Brown Fat can help you lose weight

10 04 2009

A new study, published by the Arizona Republic yesterday descibed how a certain type of fat located in the neck and under the collar bone, called brown fat,  can help you lose weight by speeding up your metabolism.   Apparently it’s been there since we were born, but its hard to make use of it.  Researchers are studying to find ways to turn this fat into a pill to help overweight and obese people lose weight.  Exercise in a pill, if it speeds up metabolism.  Who knew we could have “healthy” body fat in us?

I saw this on the new last week… I hope they come out with it soon, however it’s still in the testing phase which could take like 7 years and then they do more tests and blah blah blah…
