My Verditius has already considered an item to help such a thing, which would be ideal to sell to overweight nobles ^^
The trick isn't to just make them thin, which would require a ritual and not be worth as much money, but make an item which lasts for say, a year or so, which just Creo's up some sun duration food.. it will let them feast as much as they like, but with no long term nourishment effects.. as long as they're instructed to have one real meal a day, it'll literally be the perfect diet, where they can gorge themselves as much as they like and still lose weight
Not 100% sure on the requirements, but given the old, nobles mostly eat meat thing, should probably be Animal primary, with requisites of Herbam (for vegetables or fruit) Aquam (for various drinks) and Ignem (for cooking). Starting at base 10 for summoning the corpse of an animal, and probably throwing in a +1 magnitude for flexibility, as in the enchanted chef in covenants, and maybe a target of part, given the user may want various sizes or pieces of meat.
The end result as I can tell would be..
The Basket of Plenty
Level 55 effect CrAn (He/Ig)
Range: Touch Duration: Sun Target: Part
Base 10, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +1 Part, +1 Flexibility, +2 Requisites, +10 levels Unlimited uses per day
The basket of plenty can create any kind of food within itself that the owner can imagine, whether raw or pre-cooked. The food created by the basket is only temporary, and while it sates hunger, does not provide lasting nourishment, rather than being detrimental, this is marketted as it's main advantage, allowing the owner to gorge him or herself on the fantastic contents without gaining a pound of fat.
Mainly made with an effect expiry of 1 year, meaning a lab total of 61 is enough to create the item in one season.
That seem alright to everyone?.. unsure, because it has a few requisites and got a little complex... I decided to ignore the Aquam requisite in the end, soup is overrated, and giving nobles the ability to create endless wine would perhaps be troublesome.. though it could certainly be added at only a +1 magnitude.
