We find out if a body wrap will help you lose weight. Plus we ask are humans the only animals that practice dental hygiene?
I know some wrestlers like exercising in watertight clothing, and sweats. I always thought it was just to loose "water weight".
Please get your facts correct on application and procedure before talking about this product. Thank you Patricia, Wed, 29th May 2013
Hmmm very interesting to read. I'm a bit confused though, if it is water loss why do they say to drink loads of water straight after your treatment? Thats for Shrinking violet wraps anyway. Surely this would go against the rules if it is water loss? Anna, Fri, 4th Oct 2013
I spent a fortune on a course of the shrinking violet body wrap, complete waste of money, only lost fluid by sweat, lost more cash than fat ! Sammy, Sun, 3rd Nov 2013

well now there are independent clinical trials so all above proven to be rubbish Emma Jenson, Wed, 21st May 2014
Hi guys I have had one of these wraps this morning, lost around 5 inches which I wasn't majorly chuffed about as have lost more doing the aloe Vera diet. Anyway my question is, I haven't had much advice, aftercare guidance, apart from don't exercise for 12 hours, drink fizzy pop or tea coffee and alcohol. Should I be mindful of what I eat etc, I felt ok having it done but am beginning to feel a little sick. It was 11:30 this morning. Thanks guys Beki, Sat, 12th Jul 2014
Dear University of Cambridge students, please note that nobody will LOOSE anything, the word is LOSE. One would think that being educated at such an establishment as this you would also be able to spell simple words. This does not bode well for whatever kinds of scientists you want to turn out to be.

Of course the question is if you have lost fat then where has that fat gone? It still is in your body somewhere so you haven't lost anything regardless to how you spell it:) I had this done and have to admit its extremely disappointing to part with your money and see no adequate results. I too felt sick after, I was told I'd lost a few inches but, as I was not the one who did the measuring those results take a lot of trust, and I also left with 'deep cell dehydration', apparently a side affect of the treatment which looked like very bad cellulite:/ Lets just say I wouldn't bother with it again nor recommend..

I can't find anything on this independent trial apart from beauticians selling the treatment charging for 'clinical trials' without any kind of control group. Those aren't trials, those are observation and you can't prove cause and effect - need to have people doing the exact same things as far as diet and exercise go with double-blinded tests of the active wrap and a placebo. Have tried to find further details and found nothing at all beyond a whole bunch of people claiming that independent clinical trials have been done. Carlos, Sun, 12th Oct 2014
I had a shrinking violet body wrap and contrary to what you've said about e I actually did lose half a stone after the first treatment. I was sceptical at first too but I decided to give it a go and with no other diet or exercise or healthy eating etc I DID LOSE 7 lbs the next day and the day after that lost a further 5 lbs from just my stomach area alone.
