Loose fat with a diving suit, a treadmill and vacuum

The blog Medgadget writes about a diving suit, vacuum, and exercise on a treadmill. Sounds like a dream I once had…

“Apparently the Vacunaut works on the theory of hypoxic training which says that difficult fat deposits have decreased blood flow and are therefore less likely to be utilized by the body.

Never mind the fact that exercise increases blood flow or that ‘hypoxic training’ traditionally refers to high altitude induced erythropoiesis, not weight loss. Color me suspicious.”

From the Vacunaut section of the Southwest Hypoxitraining Centre website:

“Vacunaut treatment involves exercising on a treadmill whilst wearing a specially adapted diving suit which places your abdomen in a computer controlled vacuum.”
