    Default Anyone tried those wrap things?

    You know the ones, "it works" or something? You wrap your stomach in this special film & its supposed to magically appear smaller. Sounds miraculous.

    Curious to know are they a waste of time or did they work miracles for you?

    They do not work. You get a short term change due to water loss, but no, nothing real. Sorry

    Yup, it's a pyramid selling scheme. I know someone that has fallen for it. It's all a bout recruiting people to sell the miracle treatment ( that's only claimed to be a miracle by the people actually selling it)
