Bit of a way off yet but heres what the future of fat burning suplements could hold
Unfortunately, however, we human folk are more complex than mice, bears and the like. Were it only a simple matter of "inject the 5-AMP, the switch is turned, problem solved." I wonder much of an issue will remain with people who simply suffer addictive personalities, with their vice being food.
I doubt that simply willing themselves not to eat will work, magical hibernation drug or not. I think the first step is to make the drug taste like a big glass of happy fun candy.
Ye I know, loads of problems with it, presumably people who took it would also have problems with body temporature and lethargy. And what would happen to the carbs and sugars consumed during the torpor state?
