April Fool’s Day was more than a month ago. But this news sure sounds like we’re being pranked all over again.
It’s a new weight-loss pill, but it’s NOT a drug.
It’s not a vitamin or any other kind of supplement either.
Intrigued? I don’t blame you. With a pitch like that, I was curious myself.
But don’t get your hopes up.
Because while this pill ISN’T a drug… it just might be more dangerous than one!
The FREAKY & FRIGHTENING new weight-loss option
Picture this: You want to lose weight. You tell your doc you’ve tried “everything,” but nothing has worked. So he gives you a weight-loss capsule to swallow.
It’s a funny-looking pill. Hold it up to the light, and it looks like there’s… well… something a little odd in there.
And it’s BIG, too, like a horse pill.
But you REALLY want to drop those pounds. So you take a deep breath, pop the pill in your mouth, knock back that water, swallow hard, and then… nothing.
Not at first, anyway.
See, there’s something ELSE you have to do first. And this is where things get truly weird. Because your weight-loss pill also came with a magnet.
Now that you have that oversized capsule sloshing around in your stomach, you hold the magnet up to your belly. And THAT’S when you feel something.
It’s a balloon… popping out of that capsule and inflating itself with about 4 ounces of carbon dioxide. It’s enough to nearly fill your stomach, so there’s little room left for anything else.
And since you can’t eat as much, weight-loss is inevitable.
Belly balloon is a bust for major weight loss
This crazy inflating weight-loss pill has already been tested in animals and in at least one human study. But now they’re looking to expand trials, shrink the pill – maybe eliminate that weird magnet business – and bring it to market.
What’s even stranger is this isn’t the first belly balloon they’ve tried.
The other versions aren’t shoved into a pill. Instead, they’re dropped into your stomach and pumped up with a tube. But otherwise, they’re pretty similar.
They’ve caused serious side effects such as ulcers from the constant rubbing on the inside walls of the gut.
And the kicker? The weight-loss results have been FAR from impressive.
In one test on another form of the weight-loss balloon, patients lost just 10 measly pounds in one year.
That’s less than a pound a month!
You don’t have to deal with belly balloons, magnets, and painful side effects just to lose 10 lousy pounds. There’s an easier way: Get back to basics.
Go low-carb. You can eat like a king (or queen), loading up on your favorite protein-packed foods with minimal sacrifice while rapidly losing weight.
And the only balloon related business you’ll need to deal with is picking out the ones you want for the party celebrating your successful weight-loss!
