I have an acquaintance who is a distributor of the It Works wraps. She has had amazing results using a combination of 4 or 5 of their products so I thought I'd give it a try and support her. Unfortunately, the wraps did not work for me. Not one single inch lost.
I am a healthy, active 30 something with about 15 pounds to lose after 3 kids, pretty much all accumulated in my mid section, so that is where I put my wraps. I currently juice two times a day, alternating in one protein shake every 2-3 days. I eat about 85% vegan, adding chicken and small amounts of real butter occasionally - and slowly transitioning to gluten-free, about 50%. I exercise 6 times a day, alternating yoga, pilates weight lifting and running. And I generally drinking 4-6 bottles of water a day. I say all of this to give a detailed picture of my lifestyle.
I did 2 full boxes of wraps, that's 8 wraps total. Followed the instructions to a tee, after all, I paid a pretty penny for these wraps and I wanted to make sure I got the very best results. They just didn't work for me, and they don't work for everyone. The reps will try to tell you that it is user error, I can assure you, in my case it was not. I wish the company would just admit that these wraps are not for everyone. And unfortunately, they offer no way out of their Loyal Customer program for 3 months, other than to pay $50, if you are not satisfied with their product.
I will say this, I have horrible stretch marks, and they have lightened quite a bit since using the wraps, but not enough to keep using the product at the current price for the amount of results. The defining gel, which is a little bit less expensive, might give the same results with my stretch marks, so I am going to switch my auto ship to that product for my third and final Loyal Customer shipment, and I plan to cancel after that.
My suggestion would be to go to one of the rep parties and do a demo wrap, usually they cost $25 and see if you have results from that. I did not have any results, but the rep said to wait 72 hours and measure again, she even marked my skin so I could measure correctly. No results for me. If you have results after just one wrap (many do), then I would try it, if you don't, chances are will not have results with continued use.
I want to add one more thing. The woman I know who sells the It Works products has had great results using a combination of several of their products, and the testimonies and pictures she share had similar stories, so if you are looking to lose a ton of weight, you will most likely have to combine several of their very expensive products to see big results. But if you just want to lose a few inches to fit in your jeans better, the wraps could probably help with that (for some people).
