Our bodies don't actually store starches such as those found in vegetation but we do store fats in adipose (fatty tissue) cells. The cells can expand indefinitely to contain more and more fat and are found throughout the body- most predominantly under the dermis, and around some major organs i.e. the heart, liver etc.
