It accumulates in the following manner: in some places the connective tissue cells are filled with fatty substances. First appearing tiny droplets inside the cell. These droplets are increased by volume, combine into big drop and finally fulfill the entire cell. Finally, the cell turns into a big drop of fat surrounded by a thin membrane.

Women have more fat
Fat cells generate only some parts of the body. Ears, nose, forehead and around the joints normally do not have fat. As a rule, the woman’s body accumulates more fat than the body of a man. For example, a normal body of a man contains about 10 percent fat, while a normal woman’s body is about 25 percent. This means that a young man can have about 7 pounds of body fat in his body, a young woman about 17 pounds!

Normal daily fuel that we consume is actually sugar. The body easily burns sugarwhile fat burning is a complex process. But fat has twice the calorific value of the sugar, and are therefore particularly suitable as a reserve food in the body.

These “pillows” of fat are in the buttocks area, so that we can sit comfortably, then under the arch of the foot, under the skin of the palm, on the cheeks and in cushions on which lay our eyeballs. The third role of adipose tissue is that the human body protects against excessive heat loss.
