On Body Wraps

I usually don’t pay too much attention to commercials that I see on TV, but one recently caught my attention.

It featured a bunch of women all near climax over the results of their “body wraps.”

One woman exclaimed that she lost more than 56 inches.

Say what? Where did the 56 plus inches go? Are they tightly wrapped up in her innards, ready to pop back out at any time, producing a third boob, possibly in the middle of her forehead or under an armpit? Inches simply do not pack up and leave home, do they?

Another woman took delight in reporting that she lost half of her “old self.” I immediately wondered if that half included her brain.

Some sources say that body wraps work for about 48 hours. Then I guess Cinderella turns back into a pumpkin, eh?

Others swear by them.

None of the women in the commercial produced a “before” picture and none of them looked particularly wonderful as a result of the “wrapping.” There was no comparison to be made.

Nobody ever mentions the cost. I wondered how expensive this gimmick could become for those who indulge in it. My extensive research shows that they are not inexpensive.

Do you have proof that they WORK? Have you ever tried this method to lose weight? Would you?
