cons:
You lose only water weight.You will regain it as soon as you drink/eat.
You get dehydrated.
You risk heat stroke.

You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there.

Cons:
Dude, it sucks. I've done the whole sauna suit with icy/hot all over your body thing to cut for competitions, it blows. Your dehydrated, feint, tired, and lose strength. It's not gunna help you lose fat.
Also, if you participate in AAU or NCAA sports, its ILLEGAL.

Pros:
It's quick.

Pain is only temporary, it is in your mind. If you can still walk, then you can still run.

Plus if you do this too often, your body will tend to hold water in anticipation of the next time. Same with overuse of the suana.

You have to get rid of all your normal clothing and fashion all new garments from duct tape and black garbage bags. Stay away from water it's really fattening because as soon as you drink a few glasses of the stuff you'll see you gain back a ton of weight that you worked hard to lose:)

Pros: I'll pay you $10 to wear the trash bag and post your picture.
