Fat is a component of our bodies along with water, muscles, bones and organs. Body fat can be essential such as storage fat that can also protect internal organs from injury. However excess storage fat can be unhealthy especially where it is located around the waist. Body Fat percentage, Waist Circumference and BMI are means to measure excess fat and may be used to address any diet and health issues.
Cellulite can be explained as stubborn fat deposits under the skin in areas like the thighs and buttocks which creates a dimply/lumpy appearance.
