Alright, I touched on the point of does the Flex Belt work in my main review post I made.
The cut and dry answer to the question of does it work is YES. The Flex Belt works. It strengthen and tones your abs and obliques.
Now I’m reading into this, and it may not be what you’re wondering, but will the belt give you a flat stomach and firm six pack abs in 6 weeks if you use it 5 times a week for 30 minutes a session?
Well the answer to that question is not so cut and dry.
What type of shape are you in now?
Are you physically active 4 or 5 times a week?
Do you already eat a pretty healthy diet that’s free of processed and junk foods?
Your Current Shape Defines Your Success
The shape you’re in now and the lifestyle habits you follow are the two biggest indicators of what your stomach and abs will look like after six weeks using the Flex Belt.
If you’re in pretty darn good shape now, don’t have a hight body fat percentage and don’t have a lot of body fat covering over your mid section, then I’d say there’s a pretty darn good chance that you’re going to see some great visual improvements to your abs and your tummy.
This is of course pending you use it 5 times a week and for 30 minutes a day.
Surprisingly from all the people I’ve talked to the biggest issue in using the Flex Belt is being consistent with it.
If You’ve got some work to do
Ok, let’s now address the rest of the group. Those of us that might not be in the best shape and could use a little clean up on the dieting front.
The belt is still going to give you strong abdominals. You’ll notice they’re harder to the touch, you’ll be able to withstand a higher intensity level then you start out on and you may even notice some abdominal definition when you look at yourself in the mirror, and this is if you do nothing else except wear and use the belt 5 days a week.
Lets Get Physical
Now, if you’re willing to step it up another notch and start exercising four of five days a week. Remember this doesn’t have to be getting a gym membership somewhere, this could be getting out for a 20 minute jog, bike ride or even a swim.
Besides the physical activity, which will burn calories and ideally burn belly fat, you’re also going to adjust your diet. What sort of adjustments? Well with your Flex belt purchase you get a free months access to their meal planning software. I haven’t used this software much, but it’s pretty cool, if you’re into planning stuff.
Getting on board with a Healthy Diet
Another option if you want to go really hardcore would be to join an online dieting program like Weight Watchers. I’m a big fan and a past user of the Weight Watchers system. It seems like a lot of work up front, but in my opinion it’s one of the best diet programs out there because it teaches you healthy eating habits that you can then carry with you for the rest of your life.
If you don’t want to go quite so hardcore the other alternative is to just make some basic modifications.
Here’s a few.
- Stop drinking soda and start drinking water (at least 6-8 glasses a day)
- No more chips, chocolate or other processed snack treats.
- Replace snack foods with fruit and vegetables
- Reduce the portion size you eat at dinner time and avoid seconds
- Skip deserts
- Cut back on bread and other carb heavy foods
- No more processed, pre-made foods
- Cut out all fast food
These tips aren’t exactly scientific weight loss items, but if you implement which ever of these tips are relevant to you then you’re going to see a difference.
The process is exercise burns calories, changing your diet reduces the calories you eat which hopefully creates a calorie deficit which means you end up losing weight each week.
Ok, sorry for that really long side bar. So now back to the topic at hand, does the flex belt work.
Yes, the belt works, but it’s not a weight loss device, it’s an ab toning device, so it works to tone abs. You need to do the weight loss work if you want those toned abs to show through.
Combine The Flex Belt, with a healthy diet and exercise routine and you’ve got a recipe for a great flat stomach for this summer.
