My idea for an effective weight-loss pill...
    #4672926 - 09/17/05 04:43 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

They should make a pill that temporarily numbs your taste buds.  It wouldn't make your tongue feel numb (unless the general consensus says yes) and it wouldn't do permanent damage to it either.  If you couldn't taste ANYTHING you ate or drank, wouldn't it be a LOT easier to eat eat really healthy food and drink lots of water? :thumbup:

Depends. but I think it would be better to just eat healthy and enjoy the way healthy food tastes instead of not tasting at all. I've been doing the atkins diet thing just to keep any fat off me. Sometimes it's hard to ignore the food that tastes great, but at least I still get to enjoy my fish, beef, chicken, and salad than taste nothing at all. Probably not a great idea for pill when you can just use your will power and eat right.

the atkins diet isn't healthy at all though, carbs are good, just make sure they are complex carbs

or so i hear.

i think people should just learn how to live healthy, stop eating junk food, and exercise. If parents would stop feeding their kids junk it would not be a problem. Screw all of these diets, and pills and shit.

They should make a pill... that's really not a pill. More like a little peizo transduced programmed with insults geared towards fatties. "Moo, moo fatty!" :cow:

Naw, but someone needs to be frank with fat people. People should just excersize some self control, confidence, and harvest the correct attitude to realize that they're worth being healthy. I have so many fat friends who just turn into the ultimate slobs after a while, but some have smartened up and have lost a lot of weight. :smile:

it sucks when you have a beer belly but never drink beer and exercise somewhat frequently though.

but i guess that wouldn't make you fat, per se.
or would it?

I read some stuff about taste altering berry's on erowid a little while ago. Click here. And there already is something that numbs your taste buds its called "chili pepper" =P.

But i think altering your taste to lose weight is not relay a solution. I mean we all know what chocolate substitute for right =P. And then its more about the chemicals. For an effective diet pill you should have a pill that blocks the hunger signal to the brain all together. And you would end up with coke, nicotine, speed kinda things. Not really that healthy...

The trick is not getting overweight in the first place and if you do lose it gradually by having a stable diet and exercising. And unfortunately some people are genetically programmed to gain weight faster then others. Maybe some genetic engineering will be an option some day =)

Actually signals for appetite come from the stomach, so while you won't eat for the taste your body will still tell you its hungry.  People with huge appetites are hungrier because their stomach has a higher threshold before it sends a signal that you don't need to eat any more.  Some extremely obese people have stomachs that never send a signal to the brain that tells them to stop eating.
