Saran wrap around your waist to lose weight?

Okay so my roommate is a fattie and has a large stomach (not to be mean) but i remember my first roommate used to wrap his midsection in saran wrap, wear a garbage bag over it and a sweater when he went to go run and he said wrestlers did it to cut weight (he wrestled) so i thought i'd suggest it to my roommate as an added way to cut that weight down along with him coming to work out with me. So my questions are:

Is it safe?

What are the dangers?

Does it work?

What are other ways he can lose that bulge quickly?

and any tips for him?

Oh and does it work for love handles?

    What's needed to lose weight is a proper diet (with portion control!) and good solid exercise. Also drink 6-8 glasses of water a day.

    For the love handles and center region - you need to do ab & oblique exercises. Google them on the Web. Too many good ones to list here... Often they show videos of how to do the exercises properly. Ab exercises on a Swiss ball can be more effective than those performed on the floor.

    If Saran does anything it will only be temporary water weight loss. It isn't sustainable weight loss. And, certainly doesn't provide any muscle toning.

    No effort, no gain...

    Good luck.
