A PILL to prevent obesity could be on the horizon after scientists discovered exactly how protein triggers weight loss.They hope by harnessing the power of protein-rich foods, the mainstay of the Atkins diet, they may be able to develop new drugs to cure or prevent obesity.The diet, favoured by celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Aniston, focuses on eating more beef, fish, milk and eggs.They make us feel full, and mean we end up eating less as a result.But tests on mice revealed it is a chemical produced in the gut while digesting these foods that trigger a change in hormone levels that control how hungry a person is.The end-product - phenylalanine - boosts production of the 'fullness" hormone, ghrelin, and reduces production of the "hunger" hormone, GLP-1.In one experiment, researchers from Imperial College London gave 10 rats and mice a single dose of phenylalanine.And in another, diet-induced obese mice, which are typically used as a model of human … [Read more...] about Fat-busting pill ‘one step closer as scientists discover HOW protein makes you feel full’
