Fat

15 posts in this topic

Watching a programme about a guy who is going to have lipo to remove sub-cutaneous fat. Question then - is this the same fat that is laid down when you eat too many pies (as well as visceral fat)? I thought I'd read somewhere that the sub-c fat was something you wouldn't ever put back and wasn't the same fat you put down through eating pies.

Sub-c (I can't spell it) is just the layer under the skin that everyone has and is good for you, really. It's the visceral fat that makes you die and excess body fat (beer gut etc) that makes you look like you own a pie factory. But I think the excess fat still kinda counts as sub-c because it's under your skin.

It wouldn't surprise me if they got mixed up on the telly and said sub-c fat to sound all-knowing.

True fact: Women naturally carry a thicker layer of sub-c fat than men. I think that you can lose/ regain this fat. The human body is amazing at doing what it needs to survive.

I guess all fat is sub cutaneous really - i.e. under the skin! It was interesting though - the bloke went from a bit of a beer belly (and I mean only a bit) to having a 6 pack. No idea how much it cost him and it looked like a brutal operation but I was impressed. Not as impressed as I would have been if he had done it naturally though!

The Visceral stuff is the one that surrounds your organs, and even though some people might look thin, they can be hiding lots and lots of the visceral fat. It makes your organs warmer - sometimes makes them too hot, as it insulates them.

Not sure how it can be lost, but keyhole surgery is great at cutting it and pulling it all out.

Eitherway, you need a change in attitude to stop them both from returning.

edit to add - isn't suet made from this?

I wonder how quickly that will come back though. If you haven't worked hard to get the 6-pack, how hard will you work to keep them?

Louie Theroux had lypo on TV once. It was very simple looking, but brutal, like you say.

Like that tall lanky streak needed lypo. :roflmao:. I bet they only removed a few grams! (I know, it was for TV blah, blah, blah) :grin:

Having seen it on TV, it is very brutal! Speaking of such, watching hip and knee replacements - WOW!!! :eek:

He was doing a show about whether people in America who have all this surgery get any happier from it. Obviously he found a bunch of crackpots that needed some serious therapy but decided to get giant boobs/ lypo/ face-lifts etc. instead.

Jesus - watching embarrassing fat bodies and some of these guys are really, errr, fat. Feeling particularly smug after a 45 min interval running session at the gym.

Big lass just got on the scales - 212kg!

Its good that these programmes are on TV though. It highlights the need for people to change (or keep up your fitness). For too long we've sat back and watched the nation grow into a copy of the USA. We all like a beer and a full English but the older you get the harder it is to get it off and keep it off. I force myself to run twice a week and do a 15-22 mtb ride depending on conditions. The mtb is hard but massive fun. The runs are a real challenge but feels great after its finished. My main motivation is keeping healthy for my kids. I want to be fit and able for as long as I can.

So, keep the fat tv coming!

Have you ever heard about pressure therapy? My friends told me it could help with weight loss and fat fight...

Do you mean having a fat person lie on you?

My trainer wants me to put on some fat to help gain some size - currently at 10.2%. 

I'll be asking Garcon for diet tips ;)
