Finally! Some good news for those of us with phat asses. A Harvard Med. study in the journal Cell Metabolism states that subcutaneous fat (ass/thigh fat) was found to have different properies from visceral fat (belly fat). The study found that when researchers transplanted subcutaneous fat to visceral fat areas on mice, the result was a decrease in body weight, fat mass and blood sugar levels. The mice were also able to make better use of insulin produced by the body, to improve the way the body processes and uses sugar.
Perhaps my favorite part of this study is that the findings cast doubt on the dreaded BMI equation, which tells anyone with a frame bigger than a Barbie that they’re overweight.
Now all I need is for science to tell me that cellulite can cure cancer and dry cuticles help you see in the dark and I’m all set.
