Can you really lose weight or inches with hemorrhoid cream and plastic wrap? I did some research on this process and found that this is pretty common among pageant contestants, body builders and military recruits, so I decided to give it a try.
1 tube (newly purchased) Preparation H
1 roll of plastic wrap
I first took my measurements in 3 different areas of my mid section and weighed myself prior to starting the process.
I applied a generous amount of Preparation H to my mid section, then began wrapping it with plastic wrap. I did 2 layers of wrap as I felt it slipping out of place right away. I put my pajamas on over the wrap and went to sleep for the night.
Having any part of your body wrapped in plastic wrap overnight makes you very warm, and as someone who has frequent “glistening” spells this was a little bothersome for me, but I made it through the night.
First thing in the morning I removed my wrap, wiped off the excess cream and took my measurements.
I did in fact lose a total of 3 inches in my mid section and my weight was down by 1/2 lb. I was not sure this was in fact from the wrap or just the normal body difference between evening and morning, so I went about my morning as usual eating and drinking then took my measurements again and they were in fact the same as my evening measurements.
Is this a miracle weight loss process…I don’t think so, maybe if you want to lose a couple of inches and be hungry and dehydrated this would work, but since I don’t have any upcoming beauty pageants or body building competitions diet and exercise are probably the way to go!

* sigh * Bummer. Had it worked, I’d have permanently slept in Prep H! Back to diet and exercise…
