AMoonHawk saidright now he's smacking down on a donut .... junk food is addicting .... that and the factor that he is getting older .... he'll never be able to get back to his previous build because he has stretched his skin out and fat cells have a memory. I bet he has to go in a get lipo if he wants to look like he did before.
LOL, this isn't accurate.
It's actually semi-accurate and not too farfetched. Getting fat means both an increase in the number of fat cells and those fat cells "filling up" with fat. When you lose weight, you "deflate" your fat cells of their fat content, but the extra fat cells themselves don't go away. What you're left with is a bunch of empty fat cells just waiting to fill themselves up again with fat.
If you've gained enough weight, there's a good chance that the extra fat tissue that you gained won't allow you to completely return to a shredded physique unless the fat tissue is surgically removed (ie liposuction) and/or your skin hasn't been stretched too much. Judging from his Nov 5 picture, he may be at or near that point where diet and exercise alone won't allow him to completely return to his former physique (at least with regard to his abs).
lol, nah, it's not accurate. Fat cell theory is a debunked 30 year old idea that states that fat cells are predetermined at puberty and can only divide from there and not reduce in numbers. However, there is evidence in the medical literature that many factors produced by other cells cause the morphology of fat to change with changes in metabolism and can lead to apoptosis (cell death) of adipose (fat) tissue. If you don't believe me, do a pubmed search.
Just to put my opinion in context, I have some experience in the field of cell differentiation and dedifferentiation as I did my postdoctorate study at one of the most well-known labs in tissue engineering in the country. Also, my current work is in the plastic surgery arena so I have spoken to many many of the global thought leaders in this field about this very issue.
Oh, and his skin is not stretched to the point where it wont rebound, not at his age.
