About

The Cool Fat Burner and Cool Gut Buster are the world's first and only proven calorie burning cooling vests.  The Cool Fat Burner allows you to burn hundreds of calories an hour while you sit and lounge.

This means you can burn as many calories JUST FROM WEARING THE VEST as you would from working out.

But now other newcomer vests claim they can do the same thing -- yet have no verifiable independent evidence to back up their claims.  Want to know if they're telling the truth?

This Kickstarter campaign will find out.

Both the Cool Fat Burner & Cool Gut Buster are patent pending.
Both the Cool Fat Burner & Cool Gut Buster are patent pending.

First conceived in 2010, the Cool Fat Burner vests were initially made by hand in my mom's basement.  We've gone on to become the world's leading calorie burning cooling vest, the only one backed up by scientific testing and real-user testimonials, making one breakthrough and discovery after another, and we now need your help to take the next big step...

Goal:  Conduct a "Consumer Protection" experiment at an independent, 3rd party university exercise lab, on the Cool Fat Burner and several other cooling vests that now also claim they can burn 500 calories in a few hours.  Which ones really work?  Help us find out. 

Stretch Goal:   ($80 to $100,000 -- depends on number of subjects and length of time)  First ever university group study on the Cool Fat Burner and its effects on calorie burning on college-aged men over a 6 to 8 week period.

Rewards:  The Cool Fat Burner, the Cool Gut Buster, our unique cold packs, and fingerless knit gloves.

The Cool Fat Burner and Cool Gut Buster are specialized cooling vests that designed to burn calories, and have been tested and verified at independent university labs.

Our unique "Hybrid" cold packs are so powerful, one should wear gloves to handle them.

The Cool Fat Burner is the first and only cooling vest to undergo "indirect calorimetry" and prove it's potential -- the ability to triple metabolism and burn hundreds of calories an hour, even while you sit and relax.  (at my body-weight and brown fat levels, that's ~500 calories in 2 hours)

If you think that's impressive, watch where I burned OVER 2500 CALORIES IN 1 DAY -- as much as running a marathon -- with the Cool Fat Burner and general cold thermogenesis, all verified by DEXA scans and indirect calorimetry! 

It's the same reason how:
  • Michael Phelps can eat thousands of extra calories a day, and stay ripped.(the water is cooler than his body temperature, it pulls the heat out, so he burns more calories to maintain body temp)
  • And how climbers of Mt Everest can lose up to 1/3 of their body-weight in a single day, despite eating sticks of butter!
  • Scientists in Antarctica and soldiers stationed in Siberia are required to eat 6000 to 8000 calories a day, just to maintain their body-weight.
  • And why Dr Oz had an audience member stand in a cold shower.  (she didn’t like it!)

The Cool Fat Burner induces what is called "cold thermogenesis."  This is how it burns calories.

The Cool Fat Burner is the only cooling vest designed to allow you to hit all 3 levels and intensities of cold thermogenesis. This is the ONLY WAY you'll burn hundreds of calories an hour, and why the copycat vests cannot do what the Cool Fat Burner can do.

  • Sensations:  feeling lightly cooled off
  • Real life example:  sitting in an air conditioned room w/ minimal clothing
  • Benefits:  rest and relaxation

This level of cold stress causes a very low level of calorie burn.  Would require literally all day to add up to any significant amount. 

***NOTE:  We suspect this is the level where the other cooling vests work.  An insignificant level of calorie burning.

This Kickstarter funded experiment will find out the truth.

  • Sensations:  a deep chill, maybe even goosebumps
  • Real life example:  sitting in a 50-60°F room w/ minimal clothing
  • Benefits:  a moderate increase in calorie burning

This level brings some increased calorie burn… but must be done for many hours to have an effect. 

  • Sensations:  pre-shivering, though various levels of shivering
  • Real life example:  ice baths, cold river immersion, arctic conditions
  • Benefits:  massive calorie burning (3-4X metabolic rate)

This is the level of triple to quadruple increase in calorie burning.

No, and there are several reasons why:

1.  First, "Fingers, toes, ears, & nose."  Socks, gloves, and a hat are your friends during cold thermogenesis sessions.

2.  Second, the Cool Fat Burner allows you freedom to do what you want, so you keep your mind on what you're doing.  Lounge around the house, watch TV, play video games.

IRONY ALERT:  we know standing burns ~ 18 cals/hr more than sitting.  I'll bet that's more than the copycat vests burn by themselves!!!  (Pledge and help us find out)

3.  Cold adaptation.  It allows you get used to using the Cool Fat Burner.

When cold adapted, this doesn't even cause goosebumps.
When cold adapted, this doesn't even cause goosebumps.

 Only the Cool Fat Burner can hit all levels and intensities of cold thermogenesis... and only the highest levels will cause massive calorie burning, enough to hit and go beyond the magical 500 calories /day. 

You can help us find out:  at what level do these other cooling vests REALLY function?

CAN THEY REALLY BURN 500 CALORIES IN A FEW HOURS?

Verifiable, monitored, and officially recorded testing at independent, 3rd party legitimate locations.  Gaining measurable evidence and real data using proven methods. 

Providing homemade charts w/ fabricated "evidence" in lieu of real scientific testing.  Often used by bro-scientists, snake-oil salesman, and supplement companies.

