20 Facts About Obesity

10. Fat Cells Reign in Obesity.

One of the most devastating issues in obesity is that fat cells are the issue. Of course, fat cells make up the body fat and when you are obese, you typically have more fat cells than if you weren’t obese. Fat cells expand as you start to gain weight and once these cells get big they divide and multiply to allow for more storage. So if you want to lose weight you will need to shrink your fat cells because you cannot decrease the number that you carry on your body (this is only done by physically removing them, but more on this ahead).
