Muscle Twitch Switch

New Scientist & Nature haven’t picked up on this yet but Ronald Evans at the Salk Institute has discovered that dietary supplements of a protein called PPAR-delta increases slow-twitch muscle mass and prevents weight gain on a high-fat diet and massively improves endurance in normal subjects (mice). So. Gimme an order of ribs and fries, but make sure the BBQ sauce has lots of PPAR-delta and alpha-amylase inhibitors.
