I call bullshit.
Word. How is it cold enough to freeze FAT which protects against cold in most mammals yet the skin (the medium of that heat transfer which) itself doesn't die?
Fat freezes at a higher temperature than other soft tissues. I think they brought it up in the article.
They did, but one would think that if it's not cold enough to hurt (as mentioned in the article), it can't be very cold. Hell, why not just go outside in the fall and lose all sorts of weight?
Regardless, unless they show some scientific proof that fat cells are actually dying, it's probably just a placebo effect for someone who is already trying to lose weight.
They also said this:
Anything sub-zero wouldn't be within a window between skin and fat cell temperature susceptibility..
Yes but to achieve that temperature to kill the fat cells then they have to overcome the insulating effects of the skin. To do this the temp differential has to be significant.
How about you just stop eating like a fucking pig?
stop bringing logic and reason into a way to make money off of weight loss!
I agree. I can't see this working unless "cooling", rather than freezing the fat actually works.
Fatties dream of a pill or gimmick to fix their failure. Actually doing what's needed is against everything a fatty is used to.
well, no shit.
my friend's dad is a fat guy with bad knees and he ordered that lipozene shit.
To be fair, this procedure isn't intended for fatties. It's for spot removing fat. As in, someone who has lost just about all the weight but can't quite get rid of the bunt.
