Fight with Your Underwear to Burn Extra Calories

Fight with Your Underwear to Burn Extra Calories

MXPSome people go on a diet. Others go to the gym. But in Japan a more novel way of losing weight is fast gaining popularity -- wearing "fat burning" underwear. A growing number of Japanese men and women are slipping into underwear which claims to burn hundreds of calories a week, simply by wearing them. The MXP Calorie Shaper Pants are made with non-elasticated material that the company claims can make muscles work extra hard while walking or climbing stairs. The manufacturer claims that the average 140 pound man who walks 90 minutes a day while wearing them can lose 210 kilocalories weekly -- the equivalent of half a liter of beer. Key to the technology implemented in the underwear is the extra muscle strength required to balance the tension in the resin during normal walking activities.
