There is more than one type of fat in the body. The types of fats are classified as normal and abnormal. The fats that are burned during exercise are the triglycerides in the blood and the normal fat stores. Abnormal fat stores are inaccessible to the normal metabolism.
In the human body there are three types of fat. One of these types is structural fat. Structural Fat is needed to support and protect vital organs also known as subcutaneous tissue. Second we have “normal” fat stores. These stores are a healthy form of necessary stored energy. Last we find visceral or “abnormal” fat stores. Visceral fat stores are not needed. They are caused by eating highly processed food and can cause many health complications. If the “normal fat stores are getting too many deposits without enough withdrawals then the body starts to put those stores in the “abnormal” fat bank.
Processed fats and sugars dramatically affect our metabolic processes acting as a catalyst to the production of abnormal fat stores. Once the body is forced to create the “abnormal” fat bank it will keep the “normal stores low and put most excess calories into the inaccessible “abnormal” fat stores. When starving the body the “abnormal” fat will NOT be accessed until all of the “normal” and structural fat is depleted. This would be VERY unhealthy and dangerous.
HCG hormone therapy releases the “abnormal” fat cells, making them available for energy. This can be helpful but is unnatural and may have bad side effects. I believe it is much better to just stop eating any processed food or refined sugar. By this I do not mean avoid fat. Monounsaturated fat will help break down the abnormal fat stores and help restore the metabolic system. Do this along with light cardio vascular exercise for one hour per day. The exercise I refer to can never be too light. Any speed necessary to allow you to keep your heart rate elevated for 1 hour is acceptable (as explained in the “Exercise: How Do You Make it Count?” article).
