Do slimming belts work?
Hello, I am 49 years old female. I gained a lot of weight after menopause and tried to lose some weight by couldn’t. I have been exercising lately but didn’t see any result. Yesterday I saw an advertisement about slimming belts. I wanted to know do they really work? If yes then should I get one? Please share your perspective if it helped you?
@sania-0 Hello, These belts only work superficially and have a temporary effect. When you wear something thick on your waist, it’s natural that you will sweat more from your abdomen, which will make you lose water weight that can make you slimmer temporarily. So, it’s not fat that you are losing by wearing these belts but just the extra water weight. As soon as you rehydrate, you can see your abdomen will look exactly the same as before; sadly you wouldn't have lost even an inch. this is not possible because there is no scientific evidence to support the claim of spot reduction (losing fat from one body part). Our body burns the stored fat in an overall proportion.
