The Tummy Tuck Belt came onto the market in 2010, and sells itself on the idea that it will help the customer lose unwanted pounds from the midsection in just one weeks time.* It can be purchased directly from the company’s website, and on other sales channels like Amazon and eBay for around $40.00 plus shipping and handling. When calling into their customer service line, I was routed to a customer service agent after a long wait and was greeted about 6 times in a row asking for my name. I tried giving her my name all 6 times, and she kept repeating herself?! Overall the line was not informative, as they could not even answer my most simple questions. I left feeling relieved that the conversation was over, but it was good to know they actually answer their phone unlike a lot of companies we see out there.
The Three Steps of the Tummy Tuck Belt:
- Step 1: Apply a Thermal Accelerator Cream to your midsection.*
- Step 2: Put on the Tummy Tuck Belt and do two minutes of standing abdominal tummy tighteners.*
- Step 3: Relax or do other activities for eight minutes, and you’re done! Now you can take off the belt.*
You do not get away so easy with simply purchasing the belt; you can enroll in an auto shipment of the thermal cream. In fine print it reads:
“Customers who have enrolled in our Continuity Essential Boost or Thermal Accelerator Cream automatic ongoing shipments programs will receive their first Continuity shipment in 30 days, and then every other month. Essential Boost customers will receive a full 60 day supply of Essential Boost at the reserved price of $19.99 per month, plus $6.99 shipping and handling. Thermal Accelerator Cream customers will receive a full 60 day supply of Thermal Accelerator Cream at the reserved price of $19.99 per month, plus $6.99 shipping and handling.”*
The belt is said to ignite a fat burning chain reaction, and give you an instant slimming look. While this sounds amazing, it also sounds too good to be true. One of the red flags I read on the website, “Keep your lifestyle with no added exercise and still gradually slim away fat from your belly.”* Lies. I believe that the concept is great, but it does not aid in helping someone achieve overall health and wellness in their weight loss journey long term.
Do Users Lose Weight With The Tummy Tuck Belt?
Directly on the website, it has actors in white coats pretending to be doctors doing studies on patients with The Tummy Tuck Belt. Right on the site it says, “Clinical scenes recreated by volunteers that were not paid for their time.”* There is no real evidence to why this product helps people lose any weight, nor is it really backed by science. The customer reviews after purchasing the product really spoke volumes to me, and proved once and for all that this product was actually more of a gimmick than a smart spend of money. Users reported that the uncomfortable, and constricting belt made it hard for them to even breath, and did not fit well under clothing. There was also a report of the product not doing anything after three months of wearing it daily! There were more 1 star reviews on this product than anything else I have ever seen, many saying it was a complete scam and a waste of money.*
“Wore it religiously for 3 months did not see a bit of difference. They claim you can wear it under clothes to slim…ummm NOT!! It rolls and ends up in a tight band under your boobs and you cant breathe!! SAVE YOUR MONEY! The only thing you will loose is the enegry wasted to put the dang thing on and keep in from rolling, yanking around on it every 30 seconds is a work out in itself.” Tonya Matthews*
Tinker Bell* said, “Very dissapointed! I got this with high hopes after my baby, I haven’t been able to get rid of the tummy. Well every day, twice a day, I have used this and empty now two tubes of cream. This is all a way to get your money and hang on to your seat belts ladies, your credit card will be charged without your authorization for two more creams in the amount of $19.99 each plus $9.99 each shipping and handling.” She went onto say the customer service reps are not from the USA, and the communication barrier makes it very hard. If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is and this was the review from this particular customer.
Is The Tummy Tuck Belt Easy To Use?
It is too easy to use, and that is why it simply won’t work for you. With the three steps listed above, this product has you thinking that no lifestyle changes need to be made at all to achieve a flat stomach and a six-pack as advertised on their packaging. I think people are smarter these days, as we are all pretty sensitive to scam products trying to steal our hard earned money. The side effects from using this product are going to be a lighter wallet, and a frustrated self. There were so many fuming reviews on this gimmick, that people were urging others not to waste their money. Enough said here.
Because it is a gimmick product that is sold on infomercials, there is obviously no social media channels, support groups, or even talk forums for this product. All they care about is getting your credit card information, and then being done with you after you purchase the product. While The Tummy Tuck Belt seems like a good idea, it is a better idea to simply stay away from the promises and lies. Instead of wasting your money on an expensive cream that bills you monthly, along with an uncomfortable belt that shifts around all day, look into something more sustainable.
The proper keys to losing unwanted belly fat is a simple diet clean up along with getting a sweat going at least once a day. This is backed by science, and there are other holistic products you can pair with this regime that will have you seeing results in no time. Save your money, and your time by staying away from The Tummy Tuck Belt.
