An extraordinary idea !

I have a friend who regularly attends at Slimming World. She is doing really well having come down from a size 24 to a size 20 in about 2 months.
Unfortunately, losing so much weight so quickly has left her with a really saggy lump of belly fat. I suggested exercise - sit ups etc., but,
apparently, her SW adviser does not agree with exercise at all - says it is a waste of time.
Her advice is - buy a large jar of Vick Vapour rub and massage it into the belly fat twice a day - and the fat will go.
I have never heard such an extraordinary idea and wondered if anyone else had? How on earth can Vick remove fat?

Thanks for the link - I still think it is weird!!

I looked at the whole list on the link, and several of them look good. I am inclined to use the generic version of the ointment, if I can get the
same results--Vicks is expensive!

The creaky knees were my own, Scholar. They were hurting due to a fall. I sprayed them with the WD40, massaged it in and it relieved the pain.

It is just flabby flesh, Jack. She is only 5ft 2ins tall - and weighs 17 stone! Too much food and no exercise. It is good that she is doing
something about it now.

If you want to lose weight, then replacing fat with muscle is not the way to do it, FWIW, muscle weighs more than fat. However.... Muscle weight is

One thing I use it for is to put it into my nose when I'm going to be teaching a class with a bad body odour problem. The unwashed teen is something
best avoided sense-wise. Vicks is not expensive imo.

Have you an update on how it worked?

Well, she can certainly breathe more easily.
