does this REALLY work?


Quote  |  Reply

I was in the fitness section of Walmart the other morning and saw a  package that caught my eye.

Its called a

WAIST TRIMMER BELT

Does this really work?  When do I use it?  How often should I use it?  Does it cause stretch marks?

Help!

In short, waist trimmer belts do not work. They're just another fad for companies to make money.

I believe you wear them while you workout so you sweat. All you lose is water

Regardless if it's water you're losing or not, does it shed inches off your tummy? Hell I don't care if it's water or not  if it'll get me a smaller waist does it matter.

In short, NO.

I bought one a long time ago.  In the end, I treated it more like a girdle than a weight loss tool. 

When it comes to weight loss, anything that seems too good to be true is too good to be true. Sustainable weight loss—fat loss—takes hard work, not gimmicks.

What matters is that as soon as you take a sip of water or eat any food, the water weight comes right back on. And you do plan on eating, correct?

Unless it's temporary for a short photo shoot, weightlifting competition, or boxing weight class weigh-in, counting on a smaller waist from water loss is a horrible bet.

Understand this is not a personal attack, but anyone who reads that statement and thinks it's a good idea is in for a disappointing surprise.

honestly, if you want to lose inches off of your waist all you have to do is side twists. You can do like 300-400 a day... it takes like 5  or 6 minutes. You can easily lose 2-4 inches. Its usually very simple things like this that work.
