The Diabetes Debate: Belly Fat Faceoff (part 5)

Brain: Hey, you, Belly Fat! We’ve got a bone to pick with you.

Belly Fat: You talking to me?

Kidney 1: You’re to blame for our diabetes.

Pancreas: I told you it’s not my fault.

Belly Fat: You gals are, like, rude.

diabetes debate 13Brain: Belly, what is this stuff?

Belly Fat: What, you don’t like tripping on acid?

Katie: Tripping over acid is more like it. Are these fatty acids? They’re all over the place.

Belly Fat: Whatever. Cleaning is lame.

Kidney 1: They’re messing with the insulin, Belly. Stop making them!

Brain: Belly, Liver’s cells are stuffed to the gills with those fatty acids.

Kidney 1: Blood’s full of them too.

Brain: She’s inflamed and we need her to regulate all kinds of stuff.

Belly Fat: This is, like, totally unfair. I didn’t do anything to Liver.

Brain: You’ve got her completely surrounded! Insulin can barely get through and when it does, Liver can’t respond normally because you’re smothering her in a chronic squishy fatty hug!

diabetes debate 14Kidney 1: We need Liver to help suck up the extra glucose from the blood. Let her go.

Belly Fat: Like, whatever. You’re a nerd and you’re a gross pee factory. Don’t even talk to me.

Katie: Belly, they have a point, actually. Studies show that if you’re overweight or obese, you’re 90 time more likely to develop type two diabetes.

Belly Fat: There’s fat all over this Body. Why pick on me?

Katie: You’re the only fat blocking access to the organs. If you were on the thighs or jiggling under the biceps, it’d be better.

Belly Fat: What a bunch of losers! I’m not changing for anybody.

Brain: I order you to leave!

Belly Fat: Not going to happen!

Brain: I’m going to order more vegetables, I’m going to go to bed early—

diabetes debate 15Katie: Actually, Muscle is the only one who can help. Diet can help you lose weight, but exercise is the only thing that removes visceral fat like Belly, here.

Brain: Muscle, you’re going to get your thirty minutes a day. Maybe more. I want this Belly out of here!

Muscle: Nice! I’m stoked, dude.

Belly Fat: Whatever, nerd.

Katie: Bladder’s full again, so we’ll be right back. Stay tuned for our final interview with the one, the only, the soon to be empty, Bladder.
