With the increasing health awareness, easy diets are coming out of the market. Each of these diets claims quick weight loss. Often, people who do not have the time to go to the gym or to create a healthy menu resort to these diet products in the market.
There are a lot of fads in the market today – the latest Gucci bag, the latest Calvin Klein collection and of course, the latest Jenny Craig video. The latter seems to concern more and more people. This is not surprising. The media has finally helped in creating an awareness for obesity, not so healthy diet and lifestyle that seem to define the trend today.
The Weight Loss Patch – Effectiveness and Side Effects
One of these many products is the weight loss patch which promotes easy weight loss. There are a lot of people who would raise their eyebrows over this weight loss patch. Are they effective? Marketers of the product claim that the patch has appetite suppressants which are released once you placed the patch on your skin. The chemicals on the patch would also trigger faster metabolism so that you would lose weight fast.
Does this work? Perhaps it does. But it is highly doubtful if this is one healthy weight loss method. Unlike healthy food intake and regular exercise, weight loss patch has side effects. You could develop ski problems and hyperthyroidism among others. It is also not advisable when you have diabetes, thyroid condition and hypertension.
