I consider myself to be a pretty health conscious person.  I try to eat right and work out regularly, because I'm self centered like that, I want to have the best abs at the pool, what can I say at least I admit it.

I've been seeing a lot of talk about Skinny Wraps, and I've never tried them, so I'm turning to you for an answer before I go spending my money on it.

First, let's ask the questions, what the hell is a Skinny Wrap, what is really going on here?

You have to enter everything with a little doubt, so lets treat this like an Internet scam for a few minutes.

First there is absolutely no scientific evidence that "wraps" burn fat.  We should all by now know that the only way to burn fat is by diet and/or exercise.

After extended research, I've learned that Skinny Wraps are simply like a band-aid, except they've been soaked in herbs, aside from the seaweed or clay wraps.

So how is that helping your body burn fat and lose weight?

Well think about it for a second, it's not helping you burn fat!

So what's really going on here?

Well my immediate thought is these wraps are causing you to lose your water weight, the same thing can be accomplished if you wrap yourself with cling wrap, and it's not exactly safe for your body.

Your saying, "but Dallas, I've used the wraps while on the tread-mill and I really did feel better!"  Well I have an explanation for that.  Simply put, your working out!  Am I crazy?  I don't think so!

Wraps might temporarily tighten up your skin and cut a few inches off your belly, but the key word there is "temporarily".

I'm sorry for the Skinny Wrap advocates out there, but I'm telling you, this comes across as a scam to me.

I've tried a lot of different ways to lose weight and the only thing that worked for me was eating right and working out.

The fact is, all diets work, if you have the will power to stick with it!

Moving on, I may just be crazy.  I've never actually used skinny wraps, so I'm firing off the hip here and going off what I know just from experience in losing weight.  They may not be hurting anyone, but I sincerely do not see any way you can positively benefit from these wraps.  But again, this is just opinion, I'm looking for hard, real, local evidence.

3 years ago, I was 230 lbs and high 40's % body fat, now I'm 165 lbs and I sit in the high 10's in body fat.  I know what it's like to be over weight and un-happy with my looks and the only thing that changed it was my way of thinking.

But maybe you have used Skinny Wraps and they do work and you think I'm crazy, well, let's take a poll and see the results for ourselves and not some hard-sell a website is trying to give us.  Who knows, maybe they work after all!  I want YOU to tell me Your experience!
