“What is the apple patch diet? Is this an other one of those pyramid schemes?”
Well, the first thing I noticed when I went to the site applepatchdiet.net (the dot com version is a test site) was that it was almost completely geared toward attracting new salespersons. I couldn’t find any information about the patch on the site.
After a little bit of digging I found some individual web sites that had a little more “information”. The gist of the whole spiel is that main herbs in the patch are delivered transdermally (through the skin) where they work to increase your metabolic rate while decreasing your hunger.
As for the herbs involved, they’re basically seaweed, berries and a little bit of menthol. The only ingredient that’s even a little bit interesting to me is the fruit garcina. If it works, it probably works by blocking an enzyme your body uses to store fat. But, you can find this supplement in any big health food store for far less money than you’re going to spend on a fancy patch.
Does this make the apple patch diet a scam? Well, it makes it a product I wouldn’t spend my money on or recommend. But you tell me. What do YOU think of the apple patch diet? Did it work for you?
