Have you tried virtually every diet pill, diet plan, exercise plan as well as every gimmick on the market? Have you seen the results that you wanted? If not, how far would you go to ensure you have the body you have always wanted? If traditional diet and exercise is not quick enough for you, physicians in a Mexican clinic believe they have found the answer to your problems. However, how far would you be willing to go to lose 20-30 pounds in just a few months?
Losing 20-30 pounds in just a few month is the claim these physicians in Mexico are making with a pill called Obalon. The concept behind weight loss with Obalon is simple: you swallow a pill and lose weight. How you ask? Obalon contains a deflated gastric balloon that is attached to the end of a slender tube.
How Does Weight Loss with Obalon Work Exactly?
Your weight loss process with Obalon starts with consuming the pill with a glass of water. Once the pill has reached your stomach, it opens up and releases the gastric balloon. This balloon weighs less than 6 grams. Once the balloon inflates, a physician releases the tube from the balloon and pulls the tube out. This leaves the balloon floating freely in your stomach. The Obalon balloon helps with the weight loss process by creating a feeling of fullness in your stomach. When you are feeling full, you are going to eat less and will be much less likely to overeat.
Up to three Obalon balloons can be placed in the stomach to help you continue with your weight loss journey. At the end of a few months, the balloons are removed from the stomach during a brief endoscopic procedure.
This procedure may seem simple. However, there is more to it than meets the eye. The Obalon balloon has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While the side effects are relatively mild, this Obalon pill does not come without negative effects. The most commonly reported side effect is cramping or pain in the abdominal region for the first few days after swallowing the pill. This is because the body is not used to having a foreign body in the stomach.
This New Weight Loss Pill Comes with a Heavy Price Tag!
The Obalon pill is not going to be like the typical weight loss pills you can order online or pick-up in a local drug store. This weight loss pills comes with a heavy price tag. The total duration of your treatment with the Obalon pill is going to be approximately three months time. During this time, you can expect to pay up to $4,000.
Proponents of the Obalon pill believe that this pill is going to be one of the biggest advances in the fight against obesity. However, this pill is only available in Mexico and Europe at the current time. Just how far would you go to combat obesity?
