The AspireAssist system 
By: Feng Qian

A new device is being offered to obese people the United Kingdom, which will allow them to eat as much as they like and still lose weight.

The AspireAssist system has already helped hundreds of overweight people in the United States shed large amounts of weight.

However, critics have condemned the device as it allows people to gorge on food and then vomit on demand. Patients first undergo a 15-minute operation to have a tube inserted through the abdomen and into the stomach.

Once equipped, they can attach a small pump to a pipe, which pushes in water into the stomach before sucking the food back into a bag.

When not in use, the end of the tube in the stomach is sealed with a special plug. Those fitted with the device can avoid digesting as much as a third of their food by pumping some out after every meal.

The contents of the bag is then flushed into the toilet. The procedure costs just 2,000 pounds ($3,090).

Dupuy was arrested at his home in Galveston. Officers seized his cellphone, which allegedly contained proof that he posted the online sex advertisements, according to police.
