Throughout history, man has faced problems requiring a definite solution. Problems such as "My family is starving," or "I am facing imminent death after being chased by bison."

Well, good news! We've officially reached the point where a pressing question is "How can I lose weight through peeing?" And of course, we've found an answer:

Welp, there you have it. But before you start getting your bedpan ready to collect the excess weight you plan to shed, turns out this might not be the miracle solution it might appear to be: "It's dangerous to re-absorb fatty acids into your bloodstream because if it's dissolved down into salt it would send cholesterol levels sky high."

Sorry for getting your hopes up that you'd lose that extra 15 lbs. I guess now we have to focus on those other little nagging problems like famine and global warfare.
