Aside from any placebo effect it's extremely unlikely to do anything. best way to lose weight is to eat healthily (it's not just about eating less) and take more exercise.

I sincerely doubt it.

Eat less, eat more healthily and do more excercise. There is no magic cure.

How can you say that without any knowledge of it or how it works? Typical knee jerk re-action. What facts have you got to back this up?

If it worked, it wouldn't be 'alternative medicine' available on the internet - it would be regulated properly and only available through your doctor. However, I can't find a single peer-reviewed journal article with anything to say about it.

That's one fact for starters.

And you must be a desperate overweight person hoping for a miracle cure that doesn't exist?

Hmm...the lack of any research base for what it claims to do! The reality is if it was a legitimate aid there should be randomised control trials published in a reputable journal. This should all have been done before the patch was even released to the general public! It wouldn't just be spammed to everyone's junk mail.

A little harsh, but not to worry....you've made yourself look like a jockey.

You don't need to be a GP to be able to critically appraise the evidence put before you. When there is no evidence it's even easier. Although the placebo effect should not be underestimated!

LMAO!!!:roll:

Am I alone in thinking the "Pink Patch" diet sounds a bit ... naughty:oops: ... but nice:thumbsup:
#15
Hehe no, I just know how proper drugs are tested and marketed. As both Tankos and I said, there is no evidence that this drug has been formerly tested using randomised controlled trials. Therefore, there is no evidence that it works.

I would honestly say it's just "another diet scam". Why don't you try weight Watchers, i've just had a baby and lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks :) Don't waste your money and put your trust into something that is likely not to work x

heard great things about weight watchers - if i wanted to lose weight, that's how i'd do it. It's all about the support network.

I totally agree, unfortunately the society we live in makes all of us weight conscious. This leaves people open to exploitation from scammers offering a 'quick fix.'

I totally agree but there was no evidence put before anyone. Actually looking into it and finding the main active ingredient is Fucus vesiculosus also known as Bladderwrack would have been a start. This is a seaweed know for it's help in weight loss but also has some warnings and I would steer clear of it because of it's high iodine content and it's common contamination with heavy metals.

My point is that no-one bothered to provide any evidence or reasons for their spontaneous slating of the product so how could that be helpful to anyone, especially the OP. Annoys me when people are so quick to criticise just for the sake of it acting like they are an authority on it. :viking:

This might interest you, its about negative calorie food
A 25 calorie piece of broccoli (100 gram) requires 80 calories to digest, resulting in a net loss of 55 calories from the body fat!! Thus, the more you eat, the more you lose weight!!!
heres the link to some information

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fucus_vesiculosus Pretty decent entry about Fucus vesiculosus

Just been reading around and apparently the 'free trial' costs £5.95 to deliver and they set up a subscription which takes £40.60 2 weeks later. Sounds like a scammer to me.

I haev been getting this email for months now.
I wouldn't bother as someone has pointed out there is no quick fix, its about changing your lifestyle and habits, and general associations you have with food.
Diets, pills and potions are all just short term solutions and as soon as you stop using them, the weight you lost will be put back on.
Also these kind of email generally tend to be scams, ready to make a few fast bucks off people's vunerabilities. There is no way anyone is going to get the 'airbrushed' figure of the woman in that ad, even tho its what many women strive to look like.
If you still want to give it a go, why not enquire about this product with your local GP before taking it. I know some diet pills have compounds which are used in amphetamine type drugs such as speed. Be careful my friend took some diet pills called something like 'T5', she lost the weight but she was constantly buzzing around like a head case, hoovering at 11 at night and stuff. She was told they contained a compound similar to speed in them - hence her hyper ways!
Needless to say she doesn't take them anymore, Im glad because some of theses pills can become addictive and make you very ill in the long run.
I hope I haven't come across as patronising in anyway, as that is not my intention.
If you really want to loose the weight, keep a level head, seek medical advise and go from there.
Good luck. :)

This is my point - there is a complete lack of evidence for this "drug". I could not find a single controlled study mentioned in a journal article. Therefore I have to conclude that it has no effect.
