Nicotine and Fat Loss??

I just read an article on here about nicotine being a potent fat loss supplement. I must have missed the explanation somewhere. Can someone explain the mechanism(s) behind this or toss me a link or two???

Cheers,

Nicotine is a potent DA and ACh agonist which gives a strong anorectic effect. Also has a minor lipolytic effect. Unless you are one of the lucky few who can pick it up and then put it back down with no problems it’s best to leave it alone. And if you don’t know best to not try it it to find out IMO…
