There are two underlining theories of weight loss based on which these belts are designed. The first way is by stimulating the muscles around the waist through vibrations and micro impulses. These in turn cause contraction and relaxation of muscles that are equivalent to doing sit ups and crunches. The second way is by warming up the area around the waist which causes the heat to melt the fat around the region. Apart from this there are other benefits of Slimming belts. They can act like corsets which compress the stomach and make one appear thinner. Due to this compression, one tends to feel satiated more easily, thereby curbing the appetite. They also improve the body posture and relive back ache, as one tends to sit upright and straight after wearing this belt. Following a healthy diet and appropriate lifestyle along with wearing this belt regularly can promote quicker, sustainable and healthier weight reduction. Utmost care is taken that the electrical wirings and the material used are of good quality so that the person wearing doesn’t suffer any shock. One must also wear these weight loss belts as per the doctor’s advice. Those who have any medical condition or have had so in the past should consult with their physician.

Weight Loss Belts:

1. Sauna Belt:

This cumber band’s look-alike works by warming up the abdominal region with the help of electrical batteries. They are made of fabrics within which the heating mechanism is embedded.

2. EMS Belt:
EMS belt or Electrical Machine Stimulation belt is an electrical slimming gear which renders the benefits of a rigorous workout session at the gym. This belt is battery powered like the sauna belt. But it does not create the slimming effect by warming the abdominal region. Instead, it generates electrical impulses or micro stimulations that stimulate the muscles and tighten or loosen them effectively. These stimulations render the effect of a core abs workout by generating muscular spasms like ones produced by exercising. The intensity and speed of these stimulations can be adjusted according to one’s choice and endurance level. This slimming treatment helps to create stronger and toned abdominal muscles, thereby helping one lose weight effectively.
