There are Four main fat types:
Viscera (Behind the abs and around vital organs)
1) Very firm fat compared to subcutaneous fat (Holds its shape) as seen in food courts everywhere.
2) This type of fat is more affected by aerobic exercise than diet.
3) Men have more visceral fat than a woman, this type of fat also comes off fairly easy and is the reason men seem to lose weight faster than woman.
4) Viscera fat accumulation causes insulin resistance.
5) Visceral fat does not stop releasing fatty acids in the presence of insulin, like subcutaneous fat.
6) Visceral fat has better blood circulation, to transport fat energy to other body tissues when needed.
7) Exercise more than diet gets rid of this type of fat more effectively.
8) Because men carry more visceral fat, is why they are more at risk for heart attacks than women. Subcutaneous (Just under the skin)(Avita’s target)
1) This Includes both Superficial Adipose Tissue (SAT) and Deep Adipose Tissue (DAT). This is the fat that jiggles when you bounce.
2) 40‐60% of total body fat is found here.
3) Men store it on most commonly on their midsection and upper back.
4) Women typically store it on their hips and thighs. (The most stubborn type of fat)
5) Women store more of this type of fat than men.
FYI‐ Subcutaneous fat isn’t all the same. Hip and thigh fat is metabolically different than abdominal fat, plus hip and thigh fat is the hardest of all to get rid of.
These two types are not the Avita treatment target.
Essential body fat – cushioning for your organs and as a sheath cover for your nerves and brain.
Brown adipose tissue – main function is to produce heat.
