    GLUTAMINE AND ALANINE, two amino acids, caused mice to lose 10% of their body weight even though they were fed a high (45%) fat diet.

    Glutamine had the additional benefit of reducing blood sugar levels by 50% and insulin levels by 30%. In a second experiment glutamine was shown to stop the weight gain of mice fed a high fat diet. For two months the glutamine-supplemented mice had no change in weight while the unsupplemented group gained 15%.
