3 Gimmicks That Won’t Give You Flat Abs

Tummy tuck We, unfortunately, live in a society where people like to take shortcuts to get results as quickly as possible. And with fads and gimmicks claiming to give you sexy, toned abs without you having to diet, exercise, or get liposuction, it can be easy to fall into one of these traps. This article will discuss three gimmicks that won’t give you the sexy abs that they are claiming. Read on to learn more.

  1. Waist Trainers

Popular amongst celebrities like the Kardashian’s, waist trainers are a corset that claims to give you a slimmer waist in little to no time at all. However, the thing that they aren’t telling you is the fact that as soon as you drink a glass of water or eat even the smallest meal, your waist is going to go back to normal. Yes, you are losing weight, but it’s water weight which you can gain back almost instantaneously. And, another thing to remember is that corsets are extremely bad for your ribs and can even constrict your breathing which can cause you to faint.

  1. Vibrating Ab Belts

You’ve likely seen your fair share of infomercials in which a male and female are wearing belts on their abdomen that vibrate and claim to get rid of your belly fat. However, although these belts are vibrating your muscles, they simply aren’t strengthening them and therefore aren’t burning fat. Rather than losing weight and getting stronger abs, you’ll likely just look a bit ridiculous.

  1. Skin Wraps

Popular amongst women who are trying to lose weight fast, wraps involve taking a thick wrap soaked in different all-natural oils and wrapping your waste with it tightly. Upon taking the wrap off, people say that they notice inches off of their waist. And although this might be true, it’s just water weight which means that similar to waist trainers, as soon as you drink water or eat anything, it will all come back.

There are three popular and extremely effective methods at getting the abs that you have always wanted: diet, exercise, and liposuction— don’t fall victim to the gimmicks listed above.
