For some variants, a user simply needs to stand and let the belt do its work. Other weight loss belts require users to jog or exercise, with the reasoning that the weight loss belt magnifies their exercise routine and makes fat burn faster and longer.

How They Work

Some weight loss belts are also advertised as the cure-all for belly fat, while other weight loss belts are marketed along with a nutrition guide and diet plan. For example, the Tummy Tuck Belt relies on a fat burning cream, which users apply to their midsection before putting on the belt. The producers promise that the cream triggers a chain reaction that results in fats being burned faster. On the other hand, the Belly Burner promises to burn fats by allowing the body's core temperature to rise faster during exercise. It is therefore used during exercise in order to make exercise more efficient.

Who Makes It?

There are many different manufacturers of weight loss belts, and there are therefore many different brands of weight loss belts. Examples include the Slim Away, the Tummy Tuck Belt, the Belly Burner, and Wellness Belts.

Is It Effective For Weight Loss?

There are still no extensive studies on the effectiveness of weight loss belts, and often, the models who are used for their infomercials are already toned and strong to begin with. The intent of many weight loss belts, however, is logical: increasing the core body temperature can make cardio workouts more efficient and effective.

Experts still advocate regular exercise, with or without the weight loss belt, in order to lose weight. If users are looking for particular exercises to strengthen their core and tone their muscles, then they should also engage in strength training and resistance training exercises. Moreover, a weight loss belt should also be used with a healthy diet.

Side Effects

There are also no documented side effects of weight loss belts. Nevertheless, some weight loss belts that vibrate muscles are speculated to cause muscle fatigue if they are overused. The body needs to repair muscles, and over-fatiguing muscles can also be harmful to the muscles in the long term. Some weight loss belts also use a low-intensity electric current to stimulate the belly muscles. This can be dangerous for those who have heart problems or who have a pacemaker.


So far, positive results of the weight loss belt have shown lost fat in the midsection, as well as an overall feeling of strength.

Weight Loss Belts


Many people want to lose weight, but very few people have the time, much less the money to enroll in fitness classes or gyms in order to exercise. It is understandable why there are many products out on the market that advertise instant, painless weight loss. One of these is the weight loss belt, which users simply have to strap onto their body in order to lose belly fat. But how effective are weight loss belts, and do they have any side effects?

What Is It?

There are many weight loss belts available on the market, but the reasoning behind them is the same. A user simply needs to tie the belt around their waistline, keep it on, and watch the fat go away.

Other Reviews

Reviews for many weight loss belts run to different extremes. Some people who use them along with exercise claim that they sweated even more following exercise, which they took to mean that they were also losing a lot of weight. Other people claim that the belts do not work at all.
