Here's a weird one--fat cells talk to nerve cells

I don't think this one helps us one way or the other--but it might explain why some fat is far more stubborn than others--apparently some kinds of fat cells control their own destiny. These were test tube studies, but they found that certain fat cells send a chemical signal to the nerve cells to say, don't burn my fat, eat instead.

They think but haven't proven that fat cells in the abdomen are particularly in control of their own fate since there are so many different nerve endings there. The good news is that some day they may be able to stimulate the "burn the fat in this cell" message, but that's a long way off.

So maybe we should try some biofeedback and tell our abdominal fat cells to "shut up."

I think my fat cells have been talking way too much. Seriously, thanks for this info. It could explain why I have such a horrible time trying to lose weight.

So that is the little voice I hear so often, gabby fat! I am kind of bossy so I guess I can't expect anything different from my Fat Oh for shy fat that would quietly fade away.

I knew it!

I just KNEW that my fat had a mind of its own. Those cells just get up and march in protest against anything healthy! I think mine send "no more veggies" signals to my nerves, as well as "eat more chocolate".

So THAT is the little voice I hear. My guys better shut up. Trish...seriously, you always post the best information. I printed out your info on alternatives to HRT. (I even use your Ovaltine trick for insomnia. Maybe it is the placebo effect, but it works for me!)

Love,
Maggie