Example clinical trial result - Sasquatch

Below is a graph that doesn't really mean anything, because it could be totally made up.  All we have is Sasquatch's word.  In fact the only reason he would have to make it up, is exactly because he has no real evidence.  Otherwise, he would be eager to show it. 

Be wary of homemade charts and tables.
Be wary of homemade charts and tables.

Another shady tactic is to cite studies that don't really apply to their product, again, in lieu of presenting direct evidence of their device.

Nice logic, Bigfoot.  You're quite the saleman.
Nice logic, Bigfoot. You're quite the saleman.

Probably the sleaziest tactic is when other vest makers take our data that applies only to our vest, and try and use it to market their unproven vest. 

Your pledge will help separate science from quackery, truth from fiction.

Goal:  Experiment 1 -- "Consumer Protection" experiment -- comparing the calorie burning potential of the Cool Fat Burner and 3 other cooling vests

  • A subject will sit at a desk and have their metabolism measured for 15 min  (this will show their baseline energy expenditure – how many calories they burn, just by sitting)
  • The subject will put on one of 4 cooling vests for 45 minutes, and again, measure the calorie burn (the subject will follow the described protocols given by each respective vest maker)
  • The experiment will be independently conducted at one of the top exercise physiology labs in the country; the Cool Fat Burner will have nothing to do with it, beyond donating our vests for study

·

Stretch Goal:  Experiment 2 -- -- university group study on the Cool Fat Burner's ability to calorie burning in college-aged men over a 6 to 8 week period

  • Subjects will wear the Cool Fat Burner and Cool Gut Buster for 1.5 to 2hrs a day, 6 days a week, for 6 weeks.  "Before & After" DEXA scans (for body composition) as well as physical tests (for strength and endurance) will be tested and recorded

*** NOTE:  this experiment is optional, and we may do a variant on it, or another similar experiment at another location

I’ve been experimenting with controlled cold exposure for over twenty years.

I’ve always loved things that put me “in the moment.”  Athletics, martial arts, meditation, and cold exposure.  And because I loved to lose myself in those activities, I could perform at peak potential and get the best results.

I first started taking cold showers in high school.  I loved how you had to “let go” of yourself and be completely in the moment so as to go past the sensation of cold.  Later I started competing in “No Holds Barred” fighting, what is now called “MMA.”  During this period I started doing outside waterfall meditations, again for the serene, clear state of mind, as well as post-workout recovery.

People seem to care about accomplishments, so here are some a few that are relevant:  I was on our school’s best basketball team ever, we were state-ranked, I held several school records, and trained to have a 39” vertical leap – higher than many current NBA players.

I left college (degree in Psychology, a minor in History, a concentration in Biology) so I could focus on mixed martial arts.  On the MMA front, I won titles in numerous national-caliber tournaments and fights.  (note:  this was before digital cameras existed, so this footage is an archeological find)

That’s what happens when you let go of yourself and throw yourself into what you’re doing.  You get good!  This sensibility would directly inform the creation of the Cool Fat Burner, and demand it be world-class and give the best possible results.

But then I retired from fighting, traveled the country, stopped healthy living.  And got fat.  And then in 2010 I saw this picture:

I had a family history of heart disease and early death.  I knew I had to do SOMETHING.  I heard about people taking ice baths to burn calories… but I was older and wiser now and knew I’d never stick to ice baths or cold showers.  So I jumped online to look for a cooling vest that could do the trick.  Nothing existed, and my first reaction was frustration.  THEN IT HIT ME:  I would make the cooling vest that in that moment I wanted but didn’t exist, and offer it to others with the same goal!

Testing, experimenting, R & D.  My brother and I made the packs in our basement, and I made the first 600 vests myself!  Slowly, the word spread, and people heard about the Cool Fat Burner.

I reinvested every single penny.  We put our reputation on the line, going to an independent, 3rd party university lab, filming the whole thing, and did the original indirect calorimetry experiment that showed the Cool Fat Burner could triple a person’s metabolism. 

No one else was doing any of this; we were out there making scientific breakthroughs.  We were the first and only to show you could easily burn 500 calories in a few hours wearing the Cool Fat Burner.  None of the later vests ever tried to duplicate our experiment and prove themselves – wonder why?   Then it started to snowball.  Experiment after experiment, success after success…

I kept reinvesting back into the science, to PROVE what the Cool Fat Burner could do.

Let's see if the other cooling vests can do the same thing!

  • A lifelong passion for health, fitness, meditation, maximum performance and top-notch results. 
  • I've experimented with cold exposure for decades.
  • The Cool Fat Burner was the first.  Others followed us.
  • I started making the Cool Fat Burner by hand, in my mom’s basement, because nothing else like it existed. (If it had already existed, I would have happily bought it!)  It’s creation was natural and organic, and a labor of love.
  • We've proven ourselves time and again by putting our reputation on the line, proving ourselves with real, verifiable, independent studies.
  • Top-notch customer service & the very best in cold thermogenesis knowledge, advice, and breakthroughs.  (see upcoming CoolFatBurnerGuides.com)
  • Original research, experiments, and discoveries.  We've led the way in cold thermogenesis.  We have never copied or plagiarized anything from anyone.
  • Our testimonials are all of real users.  (Can you believe another vest maker has copied stock "Before & After" photos from the internet to their site and tried to imply those were their users?)
  • We have professional athletes, fighters, bodybuilders, fitness competitors, and all around champions who wear the Cool Fat Burner.  Our customers are smart, informed winners who demand results.
