Turns out, wearing tight-ass underwear is going to be a whole lot easier. 

From a Japan-based brain trust of seemingly skinny clothing designers come Calorie Shapers, a pair of resin-coated biker shorts that -- when walked in for 1.5 hours per day for a week -- can chafe burn enough additional calories to offset 16 ounces of beer. 

If you can wear the sparklespanx and do a few minutes of simple math, that means a week of Calorie Shapers (and definitely not getting laid) might just burn off the turkey for the cool price of $32

Added bonus: you get to waddle around and brag about your hot, hard underwear. Classy.
