Moderate exercise and a supplement which makes the body feel full could help people to burn fat faster without changing their diet, according to research.

Scientists tested the supplement, which is made of a chemical found naturally in the body, on a group of overweight women over the course of four weeks.

The inulin-propionate ester (IPE) pill 'significantly' increased the rate at which the women's bodies burned fat while they were resting.

Although the study was too short for the people to lose any meaningful amount of weight, burning fat faster over a longer period of time should speed up weight loss.

Past studies have also found the IPE supplement can slash cravings for calorie-laden foods and led to people eating smaller meal portions.

A team from the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre, the Universities of Glasgow and the West of Scotland, and Imperial College London did the study on 20 overweight women.

Nine of them took the IPE supplement and 11 took a placebo designed to have no effect, while all the women did a 'moderate intensity' exercise programme.

A moderate intensity workout may include fast walking or dancing, according to the World Health Organization.

Breath and blood samples taken before and after eating revealed the rate of fat-burning did not change in the group which exercised without the supplement.

But during a seven-hour period in the trial the women who took the IPE supplement burned 10 grams (0.3oz) more fat. 

The IPE pill, which makes you feel full, could speed up fat burning because the body's metabolism is faster when it is full
