The informercial is outrageous. The product is the perfect example of weight loss gimmick. It’s a quick fix, but it’s unlikely to work as advertised. Yes, I am talking about the latest flat belly solution called “Tummy Tuck Belt Miracle Slimming System”.
According to the ad of Tummy Tuck Belt, you can “melt away belly fat” with “10 minute method”. It’s really simple: each day, you apply the fat burning cream called “thermal accelerator cream” to your midsection. Next, you put on the “Tummy Tuck Belt” and do the abdominal exercise for 2 minutes. For the next 8 minutes, you can resume your daily activities before you remove the belt. That’s it! In no time you will get a flat stomach as if you undergo tummy tuck!
They can say whatever they want and get away with it. The truth is: this product doesn’t work as advertised and probably never will.
First of all, the maker of Tummy Tuck Belt claims that you don’t have to alter your diet and exercise. Alternatively, “combine with exercise and see fat melting results up to 4 times greater than with exercise alone!” The thing is: there’s no real science behind these claims. The medical evidence is lacking.
In the informercial they say “We asked 2 medical universities to put Tummy Tuck Belt to the test.” However, the name of the unversities are not revealed. And, there’s no reference of the study given!
Unfortunately, many desperate consumers would automatically assume Tummy Tuck Belt is a proven product.
The thing is, the abdominal belt is a classicial diet scam. In the past, FTC took court action against companies that market abdominal exercise belt for making crazy claims. According to the FTC, “You simply cannot lose weight. You cannot lose inches. [The devices] are not as good as exercise.”
So what’s the bottom line?
Buyer aware. Steer clear from Tummy Tuck Belt. If you follow calorie-reduced diet and exercise regularly, you will lose fat-and some of it will come from your belly. It’s the only proven method to flatten your tummy. Anyone who tell you otherwise is lying.
