BACKGROUND

The Flex Belt is the only Abdominal Toning system cleared by the FDA for toning, firming and strengthening the stomach muscles. By wearing the belt for just 30 minutes each day, the devices promises to give you a more sleek and defined look in your abdominal region. What appears to be almost like a dream come true comes from the Flex Belt's ability to demand nothing from you. You simply wear it and the device stimulates the nerves in your stomach that force your muscles to contract and relax. The Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology is the same kind of technology that is used by physical therapist for patients who are unable to move their muscles themselves.

Several before and after photos are available on the site to show you the type of results people are getting. Some celebrity and professional athletes that use the Flex Belt include Jerry Rice, Janet Evans, Arianne Curry and Lisa Rinna. There is a disclaimer on the site highlighting that the Flex Belt alone won’t burn fat, but tones and tightens the muscles in your stomach. You are encouraged to follow a diet and workouts that engage the entire body for maximum results.

DIET and EXERCISE

The Flex Belt web site does offer a bonus of 30 days access to the Flex Belt meal planner with your order. This meal planner is considered to be one of the most advanced of its kind. You simply log in to get started creating your meal plan.

For new users, the Flex Belt meal planner offers a tutorial on how to use the program. This system helps you look at your current diet and use the foods you love to fill in any nutritional gaps you may be currently experiencing. You will also be able to browse some of the meal plans that have been created by other members. You have the ability to create your own recipes, enter customized foods by inputting their nutrition information and track your goals. You are encouraged to include fruits, vegetables, grains, meats, plant proteins, and eggs and dairy in your diet. Each meal plan showcases one day of meals and includes all nutrition information and your calorie count for that day. Below is a sample meal plan that was created by another member:

  • Breakfast: Honey Nut Cheerios with milk and strawberries
  • Snack: Yogurt with almonds
  • Lunch: Fajita with chicken and vegetables; orange; carrots, celery, mixed salad greens with Italian dressing
  • Snack: Hummus with carrots; strawberries
  • Dinner: Chicken with spinach, broccoli and tomatoes

You are encouraged to follow some type of diet while using the Flex Belt to get the results you desire. It is noted on the web site that the Flex Belt works to tone your stomach muscles.

The device will not burn fat inches so you must do that through dieting and performing other exercises that involve working the entire body. Since the Flex Belt does not increase your heart rate or tone other areas of your body, engaging in additional forms of exercise is necessary to achieve overall fitness.

USAGE

You can wear the Flex Belt whenever you want: at work, at home, while you're exercising or making dinner. The belt contains three gel-pads that are pre-positioned around your core region. The pads cover the central abdominals and the external oblique muscles. When the belt is operating, it stimulates these main muscle groups, which then send nerve signals to other neighboring muscles so that they relax and contract as well. It is the constant relaxing and contraction that tones the muscles and gives them more definition and strength.

The user will feel a mild sensation along their abdominals while the Flex Belt is in use. The user controls how powerful the sensations can be. The intensity goes from level 1 to 100. As strength develops, the intensity should be increased.

It is recommended to wear the Flex Belt for 30 minutes each day for 4 - 8 weeks, or until intended results are seen. In order to maintain strength and tone, the user should then wear the device 2-3 times each week. The gel pads need to be replaced after 20 - 30 sessions.

CONCLUSION

It sounds a bit too good to be true: Get great abs while you cook dinner or take a nap. But that is the promise of the Flex Belt, the only FDA cleared abdominal workout belt that is meant to tone, strengthen and firm up abdominal muscles. From Jerry Rice to Weight Watcher's and fashion magazines, many are heralding this apparent incredible invention for being the dream product for any lazy exerciser.

Just remember that all it will do is firm your abs. If you don't do any other kind of physical activity or if you eat cupcakes all day, don't ask for your refund back if you're not noticing a six-pack on your torso.

yikes Shari which CS dept are you talking about??? SOunds like you are writinG about some autoship weightloss supplement and not the flex belt since you order like 10-15times a year. Anyway just wanted to say I saw Denise Richards now uses that flex belt! I'm a fan and think she's an awesome malibu mommy.

Your customer service is the most unprofessional I have dealt with in a long time. I order online 10-15 times a year. I was in the hospital for 8 days and travel for my job. Using the US postal service is outdated. Our postman does not come to our door. He leaves slips. With my situation, I may not get mail for 10-20 days. I called in to explain my situation, the gentleman would not put a specific date to be mailed, so I could make sure to get $480 worth of product, he just said I was to call back in. Really? I work 70 hrs a week and you can't mail when requested? This is be posted in multiple locations. The lack of customer service is amazing.

oh i know, it's so hard to eat well at work, esp with a vending machine nearby. i don't see why not just nibble on carrot sticks and skip the hummus? just stay away from fatty ranch dip! btw - does wearing this ab belt make you sweat?

SO excited to get firmer abs< FINALLY something to make the crunches go away!

about snacking and using this, i don't see why not! snacking doesn't have to be junk. You can have some raw nuts or some berries.....as long as it's healthy and it's time for your snack, you should be good! your hands are free you can do whatever you want! even your laundry! I saw someone in a video with this doing all kind of stuff.

maybe you didn't see my post earlier; i've always heard 30 min a few times a week is good, not sure if its different with a flex belt though.
