. Sally has been told that she most likely has gained weight from having a higher percentage of white adipose
tissue, due to inefficient uncoupling proteins. What would you tell her?
a. White adipose tissue releases heat and burns fat, so that is not a reason to gain weight
b. It is her lack of sleep that is increasing her white adipose tissue; better sleep would decrease white
c. Exercise would be beneficial to help produce a "browning" effect on white adipose tissue by producing
fat cells known as "brite adipocytes", therefore decreasing white adipose tissue percentage.
d. Drinking large amounts of coffee would decrease white adipose tissue percentage.
