Vacunaut fat burning suit

Logically, I understand the only way to look like you're a person who exercises is to exercise, but I can't help but be a little curious and mildly hopeful when I see a contraption like the Vacunaut abdominal spacesuit. The suit is actually worn while running on a treadmill in order to target the fat-burning to the fatty abdominal area. The claims?

Exercising with the Vacunaut® will melt away even the most stubborn of stomach fat. By constantly switching between low and high atmospheric pressure the blood supply to the fatty tissue is intensified, which accelerates the transportation of the fatty cells to the muscles that are being trained.

I'm sure there's little medical evidence and if it does anything at all, it probably just weighs you down and makes you sweat more, leaving the impression of weight loss which is only water. British actress Anna Friel, however, claims it helped her lose all her pregnancy weight within a few months. I'm more intrigued by the company's Hypnoxi L250, of which there are no details yet, but is a machine you simply lie down inside to melt away your hip, thigh, and butt fat. Like most of the so-called "fat-burning" devices, these things can probably, at most, "temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite" rather than get rid of any of it.

Prevention has a good run-down on the newest cellulite "cures".

All of the Hypoxi treatments are active so within the L250 you do actually cycle. I have done a course of sessions of vacunaut and my trainer was excellent at explaining the science and principle to me. I exercise regularly but never lose from stomach - the vacunaut encouraged the fat around my stomach to be the primary fuel used during the walking activity so any fat lost is from this area. it has certainly worked for me so i'd try before any comments are made!


It does make you sweat more hence helping you lose weight...as soon as you drink it comes back on. Gutted that I paid good money for this. Would not recommend.


I have done a course of treatments and have been amazed by my results. I have lost two trouser sizes and can now actually see some definition in my abdominals. The science behind this is very basic!!! I was encouraged to drink at least two litres of water per day so that i was never dehydrated hence i never put it back on when i had a drink LOL!!!! Just try it, its cheaper than surgery and quite fun!!!
