OK, so I was watching Ellen and she has this crazy lady on there frequently. Last time she was on she said if you take a bath in the "broth" of ramen noodles or with the noodles, it will suck the water right out of your body. She said she tried it and after about 5-10 minutes, her jewelry was sliding off. I thought it was very funny and just wanted to share with you all. :-)


HA HA. Have a great day!

Give everyone dirty looks if they comment on the smell and say snottily, "That's my PERFUME," like they're silly for not knowing the latest awesomely expensive brand of perfume that came out that happens to smell exactly like said person's lunch.

Or, wait. Maybe you'll blend in with the lunch crowd and nobody will notice. That would be awesome.

I wonder how many ramen packs I would need for that.

Ramen noodles are full of sodium. Tons and tons of it! Soaking in a sodium bath will dehydrate you, causing your body to lose pounds worth of water weight. This weight comes right back within a day or two of regular life, drinking water and so on.

I totally believe her, but it's nothing spectacular. (yuck!)

I don't think there's any way a bath of any kind can suck fat out of the body. How horribly dangerous bathing would be if that were true!! (Maybe a bath of hot lava?)

Fat cells never leave the body--sans liposuction. They just shrink or expand. They cannot be sucked out through your pores, and that's a good thing!

So THAT's why my vaccuum wasn't doing anything... well that sucks. It's been stuck to my thigh for days and I'm still as fat as I was then. :[

this is exactly what i was gonna say. that's why i don't eat ramen as it has an insane amount of salt in it. I wouldn't be surprised if this could actually dehydrate someone a bit...

I am sure it would work.....yes, you are not losing fat, just water. Osmosis baby.....water travels from a higher gradient (your body) to a lower gradient (the ramen)....the high sodium actually sucks the water out of your body in a manner of speaking. Not healthy and DEF. not long lasting.....just the smell of Ramen in your pores would be long lasting haha.

LOL! That's so hysterical. I think I'll let the rest of you try it for me though. :)
