Itworks?

From what I read it's a detox type thing so it wouldn't be ok while nursing right? I had a rep say it was but I'm wondering. Also wondering if it's even worth the money. Lol

Detoxes are off limits while nursing. And anything like that IS a scam. Save your money. There are ZERO shortcuts in losing weight. The most effective method is the one that's not only completely free... it will cut your grocery bill AND increase your fitness level.

You guessed it: Eat right and exercise. That's it.

Caveat here: Hormonal birth control will make weight loss difficult to impossible. Some folks have glandular problems that also cause them to hold on to weight.

That's what I figured. Their sales reps are very convincing lol.

Itworks wraps aren't safe while breastfeeding, which is even stated in their faqs.

I'm a distributor.  It is NOT safe while nursing.  Some of their supplements are, but not the wraps.

It's not a scam, but it's also not a long term weight loss thing either (another thing that is stated in our faqs).

Wow this is total opposite from what two distributors told me earlier. They said it was safe but don't get the cream on the baby and the toxins won't get into your breastmilk and that it was long term. Once inches lost they're off. I thought it sounded odd....

We are not allowed to even mention the word toxins.

No, it's not safe and unless you change your eating and exercise habits the loss is not permanent.

It's a place to start in a world run by instant satisfaction. It's instant results to help boost your want to be healthy and exercise, but if you continue to eat crap and drink soda, you're just going to get the weight back.
