Belly Burner Review
As far as As Seen On TV products go, the Belly Burner has to be the perfect product. It identifies one of the most excruciating problems people face and offers a simple solution. If it works, millions of units will be sold and America will be fit as a fiddle. What could be more perfect?
First of all, I have to say that I was very skeptical when I saw the Belly Burner advert, but the manufacturer was careful not to make too many outrageous claims. The premise makes sense if you listen carefully and avoid the statuesque fitness models from the ad. The idea is that warming up your core body temperature speeds up your metabolism and burns more calories during exercise.
The above statement is very important. Contrary to my initial hopes and dreams, the Belly Burner does not claim to work for you. You can’t just throw it on and let the pounds melt away. So this As Seen On TV product isn’t a miracle, but that doesn’t mean it won’t work. The Belly Burner advertisement clearly states that this exercise belt is meant to be worn during exercise and will improve your results.
Nevertheless, I think the Belly Burner is a cool thing when it works again. If I can put it on and walk, jog, or run and burn more calories, then it’s worth the money. I looked for it but couldn’t find the Belly Burner in stores so I ordered online and got the 30 day trial offer and took advantage of it. The offer says you can get the waist belt for 30 days for only $7.95 shipping and handling and if you’re not completely satisfied you can return it but you’ll have to eat the $7.95. Well I know what you’re saying. “Has anyone ever been completely satisfied with As Seen On TV exercise equipment?” Well the answer is yes. If you have high hopes but reasonable expectations, you can find products that work for you. I am living proof.
So keep that in mind when I review the product because unlike the wild late night ads, I’m looking for products that will help me get in better shape than if I hadn’t used them at all. I had high hopes for Belly Burner and after a few weeks of use I can say so. I certainly felt some heat in the area under my belt.
I haven’t been able to prove if my metabolism increased from wearing it, but I suspect I was actually more diligent in my workouts because of its presence. I will say that it was a bit uncomfortable to wear during exercises that require a lot of bending and lifting, so I would recommend wearing it mainly during aerobic activity.
I decided to keep it because it wasn’t an expensive item and my body reacted pretty much exactly as the advertisement said it would. I have to report that I’m not overweight and only “tighten” about 1.5 inches in my waist so I didn’t have much weight to lose. For that reason, I’m not here to say that the Belly Burner has been a miracle for me, but it could very well have helped me.
My recommendation is that wearing this abdominal belt will encourage you to exercise harder and longer, then it will benefit you. If you’re expecting to put it on and wear it as a back brace and hope it burns calories while you’re in front of the computer, then it’s not for you.
Like most As Seen On TV products, the Belly Burner is supplied as part of a program to increase the value of the purchase. In this case, celebrity trainer Bobby Waldron gets you going by giving you a calorie counter and a special workout DVD so you can maximize your benefits. The program is called Blazing Abs DVD and it is quite challenging. The food journal is something I could do without, but the whole package tells me that if you eat right and exercise, you will get results with the Belly Burner. If putting on the belt helps you with that, you should definitely consider buying the product.
