  • I haven't, because really you are just losing some extra water when you workout - which isn't necessarily good for you. Make sure you are drinking LOTS of water while wearing it!!

  • yeah i think that would make me quit sooner than I normally would...and during daily activities ? wouldn't that just cause dehydration? wow, i think it's just a gimmick....there's so much in the fitness and health industry that companies capitalize on because the trends are so concentrated on appearances and getting healthy...nothing wrong with where we're headed, but this stuff gives people false's hard work and eating right that is going to help with weight loss.

  • I would not like the feeling of being hot and sweaty all day long. Good luck to you though.

  • Extra sweating does not mean extra weight loss. You're just losing water weight, which you will need to drink more water to make up for. Trust me, it does not matter whether you're burning up or not during your workout--it's not going to actually burn off extra fat just because you're uncomfortable. As a matter of fact, I'd be hesitant to wear this kind of sweat suit because with the hot discomfort you must be in, you might be tempted to cut your workouts a little shorter and that will cost you calories.

  • I've never heard of it

  • I'm glad you asked! I was wondering the same thing. Now that everybody's mentioned it, it does seem like all you'd be losing is water weight.
