FDA Approves Bulimia Device as Treatment of Obesity

The race to invent crazier and crazier weight loss methods doesn't stop. But this one - just approved by the FDA - may be the craziest so far.

It's a "bulimia device" called the AspireAssist, that allows you to lose weight like a bulimic without having to throw up. It accomplishes this by adding a new esophagus to your body - a new hole in your stomach, leading to a tube.

Like any person suffering from bulimia you'll eat your food and then head for the bathroom. Some of the food you've eaten will then be poured into the toilet.

In case you're wondering, this is not a joke. Your doctor may now prescribe medicalized bulimia to "help" people lose weight.

Obviously recommending things like a low-carb diet or intermittent fasting would be way to extreme. Also, people not eating would be bad for the GNP. Way better to have people buy lots of food and then also buy the device to pour it into the toilet.

It paints a beautiful future of unlimited profits for the food industry: soon people could be able to eat all the time.
