There is a bizarre new trend in the weight loss arena. It's called ear stapling. Yes, a staple in your ear reportedly helps increase how much weight you can lose. |
No, it doesn't mean you should take an office stapler and start stapling your ear to your skull in order to shed a few pounds. Along with maintaining your balance and equilibrium, the ear also has a pressure point which controls your hunger. Using this information, weight loss clinicians can “staple” a piece of steel to the pressure point, effectively reducing a person's hunger and assisting them in losing weight.
While this control point is only located in one ear, it could be either left or right, and there is currently no way of discovering which ear holds this secret hunger switch. Therefore, it's necessary to have both ears stapled in order for a chance at success. The good news is, the procedure is no more painful or difficult than having your ears pierced, but you should still seek a trained professional to do the staples.
There are differing opinions on the effectiveness of ear stapling as a method of losing weight. Endorsements claim that women can shed up to four pounds each week, and men can expect to lose up to ten pounds weekly. More conservative claims indicate both sexes are more likely to drop only one or two pounds each week.
Still, for those struggling with weight loss, a couple of pounds can be quite meaningful. The staples are reportedly having an effect which lasts anywhere from six weeks up to six months, so even on the conservative end, it's still a good starting point on the road to a thinner body.
So far, ear stapling hasn't been around long enough to draw any enduring conclusions. It may work for some but not for others. However, with a world facing an obesity crisis, it might just be the thing to get people started on the path to a healthier body.
