Question:

How good is to use a body wrap for sweating more in a work out?
Anne

Answer:

Dear Anne,

Sweating is by no means proportionate to calorie burning.

So don't assume that sweating is necessarily an accurate measure of a good workout or an indicator that calorie burning is in high gear and exercising in higher temperatures and humidity can be dangerous.

There is an optimal temperature for working out : 68 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

A body wrap basically just dehydrate you a little. So sure you'll lose inches. For about a day. A more permanent (and cost effective) way to lose a little retained water is lowering your sodium intake.

All body wraps do is make you sweat, so all you lose is water which you will regain the first time you eat/drink something.

There is no quick fix -- loss of inches requires a decrease in calories eaten and an increase
in calories burned.

A body wrap is a health treatment that assists you in toning and tightening your body, moisturizing your skin, decreasing excess water weight from your body, improving your circulation and detoxifying your body in as little as one hour.

In general, body wraps are intended to improve the elasticity and appearance of your skin by helping to lessen the body of excess fluids and toxins. These treatments are usually available in spas for the reduction of cellulite and the relief of stress of everyday life.
