I bought the 12 Size Zero Patches for $59.95 plus $6.95 delivery & processing fees.

My order no. is [protected]

I followed the directions faithfully. I even walked more and ate less.

After following the regimen of 6 days on and 1 day off. then repeat, to date I have lost ZERO pounds. Maybe that's what they really meant.

I am on a fixed income and cannot believe how stupid I was to spend almost $70.00 that I really couldn't afford to spend.

Now I know all about scams to seniors.

I sure could use my money back but I suppose that will never happen.

I too have not lost any weight. I infact gained 2 pounds!! I am quite active and haven't changed anything. I want my money back too and I will call my bank to help me if I don't get any satisfaction. They're good about geting refunds. Try going through your bank. I spent over $70.00 too That I don't have to waste.

Today is March 5, 2012. I have been trying since November, 2011 to receive the "MONEY BACK LIFETIME GUARANTEE" refund from The Healthy-Weight Loss Centers of America. I have spoken to Shandie (two times), Stephanie, Bill, Alex (two times), Victoria and Joshua. They all have given me faults and untrue information about my requested refund - "the check is in the mail", "we are doing the paperwork". "the check go out on Tuesday", "you will receive your check in 5 to 10 days", they have quoted me dates the checks were supposedly sent and refused to connect me with a supervisor, as I requested, and on and on. Their product did not work and the money back guarantee appears to be a true SCAM!!! I will pursue! MAD in San Diego

I purchased 12 patches to see if the patches really worked - NO NO NO like others I gained 5 lbs. with 6 patches. Is there a guarantee - because I would like a refund. Back to eating less - running out of time!!! I certainly won't recommend these patches to friends.

Come on people, don't be so vulnerable! Do you really think a patch can do all that? If you really read the brochure, you would see the grammar errors and a few words missing from the sentences. I knew it was a scam, saying "FOR THE FIRST TIME AVAILABLE IN THE USA", America is on top of everything. You can lose weight, you just need will power, faith, healthy meals and portions, exercise, limit sweets and snacks, drink water, clean out your colon and just enjoy life! Did it take you 2 days to gain 2 pounds? probably not, so why expect a patch to make you lose it. We as a society want to be thinner but we don't want to put in work, just enjoy your life, you can do it, I am!

I am so glad I came to this website, before ordering these patches. I have found that people know how hard it is for us to lose weight and will send the right information to get us. I thank all of yous for furnishing this information. A word of advice is to come online and check out these companies that claim they have found the correct products for weight lost, before sending your money. S.C is correct your bank will help you recover fro these scam companies, for I know my bank helped me recover my money in 2010 for a weight lost product!

Hi all, I am sorry that you have all ran into the same crap with this company. I came on line to search out the truth before jumping in with all of my big body just to get let down. I to am on a fixed income and am very heavy and am in need of help. The surgery seems to be the last hope. I tried weight watchers did everything right didn't cheat on points at all and gained 4 pounds in 3 weeks. Thank you all for your value information. You all have saved me money and another disappointment of no weight loss.

Thanks again

I purchased the Size Zero Patches ( 12 ) and followed the directions, 6 days on and 1 day off, even ate less, but lo and behold, i did not lose a pound, and also got a reaction to the patch. Why do u advertise 24 lb. weight loss ?????? I will never buy a thing from this company, and will not recommend it to my friends and family !!! I would like a refund for my total amt. $ 59.95 plus $ 6.95 del. & processing. I will go to the BBB !!

Thank-You, Diane Smith - Packer

I too am glad that I checked this company out BEFORE I wasted money on the patches. I guess it is true that the only genuine way to lose weight (and it won't cost a tremendous amount of money), is by eating healthy foods and moving your body!!!

I too was actually considering taking the chance of ordering these patches. Kept hearing the "If it's too good to be true, it is" in my head, as I know better than to think there is a quick fix to losing 30 - 35lbs. The fix is in diet and exercise, and getting the motivation to make it happen. Told myself I at least had to take a look at what I could find on line about the company, and just as I thought my internal alarm is/was correct. I with there were a way to put companies like this out of business, so they can't prey on those desperate for a solution. Here is one sale they won't be making. Sites like this are the defense we all need! Cheryl R.

I didn't lose weight I gained but I am losing weight by taking Lipozene and it helps me. I called them numerous times and told them if I didn't get my money back I was reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and on Saturday I got a check from them for the amount they charged me minus the shipping & handling

You didnt read the fine print, it said "put the patch over your mouth", lol. Just a joke to get your attention. file your complaint with the bbb, and f.b.i. they will love to help you. God Bless and i hope you get all your money back and extra for the wait and pain of the hassles.

I am so glad that I checked this out before ordering as I was planning on ordering today. After reading all of the complaints, the literature will now be placed in the waste basket. Recently, I tried another product and it also did not work for me. I wonder if all of these weight loss programs are just scams?
