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.

When reading all the comments I guess thats why I can't get them in California. California might suck at times but at least they don't let us try stupid things that harm us.

It is easy to cancell online, I just did and they have sent me confirmation too. As for the patches, its still early days as I'm only in my second day of using it. I must say though that they do make me feel a bit like when I was taking NowSlim, which made me lose weight, but made me feel sick so I stopped. With the patches I do feel warmer and more energetic if nothing else. I will see if I lose weight first before I order for real. My advice to anyone wishing to try patch, Make sure you don't have high blood pressure or are taking other medication. Good luck all!

I started these as my friend ordered a pack so we halved these I have been on these now for almost 2 weeks. Bit sceptical at first but within a day or two I noticed the reduction in appetite as working in office I found myself getting into the habit of sitting at my desk snacking...... no longer I may add. I dont feel half as hungry as I used to. I have lost a bit of flab. I dont do scales i judge weight loss thru the way my clothes fit me. I havent had the usual lethargic and jittery feeling you get when you dont eat enough and need to run for the nearest choccie biscuit or Mars Bar to give you that sugar rush before you pass out. Now because i it has been 2 weeks I think my stomach may have shrunk slightly. On Sat evening I ordered a pizza with my friend had two slices and felt full not finishing my food a problem i have never had in the past, this is something I am noticing more and more.....less I eat, the less I am able to eat - dont know if this makes sense. I am genuine customer and I have read these posts with all the different comments all I can say Psychological or not everyone is different. This might not work for some but it has done for me. I feel great if your open minded give them a try... nothing to lose.

I would not let the automatic payments put you off, they can be cancelled. I have read that a lot of people are angry about this but they do tell you on the website, it just shows how important it is to read things properly first. I ordered my free trial and sent them an email stopping the subscription straight after. I got my trial and i have had no subscription problems.

I've was looking into signing up for the Pink Patch free trial before I saw all of the above comments concerning the automatic payments for the following month's supply, but I'm still intrigued by the product. Lots of people seem to be reporting back weight losses of around 3-4 lbs in the first few days, but weight tends to naturally fluctuate by these sort of amounts anyway. I was just wondering whether many people who have actually completed the month (or longer) have experienced further steady weightloss? And whether they would recommend it?

Hey all, I just got my free sample today and after skimming through everyone's comments i am not sure if i want to try it anymore. Anyhow, my problem is just with my stomach after my kids my stomach turned into a gut. My sister says i have a tire around my waist. (not funny to me!) which is why i want to know has the patch helped anybody with belly fat? Thats my only problem i try to do crunches but i don't see a change. The aid says it targets problem areas has this been true for anybody?

I got the free trial and nothing changed. My skin got all irritated where it was and didnt loose a single pound! ITS A SCAM!!!! Come to find out I "supposedly" signed up for a month to month membership. When I called to cancel they told me to send it back and I would be refunded in FULL regardless of their policy because I had never received the letter stating about the membership (the Pink Letter). Wrong... they didn't refund my shipping and handling. Not to mention they hung up on me too!! I advise everyone that before they sign up to get something for "FREE" that they read very carefully every single word. Because the only thing Ive lost in my money and my patience!

Just so everyone knows, losing 3-4lbs in the first couple of days is exciting in itself. However that wight is mostly water weight and it doesn't reflect hardly any actual weight loss. If you even read down this far haha, but if you keep eating healthy the weight you lose will be a reflection of actual weight loss. Go you!
