'Exercise pill' tricks body into burning twice the fat - The Independent
There's never any shortage of misguided gulls seeking to pour even more pharmaceutical junk down the throats of innocent people...)o:
Now HERE is news of a fully researched (i.e. on people, not rodents), completely safe way for an obese/overweight person to get rid of some excess fat from the body - Some quite recent Danish research shows that eating extra dairy calcium, as in low fat yoghurt, increases, in a perfectly natural and safe, healthy way, the amount of fat lost in the faeces. It was shown on a BBC2 programme some weeks ago. - BBC2 The Truth About Food: calcium helps weight loss - Maybe you should copy the whole page in case it ever disappears from the BBC's website. - Note: it does not require you to eat less or reduce calorie intake - only to eat MORE calcium. - If you do try the low fat yoghurt, make sure it's the ordinary low fat yoghurt, not the extremely low fat stuff,, 'cos that's always crammed with dodgy chemicals...)o:
And here is an extract from today's article about another wretched drug being developed:
"American scientists have discovered an "exercise pill" that switches on a gene that tells cells to burn fat.
The un-named drug, which is in the early stages of development, could offer an answer to the obesity crisis. Researchers who have tested it in mice say that it prevented the mice putting on weight even when they were fed a high-fat diet. The drug triggers the same fat burning process that occurs during exercise, even when the mice are not active. By kickstarting the metabolism, more calories are burnt than are consumed.
Ronald Evans, a researcher at the Salk Institute in California said he hoped that such "metabolic trickery" would lead to new treatments for human metabolic syndrome, a condition marked by obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol which raises the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
He presented his findings to a conference of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Washington, yesterday."
But remember, the easiest, safest and fastest way to reduce excess weight is to eat less salt and eat plenty of fruit and fresh vegetables. - This removes some excess water from the blood stream and also reduces the amount of excess stored fat that sometimes accompanies fluid retention.
Lose weight by eating less salt! Go on! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
