The aim of this review was to systematically assess and analyze the effect of full wet sheet pack on weight-related outcomes. The randomized control study was planned to evaluate the effect of full wet sheet pack on anthropometric measurement and metabolic parameters on obese persons. METHODS: A total of forty subjects, mean aged (Male 22.33± 1 & female28.87 ± 6.2) were assigned into study after satisfying the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Subjects were assessed at baseline and after 4 weeks of post data. During these 4 weeks the subjects were given full wet sheet pack once in two days for one month. RESULTS: There is a significant reduction in body weight, compared with the control group. CONCLUSION: The study was started with the aim of understanding the effect of Full wet sheet pack on anthropometric measurements and metabolic parameter on obese person. According to previous studies cold exposure would be an effective way to achieve weight loss and improve metabolic status by increase activation of BAT and reduce insulin resistance. At the end of the study it can be said that the full wet sheet pack is significantly reduce the body weight.
