SADLY there is no 'quick fix' to losing tummy fat... Unless you can shell out the money for plastic surgery, the only thing you can do is to eat healthy, do extra ab excercises, weight train, cardio, maybe get a trainer if that'll help push you. But sadly there's no magical way. At least not a healthy one.

And come on girl, WHY WOULD YOU WRAP YOUR BELLY WITH PLASTIC WRAP?!? Haven't you thought that if all we needed was a little Saran wrap to have a flat stomach, the whole world would be doing it?! I would invest in plastic wrap stock. wink

Hi, its me again lol posting alot today :)
um for the past 3days I have been wrapping my stomach and back area with plastic wrap while working out. Its easier for me to break a sweat this way and it catches the sweat pretty good. Then once Im done working out. I take it off.

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF ITS SAFE TO KEEP DOING THIS??
I KNOW I CANT KEEP IT ON ALL DAY OR NUTHIN LIKE THAT DUE TO POSSIBLE DEHYDRATION.
SO I JUST DO IT FOR WORKOUTS THATS ALL..

any advice would be greatly appreciated cuz im about to workout right now :)

NO - your belly would have gone down alot anyways. That is what normally happens after childbirth. At the most you only sped up the normal process. You may have sped up the reduction of swelling, like putting a tensor bandage on a sprained ankle, but it is a normal process that would have happened any way. Sorry...

Check out this quote from Dr. Donald M. Brown, MD, a San Francisco Plastic Surgeon

"As appealing as it sounds none of the compression type belts work for stretch marks nor excessive skin. There is always some improvement of the abdomen following pregnancy so any claims made attributing this to the compression belt are not valid. The amount of improvement will depend on a host of factors such as how much weight was gained during the pregnancy, how quickly the weight was gained, the condition of the abdomen before the pregnancy, genetics, etc. Stretch marks result from the elastic tissue being torn by rapid skin stretching during pregnancy and as of today there are no creams, nor compression belts which will reverse this. If you are not happy with the appearance of your tummy after your pregnancy seek out a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine your options."

All the other docs on this site agree that Kourtney Kardashian's claims this helped her stomach down after her pregnancy are bogus.

i've heard of wrapping the tummy in saran wrap and applying castor oil to the belly before wrapping to take out the toxins while you sleep.

Making yourself sweat more does nothing for you except dehydrate you faster. You're not helping yourself by doing this....at all. Sweat does not equal calories burned.


TRUE!!! Listen to this!!! Just do more Sit ups and let muscles burn your fat around belly!


No, muscles don't burn fat. A deficit of calories is the ONLY thing that causes fat to "burn", & situp are relatively a waste of time compared to compound lifts.

Wrapping your body with saran wrap will promote more sweat, but its not very safe because it can lead to hydration :( it also promotes weight loss, but only water weight (so it will come back ) :(

If you're wanting to wrap why don't you try the Ultimate Body Applicator?
-tighten, tones, & firms your skin
-reduces cellulite/stretch marks
-& it will help you lose actual weight
-You also drink water so you'll be hydrated :)

If you're interested, let me know :)

Well I'm pretty sure it's safe for sandwiches, so why not the body. It will probably keep you fresh until lunch time. But I hear you shouldn't put it in a microwave. So avoid stepping into any human-sized microwaves.... seriously, even if some web page tells you that sitting in a microwave will help you burn belly fat fast.



Awww :) Look at this little 2012 flashback of Taso!!! :)

Last summer I wrapped my thighs, stomach, and upper arms in plastic wrap and put on a hoodie and sweats. I ran on a treadmill for probably 45-60 minutes a day for a month. Just keep yourself hydrated. It made my thighs, arms, and stomach smaller. 👍😊

Saran wrap is not breathable. Skin needs to breathe.

Whether or not you break a sweat is not an indicator of calorie burns or how hard you're working, especially when you're making it do it by depriving it of breathability.

EDIT: WHO BROUGHT THIS THING BACK FROM THE DEAD?!

Water weight. When I wrestled and needed to get to a weight class, we would bundle up and run around. It comes back right after. If it doesn't, you should be wary of dehydration.

I personally wouldn't do it again without the guidance of someone (somewhat) professional to watch out for me. (And, it's generally ****ty and does nothing for long term loss. I was about 53kg naturally and cut to the 51kg class for every tournament in my last year. I was in great shape, but I never stayed at 51kg by sweating it out.)

I am wrapping a flank steak in Saran Wrap to marinate before I grill it tonight. It will be nice and lean.

No point dehydrating yourself. In fact a lot of people say you should sip a little bit of water every now and then during your workout so that you don't weigh significantly less after a workout. And I find the more dehydrated I am, the more my performance suffers.

Okay SOOO Has anyone who is chatting on this forum about this topic actually tried it with saran wrap??????????? Everyone seems to be commenting about how it doesn't work without actually saying they tried it!! If you haven't tried it why do you even bother commenting??
June 28, 2014 1:51 PM
it's safe (although possibly if you're working out in extreme heat it might increase the risk of overheating)

but utterly pointless

because I've studied enough about human physiology to understand *WHY* it doesn't work.

I also know that leeches will not cure people of the flu without ever having tried that. Because science.
