The plastic bag weight loss theory?

My husband is convinced if he wears a plastic garbage bag under his shirt that he will increase his sweating and somehow loose more weight. I can't seem to convince him that while it will make him sweat more that he's not going to drop any appreciable pounds that way. He'd be much better off looking at some of the top rated diet pills or finding a low calorie diet that he can live with. Not to mention I wouldn't have to hear him crinkle every time he walks by...

This method works, although you must be head to toe in the suit. a mouth hole should be wide enough to breathe. as the heat intensifies it creates a molecular reaction in the stratum corneum layer of the epidermus (skin). excercise while wearing the bag in the sun and you will undoubtedly shed 5-9lbs in a 3 hours period.

Wow, thank you for your comment, I know understand how it can work, if he were to do more than just wear the plastic bag under his shirt...

Jockeys and wrestlers often use vinyl or rubber "sweatsuits" to lose weight before a race / match, but the weight loss is temporary as it is simply water weight. Using such a suit exercising can cause additional weight loss, as the body burns calories in an attempt to cool itself.

Of course I usually follow such exercise with a pint of Guinness, so I wouldn't place too much weight behind my advice.
