    and that when you get fat, it's the cells you have getting larger. She said you were born with the same amount of fat cells you'll ever have. Now even with our book saying otherwise , she refused to believe it and says she learned all of this in her Animal Science class.



    I wanted to punch a hoe.

    tell her she just has it backwards, you can't destroy fat cells, only shrink them. then maybe she'll acquiesce to your genius.

    You know, atleast she knows something about something, and perhaps to some extent she is is right, one could simply get 'fat' without fat cell mitosis, obesity is a different

    No you definitely can get new fat cells and research is starting to show that you can grow new muscle fiber as well. I believe the administering of IGF-1 has been shown to cause hyperplasia, actually.

    you are born with a certain number of fat cells and yes, they do get larger, causing one to become "fat"

    fat cells do expand as you store fat, but only to a certain point... eventually they get too full, and your body makes new fat cells to handle additional storage.

    I believe hyperplasia has only been proven in some studies in rats, and never in humans.

    Any study involving igf, hgh, aas is null and void in my opinion.

    As for fat cells, I believe your body can produce more

    You do create new fat cells, but not necessarily at a rate constant to fat storage increases. At the same time, fat cells may undergo apoptosis, but not due to decreases in fat stores which only shrinks the cells.

    I'm not copy & pasting an entire thread... it takes all of two minutes to register, and there is a ton of very good information on Lyle's forum.
