Do weight loss patches work?

Weight loss patches are a pretty new phenomenon, and at first glance seem to be the answer to everyone's prayers - a way to lose weight effectively without doing any work at all and not even changing your eating habits. Are you familiar with the phrase "If something seems too good to be true it probably is"? Check out to learn some truths before you take the plunge with a weight loss patch.

Truth One

If you can find a weight loss patch that works - and it's a big if - the chances are it would need to be prescribed by a doctor. Losing weight in the amounts promised by these things can cause serious health problems, and for this reason your doctor will want to run through a lot of tests etc beforehand. You may not want to hear the truth, but the fact is if you start dropping 35lbs in a month like they promise, your body is going to suffer some serious side effects from your weight loss patch.

Truth Two

Most of the commercial ones will have little to no effect. And if a weight loss patch does have some positive effects, it's not going to be from the "herbal" extracts or the tea leaf extracts or whatever else they claim has magic powers. The fact is, if you check the ingredients you'll notice that alongside the herbal stuff, most of them will contain large amounts of caffeine, ephedra, or some derivative of a substance like this. These chemicals speed your heart up, which in turn causes your body to burn slightly more calories than usual to keep up with it. Let me ask you though, if you are overweight, is overworking your heart like that the smartest way to be losing weight?

Truth Three

Many of them are unlicensed. Because of the nature of the internet, you can see these weight loss patches advertised for sale everywhere, much like you can with Viagra and other stimulants. It can be very hard to tell whether the substance you are buying is legal in your area or even if it has been approved for use on humans. If you have even the slightest doubt, don't buy it!

Truth Four

If you are lucky enough to see a result after using a weight loss patch, it won't last. Your body is only reacting to the chemicals being absorbed through your skin. As soon as you stop wearing the patch, you'll go back to how you were. Unless you plan on wearing a weight loss patch for the rest of your life, you may want to consider a different method of weight loss. Patches just won't help long term!
