I thought Kimchi was that nasty smelling korean delicacy? What does it "bold"ly shape?

Hmm... I guess if you use a jar of kimchi as a slimming gel, the pungent smell would get worse after a few days and you'd lose your appetite by then... and voila, you're slimmer.

But seriously, like other slimming/shaping gels, its 'supposed' to break down fat on the area you apply it... I suspect its more of a topical diuretic - and Temporarily takes away water from the spot you apply it on, making the area look slimmer. Anyone know the science behind these slimming gels and creams?
