    Feeling fat deposits in my stomach?

    Hey guys / gals

    See if you can help me please. I am not an obese guy. About 5' 9" 169 Ibs 35 years old. I am fairly slender with slight love handles and maybe a few inches that I can pinch in the abdominal section. Have had this about 15 years now. However, since I have been on a high protein diet (lots of high protein foods and high protein shakes X 2 months) I have started to put on some muscle, and my waste line is starting to slinder a bit. BUT, when I pinch up my fatty area in my waste line around my belly button, I am starting to feel some weird lumps. Not sure how to explain this. But when I pinch up the skin it feels like there are a few things inside the skin. Its like this all through my wastline area. Do you think this is fat deposits trying to break loose?

    Anyone that was very heavy that lost a bunch of weight care to answer this? Did this happen to you? Should I be excited that I can now feel this? Not sure if this is a good sign or I might just be imagining this LOL.

    The slight lumps that I feel are not hard. Just ... well.. lumpy.

    Thanks for the answers.

    Pretty normal. I dropped from ~20% to upper 12% body fat in the last 4 months and I have the same thing. When I pinch the skin it you can feel fat nodules. I dont know that it is good or bad for sure, but I have heard some saying it is a sign your body is breaking down the fat. However, I dont know this is actually true.

    I think everyone with a sufficient layer of fat has these. I think what you're feeling is the supportive connective tissue of the fat. Some people might call it cellulite.

    The good news is that this stuff also seems to go away with fat loss.

    Don't pinch too much or you will bruise :P!!!
    Last time I cut I had a lot of these at the end of my cut on my abs. Not sure if they are nodes of fat or what. They will bruise if you play with them too much.

    Ok, just an update on my fat deposit looking nodule progress

    I think my calculations are correct. Thats what I was indeed feeling were fat deposits. I can see my top two abs now and their is still an inch of fat covering my lower set of abs around belly button. When I press down on my fat area I can literally see the deposits in my skin. Weird? I am getting excited! First time in my life that I can see a great change now. I am now gaining muscle lines in my abdominal cavity and loosing fat lines where my belly use to hang over. Its now a flat type of fat. Does that make since? Anyways, If any of you ever feel the lumps where you didn't feel it before. This is indeed a good thing!

    Yep very normal from my understanding quest. I can still feel them with my fingers when I pinch. The weirdest looking part of it all is the tiny bulges (almost like bbs) when I press my fat down.

    I was considering purchasing Scivations Sesamin. I researched this product alot and was wanting to get some opinions. Do any of you think that this product will help mobilize these fat deposits a little faster?

    Wow

    Took me a long time to find someone on the internet talking about this stuff and seeing it as a positive! I myself have lost a lot of weight, over 50lbs in about 2 years. I also put on that weight in the span of a few months before that. Needless to say my body was pissed at me but we're all good now I have stretch marks (anything around to help with those?) and the lumps you guys are speaking of. Has anyone noticed the actual lumps disappearing? I have one in the shoulder that is messing with my mobility, and one in the belly button that seemed to have popped, or something. It feels very strange and I'm hoping it goes away...

    Thanks guys and I'm happy to be joining your forum!

    Strange to have them "messing" with your mobility. If you can, have a doctor check them out. It's worth the $20 co-pay for peace-o-mind.

    Angry I can relate, playing with them?

    I've been searching non-stop trying to find out what these notches are. At first, I thought that perhaps, they were knots and tried to massage them, pushing them in circular motions. I did lose weight fairly quick as i was on an antidepressant that had me gain a lot of weight, i've switched and i'm going on 5 months now and i've gone done from 167 to 135. Anyways, I did notice them bruising my abdominal area since i've been playing with them, does this loosen them or something? I feel as though I have fewer every day and I just absolutely love playing with them :/ is this bad? should i not touch them?

    Edit**
    If i put those creams that are marketed for slimming on top of them will the heat help them "dissolve" faster?

BUT, when I pinch up my fatty area in my waste line around my belly button, I am starting to feel some weird lumps. Not sure how to explain this. But when I pinch up the skin it feels like there are a few things inside the skin. Its like this all through my wastline area. Do you think this is fat deposits trying to break loose?

    Anyone that was very heavy that lost a bunch of weight care to answer this? Did this happen to you? Should I be excited that I can now feel this? Not sure if this is a good sign or I might just be imagining this LOL.

    The slight lumps that I feel are not hard. Just ... well.. lumpy.

    Thanks for the answers.
    Fat doesn't "break loose" as you get leaner the adipose tissue is less compact so you can pinch the skin and feel little nodules.

    Think i recall reading something by Lyle Mcdonald about feeling fatty lumps under the skin but thought that was when about 10% BF and about stubborn fat. May be something to look into though, you may find your answer explained better there. Good work though. Keep it up :0)

    I believe with an article with Lyle mc Donald it referred to "squishy fat" which I also have on my lower belly kinda feels like marbles within the fat and also feels way different to touch compared to other fat.


    I believe in the article it referes to fat that is ready to go. Squishy fat being a sign the fat is ready to go then "woosh" and it's gone.

    I would check out the article my Lyle mc Donald

    I have one

    I have one, actually saw a doctor about it as it was quite painful. Just a fat deposit, I was also playing with it and it was causing bruising. You're not supposed to touch it, it won't help it go away.

    That region is prone to abdominal hernias as well, which are more problematic. Those aren't supposed to happen while you're young though, more 40-50 year old problem I was told...

