The Slendertone AB Belt Scam

There are a lot of things we see on the television; workout equipment has a huge market in the infomercial world. One particular piece of workout equipment that has busted on the scene is called the Slender tone Ab Belt. It is said to work out your abs and give you a six-pack by strapping on a belt that sends electric shocks to contract your muscles. The infomercials make it seem like it is a light piece of workout equipment, but does the slender tone Ab Belt actually work?

I wish I could tell you that this piece of equipment actually does work. I wish I could tell you that you can get great looking abs and lose weight just by strapping on this belt. But unfortunately, that is not the case. This is not the first time an Electric Ab Belt has broken out on the scene, and it is not the first time people have been fooled my this device.

If you listen carefully to the infomercial it says, that with a healthy diet and an exercise plan, you will see results. Well, of course you are going to see results, anyone who switches to a healthy diet and a workout plan is going to see results. The results that you get are not from the ab belt itself, but the change of diet and exercise.

Electric belts or pads are only good for muscles that have experienced an injury that has left them inactive for a while. But there is simply not nearly enough power in these ab belts to even recover an inactive muscle; they are only good for irritating the skin.
