Anyone with a wetsuit will hate this idea

You know that certain season late in spring where the air is 80 but the water is still freezing so you wear a wetsuit? That day where you feel like a Costco rotisserie chicken?

That's the memory that will tell you how bad an idea this is: a neoprene (long sleeve no less) shirt designed to make you sweat during a work out.

Quote:
The Neoprene Workout Shirt is made from, unsurprisingly, neoprene. This material is what makes it so easy for you to burn fat and calories. It heats up the body and traps in said heat, so it is like a sauna in there when you’re moving.

You aren't burning fat and calories, your body is leaking water like crazy in an attempt to keep you from dying.

You'll actually burn fewer calories with this than without it, since thermogenesis will be shut down. A cold pack on your neck (where the brown fat cells are) would do a better job of burning calories.

Get out of here with your science. I personally use essential oils to speed the fat burning process.

I'm sad that it was way too easy finding a web site to back up this stupid comment.

Why can't people lose weight the safe, old fashioned way by using diet pills or fad diets?
