How to Lose Belly Fat?
Just keep repeating… eat less + eat healthy + move more = lose weight.
Once that equation has penetrated the consciousness and a person is on the path to losing weight, it is time to add in the abdominal exercises to start working on that stubborn belly fat.
This is where the Slendertone System for Abs becomes the secret ingredient to success.
Wear the Slendertone Abs Belt for 30 minutes a day several times a week and start to see that belly shrinking and toning.
The use of Slendertone abs toning belt for about 10 minutes is same as doing about 600 sit-ups. Once you start using Slendertone, you can never stop using it. Its because it works for you.
What is the Slendertone System?
Think of this workout as electronic crunches.
Used on a regular basis, the Slendertone belt can help exercise the abdominal muscles enough to reduce their size while toning them to look better.
Endless repetitions of crunches at the gym can be replaced with a 30 minute session of wearing the Slendertone belt while going about a normal day.
Does the Slendertone System Work?
Not only does the Slendertone Abdominal System work for toning, shaping and strengthening the abs, but it can help during the weight loss process to reduce the belly fat that can be so dangerous to a person’s health.
These are not just claims by the maker of the Slendertone System. The product has been clinically tested and proven to be effective.
Through the use of patented Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology that has been medically proven to work all of the abdominal muscles, the Slendertone System gives a complete and effective workout to the entire abdominal core.
This same EMS technology has been used for many years by physical therapists helping people rehab their muscles after surgery or injury. It is certain that if EMS didn’t provide results it wouldn’t be used by these medical professionals.
How Does the Slendertone Abdominal System Work?
Using patented Electrical Muscle Stimulation technology, signals are sent between the gel pads that are in contact with the abs. As the signals are sent through the belt and pads the abdominal muscles contract and then relax repeatedly, giving the same workout as if doing repeated sets of crunches.
The electrical signals reach the nerves that branch to all of the three main abdominal muscles groups – the rectus, oblique and transverus abdominis muscles – causing deep contractions that strengthen the muscles.
When worn for as little as 30 minutes per day five times a week for four to six weeks, the improvement in abdominal strength and toning will be noticeable. For those with excess belly fat it might take longer, but the workout will be just as effective, and can help reduce the fat over time.
Crunches vs. the Slendertone System
Nothing says that crunches will not work. They can be done on a regular basis and there will be results. How significant the results will be depends on the dedication of the exerciser and the amount of belly fat to be lost.
If there is significant belly fat and lots of weight to lose, many dieters become frustrated with the amount of time it is taking and eventually give up on crunches.
With the Slendertone System there is almost immediate progress, and as anyone who has dieted knows, seeing progress is a great motivator to stick with the program. And keep in mind that the Slendertone Abs Belt is actually easier on the body that doing crunches.
As many exercisers have learned, doing crunches is a bit of an art form. If they are done incorrectly there can be injury to the neck or back, or at a minimum discomfort. And, if they are not done correctly there will be no benefits or results, so all that time is lost.
Diet is Important
Any time there is excess weight to lose diet is very important. This is true whether traditional exercises will be followed or the Slendertone System is going to be used.
In fact, to get the most out of a weight loss program it has been shown that combining diet with exercise is the best approach. If the Slendertone System is added into the mix, the results will be even more pronounced more quickly.
Reasons People Fail to Lose Their Belly Fat
There are many reasons that people fail in their efforts to lose weight, and most of them are true for those specifically trying to lose belly fat. Some of the most common include:
- Not actually changing anything, just hoping that the fat will mysteriously go away. This is naïve at best, and can be dangerous. If nothing changes, then the behavior that caused the excess weight and belly fat are likely to continue, which means both are likely to increase. This can lead to serious medical problems if not dealt with.
- Choosing to try a crash diet instead of eating a healthy and balanced diet almost never works. Sure, a few pounds might be lost quickly, but the reality is that a crash diet is not sustainable and as soon as normal eating patterns are resumed the weight will come back. Often times the crash dieter will gain more than was lost, and end up in worse condition than before the diet.
- Falling for one of those diet pill ads that says you can take their pill and not change anything else and magically the fat will melt away. If this were true there wouldn’t be so many overweight people in this world. It takes active participation in order to lose weight, so don’t waste time with pills that claim to work miracles.
The Bottom Line
While there is no doubt that a healthy diet and regular exercise are essential to achieve and maintain a healthy weight and body shape, sometimes that alone is not enough.
It is known that the abs need to be exercised in order to lose belly fat. The Slendertone System has been clinically proven to provide a complete and effective abdominal workout.
Add workouts with the Slendertone Abdominal System to a healthy diet, and a person determined to lose their belly fat will see results in a matter of weeks.
