Losing weight sure isn't as fun as putting it on.
Imagine if there was ice cream that you could shovel into your mouth in the name of fitness. Or if there was a clause in the Chinese buffet that declared that after 4 plates you will start to build abs that would put Miley Cyrus' to shame.
Sadly, that is not a reality that we live in. But that's not to say that the reality that we do live in is anything close to logical. The latest dieting solution to come out of the lab is set to leave you sore, hungry, and involves wedging a chip into your frontal cortex.

I spent fifteen minutes googling "breakfast burritos" before I got out of bed this morning.I then thought about food over and over again (in between wondering what my ex was doing and whether I needed a vacation) the whole journey to work. It's been one of those Thursday mornings.
Why am I telling you this?Well, maybe I'm getting my period, which leaves me prone to oversharing. It also increases my appetite tenfold.
There's a science behind the period-donut-binge.I mean, I eat donuts throughout the month, but, typically, a woman is more likely to gorge on donuts, chocolate, pretzels, and chocolate pretzels during her period. Why? Because of science! According to some medical-sounding information that I found online: "Some research suggests that changes in the levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone cause cravings for foods rich in carbohydrates and sugars before a period. Carbs and sweet foods may also help relieve the low mood and fatigue that often occur prior to the onset of a period."
You know what you don't need while you peel open your third charleston chew after a long day of period cramps?A zap to the brain for over-eating!
Now, you can call me crazy...But, coming across this news story this morning, I couldn't help but think what it would be like if I were to get the chip. On reflection about how much time I have already spent thinking about food today, I can only imagine that the zapper would have had to work in over-drive and that my poor defenseless brain would be fried to a crisp...
... Crispy bacon...... you see my problem?
The chip has been developed by medical technology company, NeuroPace.

The chip was invented to treat epilepsy.
via: Neuropace.comI mean that makes more sense, right? If I was suffering from seizures to the brain, then maybe I'd be more keen to get a chip implanted into my brain than I would if I couldn't get Big Macs off my mind.
The chip works by tracking your brain activity.
