Doctors last night hailed a new pill that helps obese patients lose up to 10 per cent of their weight.

The pill, called Gelesis100, is made from the vegetable extract cellulose. Once in the stomach, it absorbs water to swell up to 100 times its original size, helping to suppress hunger. The particles gradually disintegrate and are passed through the body.
