Distribution of Fat
"^^ATURE meant that we
-k ^ should have a certain
amount of fat in and about the
body. Inside, the fat forms a
cushion for supporting organs,
a partial covering for the
nerves; in the skin fat helps
ami forms cushions for important
Thus, a certain amount of fat is a
sign of health, ami only in rare In
stances is fat accumulated during
illness. However, when too much
fat Is formed inside and outside the
body, while still a sign of health, it
can gradually interfere with the
workings of the body—heart, liver,
kidneys—with the result that over
weights nre considered poor risks
by life insurance companies, and
also in cases where a surgical oper
ation Is found necessary.
Sometimes an individual who has
always been underweight, skinny,
suddenly begins to
put on weight, and
within the space of
a year or two has
gone from 125
pounds up to 225
pounds. The ex
planation In some
cases is change in

living with no de
sire for changes
or advancement, stopping all forms
of athletics or exercises. In other
cases examined it would appear
that some glandular change has
taken place in the body whereby,
despite eating the same amount of
food (or perhaps eating less), a
smaller amount of food seems to be
needed for the work of the body,
and more is thus stored away ns fat.
When this Increase in fat occurs
within a short time, and over the en
tire body, it is thought that it is
the thyroid gland In the neck that
is at fault in that It is not supply
ing enough of its Juice—thyroid
juice—to the blood. As this juice
Increases the action of all the proc
esses of the body, increasing neat
and burning up foodstuffs, any lack
of it means that the processes will
act more slowly, there will be less
heat, less food burned and more

It Is in these enses that over
weights are Justified in consulting
their family physician regarding the
use of thyroid extract In their par
ticular cases. Under proper super
vision and with proper dosage
excellent results are obtained in
these cases when the overweight is
definitely due to lack of thyroid
There is, however, another form
of overweight due to lack of gland
nctivity which, while Interesting to
physicians, is embarrassing to those
afflicted. In this type of overweight
the excess weight is in certain
places in the body and not In other,
which distinguishes it from the type
due to lack of thyroid juice. Thus
the excess fat Is found across the
shoulders, breasts, abdomen, hips,
upper arms, and upper part of the
legs. The hands, wrists, forearms,
feet, ankles, ami lower legs are
quite small and free from fat; in
fact these individuals are quite
proud of their ankles and legs. A
little gland—the pituitary—lying In
the groove at the base of the brain—
is responsible for tills overweight.
Now Just ns thyroid extrnct helps

There are cases where the vari
ous glands of the body are not work
ing well, or working properly with
other glands so as to obtain a prop
er balance. In these cases the use
of both thyroid extract and pitub
tary extrnct brings good results.

Water and Weight
A world-famous athlete stopped
his athletic activities and gradually
accumulated a considerable amount
of excess weight. lie took a little
exercise but finding that there was
no loss of weight, decided to go for
an hour’s work in the gymnasium.
Sure enougli as he weighed him
self before exercise and after, the
first day there was a loss of three to
four pounds. When he returned the
next day his weight was the same
as before the exercise of the first
day, but again he took off three to
four pounds by the exercise.
This failure to lose weight was
easily explained when it was found
that after the exercise, immediately
after returning home and during the
night (he kept a pitcher of water
by his bedside) he was in the habit
of drinking from one to two quarts
of water—perhaps a gallon and a
half from six o’clock at night until
six o’clock the next morning.
It is known that fat tissue is able
to hold more water than other tis- -
sues of the body; one pound of fat
will hold over three pounds of wa
ter, so that the loss of a pound of
actual fat might mean the loss of
four pounds of weight.
