Good Vibrations?

24 10 2007

Looking for washboard abs?  Then you may want to consider standing on a vibrating plantform for 15 minutes a day for about 15 weeks. Perhaps, that sounds a little looney, but that’s what a medical researcher in Maine discovered in his testing on mice. According to the Associated Press:

mice developed 27 percent fewer abdominal fat cells and saw other benefits, including reduced triglycerides in the liver. The mice didn’t lose weight but Rosen says it appears that the vibrations changed fat distribution in a beneficial way.

Sounds like vibrating platforms might make good Christmas gifts for all those holiday compulsive eaters yet reluctant dieters out there. Or perhaps it might be a better gift to some other people looking to shift some weight to all the right places.
