    Did you see this June FDA approval ??? Does this idea disturb you as much as it does me ?

    i think people won't learn the skills needed to lose weight and keep it off. it's another way around "eat what you want and not be responsible", imho.
    and who the heck wants to have this done EVERY time they eat. might be better off to take a walk an hour after eating rather than having your stomach pumped out.

    Thanks for the fixed link Jo.



    I was amazed when I read this article. At least with the bypass surgery that people put themselves through they have to modify their eating. I can't even imagine draining my stomach

    It's incredible the way we continue down so many wrong paths...this is horrendous. It's going to encourage gorging as people will just think they can jettison what they eat before it's absorbed, therefore giving them license to keep on eating.

    I agree. They don't learn anything about nutrition or self control and set themselves up for infections and the need for constant medical monitoring. And I would guess, they don't work in the long run.

    It's just medical (and much more expensive) bulemia.
