Scientists at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston found that if an enzyme called acetyl-CoA carboxylase 2, or ACC2, is blocked in mice, the animals can eat much more food than other mice and still weigh 10 percent to 15 percent less. The researchers said their findings could pave the way for the development of a “fat pill” that would target the same enzyme in the human body, providing weight loss without requiring people to eat less or exercise more.
“This could be a real boon for couch potatoes. They could sit on the couch, eat, and still lose weight.”
