7 Healthcast: Zapping Fat
A new diet is promising to shock the weight off.
Instead of exercise and pills, the diet uses a surgical implant.
The device is put under the skin and emits a small electronic pulse to the nerve endings that cause hunger pains.
Researchers say the impulses are a painless way to help people feel full.
Human testing of the device is scheduled for later this year.
