Pink Patch

This little sticker can potentially provide weight loss.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

First there were patches to help you quit smoking, then birth control, 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, responsible 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.

DIET 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.

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.

Ok the patch works for me and I am a big sceptic! My daughter ordered some and said she had more energy and less cravings, so I tried one. I did not know that there was any claim of a mood elevator, but I noticed the first day that I was not depressed and was in a much better mood than I had been, and I have much more energy and eat about half the amount of food I was eating. I will order more! I have had no side effects. If it is worth the $50 to feel better and have more energy, give them a try.

I have had a very good experience so far with the pink patch, I had a problem with my delivery (it is more of a post office issue than a pink patch issue as I have had other deliveries not show up before in the area where I live) Well I thought I would try my luck anyway and let them know that my 6mths supply had not shown up, there was no questions asked they just sent me another supply of patches that were rec'd in good order! I was very impressed. One thing i have noticed the patch stinks so strong, the first set of patches I bought didn't smell at all, but this new set stink urggh hehe

Well I was considering trying the patch but I really have to speak with my doctor. To all those who scream that we need to get off our fat and exercise and eat less. The reason I have to ask my doctor is because I have hypothyroidism. That means that my body doesn't know how to turn fats into energy. If it works out I may tell my friend with Grave's (which means that her throid worked so badly that they had to iradiate it). I hope that some people can think next time they mock a large person. I have a strict exercise routine and an annoyingly strict diet plan. I can't eat some foods that are really good like spinach, broccoli, strawberries and peaches because it may cause a goiter. I hope that this can help aid my weightloss but if my doctor says no I have to look into other options. I am in hell everyday because no matter how I hard I work I have to deal with jerks trying to tear me down. So if people give you crap just tell them to shove it. They can only make you feel bad if you let them. If this is working for you Grats if not talk to your doctor they usually have a good idea of how to help. Good luck to all! I will keep y'all updated on the doc!

I tried the trial week read the print and cancelled so far so good. I did though experience a benefit during the trial I felt better had more energy so I bought the 4 month offer, while my energy level is high and feel generally well I wake early and feel great but have not lost any weight and I feel bloated but not all the time. Soon I come to the end of my 4 month session whether a 1 a day is worth it only time will tell

It looks okay, but to be honest you can pick up concoctions similar to this in capsule form in the health shop for a lot less.

idkkk: You can't target weight loss over a specific area, just soldier on and it will come away eventually xx

I used the trial and I immediately noticed a difference. I don't know if it was a typical placebo effect or if it was the patch actually working, but I felt motivated and stimulated; I had energy to exercise. After the trial was over, I felt the drop in energy and my weight stabilized; I didn't lose or gain any more weight. I didn't cancel and decided to let the patches come in the mail, and I've lost so far another 5 pounds for a total of 8 pounds in a little over a month! I'm very satisfied with this product, just wish it wasn't so pricey.

I am not one to take anytype of diet pill or magic bean to help me lose weight. However I did try this and while it didn't help me lose weight it did help raise my energy level and stabalize my period. Which are two things I care about more than my weight. So i love it.

I have used the pink patch for the 14 day free trial. It did work and i lost 7lbs although i was eating healthily and exercising.As soon as i stopped using the patch i gained all the weight back on and more .I was eating exactly the same and exercising as what i was doing when wearing the patch. So DON'T use it. As soon as you stop using it you will gain it all back.

Hi. I am a boy and I am wondering if it is safe to use it for the opposite sex. I will not specify my age but I am under 18 and I want to know if it is totally safe.

Must say some of the negative comments have got to me. i ordered the free trial yesterday and have just got off the phone to cancel. she confirmed my details and ensured me she couldnt cancel the free trial (which i already knew) but has cancelled my membership and everything else. I asked for her name and she refused to give it to me. also i asked for the managers name and she wouldnt give out anything. am just a bit worried now that it might be one of those where i have to cancel my credit card details as i know they have them on their system now. *fingers crossed its completely cancelled*

This shows it's a load of BOLLOCKS.

what a load of crap. Since using the pink patches for 3 weeks, aswell as healthy eating, I have managed to gain 8lbs, not really a good advertisement for 'the pink patch'. I wouldn't advise anyone to waste their money as I have.

i think this program totally depends on you body, age and expectations. i'm a stay home mom, my husband is a doctor and i have heard stories about these prouducts i would recomend that you only take them if you are extreemly over weight they are NOT FDA aproved and that is probally for a good reason they are not suitabe for anyone to be using. i have a medical degree and i had reasearched some of these prouducts when i was in college 2 years ago and many of the drugs going into these are experimental mixtures they may not show short term side effects but you should be careful in using the prouducts for more than a few months at a time. some of the chemicals in these prouducts show kidnee failure in other clinical studies published by the FDA. with any diet pills or patches you should do your research and get all the facts go to different websites and call your doctor talk to them or a nurse they can be very helpful. good luck and be careful!!!

I'm on day 3 of the Pink Patch trial now, and I have to say I've not noticed a great change in my moods, or appetite. I'm still craving sweet foods, like I usually do. However, I have noticed that once I've started eating, I do feel full a little earlier - this time last week, i could have easily eaten 4-8 chocolate eclairs, whereas I bought 2 yesterday, and only ate one (and struggled at that!) I've not weighed myself yet - but my work trousers are a bit looser ( though I've started working out recently too..) I'll let you know about the weight when I've weighed myself, and I'll try to keep you updated! :)

Hey Everyone--- Try the "Stop stuffing your face" diet. It really works. And exercise. That's all it takes. But seriously no "supplement" is going to work. Stop stuffing your face and eating crap and you will lose weight. Omg what a concept.