    Hello,

    I've just registered for this site explicitly to post on this topic. I too have all these tiny little bb sized lumps all around my abdomen and sides. I too, like one of the earlier posters, was on an antidepressant for a very long time which caused weight gain (which I'm now off). I also for other reasons gained a significant amount of additional weight in a short period of time and then lost it. I've lost around 16-18KG in the last two years. (I'm now at around 58KG, my height is 168cm). It's only in the last few months when I started noticing these little lumps. For various reasons I've also recently had a PET-CT scan in relation to something else unrelated to this. If these little lumps were cancerous it would have been flagged by the PET-CT scan. So, I am very glad to hear 1) others have this; 2) everyone seems to agree it's just fat deposits; 3) Seems to be more present in people who have gained/lost weight quickly; 4) It should eventually disappear.

    You have to understand fat cells

However, since I have been on a high protein diet (lots of high protein foods and high protein shakes X 2 months) I have started to put on some muscle, and my waste line is starting to slinder a bit. BUT, when I pinch up my fatty area in my waste line around my belly button, I am starting to feel some weird lumps. Not sure how to explain this. But when I pinch up the skin it feels like there are a few things inside the skin. Its like this all through my wastline area. Do you think this is fat deposits trying to break loose?

    Anyone that was very heavy that lost a bunch of weight care to answer this? Did this happen to you? Should I be excited that I can now feel this? Not sure if this is a good sign or I might just be imagining this LOL.

    The slight lumps that I feel are not hard. Just ... well.. lumpy.

    Thanks for the answers.
    Stubborn fat is a slow-metabolized adipose (fat) tissue. To burn fat, a natural hormonal process has to take place. When a fat-burning process is activated, the adrenal hormones (adrenaline and noradrenaline) bind to special receptors in the fat tissues. There are two major groups of receptors in the fat tissues, alpha and beta. The beta-receptors are the more active ones, which respond to the adrenal hormones. Fat burning occurs when the adrenal hormones activate the beta-receptors in the fat cells. If these receptors are not activated, no fat will burn off.
    Stubborn fat has a lower ratio of beta-receptors to alpha-receptors. As a result, it's metabolized slowly and does not respond to the adrenal hormones. To make matters worse, stubborn fat has more estrogen receptors in the tissues. Estrogen (the female hormone), once bound to the receptors, causes even more fat gain.

    Stubborn fat can be an age-related problem for men. The older a man gets, the more of his testosterone is converted into estrogen – through a process called aromatazing. Thus, the older he gets, the more the aromataze enzyme is active. Fat tissues produce aromataze enzymes and therefore accelerate the aromatazing action, which converts testosterone into estrogen. Women usually suffer from age-related stubborn fat around their hips, thighs, and buttocks. Some women also have stubborn-fat tissues around their upper arms or entire legs. Age-related stubborn fat for women may be the result of hormonal fluctuations or an increase in estrogen receptors in the tissues.

    let's just say that stubborn fat presents three major problems:

    1. It doesn't have a high enough ratio of beta-receptors to alpha-receptors, so doesn't respond to adrenal fat-burning stimulation.

    2. It has more estrogen receptors, which accelerates fat gain.

    3. On top of all this, stubborn fat doesn't have a healthy blood circulation. These slowly metabolized fat tissues have fewer blood vessels than a normal fat tissue, and consequently this fat is slower to metabolize, and therefore more stubborn or difficult to remove. Fat needs to be carried to another cell through the blood stream (poor blood flow to an area means slow fat loss from an area).

    Try to minimize the purchase, consumption, and storage of food, water, and other beverages or liquids that are wrapped or bottled in plastic (particularly soft plastic bottles and containers). If the food or liquid smells like plastic, stay away from it.
    Minimize your alcohol consumption. Excessive alcohol may compromise your liver's ability to break down and detoxify estrogenic derivatives. When not broken down and detoxified, these estrogenic toxins penetrate the blood and cause unpleasant symptoms like bloating, water retention, and stubborn-fat gain.

    Soy flavones contain mild estrogenic properties. Most people are not affected by this mild estrogenic stimulation. Soy flavones bind to the estrogen receptors in the tissues and thus block these receptors from estrodiol, the most potent estrogen hormone. Estrodiol is called the "bad estrogen," because of its occasionally powerful effects on the body, such as bloating, water retention, fat gain, feminization of men, fat under the skin, and stubborn fat gain around the chest and the belly. Soy products are suppose to help but for my self I don't know. I to have lost 50lbs and I still have a fat pad on my belly at weighing only 117lbs now. And damn it YES I work out like a monster so please I'm not looking for advice. I like my routine and it works for me!! When I was heavier I had massive fat balls under my skin and they would burn if I squeezed them. The doctor said I had high cholesterol and I probably had a fatty acid imbalance meaning: I didn't eat enough "GOOD" fat.
    Well I don't have that problem anymore but on my diet, fat-loss approach I fast for a day if my body-fat scale, tape measurements haven't budged for awhile. Please no negative remarks about my choice to fast, it's the only thing that is working to melt this last layer of my onion (belly fat). Most people with negative comments know good damn in well there is nothing wrong with fasting for a day. It's just when they themselves can't do it, then oh gosh it's bad! Anyways people it's NORMAL to feel your fat cells as you lose weight and for people who have looser skin the worse your stomach looks means you just lost weight in that area. Sometimes you can even only lose weight on one side of your stomach but that to will correct it's self. Well, I'm tired of typing, just be patient and those little balls of fat will melt smaller and smaller even though the fat loss could be uneven eventually it WILL even out, I SWEAR !!!!!
