I get it. Extra tummy weight is an absolute bummer and it's really easy to be self conscious and feel like everyone is staring right at your problem zone. I never really had belly issues until I became a mom and had to have an emergency c-section. A year and a half later and I'm still fighting the extra hanging belly I now own .

I know what it's like to feel like you've reached the point of desperation. When you've tried all the diets and workouts in the world and you glance down and your belly is still there, silently mocking you. What you do in addition to diet and exercise to work on your problem spots is a decision you have to make for yourself, but there's something new and it's been approved by the FDA and I'm curious if you'd give it a try.

Three doctors have developed a machine that will allow you to eat a meal, and then dump your undigested food straight into the toilet. Basically, you'll be able to take the calories right out of your system before they can do any damage to your waistline.

The device is called the AspireAssist, and as I mentioned, it was recently approved by the FDA. Unfortunately, from what I've read, getting the device installed isn't so much fun.

An outpatient procedure is required to install the AspireAssist and it involves making a one-inch incision in your belly and then connecting a tube to the outside world. Apparently once the procedure is done, those with this device will be able to remove about 30% of the contents of their stomach about 20 to 30 minutes after every meal.

If/when this hits the market, would you be open to trying it, or do you think sticking to regular diet and exercise is the way for you?
