Since i have not been accepted to the Pound as of yet, wanted to address this issue here…
Jay, was reading the Pound board and saw your comment regarding Alessi’s theory that fat placement tells you alot about your metabolism.
If iliac fat is associated with insulin resistance then,
this the last fat to go on most of us? (would suggest some other factor)
- We know that leptin is the key player in subcutaneous fat and this is what we are measuring when we do calipers…research has documented that insulin resistance is more associated with the visceral fat…
3)…what are peoples’ opinions on this matter…i did not see any credible info in alessi’s article/statement…it would make sense that if iliac fat is the last to go (lower abs) in the majority of us…then another factor besides insulin resistance is at play…(my opinion estrogen)
