New Drink Promises Less Hunger While Dieting

 

A new drink promises dieters to keep them feeling full for hours without hunger pangs. The drink was tested among 23 volunteers who experienced 30 percent less hunger 5 hours after drinking it.

The drink contains a dietary fiber named alginate, which is strongly gelling. "The drink was designed in such a way that it only gels under gastric conditions and not in the product before consumption," one of the developers explained.

The chocolate-flavored drink contains 190 calories per 325ml.
The study was conducted at the Unilever Research & Development in Vlaardingen in the Netherlands.

  If  
 
the drink is well flavored then i think many obese people will consume it and the desired effects can not stay away.

What´s the point in making a drink that makes you feel full if it fills you full of calories too? Make a 0 cal version and call it a day folks. As it stands, this drink is like drinking a can of soda, and you know what? All that carbonation tends to make me feel full too!

If the drink can be substituted for a meal, they´ve got something. 190 calories is way better than an 800-calorie McDonald´s pig-out.

Only 800 calories from McDonalds, that´s a light snack not a pig out ;)
