While sailing on the Celebrity Century, I attended a talk given by Jennifer Dabu. I listened to her talk about using acupuncture for weight loss. I was very skeptical that this would work but since I have tried everything else, I thought I would try this too. Much to my surprise, after several treatments, I did not feel as bloated, the gas has disappeared and best of all, after a two week cruise, my clothes still fit quite comfortably. So, I would recommend giving acupuncture a try to boost your weight loss efforts.
