Researchers have found a type of fat inside the body that could help people lose weight, the New York Times is reporting.

Adults have stores of “brown fat” that can produce heat and burn calories  Scientists had known that babies have brown fat but thought they lost it after infancy.


Researchers now are trying to find out how to activate brown fat, which is found in the upper back of adults.

One of the truly surprising things about brown fat is that it tastes just like chicken.

Scientists have discovered that a little brown fat burns an awful lot of energy.  Kinda like a Hummer.

The problem with brown fat is that it’s located in the upper back and most people stored regular fat in their waists, thighs, buttocks and hips.  If only there were a way to turn that fat brown.  Perhaps a laxative?
