I'm always on a diet too. I can't freaking wait for something to fix the problem.
I think there's more promise in gene splicing. It's a genetic problem and I believe if you fix it then you can eat a lot more.
I will have this procedure done by early next month. They will inject me a ballon without any surgery and then they will take it away after 6 months always without surgery.
I am not over obese but i have been struggling with 15-20 kg more since i stopped playing pro sport. Obesity is also a psycological disturb. there are people who eat less and become anoresic and others who eat a lot to cope with problems.
In my case is contastant joint paints ( which now after years we know a bit more from where they originate) and some stress problems which i am working on pretty well. This what makes me over eat and snack at night but it is something that i control well always if i work on it. The ballon will full my stomach for a while and it will re-educate me too eat.
Also another reason to be fat is that some people where born with more adipose tissues. Genetic it also play a role but it is not so determinant.
I hear all this by the doctor who will perform the procedure. i know since him 1998. He is an excellent doctor who already solved some of my health issues.

"Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is an illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and I am content." -Conan the Cimmerian

I've lost over 20 pounds in 2 months by eating less than 20 grams of carbohydrate a day, along with some minor calorie restriction. I really don't think a procedure is necessary if the weight isn't life threatening.
I actually wonder if a miracle diet pill would be disastrous for the environment. Imagine how much more we (in the first world) will eat if health problems aren't a deterrant. We'll be consuming even more for leisure instead of survival, and I wonder if this will put stress on the meat industry, farmers, etc.
i lose weight too on and off , hopelly this time i will be able to stabilize for long time.
You also have a very good point in the second sentence. For sure this pill will have some social and enivroomental effects but i am not sure how disastrous they could would be.
