There are foams that that go into an area (the stomache for instance) and when the chemicals mix they form solids. We have starving children and we can make slowly, time released, solid foam stomache fillers to kill hunger and they can contain vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. This is cheaper than vitamin shots and constant expensive feedings. If we add all components for life and kill hunger pains then, we have solved one of the World's most horrific problems. We can also add digestable/time released balloons with lard and other things like medicine for longer life spans or, just add that in the expanding foam product. It comes from what is know as A-B Foam but, that is toxic and is only used as a filler in fiberglass parts.

You could also use this stomache filler, instead of surgery, to shrink the open space of the stomache and lessen hunger in order to loose weight.

Kind of sounds like Soylent Green. Except not made from human by products. Puts all the farmers and ranchers out of work.

Over weight people need to eat less, and consume better things like yogurt. Yogurt is a biological aid that will help keep your digestive track happy.

Just my openions.

You need to understand that fasting can be done for months and is practiced in other coutries Religiously and there is no faster way for weight loss than fasting and there is allmost never a death due to their use of fasting.
For those who are morbidly obese, this product illiminates dangerous life threatening surgery and provides a fast plan to save lives when weight is the factor.

AaronBurns are you related to Charles Montgomery "Monty" Burns?

What about all of those people from the Bible that fasted for 40 days and 40 nights? They did it with out the aid of a human made product. I feel you and the Bible are wrong about fasting. It just sets you up for Yo-Yo weight losses and gains. The only true way to lose weight is to change your life, and take it off slowly with proper nutrition and exercise.

There are already some things available that you are talking about. Soldier and astronauts use them. Two examples where humans are pushing themselves to the extreme, and I personally like to think of myself as a rocket man. I just drank some Citrucel (like Tang with fiber) to help soak up the excess alcohol I drank last night, because my nerves are frayed because I am so scared that BUSH might win this election. If he does, then I will really SOL because I just sank most of the small amount of money that I have into tech stocks. Look at 5 year chart for some of the stock, and notice how they drop after BUSH got into the White House.


Some of the tech stocks that I am betting big on are listed below. Of course, we all have free will, so you should not simply take my advice because I am biased (I need you to invest so can do better myself). You will want to seek out more info from reputable, free news sources because talk is cheap!

In a way you are right. But, for fast needed weight loss you combine a period of fasting then you go off the fasting and return to low carb diets and exercise.
The 2 or 3 day Hollywood diet consists of just liquids for three days and it promises to let you loose 10 or more pounds. This really works because I have fasted and I know how to loose twenty or more pounds in a couple weeks even with some nutritional foods but, very little intake of any calories at all.
You just need to balance both types of weight loss together to maxamize the weight loss.
I wouldn't say that if I couldn't prove it. I did the anerexia thing about four times and it can be dangerous. I would never tell someone to fast without some sort of proper nutrition to save your own life. That's why my stomache filler fools the Hypothalimus but, has the nutritional value to sustain good health as well.
We are simply trying to kill hunger pains, the stomache signals to the brain and says "I'm hungry!". With a full stomache the brain thinks you have just ate and you feel no pain all while loosing the pounds safely. Or like in the Third World we include a constant high calorie diet that sustains them for long periods of time. It all depends on what you put into the stomache filler.

perhaps if people who wanted to spend the money to develop this product actually put the cash and time into healing third world countries and making them sustainable then we wouldn't need to fill starving children's stomachs with artificial crap. Would you want that stuff in your child's body? Constant expensive feedings? That sounds terrible- starving children need real food, the same stuff that we in North America waster every day, they don't need our inventions.

I am in the third world. The basic food needs of an adult here can still be met for under USD 0.15/day with local food the person is used to. It is just that there are far too many of us, which is leading to the starvation problem.
It is true that far too much money and even food is wasted by governments trying to regulate things. Charity is not the answer. Sustainable development in line with the local cultural ethos is what is needed.

Leaving social issues aside, on the technical aspects of the original post of AaronBurns, there are many vegetable expanding fibre gels which can be formulated with added minerals and vitamins, which can do the job AaronBurns intends with complete safety. (For the other two worlds?). Stir up a couple of spoons of this in cold water and drink it. The stuff expands to a gel inside the stomach and fills it. It is only space filling and firm enough to help peristalsis

Thank you so very much, Rishi!!!!
My intent is too save as many lives as possible because, I am so aware of the needs of your Country and other starving countries.
It breaks my heart to see other people of the World die from starvation when I, myself, need only walk 5 minutes for anything I wish to eat.
It is not fair and your only problem is that you were born there and that is not your fault.
I want this product out NOW. ASAP. Too meet the needs today.
You were the only one who understood my idea and the intent.
You are very intelligent Rishi and I hope you become rich from your ideas because, I know that, you and I will help people.
I am poor and have to rent basement space from my parents so, I know a bit about not having what I want. I haven't saved any money in five years and going.
I feel for everyone who doesn't even have food when people here take every thing for granted and food is the least of their concerns.
Please spread the word about my idea and maybe we can help produce this product so desperately needed today.
Again, Thank you kindly.
Aaron S. Burns
P.S. - Saving lives takes efforts like ours and is of number one importance on this planet.

Filling someones stomach with vitamins and foam can take away the pain for a while, but they'll still die of malnutrition. If you want to invent some nutrient and vitamin filled foam that would be cheap, logistically great and so on, you'd have to reinvent food itself.
There have been so many failed attempts of creating and producing some cheap, lightweight, nutritious and vitamin rich edibles for those starving kids. Right now, everyone has given up and are focusing on building up the economy instead.
Those food-replacement-inventions might be suitable for us for a few months or even years, but it's far more complicated with people who have been starving since they were born. Everything from electrolytes to the consistency of the belly-acid is out of balance and ... it's really complicated and right now 'food' is considered the best cure, but even with food there are complications.

BUT generally the idea is good. Feeling less hungry is a good feeling. You probably don't need to add vitamins, as it might eventually even trigger hypervitaminosis. Nevertheless, this would contribute to all kinds of fields. There are a few foods now that have a similar effect and Im sure its possible by studying those etc. Good luck to everyone on the job!
