The Chugay Tongue Patch Makes it Impossible for Users to Eat

The Chugay Tongue Patch created by California-based Dr. Chugay is a surgically implanted patch that rests on the top of the user's tongue and makes it both painful and difficult to chew solid foods. This forces the user to turn to a liquid diet, consequentially causing extreme weight loss. In fact, the Chugay Tongue Patch boasts a loss of up to 30 pounds in just a month. Some doctors using the Chugay Tongue Patch force users to wear it for a minimum of six weeks, so 30 pounds could very easily turn into 50 with just a little extra time.

The surgical procedure used to implant the tongue patch is relatively harmless. Patients often report speech problems and tongue swelling for a few days after the implantation, but no long-term side effects have ever been reported.

Adjusting to a liquid diet might seem extremely difficult, but by forcing patients to forgo solid foods using an intense form of operant, conditioning the Chugay Tongue Patch makes a liquid diet seem heavenly.
