Thanks for posting your query

Sauna belt is a kind of massager and does not help in weight loss.

Kindly do not waste your money in these products.The only effective and sustained way to loose weight is through diet and exercise.Since only two months are left for the marriage consider joining a gym or a Yoga class which you can do under a trainer so that he can guide you accordingly and help in weight loss.

Some suggestions for you:
1)Get up in the morning and go for a brisk walk daily for half an hour.
2)Avoid fatty,oily,junk food intake.
3)Drink lots of water.
4)Avoid smoking and alcohol.
5)Have more of salads and fruits.

You can also consult a Dietician who can plan your diet suited to your needs and also help in weight loss.

Hope this answers your query.I will be available for follow up if any.

Do you think that Sauna belt cant even help me in getting better shape by reducing the fats? And will there be any side effects due to the usage of that?

Thanks for the follow up

Fat cannot be dissolved by just massage therapy.

You require to lose excess calories by means of some physical exercise which would tone the body and help in shedding weight.

Regarding the side effects as it is a heat therapy prolonged use might burn sensitive skin .

Hope this helps
