Velform Sauna Belt - Scam With a Capital "S"

Velform Sauna Belt - Scam With a Capital "S"

I know some people are desperate to drop some pounds, but come on. The Velform Sauna Belt is in a world of its own.

By wearing this unfashionably ugly belt, it claims to help you sweat away unwanted fat, eliminate cellulite, lose weight and ease muscle pain, all while "sitting in the comfort of your own home."

The Velform Sauna Belt "focuses the sauna heat on the most problematic body parts to help flush out and eliminate toxins. This portable sauna belt is great for the abdomen, waist, back and hips. Just apply the Velform Sauna Belt around the chosen body part and let the belt do all the work."

It works like a heating pad - you can control the temperature setting. When it's set to maximum (that sounds scary), the heat stimulates the blood flow, which helps you generate heat. This is turn makes you sweat.

Fit's Tips: Spot reduction gadgets like this don't do a thing to help you lose weight. You've got to do good old fashioned cardio to burn calories to lose fat all over your body.

The Man has one of these that SHOCKS the muscles. Got it free from work. I've dared him to put it on, but he thinks it will hurt the "resale" value. :LOL:
