Fat Distribution

I found an interesting picture from Pinterest.  Thanks for pinning this Mary!  I’ve always wondered how fat looks internally especially around the organs.  It makes me want to work out again today.  Yikes!

This body scan shows the fat distribution of a 250 lb woman vs a 120 lb woman. Notice that the internal fat that can’t be seen with the eye is quite different. There is fat around the heart and though out the abdomen. The liver (upper right side of abdomen) is enlarged with fat. This is called “fatty liver” and can cause liver failure. The bones and joints of the legs are showing the effects of the extra weight.
