This next blog is in response to a question I get asked pretty often at the gym, "Mike, what do you think about wearing those waist / abdominal wraps?". I hope this answers the question once and for all.
Myth #6: Sweat away that belly fat with waist / abdominal wraps.
What you should know: Sweat isn't melted fat.
The excess weight you lose during this absurd method of training is water weight, not fat. The weight will return as soon as you ingest enough fluid to offset that lost during the activity. In a nutshell, you're losing weight but the wrong kind, and it won't last.
