Caffeine buzz your way to slimmer legs
I'm sure that we're all used to seeing miracle weight loss gimmicks come down the pipe, but this beautiful pair of tights is probably the best bit of false hope that I've seen in a while. These Slim Fit 20 hose sound more like a cigarette brand than an undergarment, but they promise to trim and tone your legs with the gentle power of caffeine absorbed through the skin.
The fiber is impregnated with caffeine micro capsules. The body temperature causes the caffeine to act on the skin. Its been proven the active ingredients of caffeine stimulate the metabolism, help burn fat and tighten the tissue of the legs.
Stimulants are pretty much all the same, and if I kept myself riding a serious caffeine buzz all day every day I'd lose a bit of weight from the missed meals alone. While fifty bucks for a three pack is a pretty sharp price to pay for pantyhose that will lose their chemical luster over time, they might be worth it just to shut up the Slashdot jocks at the office.
