Our Natural Ability to Store Fat

Although obesity is the result of too much fat accumulating in the body, you should not give too much offense to it. Human beings have always battled hunger in its history. Even now people are battling hunger.

Our bodies were designed to survive during a shortage of food by minimizing the amount of food needed in order to cope with starvation. The body stores the food as fat in order to prepare it for periods of food shortage.

In short, gaining fat was essential to surviving hardships during human history. However, in present, wealthy countries where people can eat anything anytime, this ability works negatively.

Eating whenever we want, or eating too much leads us to obesity.

Fat is not a bad thing but if it exceeds a healthy amount, it will cause a burden to our health.
