If you’re a food lover who hates the consequences of eating fatty and rich foods, a new weight loss pump that sucks food out of your stomach allows you to eat whatever you want without taking in calories.

While it may sound horrific, the pump prevents the body from digesting one third of each meal, as it is pumped out of the stomach through a tube inserted in the abdomen.

The pump has been tested on 24 obese patients, and Aspire Bariatrics, the company behind the pump, has partnered with inventor Dean Kamen in order to patent the device.

Kamen is most famous for inventing the Segway, the two-wheeled motorized scooter that moves according to how the user shifts his weight.


Critics say the device does not tackle the causes of obesity, but Aspire Bariatrics insists it is an alternative for those looking to avoid gastric-bypass surgery.

“The AspireAssist Aspiration Therapy System works by reducing the calories absorbed by the body,” said the company via a statement. “After eating, food travels to the stomach immediately, where it is temporarily stored and the digestion process begins.

“Over the first hour after a meal, the stomach begins breaking down the food, and then passes the food on to the intestines, where calories are absorbed.

“The AspireAssist allows patients to remove about 30 per cent of the food from the stomach before the calories are absorbed into the body, causing weight loss.”

Expert Tam Fry, a trustee of the National Obesity Forum, said he was dismayed by the new system.

“I haven’t seen anything as horrific as this before,” he said.

“You are supposed to eat and then digest, not pump your food out. 


“It seems they are trying to come up with a quick-fix for lazy people. It is far better to eat properly and in the correct amounts.

“I understand that those who are obese need help, but we should be focusing on counseling and especially education.

“The key is to teach children early about nutrition and a healthy diet.”

The company claimed that patients lost an average of 49 percent of their excess weight, equivalent to 45lbs, during the first year of using the system in a U.S clinical trial. 


Is this the answer to ending obesity, or should people have to change their lifestyles to curb their extra weight?
