Scientists look to control obesity by burning more calories

"New research by scientists from the Mayo Clinic and the University of Iowa suggests that obesity may be kept under check by increasing the number of calories burnt by muscles.

Researchers experimented on mice to explore the 'fuel gauge' in muscles and found new evidence that treatments done to disrupt the sarcolemmal ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) channels in muscles may help to limit obesity."
