Usually soda-salt baths for weight loss are taken in combination with diet and exercise. On the Internet, however, you can find completely opposite statements - say, went to school for chemistry, remember how soda perfectly reduces fat absorption, in fact, blocks fat, that's welcome to the bath. Despite the strange logic of soda lovers, the procedure can be useful, and, in addition, pleasant. But, of course, no weight loss should not be expected, if your main "action" for him is to splash in the bathroom with soda. Try to treat these methods with a share of sanity, and they will probably help you.
How do soda-salt baths for weight loss work
According to legend, soda blocks the absorption of fat, and salt - drains the body. As a result, a lover of baths and from swelling gets rid of, and ceases to absorb fats consumed with food. If only lying in the tub could block the absorption of fats, we would. .. no, do not lose weight after each procedure, and completely lose the opportunity to absorb fat-soluble vitamins. What, as you know, is not such a beautiful rainbow result, which everyone expects.
In fact, everything that we put on the body in a bath, "pour" into a bathtub or in some other way we spread on ourselves in the hope of losing weight simply from changing the external conditions does not so deeply penetrate the skin to make us slim and beautiful. Most cosmetics are not destined to get to fat deposits without the good hand of a beautician, and a syringe for mesotherapy. So we accept that no fat deposits the bath does not "block", does not "dissolve" and does not "clean".
Why do I need a bath in this case? She can:
- improve blood circulation;
- intensify sweating and drainage;
- remove excess fluid from the body;
- improve the nervous system, soothe, relieve stress;
- reduce the craving for overeating due to an increased level of stress.
All this helps, especially if a person first time in his life has a diet, and can not cope with himself. The true scope of baths is the removal of the sport after the sport, and an increase in mobility to improve athletic performance. By and large, the bath enhances the comfort of compliance with any training plan, but almost nothing can do with fat.
How to take soda-salt baths for weight loss
The procedure requires some preparation. To begin with, you must take a shower with a regular gel, or better - treat the body with a scrub. To avoid significant micro-injuries, you need to use softer scrubs, if you, for example, take baths and massage often enough. It is recommended for "home" formulations that something like a spilled coffee with any vegetable oil or cream.
You can make a scrub and based on sea salt, with which you will take a bath. In such a scrub is usually added milk for washing or removing makeup or fatty cream to make the composition softer.
Next, a contrast shower is taken, 3-5 cycles of alternating hot and cold water will be enough. Only after a shower is recommended to proceed, in fact, to the bathroom.
The water temperature for the first procedures should not exceed 35 degrees. By 3-4 procedures, you can raise the water temperature to 38-39 degrees. Some sources write that the hotter the water, the better the bath, but in fact, exceeding the comfort temperature is fraught with serious problems from skin irritation to rapid heart rate and heart overload. To think that in the bath is the training of the heart muscle is a delusion. So you can "train" before the violation of the heart rate, but with the help of ordinary walking or other feasible cardio - really improve your fitness.
Baths for weight loss are taken courses. There are several options for recommendations. Absolutely healthy people without special problems with the heart, and internal organs can take a bath every day. But the more classic and mild option is the alternation of one day of application of a bath for weight loss, with a day of wraps or masks with a thermal effect.
All "thermoactive" procedures are conducted in the evening, 1-2 hours before bedtime. Doing baths and other procedures, when a person is going to go out into the street, or make physical efforts, should not. The bath relaxes and makes it almost impossible to retain the correct technique of doing the exercises. It is for this reason that fans of power fitness are advised to avoid training after baths, wraps and other SPAs in every possible way.
Recipes for soda-salt baths for weight loss
Usually takes 100 grams of soda per 100 g of salt. This bath has more restorative, rather than a serious drainage effect. In a bath with such a composition, it is possible to add any essential oils, dissolving them in milk. Use 2-3 drops of grapefruit oil, rosemary, rose, juniper, lemon grass, lemon, bitter orange or cinnamon to get an additional effect of accelerating blood circulation and drainage.

Meanwhile, in foreign sources under the soda-salt detox-bath is understood quite different from what we have here.
