Body’s ‘Marijuana’ May Be Key to Diet Pill

A dreamy diet pill thatِ somedayِ allows people toِ eat asِ much asِ they wantِ without gaining weight seemsِ possible, based onِ newِ research intoِ certainِ brain chemicals thatِ influence howِ quickly weِ burn fat.
Scientists usedِ lab mice toِ turn downِ brain levels ofِ endocannabinoids, chemicals produced byِ our bodies thatِ areِ similar inِ molecular structure toِ theِ active ingredients inِ marijuana.
The researchers explained thatِ the mice wereِ inِ a hypermetabolic state, inِ which theirِ bodies wereِ usingِ upِ energy (that is, calories) atِ a muchِ higher rate thanِ normal.
