How Does a Diet Patch Work?

It's likely that you've heard of patches to help people quit smoking and birth control patches, but now there is actually a diet patch that is designed to help people lose weight. When the patch is used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise, users can expect to lose 1 to 3 pounds per week.

Diet Patch Basics

In order for the diet patch to help you, you first need to stick it directly onto your skin. There are ingredients in the diet patch that penetrate the skin to help curb your appetite. One of the main ingredients is Fucus Vesiculosis, which is a type of seaweed that is used to help rev up the metabolism and get the body burning more calories throughout the day. The basic idea is that while wearing the diet patch, you will be able to control your food portions more easily at meal time.

Diet Patch Side Effects

So far, there have not been any side effects reported while using the diet patch. However, the diet patch is like many other weight loss products available in that it has not been evaluated by the FDA.

The diet patch is not something you can just slap on and expect to lose weight. In fact, diet patch manufacturers instruct users to eat a low-calorie diet and exercise regularly to see the best weight loss results. Wearers of the diet patch are also advised to avoid alcohol and limit caffeine to just one cup per day while wearing the patch. Drinking plenty of water is important as well, because it will keep you hydrated and help to lower your appetite.

Overall, the diet patch looks as if it may be a good contender in helping people lose weight. The important thing all users must realize is that the diet patch won't lose the weight for you. You still need to control your food portions and eat less calories during the day which is what the diet patch is designed to help you do. Adding regular exercise will get you the results you're looking for even faster.

    I bought this and have used it for 2 days now. I am already seeing a weight change by 2 pounds after wearing for the first 24 hours; I wont know how much I have lost in 48 hours until I wake up in the morning. I exercise 6 days a week for about an hour each day and am currently enrolled in Weight Watchers. I was at a plateau and tried everything to get the weight loss started again and nothing was showing significant results. The patch seems to have jump started my system again, but after about a week of use I think I will know for sure how well it works. I do agree that if you think the patch will lose weight for you, you should not waste your money, because in order to lose weight it takes effort.
