This week on Two Knit Monkeys Vol. 3

Meet the dreaded fat cell.  He may be cute but he is a dangerous fellow.  Did you know that the average human body has 40 billion of these little guys who just want to make you fat.
While fat cells have their benefits such as keep you warm, help transport Vitamins A, D, E and K throughout your body and they can keep you alive for months if the need ever arose.  Check out the Fat head on Dr. G!
Professor B wants to make sure you know that it takes 3,500 calories to make one pound of fat.  That may sound like a lot, but if you over eat by just 5% you can put on a pound a month.  Now that is a lot of fat to chew on!
The good news it that if you consume just a little less than you need, those missing calories add up too and your little fat cells will be happy to slim down to provide them.  Even better if you can stomach some exercise you can burn up to ten of these puppies in one minute!  That is some statistic!

While you may want to lose a few of these guys (we all do) just cut a few of them out of your diet, exercise a bit more and they will be eager to leave.   Even if they are incredibly cute, sometimes you gotta get rid of them.

Remember to check out ThinkGeek.com  and check out some microbes of your own!
