White adipose tissue (WAT) is stored in the body to be used as energy (midsection, thighs, etc). The only way it is used for energy is if there is no or not enough energy (glycogen) stored in the liver, thus stimulating the ACTH, adrenaline, cortisol, etc > gluconeogenesis > the stress response. What if you could eat, live and breath in a way that increased the amount of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in the body, which increases the amount of mitochondria (energy producing parts of the cell), which increases the amount of thyroid hormone and overall energy production…and, the BAT begins to “eat” the WAT for energy.
How we breathe at the cellular level from the foods we eat, but also how we breath at the ventilation level dictates our ratio of brown to white fat. Its your choice!
Brown fat: warms the body, burns glucose for energy, products heat, eats white fat
White fat: stores energy, produced more by estrogen, people who are overweight produce more white fat.
