Vibrosphere: a good workout in half the time

The Swedish company ProMedVi is introducing a new gadget called Vibrosphere for those eager to lose weight in half the time. The gadget combines two recognized methods of training: balance and vibration training.

According to the company, the tactile stimulation under the feet in combination with the element of balance can lead to a rapid improvement in proprioception and consequently balance. The vibrations also increase activity in the neuromuscular system through involuntary muscle contractions which contribute to an improved musculature performance and interplay between the muscles and the nerves.

The Chopsticks Diet: lose weight by eating with chopsticks

The London-based Japanese writer Kimiko Barber has just introduced a new book entitled The Chopsticks Diet, in which she explains that eating with chopsticks will help you lose weight. According to Barber, “Eating with chopsticks slows you down, and so you eat less.”

Eating fast will make the person overeat because it takes 20 minutes for the brain to register what the stomach contains. It’s harder for Westerners to eat with chopsticks; Therefore, when eating with chopsticks, it means taking smaller mouthfuls, which tend to get chewed better, slowing down the meal, and making it easier to digest.

This brings up to my mind a brilliant money making idea! I should introduce to the Japanese a new book entitled “The Knife and Fork Diet”, claiming that eating with a knife and fork will help people lose weight.

UltraShape: lose the extra fat without surgery

When I first heard of this a couple of months ago, I did not pay much attention to it since it was brand new and not much testing has been done on it. But now, it is hitting the markets, and a lot of people are willing to pay a few thousand bucks for it.

The Israeli company UltraShape has just introduced a new fat-busting technology that uses ultrasound to target fat cells and literally make them explode. The procedure does not involve surgery, and costs around a thousand dollars a session. Each session takes nearly an inch of fat.

It is mostly intended for the extra fat (that people cannot remove with regular exercise), and not to remove large quantities of fat. It does not work on cellulite, but the company said they are working on it. It is now available in Canada, but is waiting for the FDA approval in the States.
