to be having important metabolic effects.”
Unlike regular white fat, brown fat is metabolically more active and actually helps the body burn more calories.
