Switch into Weight Loss Mode

A recent research article published in the highly prestigious journal Nature suggests that it may be possible to lose weight by manipulating a genetic "switch" that increases metabolism.  From a FoxNews report on the study:
Many who struggle with their weight will often blame a “slow” metabolism – meaning their bodies do not burn calories as quickly or as efficiently as others’.
For those who do suffer this condition, investigators from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) say they have found a genetic “switch” that can accelerate a person’s basal metabolic rate – leading to a dramatic reduction in the risk for obesity and diabetes.
