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 got the free trial, and emailed them to cancel the subscription. I got an email back saying it had been cancelled and another shipment would not be sent. 2 days later, I got an email saying my month's supply has been shipped. I can't afford this, and now I can't afford my rent this month.

Don't know if this is a coincidence or not but I loved the pink patch and lost a lot of weight with it then. After a couple of months I got a boil in my ear canal - never had anything like before ever!! Then I had a bleeding ovarian cyst - again never had anything like that before. Then found out through a friend about someone else who had been on pink patches for a couple of months and had a ruptured ovarian cyst! Coincedence? Feel a bit scared to use them again. Has anyone else had any side effects?

I just started using the patch this week! So far I'm satisfied! I'm not going to say its a wonder drug or anything but I have noticed a difference in my appetite.. When I eat its like I don't really "care" and I know when to stop eating! I also noticed a difference in my over all mood.. Its almost like it gets in your head and makes you feel good about yourself!! If this keeps up I'm going to be a regular patch girl!!

I am on my 2nd day and feel real bad, tired, metal taste in my mouth and nausea. I think if I don't feel better by tomorrow this will be my 2nd and last day!!! BTW - I think I feel hungrier.

I tried it and lost nearly a stone in about 5 weeks. Might just be a mental thing but hey, you pay more for a gym that you don't end up using :)

DO NOT DO IT! They continue to keep sending it and taking the money from your bank. I've had to cancel my card to stop it and the stupid thing doesn't work anyway!

I haven't tried it, but i am planning to. I think that it does different things for different people. Like your weight for example. If you do take it, i think you should eat more healthier, it might give you a weight loss boost :] Good luck, ladiess

I am into the second week of using the Pink Patch and I am delighted with the results...I am a qualified Clinical Nutritionist and feel that as with all so called "fads" the results differ from each individual...what suits one might not suit another...we all know that healthy eating and regular exercise are the key to achieving our goals..but a helping hand and an extra boost in energy must surely be a bonus!

DONT DO IT, ITS A TOTAL CON, TRIED IT 4 A MONTH, EXCERCISE EVERY DAY AND LOST NOTHING. DO NOT BE CONNED. JOIN WEIGHTWATCHERS, IT COSTS LESS AND HELPS MORE.

Called Customer Service today and it took 4 minutes for them to answer the phone, but I think I did manage to cancel my subscription, even though I did e-mail them 2 days ago and still no reply. I think the best thing to do when cancelling is to call and get a name of who you spoke to. I spoke to Sharn (I know that the spelling is wrong) today, but only time will tell if this has worked....

I had the trial pack and felt a boost in my energy levels and general happiness, also after 1 week I lost weight, I dont own scales so I dont know how much, but it is visible.. had a week off them and felt really down, bit worrying...then my monthly supply came and im back on them feeling ace, just been shopping and bought a size down, honestly, i have got a lot to lose though 4 stone ish so maybe it comes off quicker when you are very overweight, im 39 years old, and other than the worry they may be addictive, i am over the moon with them..janey x
