Italian researchers are conducting clinical trials for a gastric-bypass-diet-pill. The new diet pill, when taken with 2 glasses of water, expands to produce a sense of “fullness”, an effect similar to gastric banding. It’s a gel made from cellulose that can soak up to 1,000 times its weight, causing a vitamin-sized capsule to expand to the size of a tennis ball.
“The effect is like eating a nice plate of pasta. If you sit down for a meal with a stomach that already feels full, you’ll end up eating less” said Luigi Ambrosio, the lead researcher at the National Research Council’s Institute for Composite and Biomedical Materials in Naples.
It’s a great marketing gimmick, but save your money because you can create the same effect by eating many low calorie fruits and veggies. An apple for instance weighs in at only 50 calories and gives you a sense of fullness that will effectively cut your daily intake of other high-calorie foods. Apples also provide many nutritious benefits. They contain pigments called flavonoids, found in high concentrations in apples, onions and teas, that have cardio-protective properties. The pectin fiber contained in apples will also help you lower your cholesterol.
So forget the miracle diet pill. The answer can be found at the local grocery store. Call it a gastric bypass in an apple…Tags: Diet Pills, Weight Loss
