Does a Waist Trimmer Belt Really Work?

There are many devices and items out there today to help you lose weight and look better. It seems that everywhere you turn, someone is trying to market another product or device to help you be more attractive, healthy and happy. With so many items on the market, it's easy to see then why you question the waist trimmer belt.

So what is it and does it really work?

There are different brands of waist trimmer belt but they are made from a neoprene material so that they are comfortable, durable and lightweight. They are easy to care for but should be gently cleaned after each use.

They are made with Velcro to tighten it around you for an adjustable fit on waists sized 50 inches or less. Some are also made with built-in hot and cold packs which can help with sore muscles. The weight trimmer belt is marketed as a product that helps you lose unwanted weight, inches or fat from your waist.

How does it work?

The claim is that the waist trimmer belt works by using the body heat that is generated during exercise and perspiration that occurs during the time of using the belt to help reduce weight on the stomach area. Basically, you put on the belt before you are going to be working out anyway. You can use it while jogging, working in the gym, using gym machines and equipment and during weight training exercise.

The weigh trimmer belt does not melt away fat or give you a magically flat stomach just by wearing it. What it actually does is help to promote more sweating and more fluid loss that can contribute to more weight loss. If you were to weight right after a workout with the waist trimmer belt, you might notice a decrease in the pounds.

The downside...

However, like most weight loss products that sound like a good thing, there is a downside to the weight trimmer belt. Since the weight loss is contributed to fluid loss, as soon as you rehydrate, you will likely gain any lost weight right back.

It's not possible to spot reduce and the waist/ stomach is a problem area anyway because it is designed to store fat as its primary function.

However, this does not mean that products like this are not without their own uses. Many experts believe they are helpful because people will believe they will work, contributing to weight loss they could have achieved anyway but the device helped them to believe that they could do it.

Some also believe that the waist trimmer belt can help eliminate more toxins through the body as you work out. This could be based on some truth since it causes you to sweat more but you will still need to exercise and eat a healthy, balanced diet when using the waist trimmer belt.
