Ladies, there's a new book in stores just for you called 'The Tapping Solution,' and it claims you can shed the pounds just by tapping your fingers on your face and body.

Its a two-step process.  One, when you're craving the bad stuff, you're supposed to dig down deep inside yourself and get to the root of whats really bothering you (stress, work, marriage etc).  Then you tap two fingers on nine specific acupuncture pressure points while you tell yourself "Things are going to be alright."

The nine pressure points include the fleshy part on the side of your hand below the pinky, your eyebrow, next to your eye socket, under your eye, under your nose, your chin, your collarbone, under your arm just below the armpit, and the crown of your head.

I was thinking how ridiculous this sounded but in a clinical study, 89 women tried it and lost an average of 16 pounds in just eight weeks.  Here's another kicker, they kept the weight off six months later.
