So this new study by the Karolinska Institute tells us a few things we already knew, and some we didn’t.
After looking at 20 programs that put people on a straight-bonkers weight-loss diet of 1,000 calories/day, the analysis concluded that high-protein [and I'm assuming Low/Slow Carb] diets after the program helped people keep off the rebound weight. Where have we heard that before?
It’s hard to imagine anyone, or their body, not having a bit of a freakout once the weight or fat is lost. The difference is jarringly-stark. And trying to re-enter ‘the real world’ after such an incarceration is not the smoothest of transitions…

Here’s a great video by ASAP Science to show you what 200 calories looks like.
It’s also a pretty good primer on the different Calorie-Densities of the foods you’re probably eating.

Chalk another one up for the “Horny Scientists Study Sex, File Results Under Captain Obvious Department”.
Stuart Brody, Petr Weiss and their cult of Kinsey-following-hound-dogs at the University of West Scotland [who would not let yours-truly tag along, DAMMIT] conducted a noble experiment on our favorite species: WOO-MAAAN!!!, doing our favorite activity: “Ye Olde How’s your father?”, and come up with some guessable-yet-Fantastic results.
CiCi’s All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet-buzzkilling researchers at Trinity College Dublin have discovered both an interesting and depressing quirk about a particular fat-fighting type of cell in the body.
Their potency to regulate obesity goes down the fatter you get.
Oh; And then it just quits.
It turns out these cells, called INKTs, help keep most people from getting obese.

-Ok, I just made that product name up. But it’s a good one, eh?
Anyway, the ultimate use for this treatment will probably be limited to plastic-surgery spot-improvements, but Dr. Ouliana Ziouzenkova of Ohio State University and her team have come up with an injectable substance that remodels fatty tissue, ~dissolving it in a way.
What it does is to use a very unique type of fat that has an active metabolism, and lets it leak out tiny little holes in the injected capsules into the surrounding tissue. It then creates more of this, “Brown Adipose Tissue” on-site.
