Worked for me – no side effects, lost 15 pounds, April 25, 2010
This review is from: Le Patch 2 PACK 2 Month Supply 60 Patches Natural Weight Loss Bajar de Peso (Health and Beauty)
I’m 37 and have struggled with my weight my whole life. Despite cutting out diet sodas (which can increase food cravings), and joining a gym, I felt hungry most of the day and my cravings were sabotaging my efforts. Out of desperation, I started looking for a natural supplement to get my appetite in check. After doing some research, I opted to try a seaweed-based patch. Seaweed is very high in iodine, which works with your hormones and thyroid to control appetite and weight. By the 3rd day I wore the patch, I was sitting at my desk at 2pm and realized I hadn’t eaten lunch – I simply wasn’t hungry! Viola! I was eating smaller portions, feeling full faster, and not having all-day cravings.
The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) banned the sale of most of the weightloss patch products for several years due to what they said were unsubstantiated claims. I find this laughable, since they have not banned, for example, hoodia – which causes jitters and nausea, unlike the seaweed-based patches, which deliver a mineral we need to survive – and has a well-understood relationship to appetite and weight. After being unable to buy Le Patch in CVS anymore, I stopped using it – but over time my appetite came back, and I’ve gained 10 pounds recently, and I’m here to order Le Patch, being massively relieved it’s still possible to buy in the US. I can’t speak for other brands, but Le Patch is no scam – it’s common sense… Iodine + thyroid-produce hormones = appetite control. It may not work for everyone, but if you’re a ‘snacker’ and trying to lose weight, I recommend giving this a try.
