Tubbies rejoice - Fat pill works!

THis is actually a big thing, people can eat drink and be merry, and tomorrow they just take a pill :)

An obesity pill which can help women drop two dress sizes in a year has been hailed by scientists after stunning test results.

The drug fools the body's metabolism into staying active, cutting weight by 12 per cent in under a year.

For a 12 and a half stone woman, this would mean shedding 21lb - or two dress sizes. The pill, Excalia, is said to work better and faster than existing drugs.

A course of one a day could have a dramatic effect on quality of life and cut the risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

Excalia will need official approval before being made available on the NHS. But a successful weight-reduction pill would be a major attraction for a health service-which spends 1billion a year on obesity-related problems.

Existing anti-obesity pills generally cut weight by five to ten per cent when taken for a year.

But men and women taking Excalia for 48 weeks lost 12 per cent of their body weight, it was reported at a conference run by the North American Association for the Study of Obesity, the world's leading scientific obesity research body.
