I'm guessing these rings are no different than weight loss teas or the banana diet. Not too long ago, there was a huge Japanese weight loss craze involving bananas. the Daily Spark even did a blog on it !!
i did, actually, buy one of these rings, i think it was about $6. i thought it was pretty (i'm not one for jewelry, but if i like it, i'll get it), and if it did work, hey, an added bonus. of course i was skeptical, fast weight loss without the work or the sensible diet doesn't happen. i do exercise daily and eat mostly healthy foods (i won't lie). acupressure works by pressing on certain nerves that correspond to different parts of the body. i haven't tried that before, either. but i'm also curious about things that i don't understand. pressure points in the fingers correspond to different parts of the brain. possibly it's all psychosomatic, but when i exercised with the ring on, i noticed myself focusing more on that part of the body that i was trying to work on. because i was consciously thinking about it, i got a better work-out. yes, they are cheaply made, heck, they're only a few dollars, you're not going to get titanium. and i have heard of people breaking them trying to get them to fit (one size fits all is never really the case, is it?). apparently, the gold ones will turn your finger green, but that's because it's fake gold. i'm sure it will never work for everyone, some are too lazy, some are not focused enough, and some just plain won't ever believe in what they can't see. but for me, it made me think more about what i was intending to do. so, in that sense, i guess it did work. and i got something pretty to wear while i do it. hope that helped.

For real? I guess there must be people who would buy into such nonsense so some company will try anyway to make money.
Sounds like a load of crap unless the ring goes around your mouth.

I am with you 100% on this , there is no way they could work . I was just curious to what others thought as well . I know that they are just something that someone came up with to make money off of . I would hate for anyone to pay for something such as this and they have there hopes up to it working . We all know the only way to a permanent weight loss it takes hard work and determination. Not to mention healthy and good food choices and exercise on a daily basis.
I haven't heard of them, but there doesn't seem to be any science behind it to prove that it works. It looks like another diet/weight loss type gimmick and you would probably be better off to save your money.

Thanks for your replies everyone . I heard about them sometime ago but never did check into them . So I was just wondering it anyone has or has tried the things.
