Black bags under clothing during cardio

Ive heard that this is a good way of losing weight. I just wanted to now would this method help you burn more calories, or would it just help get rid of water weight or both.

    Just makes you warmer so you sweat more, i.e. more water loss.

    so it has no effect the amount of calories you burn? also would this result in a person getting more dehydrated.

    Could possibly lead to de-hydration, yes.

    overall it seems a bit silly mate, plus when you take your shirt off in the changing room youll get a few funny looks

    You may not be able to perform as effectively as you hope for because of the effect the bags will have on you.. i.e. dehydrate you and overheat you..

    This was a method used by footballers after a night out - they thought they could sweat the alcohol out faster. Sounds damn dangerous to me!

    As you may already know, boxers have been known to do this to make weight for a fight. I view it only as a short term fix, a way to rid the body of a little more water weight.

    Certainly not something i would want to do on any kind of regular basis.

    I think this was really a big thing with those who take up fitness for their new year resolution and jog for 2 weeks. Im sure this was massive in the eighties or early nineties. You would often see people running with a bin bag around them. Anyone else remember this craze or was it a Newcastle thing only lol

    A sauna will result in the same weight loss as the plastic bags. Plus its a little more comfortable. Either way once you have a drink of water afterward the weight you loose will be back on again
