      You will no doubt get many answers to this - mine is I doubt it.

      If it worked - everyone would do it and from what I see that does not seem likely.

      You will get nice soft skin though and it is sometimes used to help prevent stretch marks.

        Yup I am with you on this 2uesday,  a smooth skin is all you will get, may be a more toned one if you really massage firmly enough!

        You've probably read all this kind of stuff, but just in case there's anything useful here, here's a link on it:

        I was read something by a "fitness guru", and he was talking about this kind of fat and "loose skin" that remain after weight loss.  He said how "loose skin" is really just fat that takes more efforts to lose.  He pointed out that formerly overweight people in places like concentration camps don't have this leftover fat. 

        I wasn't sure if I should believe what this guy was saying (although it made sense), until my daughter's cat (an older cat she "rescued" and one who had been so overweight it had a lot of fat hanging underneath, to the point where it looked like she'd just had 20 kittens).  The fat remained for quite awhile, and we just kind of thought the cat had a permanent "deformity".  Somewhere along the way, the cat lost all that and looks like any other healthy-weight cat now.  So I believe that fitness guy now.   smile

        My point is, I'm thinking you shouldn't be as concerned about a detoxer as you should be aiming toward finding those ways to eventually lose that harder-to-lose fat.  If you're under a lot of stress, I wonder if there are ways you can aim to reduce that...      I know this isn't particularly helpful, but somehow the olive-oil thing on the outside seems a little questionable to me.   smile  It wouldn't hurt to try it, though.   hmm  I just kind of think you shouldn't count on it without trying other things as well.

      I think it works but only when applied with a partner...

    I had heard and read about apple cider vinegar doing the same thing. I believe from memory, it has something to do with the vinegar disolving the fat. It can also be taken in a glass of water.

    Must admit, I have never heard of that one and find it a little dubious.

    The Greeks use olive oil for many things, but rubbing it into the stomach to dissolve visceral fat isn't one of them.

    Eating olive oil may well have an effect - it is excellent for reducing harmful cholesterol in the bloodstream, one of the breakdown products of visceral fat. Exercise is still the best way, though smile

    Apple cider vinegar dissolves galls stones. I'd been having trouble and tried it after reading about it online. Couldn't get anything other than distilled apple cider vinegar and drank about 100ml in a tall glass of water every day for a week.
    The pain stopped.
    However it is the nature of gallstones to cause pain for a few days then disappear anyway, only to return at a later date.
    However, the fat on my stomach stayed the same!
