Yes, I agree with Stina - the belts and any sweat suit (those plastic, garbage bag looking things that you can buy as a top and pants)only make you sweat more and lose water, not burn extra calories. Also, be careful with those things, as they can cause you to overheat.

I guess I could see it possibly making you look slimmer by taking out water weight/sweat..you may lose an inch or two from that possibly.

However, you are not burning extra calories and any extra weight loss you see is from losing water (dehydration) - as soon as you re-hydrate you will have the weight back on (same as when you weigh right before a work out and re-weigh right after..you will most likely notice a weight loss of even a few lbs). It is not real weight loss as in losing fat. Sweat is simply water, sodium, and a small amount of potassium. There is no way to break fat into sweat.

Retaining water CAN make you look bigger, which is why having a low-sodium diet and something like this slimmer belt could make you look slimmer..you are cutting out the water retention.

Hello everyone

I just wanted to let everyone know I started using the Plus size Slimmer Belt and I feel like it really does help you trim extra fat from your stomach and waist. You sweat it all out when you walk. I also use it when I belly dance and I can feel the work out more. I picked it up from Kmart for about $10. You can purchase it online. Here is the one I purchased:

I recommend you check it out and use it daily. You sweat A LOT with this thing so I recommend using it over your clothes rather than under. You can also wash the belt, I would do it on delicate. I hope it works for all of you like its working for me.
