New Delhi: We all wish to have a metabolism that helps us relish cheese burst pizzas and a full slice of chocolate cake without having to worry about gaining the slightest weight. But how often do such dreams come true?
If research is anything to go by, hopefully soon enough these dreams will be a reality for all those who just cannot stay off the high-fat diet.
