Zetacap is the latest craze on the Internet touting itself as the world's first and only "gastric bypass pill." The plan promises to transform your body in 90 days.
The company claims the pill contains a super thick, non-digestible fiber with a secret ingredient that when combined with water forms a filling gel, like a balloon in the stomach, and within minutes the user feels like they've just eaten a big meal.
The idea may seem outrageous but the company says 200,000 users have collectively lost more than a million pounds. Zetacap's web site claims it works for 90 percent of its users.
Dietary experts say buyer beware. "I don't know that anybody can ever be transformed in any way, and that's also after gastric surgery. You still have to do the hard work -- eating smaller portions, eating a healthy diet," says Cathy Nonas, American Dietetic Association.
Zetacap has not been evaluated or approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
