2. A plastic tongue patch
Sometimes it feels like there’s no way to stop yourself from eating a second cookie other than sewing your mouth shut. This may be where the idea of the “tongue patch diet” came from. It’s a cosmetic weight-loss surgery like nothing you’ve swallowed before. According to The Huffington Post, the surgery involves sewing a marlex patch to the tongue. This patch makes eating so painful that recipients can only consume liquids for the 30 days or so the patch remains.
