Extra food is stored as visceral fat, muscle mass, or adipose tissue?

Follow the arrow down to discover the correct word.

Love handle is a term for extra flesh on the hips,
But anywhere on the body if you’ll find a place to grip.
There’ll be pads of fat in places you’d wish there would never be,
When you eat more food than needed for your level of energy.

It sure cushioned the fall when I tripped.

If you selected adipose tissue, you’re right!  Adipose tissue or fat is a term for loose connective tissue that’s role is to store energy and it also cushions and insulates the body.
