Not Really....: Wrapping yourself in Saran wrap isn't the best ideal to lose weight. The occlusion of the skin increases temperature, causes more sweating and forces you to lose water weight. The problem is you have to replace the fluids from the sweating, so it has a 0 net effect. You are better off at the gym exercising at your elevated zone for 30+ minutes and watching your diet.
