If you have been watching commercials late at night, you may have run into the infamous Tummy Tuck Belt System commercial. This system claims to help you lose an entire inch of belly fat within one month of use guaranteed.
I found the entire commercial a bit too good to be true but being an action orientated person that was totally desperate to reduce belly fat, I took the plunge and purchased the belt. The belt arrived within 7 days after ordering it and it also came with a thermal cream that is used in conjunction with the belt.
How does the Tummy Tuck Belt System work?
It needs all but 10 minutes of daily use for you to reduce your waistline by an entire inch within a month – so it claims. I was intrigued by the short amount of time that it required but I also realized that their marketing angle was almost like selling a magic pill for abdominal fat loss.
The instructions state you first apply the cream to your belly and then place the tummy tuck belt over the belly and strap it up tight. After getting the belt properly situated, the next step is to begin doing two full minutes of abdominal crunches and exercise if you feel up to it. You are supposed to use the belt every day of the week for an entire month to get the one inch reduction in your waist line.
The Tummy Tuck Comparison Study Results:
I also found another commercial that used a University Study without any actual name mentioned of the university where the study took place that showed two groups of people that exercised and followed the same exact diet. One group wore the tummy tuck belt while the other group did not wear one. At the conclusion of the study the group that wore the tummy tuck belt lost double the amount of inches of their waistline than the group that did not wear the belt.
Of course this does not necessarily validate that the belt works because it did not provide any credentials associated with a true clinical study.
Is the Tummy Tuck Belt the Magic Pill for Abdominal Fat Loss?
Overall, it seems like there is some truth to the claims made in the “As Seen on TV” infomercials but nonetheless if it motivates an individual enough to get off their behind and start exercising even for 2 minutes a day, well then it’s a job well done.
