Major Breakthrough in Weight Loss Theories

Submitted by on May 11, 2012 – 12:00 amNo Comment

There are major breakthroughs in the world regarding weight loss recently. A new research propagates the brown fat theory that may give the scientists a great weight loss program to adopt. In mice, brown fat is a tissue that burns a lot of fat and then creates a lot of weight loss. Till recently the scientists were not aware if the adult humans also have this fat. It is also not known if the mice and the humans behave the same way. There is a small study that has more new evidence for the brown fat helping in weight loss.

Brown adipose tissue is that kind of fat that is entirely fat that is totally brown in colour. This is a tissue that has more mitochondria that has standard white fat that is darker. Mitochondria are those regions in the body that have a great energy production. Unlike the white fat mitochondria, the brown fat mitochondria use fat for energy and also help in burning out more quantities than other tissues.

In mice there are studies that prove that there is an increase in the brown fat infl ced weight loss as this is a tissue that is burned more than other fat and also reduces more calories. There are two things that have created a lot of increase in the brown fat in mice and these are exposure to cold air and exercise.

This new finding that brown fat is found in the adult men show that when men are exposed to cold air, they show the same brown fat burning that was seen in the mice. Researchers are still to investigate the brown fat principle in the human beings. Scientists also do not know if an increase in exercise would cause the BAT to increase in humans like it does in mice.

It is also a fact that pure exposure to cold air is not going to increase the brown fat metabolism and so the brown fat theory has to be taken care of well. Many of us have seen that even after working out and having nutritious meals and eating well, there is some reason why the weight is not coming done. So the best part is to mix up the regimen with a corresponding diet. A good workout plan and a meal schedule could lead to weight loss but after sometime it might be necessary to increase the workout game. There are many things that you could do to get over the hurdle of weight loss and so just make sure you get the facts right and work your way towards losing weight.

The human body is conditioned to the actual workout that it has been getting so ensure that you step up the workout well. If you are working out around thrice a week, then increase the time and the regimen and also add a day more. Also make sure you exercise a little more and see the difference.

There are many who work out early in the morning. So increasing the work out time would surely give great benefits. So work out in the morning and then in the evening too. This would surely make a difference. So stepping up this work regimen is very important and crucial so that one doesnt get discouraged or bored following a particular regimen.

If you are a person who does a high impact cardiovascular workout then make sure to also include a spinning class? If you jog, then also try to do yoga. The body would respond in a different manner as energy is being shown in a different way. So this would be a great way to start burning fat once more. There are many ways that you can use to include dance and a workout so belly dancing, line dancing and Zumba are such dance forms which also have a workout schedule in their steps. If you don’t like dancing then try the treadmill, bike and the elliptical. Also include strength training, weight lifting which are seen to produce a lot of results.

There are many experts who have seen that every pound of muscle burns around 35 calories a day. Strength training also helps to increase the burn so make sure that your body burns more calories many hours after you finish the workout.

So if you wanted to have know-how of weight loss understand how best you could change your weight loss pattern.
