Can the right body fat help you get lean? It sounds crazy… But new research shows how you can turn disease-causing fat into this metabolism-boosting kind.

Brown adipose tissue (BAT) or brown fat. You’re born with a good amount of it. It keeps us warm as infants. But we lose BAT as we age. This helpful fat is stored in smaller droplets than WAT… So it doesn’t have the same bulky appearance. In fact, it deposits in the areas of your body that don’t tend to look fat… Like your neck and shoulders.

Big Food’s Favorite “Healthy” Fat Is Giving You Diabetes

This “healthy” oil is in everything from frozen meals to salad dressings. But research shows it may be putting you at risk for diabetes, weight gain, and worse.
