Preparation - H
lol was watching miss america tell some of her secrets and she says using preparation H ( you know that hemmoroid stuff) helps body look slimmer when you put it on and then cover it up overnight. like for hips and thighs put it on, then put pantyhose on top and go to sleep. im gonna try it sometime!
she says it gives same results as those body wraps you get.

Huh, I bet that would work well. I have been known to put the preperation-h under my eyes to reduce puffiness, and it works great. You'll have to let me know how well it works after you try it!

Do it and let us know! Maybe you could take your measurements before bed and then again in the morning??

It works! of course its temporary, but my ex bf use to do this to cut off 2 inches for his tape test in the army. he'd coat his waist then wrap it tightly with saran wrap, then he'd have to wash really well to get rid of the smell. but really unless you have something you need to be slightly toned for a few hours, it does nothing longterm.

It works, Say you have like 1 inch on your belly that needs to be gone for a bodyfat taping (army). You smear that stuff on your stomach and wrap it with plastic wrap over night. Its just a bandaid, your don't loose that inch but it does suck your gut in for a while.

Do you have to wait for a couple of hours to bathe afterwards or can you shower first thing in the morning???

Well, of course it's temporary, you know, if it weren't they wouldn't need to sell the whole large tube for small hemroids .

I have read several articles that list the side effects of unsing Preparation H other than what it is intended for. The fact that you are reading this means that you are researching the use as well and that is good.
I would love to use the stuff myself. Like many people in todays society I have extra baggage around my mid section and I'm not overweight. However, I have read that it cause problems with your blood pressure. Having issues with your blood pressure is a serious condition that causes other serious health related problems.
Now, I dont know about you but I think being healthy and living far out weighs having a flatter stomach for only a couple of hours.
Hope this helps
