Americans might be more obsessed than most when it comes to a certain standard of beauty, but it was British company Obalon that created a unique weight loss pill that essentially mimics gastric banding surgeries and more. It focuses on simulating the full feeling people get when they eat without actually eating all that much. Obalon achieves this trick with a pill that inflates to the size of a softball once ingested.

By taking these Obalon balloon pills, people will see drastic results over a period of three months. This non-invasive procedure could dramatically help people who are having trouble losing weight and controlling their appetites. Not to mention that Obalon's alternative is much more affordable.
