"up to 16%??". and then it doesn't work anymore??..they think the public is stupid.. because, he didn't even give a time frame..then the co-creator says he lost 44% of his body fat/weight?? over a year's time, wearing it about 1 hour a day..and he was asked about his food or regimen but avoided specifics in his answer..makes me believe that the food issue is not as relevant as conservative doctors would like us to believe re: the outcome.

i'm a licensed health care worker who can't wait for the day when 'modern' medicine catches up to reality..and yes, safety is important..but if they're letting those women try it out, that's not their primary concern at this point..there are other concerns having nothing to do with safety but that's another discussion.

and curious about what happens if the device is worn more than 1 hour a day..what are the real parameters re: how long it can be worn within each 24 hour period.

also: I've seen people very motivated to move the body more and eat better after getting some kind of a head start re: weight loss..so, that issue needs to be addressed and updated, too.

and btw, was that woman at the end who said she was skeptical, she was a doctor??.. if so, she's just repeating the party line, which is tired..because if she's a doctor, she is ignoring science, if it's true that the device works to affect the hypothalamus.. again, looking forward to more honesty and for modern western medicine to catch up to truth..and if this device is also honest, i wonder how it will be marketed and what kind of restrictions might be applied..prescription only??..mail order?? will be interested to see what happens with it..either way, it's time bariatric medicine walks itself into the current century..finally!

Oh gosh. I wish!!!

I think this will work I've got a Nuero stimulator in my back. It blocks the signal from my nerve to my brain. I've had 3 surgeries to remove 3 L discs. Now I don't need any pain meds. I took OxyContin for over 5 yrs before this implant.

How are they going to show the first part and not show the follow up with the results? Not that I'm surprised.

ok so restricting your calories basically. just making it easier to have an eating disorder and to hate hunger and food. good job doctors. if you want to lose weight. its the food thats the problem. get off the meat, dairy and eggs. and up the fruits, vegetables, whole sprouted grains etc consumption then the vitamin and minerals, and enzymes count goes way up and disease and sickness goes way down
