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.

I've just ordered a free trial of the Pink Patch and am quite excited. Lots of people are saying that it's for people who are too lazy to get off their butt and exercise. Well it's not always that easy. If you're busy with work and kids, it's hard to get time in for yourself! And I find it quite hard to give up everything that's bad for you. If i can spend some extra money, and lose a few pounds without having to find the time, Well that works for me. (by the way it's lose wight, not loose) Good luck girls

I'm sad to see yet another diet craze hitting the streets! I've wasted so much money on pills, patches, cabbage soup diets and slimfast but finally i have discovered that the best way to lose way and look great is to get moving and cut calories. I eat 1500 calories a day of whatever i fancy, ten packets of crisps not the best idea though, and then go to the gym to burn at least 300 off. Yes ladies it means sweating and exercising but guess what......i've lost 6lbs in 3 weeks, look more toned and am fitter than ever. Do yourselves a favour and stop wasting money and change your lifestyle. Keep that weight off for good!

I have lost a lot of weight in the last year through exercise and a low fat diet, but gained about a stone recently which I would like to lose, I think the pink patch is good for a kick start - it's not a miracle cure for weight lose, it's not something that is long term but it is something that can get a few pounds off and make you feel good,It has for me curbed my appitite, If your anything like me...I need to see I am losing a bit, feel good and then I am able to motivate myself into exercising and eating healthy again, So far I haven't any problems with the company, I e-mailed them and cancelled my subscription before my free trial even came, and it arrived the next day. If you read the small print, do as it says and use it as a stepping stone to lose a bit of weight then I think it's a great product.

I've just received my free sample of the pink patch, and successfully cancelled the monthly supply. I just emailed them at customercare@thepinkpatch.co.uk asking to cancel, and the next day they sent me a confirmation email cancelling my monthly supply! I've just stuck the first patch on now, I usually have a HUGE appetite, though I'm not overweight. I'll let you know whether it works or not! :)

To be honnest i think this "new pink patch" is not very fair to women. If women want to losse weight, it is down to the indivual to do that. I think to something liek this there is going ot be side effects so if you want my advise i really wouldn't as it could leave you with cramps and pains in you lower back and side. If you want to looses weight, do it the normal, eat a balanced diet and exersice regulary, that's all you need to do. YOU DON'T NEED TO USE THIS, IT IT TO GET MONEY OUT OF YOU! what they are doing is they know that all women really want to do is to have a perfect figure, so there making this nonsece pick patch to get money from women. don't fall for it!

REPLY TO SALLYB: I have tried the patch and am still using the patch and its working for me, as within 2 weeks i had lost nearly half a stone. as it did help curb my cravings & i was not eating as much as i use to & could eat the same size portions as before. And to all those people on here that are scared to try it because of peoples remarks, then the only way you will know if it works is to try it yourself. But be sure to read the terms and conditions which are shown to you when placing the order & then on your pink letter, but otherwise if you dont you will be billed and it will be your own fault. Also in answer to GSB if was really your fault for not reading the t&c's and so by making a complaint to the citizens advise bureau won't get you anywhere as it was YOUR FAULT! so how can they do something about it if it is not the companies problem? Maybe next time everyone should just read the terms & conditions to save all this agro!

I am using pink patch for 5 days so far and dont have any appetite at all, therefore feel a bit week. Remember even if you dont want to eat, you still need to eat 3 small meals a day and drink lots of water. It consits of powerfull appetite controller and if you dont drink a lot you will have a headache. Also remember that the body fat would not be gone from body for 1 week at all, it is just water you r loosing. You need healthy meals which will increase your metabolism and make u born fat. I reccomend using pink patch for 1 mounth and learn yourself how not to snack and then you should remove it and try not to snack by yourself

Concerned

I have been reading up on each of the ingredients and would urge people to use Wikipedia to look at what each of the ingredients does before you go ahead and assume it's all natural so ok. There are a lot of stimulants in these "natural" ingredients which will naturally suppress appetite and "enegerise" you - potentially with downsides. I guess this is why they say not to drink more than one cup of coffee a day as well. After reading this site - checking the ingredients and not being sure about how it would effect my contraceptive pill I'm voting no to trying it. Ingredients for your reference: Fucus Vesiculosus, Extrac, 5-HTP, Guarana, Zinc Pyruvate, Yerba Mate, Flaxseed Oil, Lecithin, L-Carnitine.

Ive been using the pink patch for 2 weeks now, seen no difference in weight loss. However I must say they work excellently with suprressing the appetite! I fink they are good so far, only negative side affect is the slight very mild rash u get after removing the patch. ive got 2 more weeks on them left. ill get back to u guys.

REPLY TO TC: Whether you think I am dying or exaggerating is your opinion of my comment. The whole purpose of this strand is for people who have tried it to leave their personnal experience details. Your opinion of my experiences don't counts for anything really as I am giving my exact account of trying the patch to other people. The purpose of the strand is regarding the pink patch. gave the patch a try and that's how it physically felt for me. By your comment to others, "Don't be influenced by some on these remarks", you are contradicting the use of this strand. How about commenting on the pink patch and what it did for you and not others experiences?

"you're all clueless" needs to just keep the crude remarks to him/her self. But I just go the weeks trial today and I already feel it. Its kind of a weird sensation that I'll have to get used to, but I'll let you know if it works. I work at a deli and all i do is eat all day. I'm not a large person at all. I only wanted to try it to lose those couple extra pounds. But.. to everyone.. just be safe. Don't get too carried away with the weight loss fad. Eat healthy. Eat in moderation. And excercise. This patch is just more of a little helper than a cure. Good luck. :)

I tried the free trial and thought it was great, I've lost a few pounds, was in a great mood despite the stressful time I'm having at the minute, and did not notice any negative side effects. While waiting on my month's supply afterwards however, I felt really down and attributed this to not wearing the patch. I've received my month's supply yesterday and will probably continue wearing it for the month, but I feel a little uneasy about how my mood changed during the last week. I wore the patch with sceptism and was genuinely surprised that it worked, so can this still be put down to it being a placebo?

I think that the pink patch did work and of course it wont work for everyone but to read some of these messages & to heard what people are writing (sally b)sounds like they are practically dying because of it which seems a little over exaggerated, as its an all natural ingredient & surely if you felt that ill first of all you wouldnt continue it. Also really its your own fault if you dont read the terms and conditions and if you dont read them then you deserve to be billed, because nowadays anyone with any common sense would read the small print! Anyway the only way you will find out what they are like is if you try it out yourself, dont be influenced by some on these remarks.
