Thin Ice Weight-Loss Clothing
While we’re sure you’re just fine as you are, we all probably want to shed a couple of pounds to feel at our best, especially after a summer of indulgence. But if you’re anything like us, going running or going to the gym is a chore at the best of times. Luckily we’ve found something that could help in the Thin Ice clothing range – the very first weight-loss clothing range!
Based on estimates derived from Thin Ice prototypes, they estimate that you’ll be able to burn between 500 and 1000 calories a day. That’s the equivalent of 1 to 2 pounds a week!
Now usually we’d be very sceptical of outlandish claims like this but the science behind it seems to make sense to our uneducated eyes and has been backed up by some independent and reliable sources such as the New England Journal of Medicine and the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology.
The idea is actually pretty simple. Thin Ice clothing cools certain areas of the body which creates a cascade of physiological responses which kick your metabolism into overdrive. As a result, you burn unwanted fat and get leaner! Don’t worry, though, Thin Ice say this cooling stimulation is so mild that you’ll forget all about it after just a few seconds of adaptation.
The Thin Ice range includes an Insole for your shoes which come in Women’s size 4-12 and have a battery life of 4-8 hours. There’s also a Vest which comes in Women’s sizes S-XXL+ with a battery will last 6-8 hours. The insole and vest will be fully rechargeable using a charging pad which will be included and takes around 2 hours to recharge.
It should be said, however, that the Thin Ice range is in the prototype stage and hasn’t gone through rigorous trials yet. The 500-1000 calories a day estimate is based on extrapolations from prototype results and peer-reviewed scientific literature involving similar temperatures and bodily areas stimulated. In short, it could be less than that!
The Thin Ice weight loss range is being sold on crowd-funding website Indiegogo. It’s already gone well beyond its target having made its original goal 300 times over! So Janes are clearly loving the idea.
The insole and the vest will set you back around £60 each ($95), which isn’t cheap, but much cheaper than some other alternatives. Although be warned – the Thin Ice garments will also cost around £30 for international shipping. Get more details at the Thin Ice Indiegogo Page!
