      I'm always paranoid about new miracle weight loss things. I think nothing beats the old fashioned proper diet and excercise...not saying I do those things but I would before I used the patch :P

        I find the old adage "if it's too good to be true, it probally is" is very true and most of the time applies to lose weight quick. I agree with Jamy losing weight is all about behavioral changes, healthy diet, and exercise. I think it was my WW leader who said it didn't take a few days to gain the weight so it's going to take time to lose it.

          I second that!!! All the patches and pills make me nervous. I believe you already have everything you need to lose weight!! The only thing I need is a little motivation and perserverance

            i found these reviews....not convinced really.

            BACKGROUND

            First there were patches to help you quit smoking and now there is a patch for losing weight. Created for women trying to lose those last five pounds, the Pink Patch is a substance-infused sticker that you slap on once a day to curb your appetite. The ingredients, which seep into the skin, are intended to control your appetite for 24 hours while revving up your metabolism, curbing your appetite, boosting your energy and elevating your mood. Pink Patch is the newest product from Curb Your Cravings, responsibile for the Hoodia patch.


            The Pink Patch is marketed toward girls and women in their teens and early twenties. You are expected to lose approximately one to three pounds each week.


            The suggested use for the Pink Patch is to stick one patch on your skin in the morning and leave it on throughout the entire day. You are encouraged to drink a lot of water, avoid alcohol and limit caffeine to only a cup per day while you are wearing the Pink Patch.


            PRO

            - The Pink Patch may be able to help you lose weight

            - Pink Patch does not cite any side effects


            CON

            - No FDA approval or evaluation of the supposed and intended results of the Pink Patch

            - No scientific or medical claims to support the Pink Patch claims

            - It targets young women whose bodies might be more vulnerable to the unregulated and synthesized ingredients contained in the Pink Patch.

            - Does not include any guidelines for how to maintain a healthy weight once the young woman stops wearing the patch.

            - It encourages young women to be skinny and to do introduce potentially harmful substances into their bodies in order to achieve their dream bodies


            INGREDIENTS

            The Pink Patch contains, Fucus Vesiculosus , a type of seaweed, used in holistic medicine to reduce excess weight by increasing metabolism. It also contains yerba mate, a South American stimulant and hunger suppressor and lecithin, an emulsifier that is claimed to re-proportion your body weight. The ingredients in the Pink Patch are absorbed into the skin and are time released throughout the day.


            FOOD and EXERCISE

            Even though there is no formal diet or exercise plan you should follow while wearing the Pink Patch, you are encouraged to eat a low-fat and low-calorie diet and exercise in order to be see the intended weight loss results.


            EXPENSE

            A one-month supply of the Pink Patch costs $49.95. There is also a one-week free trial offer as well. The Pink Patch can be ordered from the product’s website.


            CONCLUSION

            The Pink Patch is a dietary supplement that has not been approved or evaluated by the FDA, therefore its effectiveness and safety cannot be validated. Also, be warned of any supplement that claims to shed pounds by simply putting a sticker on your arm. Moreover, since this product is targeted specifically to young women, it promotes the pressure for women to be skinny by doing whatever they can to achieve their perfect body even if that means taking a product that is unregulated and potentially harmful. As with any new drug or supplement, consult with your medical doctor before taking the Pink Patch

              My friend ordered the free trial of it. She said she didn't feel any different at all! Then she canceled her account with them but they still charged her account for the product they send out if you don't cancel your account within so many days. She had to wait to get the product then return it THEN she got a refund. She was pretty pissed about it.

                I tried this it doesn't work. I think its a waste of time and money. And for the people that it does work for, I think it makes your heart race and makes you all jittery. I would stay away from it. Plus it gets really stuck to your skin. Ouch!
