 Weight Loss Patches- The Latest Diet Fad to Beat the Bulge

While nicotine patches enable smokers to kick the butt, the latest fad is weight loss patches, already popular with celebrities including Paris Hilton.

The patches look like a 2in square sticking plaster and can be attached to any part of the body.


The sticky pads are claimed to suppress hunger pangs and help the body burn off fat.

Makers SlimWeight claim their new patches are a better option to lose weight because the ingredients are absorbed through the skin and straight into the blood.

"Every week there's a new fad diet out. Thousands of Britons struggle to lose weight and these complex diets add unnecessary hassle to the process," the Daily Express quoted a spokesman as saying. By simply applying one weight loss patch a day you can go about your routine safe in the knowledge that you're burning fat and reducing your cravings.

"The patches work by increasing the body's ability to burn the fat it receives through food, while at the same time reducing cravings to binge eat. You consume less fat and the fat you do consume is metabolised quicker," he added.
