It's the beginning of a new year, and if you're like me, you have decided to try to lose some weight. The trouble is, counting calories is a pain and exercise is no fun at all! Let me introduce you to a new weight loss option that has been available in Europe for some time and may be coming to the United States soon. You might be able to eat your cake and lose weight too! Hit read more for details.

Aspiration Therapy has been available commercially in parts of Europe since 2011, and the makers of the AspireAssist Aspiration Therapy System hope to have it approved for sale here in this country soon. With Aspiration Therapy, would be dieters can eat and drink whatever they want and then drain a portion of their stomach contents through an endoscopicially-implanted tube to reduce the number of calories absorbed by their bodies. In a clinical trial done here in the United States, patients lost an average of 49% of their extra weight in the first year of use. Aspire Assist is more affordable than bariatric surgery and is reversible at any time.

This sounds almost like an eating disorder to me. What do you think? Would you consider using Aspiration Therapy to lose weight?
