How is a fat cell created?

I saw where fat cells cant be destroyed once they are created. How are they created?

In: Biology

As far as I know they’re always there, they just change size depending on how many doubles doubles I consume

Adipocytes are created same as any other cell, from mother cells (pluripotent stem cells) and based on some chemical signals they evolve towards a type or cell or another. They can be in fact destroyed but not how you think. I will need to explain to a level a bit above ELI5😅
