I've been training on and off for the past 7 years (wow i should be stronger!) and have made some good progress recently (past 15 months or so) as I've been more disciplined; got my diet right, have barely missed a training session and I found this site!
In a nut shell, has anyone heard/seen/experienced the... wait for it...
http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style ... 47978.html
I was wondering if there was any credence to this... there is a shop selling the 'service' at the reception of my gym.
I've run, dieted, lifted, x-trainer, cycled etc... I'm aware that spot reduction is a myth and therefore an ability to change my shape was/is largely out of my control, at least in terms of fat deposits - could the 'Vacuum Suit' be a miracle of science or just another money making tool?
The article claims the science stands up but equally those who engage with the weight loss programme are advised to diet appropriately, exercise 3 times a week etc...
I appreciate that this begs many questions: n-sample, lifestyle, diet, age demographic etc, not to mention what the individuals did or didn't as an exercise regime prior to 'Vacuuming'.
Once again, the short question is:
Can this work? If to what extent?
Sorry for the essay!
