Celebrities have done some pretty crazy things to shed some weight before stepping in front of the camera. But Corbin Bleu has a method that will blow your mind!!
The newest season of Dancing With The Stars is just around the corner, and the actor is resorting to a crazy technique that has helped him slim down literally overnight in the past!
So what's his secret? Taking a bath!
Now before you go running to your tub in hopes of dropping a few pounds, we should probably tell you that this isn't your average bath.
This dip includes hot water (as hot as you can handle), 3 to 4 bags of Epson salt, and six 16 ounce bottles of rubbing alcohol. Then you just soak in the boiling concoction for as long as possible!
The theory is that because about two thirds of our body weight is water, the hot saltwater will help absorb some of it through your skin while the alcohol prevents it from going back in!
While the whole thing might sound like some insane science experiment, Corbin says it has worked wonders for him in the past, and it helped him lose 7 pounds overnight for his role in the horror movie, Nurse. He says:
"It’s crazy! You can feel it. Your skin has tightened. There’s no water weight on you whatsoever. You look in the mirror and you go, 'Damn! It works!'"
Wow! That's definitely a new one!
Normally we'd think such a fast weight loss would come with a fair share of health risks, but doctors have found that people can lose about 3 percent body weight from water and it will have no negative side effects!
But before you try this out for yourself, you should probably know that it's not anything like a trip to the spa!
In fact, Corbin says it's quite painful:
"I was just trying to focus my mind anywhere else. I was singing and trying to focus on the song and not the fact my skin was scalding. Stepping out of the bath, just from the heat, it almost felt like I was drunk."
It helps you lose weight AND it makes you feel drunk? Where do we sign up! LOLz!
Of course we kid, but this is seriously one of the strangest ways we've ever heard of an actor losing weight fast!
So if you're watching DWTS and you notice than Corbin is looking super slim, chances are, he just took a bath!
