Gastric modification is the new Pogs. Case in point: Transcend has a new little device to allow for gastric shrinking without the hassle of a bypass. It is a tiny stimulating pad that is attached to the smooth muscles inside the stomach via a quick surgery. The device sends pulses to the stomach tricking your brain into thinking it has eaten. Finally, all the Big Macs you could ever want, with the push of a button.
