WANT. (http://news.aol.com/health/article/fatostatin-could-lead-to-obesity-drug/647457?icid=main)

Scientists have discovered a small molecule, which they've named fatostatin, that stops the body from making fat.
Fatostatin could someday lead to a new all-in-one pill fighting obesity, diabetes and cholesterol.
Fatostatin blocks SREBP, which controls fat synthesis, according to Science Daily.
Obese mice injected with fatostatin in the study, published in the Aug. 28 issue of the journal Chemistry and Biology, showed noticeable weight loss without a big difference in their eating habits, the researchers found.
After four weeks, the mice weighed 12 percent less with 70 percent lower blood sugar levels, and their cholesterol levels dropped as well.
"We are frankly very excited about it," said Salih Wakil, a researcher at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas, where the study took place. "Hopefully down the road, fatostatin or a derivative of fatostatin may be helpful."

Something's not right about interfering THAT much with the body's natural functions. I'm extremely suspicious of every "miraculous" solution.

Out of curiosity how old are the people who are saying they can't gain weight?
Most times it doesn't last. I put on nearly 70lbs when I turned 19 after not being able to gain anything.

I think this sounds interesting, but I think I'd prefer the old fashioned eat healthy and work out.

I tend to keep away from food for fear of gaining the 50 pounds I lost back. Honestly, it would be nice to eat again :o

I read somewhere on cracked that the human species is evolving to combat obesity. But I read that article a long time ago so I don't remember a lot of it :o

God I live for the day something like this goes into production haha. It does seem a bit too miraculous to be true, but we can always dream.

I never gain weight either. It took until, like, middle school to reach 60 pounds.
