Workout In a Pill

In my middle class mind, I think that in between shopping sprees, Oprah just takes a nap while Bob Greene manipulates her muscles in her sleep. I suppose it's not that easy, even for Oprah, but that all may change soon.  Australian scientists are working on a "vanity drug" which would simulate the effects of execise by activating an enzyme that boosts metabolism. While the drug won't actually build muscle, it could potentially help you lose fat without dieting.


In a society that measures prosperity by seeing how skinny you can get without actually dying, what would happen if looking like Jennifer Aniston was the norm? Would being out of shape in a world of SlimFastNano become chic?


Read about the skinny pill at MSNBC.
