I must have extra fat receptor cells :)You probably do, TB.Anyone who's been significantly overweight for a significant amount of time has more fat cells than someone who's always been lean.The thinking used to be that new adipocytes were only laid down during childhood but anyone can grow new ones at any time in their life if they overeat consistently. One of the lecturers at a course I took a few years ago used the analogy of putting more and more stuff in your garage until it's full and then building more and more garages to house more and more "stuff". Problem is, fat cells aren't inert like your garage(s) They don't disapper as you slim down but respond to being "emptied" by pumping out all sort of adipokines, peptides, hormones and whatnot that, not only scream "feed me!!!", but can serve to regulate fat deposition independantly of insulin.
