Fat is necessary for survival. Women tend to accumulate fat in their hips, buttocks and thighs and men tend to accumulate it in their abdomen.
Fat is stored in special fat cells called adipocytes located all over the body.
Adipocytes get large by feeding them. If you eat more calories than you burn, some of the excess carbohydrates will be stored as sugar, or glucose–called glycogen–in the muscles, and the rest of the excess will be stored as fat in the fat cells.
Aerobic exercise stimulates the adipocytes to release lots of fat. That fat will be burned by the muscles during exercise, and if not, it returns to the adipocytes for storage.
Bottom Line: Do aerobic exercises.
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55:22.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
If we call ourselves followers of Christ we don’t have to live with stress. Stress is the result of thinking a fear-based thought for an extended period of time.
Stress is a choice. You can choose what you want to think about. Paul instructed us in 2 Corinthians 10:5 to take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Exercise of the Week: When a thought comes into your mind that is contrary to the truth, do not meditate on it but smother it with a truth from God’s Word.
