1. Quick-Fix Slimming Body Wrap- This wrap is a very controversial one, some people say it works for them and others (and a lot who have never tried it!)say it doesn't. I have tried it and it worked for me, but everybody's body is different. A lot of people in the military use this wrap to pass the Military PT Waist Test. This wrap shreds water weight and only last a couple of hours or less if you a lot drank water. This should only be used once in a while for special events or a quick fix. You can lose up to 3 or 4 inches just off your waist.
