    ... but our cells actually have run out of energy. This might be the exact opposite of what we need in ME. There is a long way to go on the science.

    GWThese already exist and have been frequently used in studies. Look up the term "exercise mimetics". Two commonly studied ones are GW1516 (aka 516) and AICAR. They work by turning on AMPK, PPARs, and PGC-1 proteins and genes, which seems to be a different mechanism than what this article describes. You can even buy GW1516 from bodybuilding sites for use as a fat-loss drug. Both GW1517 and AICAR are banned substances by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
