The DentalSlim Diet Control

Researchers have unveiled a new weight-loss device that involves attaching magnetic bolts to a person's jaw so that they can't open their mouth more than 2mm wide. This allows them to consume liquid foods, but no solid ones.

People who have used the device said that it did help them lose weight, although it made their lives, in general, "less satisfying".

The researchers emphasized that the device isn't intended for your average dieter, but rather for people struggling to lose weight so that they can have weight-loss surgery.

It reminds me of the anti-eating face mask patented in 1982.

The joys of having your jaws wired shut without the kinks of the fast-ity belt.

Several years ago, I fell and broke my jaw. It was wired shut for over three weeks, so I was on a liquid diet. I can testify as to its efficacy as a weight loss method. Despite all my efforts to maintain my weight, I lost about 10 pounds.
