Technology and medicine are taking great strides in their attempt to make human effort as minimal as possible. While most of us who want to lose weight would enroll in a gym, or find some other mode of cardio activity, there’s now a quick-fix in the market which aims to be a game changer.

New miracle drug liraglutide says it can help people shed an average 19lb a year. According to doctors, people on the drug lost almost a stone more than they would by counting calories and upping their exercise regime.

Liraglutide has been approved by the health watchdogs and will be available on prescription within months. It also reduces blood pressure, raises good cholesterol and prevents diabetes, all while producing a “feel-good factor” according to its Danish makers Novo Nordisk.

The medicine is based on a hormone found in the gut, which sends signals to the brain to trick it into believing that you are full. End result, people eat 10 percent lesser than they normally would.

Backed by science, if Liraglutide did make it to the market, would you try it?
