Do you think they should create a pill that makes the body’s immune system attack it’s own fat ?

I think the best weight loss supplement would be a pill that manipulates your body into attacking its own fat. The body would see its own fat as a threat like a virus. Everytime your body stores fat, the immune system would attack and destroy that fat. Why don’t scientist create things to destroy body fat? They need a miracle pill that just shreds away a massive amount of fat in a super short period of time. I want my body to just burn off 30 pounds of fat in a matter of minutes.

  • No, because for one that would eventually get really out of hand.  Literally, people walking as close to sticks as they possibly could.  Second reason, it is really deadly to have little or no fat.

    No, because some amount of fat is necessary for good health and survival. What "should" happen is people should take better control of their own health and eating habits, and not expect science to devise a pill to undo all their poor choices.

    That kind of pill would kill you. Body fat is essential in keeping you healthy. It is found in many membranes of organs and stored all over your body. If a pill attacks body fat, it would not just target your abs and buttocks, but all over your body. You would be destroying yourself from your head to your toes.

    The real problem is many people have too much fat and refuse to eat right and get enough exercise. They want a magic pill so they can keep doing what they do.  Everything in life has consequences and that includes every morsel of food and every pill you take.

    Not possible. You can't alter the body's metabolism to that degree. And even if they could, the effects would ultimately make you sick as a dog. About 10 years ago, they engineered a fat substitute for foods that resisted absorption. Olestra ended up being banned, bcuz people had horrible side effects from it.

    Why would scientists or their investors, invest millions in money and work-hours in something that's actually combatted more cost-effectively and, ultimately, more healthily by eating a salad and going for a jog? Logical........
