Breaking Down Fat
Did you know that fat isn't inert or dormant? Fat doesn't just sit there on your body. It's an active participant in the "hormonal dance" of your body.
This is just one of the many golden nuggets that Coach Shannon shares with me every week. In fact, fat acts almost like an organ. It actively participates in your body, it secretes chemicals and hormones, and can also increase and exacerbate existing inflammation. That's when I really took notice. As I've written before, I'm trying to heal my body from Crohn's disease, which is an inflammatory bowel disease. So when I heard that particular golden nugget, my ears really perked up.
So in reducing excess fat, I can reduce inflammation. Losing excess fat is a way to heal. I really like the sound of that.
