1) white adipose tissue (WAT) and
2) brown adipose tissue (BAT)
BAT improves your body's ability to handle blood sugar, increases bone health and density, helps build lead muscle mass, increases longevity, and helps you burn WAT (the normal fat stores in your body that makes you look fat) more efficiently.
The problems with BAT are:
1) adult humans do not have much of it but babies have a lot, and
2) BAT only works when it is activated
Now, according to groundbreaking research conducted at the University of Nottingham, drinking coffee (but not water) stimulates BAT.In other words,coffee literally helps to burn fat.
