Why The Wraps Don’t Work

annisa it works wraps

I get asked this question several times a week. (Do the wraps REALLY work? Do they really tighten your skin? My friend told me they didn’t work…. etc. etc.)

So, my job right here is to tell you exactly WHY they aren’t working for you.

Let’s start with reason #1. Because you expect a drastic change after using only  1 wrap. Let me use this analogy to explain the wraps. It’s just like whitening your teeth. It’s a gradual process. You don’t just slap on one crest white strip and expect your teeth to be shining brighter than the sun. 1 wrap is considered a treat and 4 is considered a treatment. Some people may take more than 4 wraps to get to where they want to be! It all depends on your body, health goals, and more factors that I will explain here in a bit.

If you aren’t taking before and after pictures for yourself either, then you might as well have not even used the wrap at all. Before and After pictures are EVERYTHING. I don’t think I have ever been able to FEEL the difference until I SAW it for myself in pictures. Not only should you take a picture right after you take off the wrap, but also take a picture 72 hours after. The ingredients from the wrap continue to tighten and tone your skin for at least 72 hours, so your results will continue.

Another reason why the wraps won’t work. And this one isn’t as surprising when you really think about it, but let me ask you this. Are you drinking enough water? Are you drinking at least half of your body weight in ounces every day? Now, I can go all scientific on the reasons WHY you should be drinking water when wrapping, but I’m not going to bore you with the details. Basically, your body needs to flush out those toxins that the wrap is helping to break down. Ever heard of Lipolysis? No? Google it.

And if you’re drinking alcohol while wrapping, well I don’t have much to say about that.

Now, I saved this one for last because it’s something that most people don’t understand. I will always ask you what your exercise and eating habits are like before I get you started on anything. Why? Because our products are not meant to REPLACE a healthy lifestyle but ENHANCE it. Some people automatically think if they use our products they can stop exercising and stop eating healthy. Or they think they don’t need the wraps because they are already exercising and eating healthy.

That’s great but did you know your body can and will eventually hit a plateau where you won’t be able to lose weight, tone, or build muscle as fast as you once did. That’s why SUPPLEMENTS are made! (go figure)

Actually, our products work as a catalyst to boost your results and to get you over that plateau. Sure, these products can work without exercising but  don’t expect to see results right away. It will take AWHILE.

I’ve also mentioned this before, but if you’re not being consistent with your supplements don’t expect crazy results either. Even if you’re taking your supplements consistently, it will take about 3-4 weeks to start seeing results.

I’m not here to tell you there is a magic pill out there because there’s not, but there are ways to significantly boost your results and easier ways to reach your goal. IT WORKS when you DO. (no pun intended). So the question is are you ready to work for it?

Do You Make These 4 Mistakes When Working Out?


So, most of us want to workout but aren’t exactly sure where or how to start. We do a few push-ups a day, maybe a couple of squats, work up a sweat and we should be good right? Eh…. Not exactly.

For me, losing weight and toning up has always been pretty easy (thanks to my good genes) but that’s not how it is for everyone.

Here, I’ll discuss the 4 major mistakes you may be making and why you probably aren’t losing that weight you so easily thought could shed.

  1. Not being CONSISTENT- You have to be consistent in everything you do for at least 90 days or more. This includes healthy eating habits, working out, taking supplements, etc. You can’t expect to workout for 2 weeks and already start seeing results. It just doesn’t work like that. Although, don’t we all wish it did.. Sigh.. Anyway, same goes for healthy eating and taking health supplements. You can’t do these things when it’s convenient or shall I say not convenient for you. It takes work, but when you start being consistent enough, it turns into a habit, and then that habit turns into a lifestyle. See the pattern here? Stay consistent.
  2. Not drinking enough WATER– Water should be the main thing you are drinking throughout the day. If you didn’t know this already, stick your hand out and plant the palm of your hand on your forehead… No really, do it. Okay okay.. I’ll admit, I’m not the best with drinking water either but, it is one of the most important parts of losing weight. Not to mention, it’s the best and most natural detox for your body. It rids your body of toxins and can even metabolize stored fat. So get that daily intake of water, at least half of your body weight in ounces, and bottoms up!
  3. Not doing cardio- If we do some crunches, some push-ups, maybe squats we will lose weight and tone up at the same time, right? WRONG. Cardio is probably one of the main sources of weightloss. Okay, yes cardio sucks. Nobody wants to do it, unless you’re just some kind of insane person. Kidding, I praise y’all. But it’s extremely important. Why? To burn off the calories. I made the mistake of thinking that if I did 100 crunches a day I’ll for sure get abs, right? Nope. You have to get rid of the fat to see the abs in the first place. “No pain, no gain”. Cardio doesn’t have to be all bad. Dancing is what I love to do. Circuit training is also a good way to go. As long as you get your body moving, you can’t go wrong.
  4. “I want to work out the right way, I don’t need supplements”-  Why yes this could be true for a select few, and I mean SELECT, it is not the case for most people. No matter how much you workout, your body will eventually hit a plateau. You won’t see as DRASTIC results as you once did the first 2 months. And that’s perfectly normal. Sometimes, we need that extra push to get over that plateau. There are supplements that can help increase your metabolism so you burn more calories a day and then there are some that can stimulate the natural production of the HGH hormone to help build lean muscle mass. Whatever the supplement, know that you are not TOO GOOD to take them. Everybody needs help now and then and there is NO shame in getting that extra help.

With that being said, I have a few supplements that I highly recommend for getting you over that plateau. All natural and safe for the heart. I take them now and I am highly satisfied with how fast my metabolism is.
