According to researchers at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, they've managed to trick white fat cells (whose function can result in obesity) into behaving like brown fat cells (whose function contributes to weight loss).

But, as scientist Chad Cowan points out, there are still a whole lot of mental and physical benefits to exercise, apart from weight loss. Better sleep, sharper memory and reduced stress and depression are the first that come to mind.
