Why Some Obese People Have Healthy Fat Tissue

Obese or overweight people who break down fat at a higher rate were found to be less healthy than those people who store their fat more efficiently. This occurs when the fat breaks down, many fatty acids that are released from the adipose tissue (body fat) get stored somewhere else in the body. Too much accumulation can lead to harmful levels in other tissues and organs and can lead to insulin resistance, a hallmark of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
