Something that reduces appetite and helps one feel full isn't new (even though the approach is)... what stands out to me with this is that they say
a high fat/sugar diet does NOT result in weight gain.
It seem obvious that some people can eat more than others without the same weight gain. I know I have to really watch what I eat to keep my weight
healthy, but my husband can eat pretty much anything he wants and not gain weight (although he does have high cholesterol now - weight gain isn't the
only potential side effect of a poor diet).
It's temping to think that some pill could allow me to eat a pint of Ben and Jerry's every night and stay slim (which is not what the drug would be
designed for, obviously), but I don't think I'd take it anyway, if such a pill existed. Anytime you mess with the brain, you are playing with fire.
It's amazing how much we don't know about our own brains.
You are right that this could help people with rare conditions that are linked to obesity, like Prader-Willi or Cushing's Disease.
Very interesting and thanks for sharing.
