British sci­en­tists came to the aid of those who dream of los­ing weight, but can not cope with a con­stant appetite.

Qual­i­ty weight loss usu­al­ly requires an inte­grat­ed approach to solv­ing the issue: phys­i­cal activ­i­ty, adher­ence to a prop­er diet, a healthy lifestyle, con­stant work on one­self and willpow­er. Not every­one can boast of self-con­trol and iron dis­ci­pline, so soon­er or lat­er, many who want to lose weight “go the dis­tance.”

How­ev­er, sci­en­tists from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Birm­ing­ham have devel­oped an inno­v­a­tive method of deal­ing with excess weight. This method of los­ing weight is no less effec­tive than the clas­sic ones. Plus, it’s less painful.

Dur­ing exper­i­ments with a vari­ety of sub­stances used in the food indus­try, the researchers cre­at­ed a unique gel made up of nat­ur­al ingre­di­ents.

In its orig­i­nal state, this slim­ming drug is a pow­der with a pleas­ant cit­rus smell. After enter­ing the stom­ach and inter­act­ing with diges­tive juices, the pow­der swells and increas­es in vol­ume.

The result­ing jel­ly-like mass has prac­ti­cal­ly no nutri­tion­al val­ue; does not con­tain calo­ries, how­ev­er, it has weight and can slow down the diges­tive process.

In this case, the brain receives a sig­nal that there is enough food in the stom­ach that needs to be digest­ed. Accord­ing­ly, the feel­ing of hunger dis­ap­pears.

Sci­en­tists have not yet deter­mined how much of the “mag­ic pow­der” should be added to ordi­nary food for max­i­mum effect: research is still ongo­ing.
