Want to lose weight quickly? Try having a one-inch-by-one-inch mesh square sewn to your tongue. Yes, you read that, correctly. S-E-W-N.

Cord Jefferson of GOOD explains:

It’s a new procedure in which a roughly one-inch-by-one-inch square of mesh is sewn onto a person’s tongue. Unlike the nicotine patch, this patch contains no chemicals or medicine. Instead, it merely sits there and makes it difficult—and even painful—to eat solid food. In essence it’s nothing more than a modern version of wiring one’s jaw shut, forcing the “patient” to literally starve themselves.

If you’re living in Los Angeles, several doctors currently offer the procedure, charging around 1,500 dollars per patient. WARNING: THE PATCH CAN BE A CHOKING HAZARD AND CAUSE NERVE DAMAGE…if nothing else discourages you.

  1. It’s scary. Precursor to “The Chip” in skin?
