The Facts About Fat

Did you know that we have more than one kind of fat in our body? It’s true – subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. You might have heard the words subcutaneous or visceral before, but do you know what they mean or how to distinguish between the two different kinds of fat?

Well, if you don’t know or if you are interested in learning more, then read on because INEVO Contouring has done some very interesting research, and we want to share it with you!

Subcutaneous fat can be defined as the fat you can “see,” which means the fat you can pinch. You might be thinking about the fat around your waist, thighs or love handles, but it’s also the fat on your underarms and even the soles of your feet!

The point is we all have subcutaneous fat all over our bodies, but when there is too much – well, that’s when there is a problem. This kind of fat can cause dimpling and cellulite. It’s the fat that you can pinch, and it’s that stubborn fat that you can’t seem to lose no matter how much you diet and exercise.

Visceral fat, on the other hand, is the dangerous kind of fat that can lead to significant health problems and diseases. You can’t see this fat because it resides around major organs including your heart and liver, which means a person who looks thin may still have too much visceral fat.

Some causes of excess visceral fat are high carb diets and yo-yo dieting. This kind of fat can cause: high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, dementia and high cholesterol.

Enjoy or Avoid: The Thanksgiving Edition

So Thanksgiving is literally just around the corner, and while the holidays are a great time to enjoy good food with family, you still might be wondering what are the healthiest options when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner.

INEVO has compiled a list of foods you can enjoy and foods to avoid, but we want to say this, if there is something you really want to enjoy Thanksgiving day, then allow yourself to splurge. Everyone deserves it, but just remember, everything in moderation! Enjoy and have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy: “White” meat turkey; Avoid: “Dark” meat turkey

  •  3 ounces of “white” turkey breast will save you around 50 calories and 4 grams of fat from its darker counterpart. The white meat turkey has around 115 calories and 7 grams of fat, while the dark meat has around 160 calories and 11 grams of fat.

Enjoy: Green bean casserole; Avoid: Sweet potato casserole

  • Traditional green bean casserole, including the creamy mushroom soup and crispy fried onions is around 161 calories and 9 grams of fat for every 3/4 of a cup, which is a lighter side than sweet potato casserole that has around 285 calories and 5 grams of fat for every 3/4 of a cup. If you can’t say no to the sweet potato casserole, don’t feel too bad. It is still full of good nutrients including beta carotene and vitamin A.

Enjoy: Pumpkin pie; Avoid: Apple pie

  • Pumpkin pie is the better choice with 216 calories and 14 grams of fat per slice (around 1/8 of a 9 inch pie). Apple pie, on the other hand, has 411 calories and 19 grams of fat for the same-size slice.
