Let's see... first you insert a camera into your duodenum...

Then... oh never mind; I don't want to know!!

Or you could just eat right and exercise... naaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh

What will they think of next. Sad thing is, people will try this. Just like anything, there will be people who think this might be the thing instead of eating right and getting off butt to exercise.

Wow-- this is crazy! Just to quote from the first several lines of the article:

"...painlessly slows the passage of food through the digestive tract, an experiment shows. Scientists hope that this nonsurgical treatment might induce weight loss over time by reducing a person’s appetite."

Sounds like they're relying on constipation to make you not want to eat!

Bizarre... No thank you!

I agree that doesn't sound healthy and sounds very uncomfortable.. seems like it would make you want to give up on weight loss!!
