    I bought a pair of those shorts that makes you sweat more and that belt that u wrap around yr belly. Do they assist in fat loss?

    I doubt it. I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure sweat is just water leaving your pores to cool down your body. It has nothing to with fat loss.

    Nope. In fact, they can hinder your fat loss if you become dehydrated. If your core temperature is too high, your exercise performance will suffer. You get fat loss by getting your calories up to sustain vigorous physical activity, then, you get busy, and be patient. You also need weight training to strengthen your bones, and increase your lean muscle mass as you grow older.

    The best place for that belt, and the shorts, is in THE TRASH. Not at all what you should be doing.

    To keep your exercise performance up, stay cool. DO NOT WEAR A CAP/HAT. DO NOT WEAR clothing that will cause you to dehydrate. Dress lightly, and drink lots of water. Remember, if it looks stupid, lots of times, it is.

    If you want 40g of amino acids, get yourself a can of tuna. It's a bunch cheaper, and tastes better. MEAT has amino acids. Protein is amino acids. Pills are how the nutrition industry preys on the ignorant. Go buy yourself some real food.

    If you want help, find a real person, in a real gym, or hire a trainer.

    Thank for the response! I am unemployed at the moment- so a gym is out of the question- all I have is a tread mill and some barbells-
