I agree with a lot of the other posters...it's probably just water weight and toxins. I can see how losing a couple of inches that quickly would be cool, as long as you're continually eating right and exercising at the same time. Wouldn't pay $25 for it though, personally I would go to Walmart and see what they have there first in the fitness or the medical section. I would guess it's a lot cheaper there....
Oh btw I saw something similar there today. It's like a slimmer that also does the water weight thing. So regardless of the weight loss you can always wear it under your clothes to smooth problem areas. It was about $10 but I don't remember what it was called.
Good luck!

I don't know this for sure, but it sounds like the wraps you can find in the fitness section at walmart for $5. Works the same way... sucks out water weight. I've had good results with mine,but you have to keep in mind that it is water weight and will come back.

sometimes its true you can gain inches, its all about how many toxins are in your body, like i did them and for every mountain dew i drank i drank an extra bottle of water. same for if i smoked a cigarette. woman that dont put many toxins in thier system get A LOT better results

Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.

Tried it, but actually gained inches. They said it was normal on your first time. One of the main thing is constantly feeding yourself with water. I had to pee every 5 min and I figured that it was working just like a water pill.

the thing that i really really like about it was it proved to me that my waist can be smaller. in my head i think that i cant shirnk like that no matter what. but if i lose 10 lbs i COULD be that much smaller. even just 2 inches would put me into my old fav jeans. thats what made me want to do it. even knowing that the results wouldnt stick.

i actually have bought the wraps. its all about how many toxins you put into your body. i smoke so i didnt get that good of results but i did lose 2" around my waist but i got it back. you have to drink atleast half your weight in water (in oz ofcoarse, for example i weigh 200 so i had to drink 100 oz of water a day). i also smoke and drink soda so my results didnt stick. as long as you dont put any toxins in your body then the results stick longer. also, you dont have to do the wraps, they have defining gel that essentially does the same thing. (it helps bring the toxins out of your skin so its no exactly making you sweat... its just nasty stuff its taking out of your body.) if you buy the box of four as a loyal customer (you get one product a month for at least 3 moths.. after that you dont have to buy anything) then its only 59$. if you are seriously starting to eat right then i say go for it if you have the extra money. it doesnt make you lose wieght or fat tho, its just a toxin/water thing. if you want to know more you can message me and i can have my friend who goes to the IT Works semenars and is really into it.

I dont trust products that offer such great results because they are rarely long lasting or safe

I agree with CHUNKIMAMA. If you're going to spend money on a plastic material in hopes of losing weight, try to find a 5 below store (Or I'm pretty sure you might be able to order the products they carry online), and just get a sauna top for 5 bucks. Or go ahead with the plastic wrap. Nothing can "suck" the fat cells out of your body. If it could, plastic surgeons would be out of business and everybody would be supermodel thin (Ick! I really hate that look)

When I was in high school the wrestlers would wrap themselves in plastic wrap at night before a match when they had to weigh in. It's just water weight. If you decide to do it... I wouldn't pay $25 for it.

Im pretty sure it has absolutely nothing to do with actual fat loss, but you can lose and inch or two of water weight if you hydrate properly because it sweats it out.
