We will show that for every convex body $K\subset R^d$ ($d\ge 2$) with the center of mass at the origin and every $a\in (0,1/2)$, one can find a convex polytope $P$ with at most $(C/a)^{(d-1)/2}$ vertices such that $(1-a)K\subset P\subset K$. This is a joint work with Marton Naszodi and Dmitry Ryabogin.
