Thermal Suits

When wrestlers or boxers need to make weight, they’ll get in a quick and sweaty workout to drop a few pounds—of water weight. That weight quickly comes back once they rehydrate.

In a similar way, everyday dieters try thermal sweat suits, thinking that they will get weight-loss results.

In reality, the vinyl suits won’t help you lose body fat any faster, and they could even make you feel tired quicker from the inability to regulate your body temperature. Worse, excessive dehydration can lead to kidney failure, heat stroke, and heart attacks.

Just crank up the speed on the treadmill and break a natural sweat.
