Italian scientists came up with a new tool to control obesity while researching on nappy liners! The powdery pill which is made of cellulose, expands in the stomach when taken with a glass of water and can stop hunger for a few hours.

Professor Luigi Ambrosio, lead researcher in Italy’s National Research Council, suggests that the hydro gel has a similar effect to gastric banding. Professor Ambrosio compared the effect of the pill to having a bowl of spaghetti and recommends that pill should be taken about half an hour before meal times. Dieters can still have their meal but only need small portions.

Dr David Haslam, clinical director of the National Obesity Forum said there had been products around for many years which had tried to produce a feeling of fullness.

"The theory has been tried and tested in the past but it's not been that successful. We'd need much bigger trials but it's a reasonable enough idea. However, it would have to be given with the appropriate nutritional advice; you can't live on such tablets."

The pill which does not have a name yet, have already been tested on 20 people but the results of a much bigger trial is expected in October and the product may be launched in May 2008.
