Scientists develop new weight loss method
Scientists in the US have been developing a new process that will help people to lose weight fast.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine researchers managed to reduce the calorie intake and weight of animal models.
Also, they transformed the animal's fat into a type that burns off more energy.
This was achieved by knocking down the expression of a protein in the brains of rats that is known to stimulate eating.
"If we could get the human body to turn 'bad fat' into 'good fat' that burns calories instead of storing them, we could add a serious new tool to tackle the obesity epidemic," said study leader Dr Sheng Bi, an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioural sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Last month, researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School found that excess fat in the liver can be reduced most quickly by sticking to a low-carbohydrate diet, rather than a low-calorie one.
