While some websites may suggest that you can lose weight using an ab belt I wanted to set the record straight. The FDA in the United States has cleared The Flex Belt for use as an abdominal toning and firming device. They’ve evaluated it and have stated that it can produce results in this area, unfortunately it is not a weight loss device.
The quickest route to weight loss is through lifestyle change, diet modification and daily physical exercise.
You see the effectiveness of an ab belt like The Flex Belt is closely related to weight loss. Why? Well if you’re carrying a bit of extra belly fat then it’s tough to see your firm and toned abdominals.
For ab belts to be as effective as possible you need to ensure that you have as little belly fat as possible.
So if you’re thinking of purchasing an abdominal belt for weight loss, maybe think again. While they can produce results for firming and toning of your abdominal muscles they won’t burn of belly fat.
